Do you know what it takes to advance your students' learning? - Anna Hasper

How we teach in the language classroom is often based on our intuition. We often feel that some things work, and others simply don't. However, modern day research on how the brain learns has identified several ways of learning that better match our brain's learning preference, so to speak. Interestingly, very little of this science of learning has been transferred to the language classroom.  As teachers, however, we are in the business of learning, so doesn't it seem logical that we gain some insights into what makes learning happen in order to make learning more effective and helps our learners progress more effectively? This session will explore how students' learning can be enhanced through applying some of the principles of cognitive science.
