Class Details

An interactive and collaborative exploration of what neuroscience research reveals about how the brain learns and what factors can be influenced to facilitate successful learning. Topics include the neuroscience of attention, emotion, understanding, memory, and executive functions. Emphasis will be on the neuroscience applications to strategies correlated to the research. There will be opportunities for students to gain insight into their own learning processes Background will be provided by interactive lecture. Students will participate in small group and full class discussions based on their reading of assigned articles. They will engage in guided research projects in areas of their own interest and share their insights in presentations. In these, they will demonstrate their understanding of the medical model to evaluate primary neuroscience research studies for validity, value, and expand this understanding into implications and strategy applications to facilitate more successful and meaningful learning for themselves and to teach others.
