Event description
Understanding how our brains learn is essential for all teachers.

About this Event

In the past 20 years, there has been a dramatic increase in our understanding of the human brain, how it develops and learns and how best to teach students. Many of the older ideas and strategies around learning and memory have been shown to be incorrect and recent findings paint a very different picture of the human brain and its capacity to learn. Teachers have the opportunity to learn and adapt their teaching practices to incorporate many of these findings into their own teaching strategies. This course will cover many of the recent findings and discuss the new concepts and ideas around the neuroscience of learning.

In this course, participants will first learn about the recent findings in the neuroscience of learning including:

• The importance of understanding neuroplasticity and how the brain works.

• How memories are formed.

• Hebbian learning and how it can be facilitated in the classroom.

• Attention and its vital role in learning and memory.

• The role of emotions in memory formation and facilitation.

• The good and bad aspects of stress and its impact on learning and the brain.

• The brain basis of addiction and how it can be used to instill a lifelong passion for learning.

The focus will be on how teachers can implement strategies in the classroom to improve learning, memory and most importantly deep understanding.

All participants get access to an online discussion and advice group for 12 months. They have access to courses, webinars, videos and regular live chat groups to continue their learning. Dr Mark will respond to queries and post new ideas and resources on a regular basis.
