Featured Higher Education Presenter: Kendall Zoller, Ed.D.

Today, higher education educators face growing pressure to deliver results while serving an increasingly diverse student body.

Fortunately, ongoing research has expanded our knowledge of both how learning affects the human brain, and the behaviors which support effective learning.

These principles apply across cultures and disciplines.  Learn how to harness them for your classroom in Seven Ways to Increase Student Attention and Learning with Dr. Kendall Zoller.
