LEARNING TO THINK / THINKING TO LEARN

2 Day Workshop

Day 1

Session 1: The Secrets of Human Thinking

Believe it or not, the brain doesn’t function in the manner we’ve long thought. During this session, we will dive into the surprising (and often counterintuitive) secrets behind how the brain works to make sense of reality. The keystone concepts explored will change the way you think about learning and highlight the importance of developing a clear and coherent course philosophy.

Session 2: The Learning Trajectory / Assessment

This session will examine the foundations of human learning. How do people take in, personalize, and utilize new knowledge? Underpinning
this exploration will be a discussion of Learning Objectives, the importance of aligning these to the unique level of student learning, and how these guide assessment practices.

Session 3: Memory

We know it’s important…but how exactly does it work? In this session, we will explore how memory works, how memory fails, and how best to support it to ensure learners form deep, lasting memories of newly
learned material.

Session 4: Attention / Engagement

We learn only that which we attend to. So, how exactly does attention work and how can we ensure students are focusing it properly? During
this session, we will dissect attention, how it works, and how to guide it effectively in both live and digital environments.

Day 2

Session 1: Key Teaching Strategies

Believe it or not, the brain doesn’t function in the manner we’ve long thought. During this session, we will dive into the surprising (and often
counterintuitive) secrets behind how the brain works to make sense of reality. The keystone concepts explored will change the way you think
about learning and highlight the importance of developing a clear and coherent course philosophy.

Session 2: Key Learning Strategies

As trainers and educators, there is only so much we can do to support learners. At the end of the day, learning is truly the responsibility of the
individual doing the learning. In this session, we will explore techniques we can pass along to others to give them the best chance
to effectively and efficiently guide their own learning.

Session 3: Feedback

Arguably the most important instrument in the trainer’s arsenal is feedback. In this session, we will examine the 3-pillars of effective
feedback, how to target feedback to encourage student learning, and how to use feedback to guide and evolve our own practices.

Session 4: Stress & Emotions

There is no learning without emotion – unfortunately, the wrong emotions can de-rail learning completely. In this session we will explore
the impact of emotions (in particular, stress) on thinking & learning, consider how to leverage emotions to benefit memory, and examine
ways to help others recognize and manage unhealthy stress.
