So, how do you learn, without anyone teaching you?

  1. Take a research paper you would like and choose a section (Abstract, Introduction, Conclusion, etc.).
  2. Read the section, note down important key points (Encoding).
  3. Now, try to rewrite the section from your notes (Decoding).
  4. Compare your writing with the original paper. Note down what you have learned.
  5. Repeat.
