Brain-Based Teaching and Learning

This webinar provides an overview of brain-based teaching and learning theories and research. Topics include an overview of key findings from Brain Rules: 12 Principles for Surviving and Thriving at Work, Home, and School, a discussion about the triune model of the brain, and an explanation of the role the autonomic nervous system plays in student learning and development. By deepening their understanding of basic principles of neuroscience and neuroanatomy, webinar participants are able to implement programming and teaching on their campuses that begin with the brain in mind.

Learning outcomes include becoming familiar with the triune model of the brain and how the model is evident in teaching methods, learning the differences between the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems, and strategies that increase brain-based teaching and learning.
