What if the training you deliver in the virtual classroom was so vibrant and compelling that people clamored to attend your sessions? Your ability to connect with, engage, and stimulate the thinking of your participants is directly linked to your understanding of the neuroscience of learning. Our brains ignore what is predictable and boring. This webinar explore the brain’s needs for novelty, contrast, meaning, and emotion to capture and keep attention online. Increase novelty by creatively using relevant games and problems. Enhance contrast by incorporating a variety of facilitation techniques. Build meaningful connections with collaborative, social learning approaches. Harness learner emotion with storytelling frames.

This webinar explores six brain-based guidelines that leverage the interaction and collaboration tools in the virtual classroom to create active engagement:
   1. Active engagement = active brains.
   2. Neurons that fire together wire together.
   3. Vision trumps all other senses.
   4. Social learning fires mirror neurons.
   5. No pain, no gain (failure precedes success).
   6. Practice makes permanent.

Propel your virtual classroom from boring and predictable to compelling and vibrant. This interactive, engaging webinar will not only teach, but actually model these techniques.

After this one-hour webinar, you will be able to:
  • Apply six brain-based guidelines in your next web workshop
  • Increase novelty, contrast, meaning, and emotion in the virtual classroom
  • Use a variety of interaction tools to increase active engagement
  • Take away an infographic to reinforce brain-based learning approaches
