How to Implement Brain-Based Learning
Strategies in Your Courses

Teaching Students in a Multitasking Culture

Isn’t it time to answer the question of what is going on in our students’ heads? If you have had students who simply seem disengaged, your answer has arrived. A glimpse inside their heads will not only reduce confusion and increase productivity—it will also make you a more effective teacher.

Get that insight from the experts in How to Implement Brain-Based Learning Strategies in Your Courses. When it comes to the learning process, a little insight into brain function goes a long way. In this presentation you will learn to engage different regions of the brain to develop student-centered teaching methods and maximize learning. You will also learn current teaching strategies that address neuroanatomical and neurochemical facets of your students’ learning processes.
