East Campus Library
Have you ever wondered how your students' brains process new information and how your course design and/or class environment may hinder or support this learning? If so, this workshop is for you! As a participant in this workshop, you will be introduced to the basic neuroscience concepts of learning and memory as well as the factors that interfere with and enhance learning in the classroom. You will also have the opportunity to learn about and reflect on techniques that you use in your own classes to create an environment that enhances learning.
