This course is designed to further your understanding of current research about the mechanics of how humans learn and process information including aspects of memory, emotions, movement. We’ll demonstrate how these studies can make a difference in the way you teach your students. Guest speakers, activities to build critical thinking and inquiry, and ways to make the practice of thinking like a scientist more overt for students will lead to making cognitive learning more meaningful in our daily teaching practice.

This hybrid course is designed for teachers of grades 3–12 and P.E. Teachers

This is a repeat course. Former participants cannot receive credit.
