EAGSR 7116 Learning and the Brain: Fitting the Nurture of Teaching to the Nature of Learning

In this course, educators will explore how neuroscience can be used to improve student learning. Learning occurs through the biological medium of the brain. Activating and altering neurobiological processes within the nervous system is key to learning. Participants will examine the physiological mechanisms involved in memory, executive function, attention, emotion, motivation, stress, and resilience, and investigate practical applications for improved teaching methods and curricular design.
