How the Brain Learns: Utilizing the Role of the Sense Modalities in Teaching and Learning

How the Brain Learns: Utilizing the Role of the Sense Modalities in Teaching and Learning Online

Presenter:
Peggy Ryan, Director of Resource Learning Services

As human beings, we take information in through the senses.  We see it, hear it, touch it, move through it, smell it. This plays a major role in how we learn--though in Anatomy Lab, we might try to avoid the last one!  The chance of learning and, very importantly, of retrieving that learning when we need it, increases with the number of sense modalities that are activated when we receive the information in the first place.  

Why cultivate a learning environment for diverse learners?  First of all, because some conditions (e.g., vision and hearing impairments) cause people to need specific learning environments; and second, because a diverse learning environment benefits everyone.  Join Peggy Ryan, Director of Resource Learning Services to explore the role of the sense modalities in learning and to learn more about this fascinating topic.
