Neuroscience and Learning: Facts and Fantasies
Online Events Archive
Science of Behavior Change Summit 2016 - December 7, 2016
Neuroscience (aka brain-based learning) is one of the hottest topics in training and education. Over 40,000 neuroscience studies have been published in scientific journals. Learning practitioners are drawn to this research as a source of wisdom for their learning designs. Yet despite its promise, neuroscience is a fairly young field. Questions remain. Are neuroscience findings valid? Are they relevant to learning design? Are they useful?
In this session, noted research translator Will Thalheimer will review the research on neuroscience. You will explore research that debunks common myths, and you’ll pinpoint misconceptions related to brain-based learning. You will also receive practical suggestions for how to approach neuroscience recommendations.
