Webinar Series: Brain-based Practices for Teaching & Learning

To help meet the needs of our evolving educational landscape, UP for Learning is hosting a series of online training sessions for educators and those partnering with youth in learning experiences that focus on

  •  the impact of stress on learning,
  • the power and impact of positive self-talk, and 
  • how the brain learns.

The central goal of this course is to better understand how the brain learns and effective brain-based practices and strategies for teaching and learning. Participants will explore the impact of mindset, metacognition & motivation on learning so they can help increase students’ potential for learning and life. Following each live training, participants will be provided with a lesson and resources they can immediately implement with youth to help them become more effective learners in any setting.

All sessions will be held on Zoom from 9:00-10:15 a.m. If you are unable to attend at this time, you can register and a recording of the webinar will be sent to your email.
