Teaching that Sticks: A Workshop on How the Human Brain Learns Best

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Classroom teachers expect students to remember and apply what they've been taught. But with the competing demands on attention, interest and time, we know that a lot of what students have been taught may quickly be forgotten. What can be done to minimize forgetting, enhance memory and lead to better learning and comprehension? Can teachers really see a significant improvement in what their students remember? Yes.
The Science of Learning is a growing field and teachers around the world are benefitting from new findings in the science of learning about how the human brain handles new information, retains and recalls it, how teaching methods can interrupt forgetting and cause information to be deeply encoded in memory, how to teach self-regulation and learning mindsets and more. This workshop provides teachers with the latest in high quality research on learning and provides several practical take-aways that can be immediately applied in the classroom to enhance learning.
