This course is empowering for teachers and students. It looks at how the brain works and the learner profile of the students in the class and discusses practical ways that teachers can make every class a ‘learning to learn’ class where students have opportunities to summarise and reflect on their learning.
Intended Audience: Post primary teachers, upper level primary teachers, Guidance Counsellors, Study Skills Co-ordinators, Parents & students
By the end of the course participants will:
✅ understand the brain and the role the different parts play in well-being and learning - the survival brain, the stressed brain, the thinking brain, the contented brain.
✅ engage in a range of activities to enable the learner to establish their learner profile - their preferred learning style(s) and learning needs.
✅ discuss the implications for learning and review a range of strategies - active and reflective - to draw on the learner’s innate strengths, empowering them to become independent learners.
