“It is literally neurobiologically impossible to build memories, engage complex thoughts, or make meaningful decisions without emotion.”
— Mary Helen Immordino-Yang
Research in the field of affective neuroscience by Mary Immordino-Yang, Antonio Damasio, and Jaak Panksepp is beginning to reveal a very different picture of how people learn.
In this session, we will examine the often-accepted mistakes drawn in interpreting classical studies such as the Forgetting Curve. We'll examine how memory can be modified, and explore the science behind the power of storytelling. Through it all, we'll look at how the affective context model provides a sound basis for learning design and delivery. You'll leave the session equipped to map your design concerns and make better decisions when it comes to resources and experience design.
