At the heart of teaching is a desire by teachers to make a positive contribution, a difference, and impact on their students. Finding the keys to unlock, enhance and engage each young person in the experience of learning is a constant search and thirst for teachers.

Neuroscience offers an effective way to achieve these intentions and aligns with one of the key recommendations of Strong Beginnings- the 2023 Report of the National Teacher Education Expert Panel. The report notes that there should be a focus on brains and learning in teacher formation with an understanding of why specific instructional practices work and how to implement these practices.

The Revitalising Educators: Neuroscience for sustainable educators program involves a series of eight discrete but interconnected sessions delivered over four weeks online by Andrew Fuller (www.andrewfuller.com.au, www.mylearningstrengths.com) supported by The Brown Collective faculty www.thebrowncollective.com.au) headed by Dr Stephen Brown.

Each module has been carefully designed to be both practical and impactful. Sessions include:

  • Accelerating Learning with Neuroscience
  • Optimal Schedules & Rhythms for Learning Mindsets
  • Anxiety
  • Avoidance & Learning
  • Biohacking Learning for Motivation & Improved Academic Outcomes
  • Neurodiversity & Students Making Learning Stick
  • Leading Brain based Learning in your setting.     

 

Key takeaways

  • deeper understanding of the brain's learning processes: learn how learning occurs
  • strategies for structuring learning experiences: design educational experiences that maximise student achievement
  • tools for engaging learners: develop techniques to captivate and motivate effectively
  • template for optimal schedules: learn about the role of body clocks and daily rhythms, and how they impact learning outcomes
  • ways to reduce anxiety: discover methods to alleviate stress and improve the learning experience
  • information about neurochemical imbalances: identify signs and develop responses
  • strategies for converting neurodiversity into neuroadvantage: tailor learning experience
  • techniques to enhance memory
  • template fort leadership capabilities: work with peers and school leadership teams effectively
  • deeper understanding of effective implementation: create action plans to integrate key learnings into the classroom and share them with peers.
