The Neuroscience of Stress and Learning

About This Webinar

Parents and educators are confronted on a daily basis with issues related to stress – sometimes their own stress and that of their colleagues – and increasingly the chronic or acute stress of their children and students. The traumatic events that have affected so many communities this year, including hurricanes and fires and violence, have resulted in heightened awareness of the stressful impact of trauma; and science has started to shed light on the devastating effects of chronic stress that many children and adults experience. We mostly think of the negative aspects of stress, but some amount of stress is inevitable and sometimes even beneficial. In this webinar, Dr. Lou Whitaker, President of Open Minds Enterprises, will discuss the neuroscience of stress, the effect of stress on learning and development, and tools and strategies for helping our students and ourselves deal with stress, both acute and chronic.

  • The neuroscience of stress and its effects on the brain and body
  • The impact of stress on learning and development
  • Surviving, reducing, taming and using stress

Webinar hosting presenter Betsy Hill
Betsy Hill is an experienced educator and President of BrainWare Learning Company. She has studied the application of neuroscience to teaching and learning with Dr. Patricia Wolfe and other experts and works with educators, clinicians and corporate trainers on using neuroscience research to address some of the most perplexing problems in education, including closing the gap for historically underperforming students. She addressed issues of college and career preparedness as a trustee and board chair at Chicago State University. She holds a Master of Arts in Teaching and an MBA from Northwestern University, and teaches strategy at Lake Forest Graduate School of Management and the University of Illinois Chicago.

I like to describe myself as a "recovering" educator, but the truth is that I am more excited than ever about what neuroscience is uncovering about the brain and how we can use that information to enable each individual to reach his or her cognitive potential. I'm here to share what I've been learning over the last ten years and to continue learning from others in this amazing and fast developing field.
