About the Richard Feynman Learning Technique

What it is – How it works?

[By staff reporters]

I’ve taught at the undergraduate, graduate, business and medical school levels. And, I’ve used and modified the Feynman technique at every level.



Learning From the Richard Feynman Technique

  1. Identify the subject. Write down everything you know about the topic.
  2. Teach it to a child. If you can teach a concept to a child, you’re way ahead of the game.
  3. Identify your knowledge gaps. This is the point where the real learning happens.
  4. Organize + simplify + Tell a story. Start to tell your story.

Assessment: Some time the Feynman Technique even reminds me of the 70-20-10 Leadership Model.

Conclusion: Your thoughts are appreciated.

  1. Shinichiro (or Sin-Itiro) Tomonaga,

    Almost all books about the history of quantum electrodynamics (QED) talk extensively about Richard Feynman and Julian Schwinger and almost completely ignore the great Japanese physicist Shinichiro (or Sin-Itiro) Tomonaga, the third recipient of the same Nobel prize. The three physicists won the Nobel “for their fundamental work in quantum electrodynamics, with deep-ploughing consequences for the physics of elementary particles,” according to the Nobel prize website.


    In the late 1940s, Tomonaga studied a paper by the American physicist S.M. Dancoff, who tried but failed to find a way to cancel out the infinite quantities (or divergences) in QED. Tomonaga noticed a mistake (applying his super-many-time theory together with methods by Wolfgang Pauli and the Swiss physicist M.E. Fierz) in Dancoff’s calculation. By fixing it, he got rid of the divergences, thus discovering the re-normalization method (he proceeded by calculating several fundamental quantities).
