Learning with the Adult Brain in Mind
with Drs. Kathleen Taylor and Annalee Lamoreaux
You are invited to register for our first quarterly Adult Learning Innovation Institute, designed for adult learning professionals who want to develop and refine competencies and capacities to help adults learn in diverse, changing contexts with the latest innovative practices.
The idea that our brains are responsible for what we think and what we do is hardly news, but now that neuroscientists can look into the workings of a healthy, living brain, we are finding out some aspects of brain function can actually be counterproductive when adults are trying to learn new ideas. In this Adult Learning Innovation Institute module, participants will learn what the brain does and why it does it. We will then discover innovative ways we can facilitate learning from the perspective of how the brain works.
This interactive practice-based learning experience will likely confirm many aspects of your current practice, while giving you fresh perspectives and strategies to enhance your work with adult learners. Understanding more clearly why the brain works the way it does will enable you to enlarge on these strategies as well as to develop new approaches and new ways of thinking about teaching and learning in a wide range of settings.
Note: the Institute includes three sessions:
