Session: Recent developments in our understanding of how the brain works mean that we know more about how learning occurs. As a result there are clear principles for how we can assist the brain's natural capacity to learn. These new findings have yet to make a real impact in higher education. This session invites participants to explore developments in ‘brain-friendly’ teaching and to consider the potential implications for their practice in teaching.
On completion of this session, participants will be able to:
· Appraise their teaching strategies in light of recent developments in the understanding of how the brain works
· Plan for how to adapt strategies introduced in the session for use with their learners.
