When surgeon Ryan Jones isn’t operating on patients, Dr. Jones is a busy entrepreneur aiming to redefine how students of all ages learn boring, but necessary course material.
Dr. Jones is co-founder of CoursePics, an impressive Phoenix-based start-up that combines elements often used in effective marketing – strong visuals, storytelling, surprise, and originality – to teach otherwise leaden topics such as biology, pharmacy, and social and behavioral science.
Join host and reputation coach Dean Rotbart as he tests the CoursePics method of learning, challenging Dr. Jones – and listeners – to quickly visualize and create a story based on ten randomly selected objects, and then commit those objects to long-term memory.
