Sit & Get Won’t Grow Dendrites: 20 Professional Learning Strategies That Engage the Adult Brain
About This Course
Visualize the worst presentation that you have ever been a part of as an adult learner. Now visualize the best one. No doubt there is a considerable difference between the two professional development opportunities.
In fact, many presenters to adult audiences do not realize that having participants sit and get information is not the most effective way to ensure that the information sticks to their brains.
Participants are engaged while learning the answers to the following three basic questions:
- What are 20 strategies I can use to make my professional development experience unforgettable?
- What techniques appear to result in sustained adult behavior change?
- What are 10 things that keep adults living well beyond the age of 80?
This workshop is for anyone who teaches the adult brain, including: administrators, staff developers, teacher leaders, instructional coaches and coordinators, college and university professors, and business and community leaders.
