Course Details

EDU607 Learning & the Brain

This two hour course will allow participants to understand:

  • How the brain encodes, manipulates, and stores information
  • Why meaning is essential for attention
  • How emotion can enhance or impede learning
  • Why different types of rehearsal are necessary for different types of learning

    Participants will come to understand that you don't have to be a scientist to understand brain-compatible teaching; you'll be far more effective when you base teaching practices on the very best scientific information. Classroom-proven examples of simulations, projects, and problems that make curriculum more meaningful will be presented. Ways to use the visual and auditory senses to enhance learning in all grades and subjects will be explored. 1 Credits
