Course DescriptionEducators sculpt their students' brains with every interaction yet, for years, we have been changing students' brains based on intuition and trial-and-error. Neuroeducation provides us with insights into how the brain learns and remembers that can have profound implications on our actions in the classroom. These insights help educators fine tune their instruction, make content accessible and understandable to all their students, and create learning experiences that will help students process and remember information more effectively and efficiently. During this interactive workshop, participants will discover teaching strategies, and the neuroscience behind them, that will help students learn more effectively and remember more successfully.
