In Whatever Field of Study
Here are some suggestions to improve your learning in whatever aspect of life it suits.

1. Get good equipment ie. a good experienced horse. I remember other riders talking about getting so well trained of a horse that 'any monkey could ride it.'. Then you are pretty much guaranteed to win. I used to think so too. But I've experienced it differently.
Yes, you do get a lot of wins riding that well trained horse. Yes, a good horse makes a good rider. But you also have to be willing to put in the time and practice to learn how to get the best out of that horse.
My main goal for competing was always to see how well I was progressing from the last show.
2. Get the best Mentor (ie. Trainer) you can find.
I have some of my best memories from that time. I remember a funny story about me that I want to share. A bunch of us were training and practising in the arena as usual and I had just completed my turn. I stood atop my horse resting in the corner. The next thing I knew, I had woken up on a couch! Apparently, I have fallen asleep on my horse and had fallen off while still asleep! Ah, those were the days!
3. It takes Time to Learn the Necessary Skills.

One big example for me, is that I'm not very tall. I have short legs. Most teenagers are taller than me. So I had to learn to use spurs well in order to really communicate to my horse.
4. Learn from Other Professional Sources.
This tip wouldn't be complete without mentioning the fact that today when I'm researching and learning from professionals or experienced people, I binge watch a ton of youtube channels. I consider youtube to be like a university.
5. Developing Skills Through Experience.
6. Assist the Experts(ie. Judges). One of the opportunities I have is to volunteer for my reining club. Our judges require an assistant or 'scribe' as we call them to record the scores as the judge is scoring each maneuver for the contestant's run. I started to scribe over 20 years ago to not only help the club but also to keep on top of the changes in the rules. It also allowed me to see first hand who the judges were scoring our runs so that I would know best as well. Perhaps that is possible for your too.
7. Upward and Onward. For me, the last tip is one of moving up. As our skills progress, we need to better our tools if we want to progress even more. I just joined a prestigious art business school that I hope will be beneficial in the future.
Good luck in your advancement of learning.
Putting my spin on improve your learning.
