What Is Learning?

Tue, May 1, 2018 · 11:00 AM · Central Time (US & Canada)
About This Webinar

Students go to school to learn. Teachers take professional development courses to learn. Employees participate in training courses to learn. We learn new languages, computer programming, golf, bridge, social media etiquette and emojis, and how to tie our shoes. But what does it really mean to learn? And how does learning happen in the brain?

In this webinar, we will dig underneath the surface of teaching and learning and explore the most important things teachers, parents and trainers of all kinds need to know about learning in the brain and how to create the most effective learning experiences. Spoiler alert: A teacher or trainer does not take their knowledge and transfer it to the learner. In this webinar, we will discuss what really happens based on sound neuroscience.

Agenda

Featured Presenters
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.
