How the brain learns has been the topic of much research in the last twenty-five years, with significant advances in our understanding of how the brain works. Does tailoring training to individual learning styles enhance learning? Is single-minded repetition (practice, practice, practice!) the most effective way to enhance mastery? How is memory encoded, consolidated and retrieved? Why do elaboration, generation and reflection enhance the brain’s ability to retrieve and retain knowledge and how can they be incorporated into training sessions? As a result of this interactive presentation, participants will be able to: separate myths from research-based findings about learning and training; identify strategies for getting and keeping the brain’s attention; and apply brain research on memory to enhance learning and training effectiveness. Join us for this engaging session and find out how discoveries in neuroscience can provide insights on how people learn -- and how to engage them in the training room. Please note this is an updated version of the course PDT-BusTT-04 (Train for the Brain).
