The workshop takes place November 17 from 9am to noon at the Tutorial Room 1 (TR1), Ground Floor, Teaching and Learning Complex (TLC).

About the Workshop

This workshop looks at how brain-based learning theories can be applied in the university classroom to enhance learning.  First participants will examine the neuroscience of learning and some of the tenet of brain-based learning theories then determine how the theory can be applied at the university level.

Participants will also study techniques for making the classroom more engaging, learner-friendly and successful. You will be introduced to exciting, easily-applied techniques that are based on how the human brain assimilates and retains information..

*Participants will receive a certificate of participation on the completion of the workshop.

Topics include:

  • The Neuroscience of Learning
  • Theories of learning
  • Teaching and Learning Techniques

By the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the research findings regarding the basic neuroscience of learning;
  • Illustrate the relationship between the neuroscience of learning and the theories of learning;
  • Describe the concept of brain-based learning;
  • Evaluate teaching and learning techniques for appropriateness based on the brain-based learning theory.
