What is this programme about?


Every day, brain researchers discover more about how our brain functions, the causes of various illnesses and how to optimise thinking, learning and performance. Unfortunately, there is still an existing gap between what brain researchers know, and what educators put into practice. This workshop will bridge some of these gaps.

In this workshop, you will be introduced to a selection of brain science, psychology and behavioural science must-knows for adult educators, coaches and executives and gain new learning, strategies and skills you can apply immediately. You will also be able to determine your mindset type through a custom designed online quiz.

Applying what neuroscience reveals about our brain can enrich everything we do. We are better able to comprehend why we do what we do. In this fun and engaging session, you will be exposed to interesting presentations, custom designed videos, games and engaging interactions, where you will learn scientifically proven skills and techniques, and their applications in everyday life, learning and human engagement.  You will get to know your brain, those of your learners and others around you.

No prior scientific knowledge is required to attend.
