Course Description

This ExpertTrack teaches you the basics of neuroscience and learning. This teaching ExpertTrack will help you understand the unique human brain. You will examine the limbic system, the central nervous system, and neuroplasticity to discover how it affects memory and learning.

It can be difficult to discern fact from fiction when it comes to educational neuroscience.

These are the most common neuromyths in the teaching community. You can confidently apply the knowledge gained from this course by dispelling any misconceptions about learning and brain function.

Learn about the role of social-emotional learning and the relationship between stress and memory in the classroom. This course will focus on the use of neuroscience in educational theory. It will include research by Dr Louis Cozolino about the evolution of the social mind and Nine things educators should know about the brain. You'll gain a better understanding of brain-based learning in different contexts.

You can become a better educator by learning more about the brain and how it works.

Learn how to create lesson plans that increase learning capacity and memory by using educational neuroscience-based teaching strategies.

The practical application of neuroscience research to education and leadership will be discussed in order to create optimal learning environments.

Learning in 21st century is changing rapidly due to the increasing evidence-based research on educational neuroscience (brain sciences). These new opportunities are vital for educators.

This ExpertTrack will teach you how to use neuroscience in leadership to build trusting teams and foster a culture that values feedback.
