Session Description

Training the Brain: The Neuroscience of Learning and Its Implications for Training and Performance

Most T&D professionals are familiar with a variety of best practices and good principles to improve learning and performance. But why are these practices effective?
This presentation will review adult learning theory with a focus on advances in the neuroscience of learning. By understanding the link between training and the brain, we can better inform our instructors and improve performance in learners, both during and after training. We will explore how the brain responds to a range of learning modes and activities, what happens when we remember, and how we can take advantage of that in our training.

Learning Objectives:

Participants will be able to identify key areas and processes of the brain related to learning and memory.

Participants will be able to recognize and dispel common myths about learning and the brain.

Participants will be able to generate new methods or tools of training that can take advantage of how deep learning happens in the brain.

Target Audience:  Intermediate, Advanced
