We are thrilled to announce that Jillian Douglas of IdeaLearning Group has been selected as a concurrent session speaker for the 2012 “Ignite Your Mojo” ASTD Puget Sound Workplace Learning Conference, scheduled for Friday, October 5. Her session is titled “Your Brain is Not a Bucket: Learning Through Experience”.
The brain is not a finite container to fill, but a complex system of dynamic connections that interpret, process, and organize an amazing amount of information. Most learning takes place through direct experience not formal instruction. This session looks at the shortcomings of traditional lecture-based training through the filter of brain-based learning research. What is the role of experience and sensory intake in learning? How can we implement brain-based learning to create richer, long-lasting learning experiences?
Hope to see you there!
