Webinar: Brain Friendly e-learning
Thursday 29th June 2017, 12:00 noon
In recent years cognitive scientists have made significant discoveries about how the human brain works and some of these discoveries have caused us to re-examine our understanding of how we learn. In this webinar ELN Director and Learning Architect John Curran will explore some of these key discoveries and evaluate what they mean for us as learning designers. Do we throw away all the old learning theories and jump on the neuroscience bandwagon or is there a middle road that will guide us to designing better learning interventions?
John will cover:
• What theories, models or frameworks guide our learning designs
• How the brain works in 5 minutes!
• What the latest developments in cognitive science tell us about learning
• How can we use these new discoveries to improve our learning designs?
Sign-up now to exercise your own brain in learning about this cutting edge new science!

Show Your Work Unconference
Thursday 14th September 2017
Too many conferences these days are all PowerPoint and no banana.
