3. Brain-Friendly Teaching
12 hours - 2 modules of 6 hours each.

Brain science and research has direct applications to classroom teaching and learning. We ignore the research at the peril of our own success as well as at the success of our students. Teaching with methods that don't respect brain science is like swimming against the current: teaching is more exhausting, students learn less, and students like class and content less. When we align our teaching with how the brain best learns, we are going with the current. Students learn more, enjoy class more, and teaching is more effortless and enjoyable for us. In this workshop, learn six core principles of brain-friendly teaching. For each principle, you will come away with new Structures, tools, tips, and techniques to make your teaching more brain compatible and more scientifically sound.
