 How We Learn: Applying the Latest Research from the Field of Neuroscience 

Comedian Emo Phillips said, “I've read that the brain is the most amazing thing in the universe. But look what’s telling us that.” The human brain is the most complex neural network in the world. We can’t perform complex calculations as fast as a computer, but no computer can simulate a neural network of 86 billion neurons, each connected to thousands of other neurons, creating trillions of synaptic connections.

In this interactive session, we’ll review new neuroscientific findings about the human brain and discuss exciting implications for the work we do every day with adult learners. You will gain short-term tips that can be implemented immediately and long-term strategies that can help guide your plans for the months and years ahead. And you might learn something about your own brain too!
