Jazz Up Your Lectures with Six Learning Principles Based on Brain Science

Author: Emily Versace Subject: All Created: 2020-10-29
From The Author I love using Sharon Bowman’s six learning principles. They are a quick and easy way to remember the elements I want to include in my lessons to maximize their effectiveness. In this toolkit, I am sharing her six principles and many related activities. I hope you will find them as useful as I have. - Emily Versace

Toolkit Overview

Discover how the brain works and what strategies really make a difference in helping students take-in, store, retrieve, and use information. Explore six brain-based learning principles that will help make your classroom a more engaging, interactive, and dynamic learning environment. Learn by doing in this hands-on learner-centered workshop based on ideas from Sharon Bowman’s book “Using Brain Science to Make Training Stick. This toolkit is based on a FLEX day presentation I gave with the same title.
