    Five Things You Can Do Right Now
    to Implement Brain-Based Learning

    If you could see inside the brains of your audience, could you design and deliver more effective learning experiences? Margie Meacham, aka “The Brain Lady,” has been helping organizations apply the neurosciences to enhance learning and performance for over a decade. In our first-ever webinar, Margie will give you an overview of the latest discoveries coming from this exciting and fast-moving field, along with five practical things you can do right now to implement brain-based learning in your organization.

    In this webinar, you will learn how to:

    ●      Separate fact from hype when you read about neuroscience in the popular press

    ●      Write learning objectives that stimulate existing neural pathways and make the brain ready to learn new skills

    ●      Tap into learners’ unconscious wiring to grab and maintain attention

    ●      Implement simple brain-based learning techniques into your existing programs to enhance learning and performance

    Margie Meacham is the author of Brain Matters: How to help anyone learn anything using neuroscience, The Brain Matters Coloring Book and Brain Matters Too: Implementing Brain-Based Learning in a Changing World. A recognized thought leader on the subject of brain-based learning, Margie appears at major conferences such as ATD International Conference and Expo, Learning Solutions, The Learning and Development Conference (TLDC) and others. She hosts one of the top 10 podcasts for learning professionals in the world and teaches an online course on Brain-Based Learning for ATD.

    A group of people just like you are getting together for happy hour and professional networking.

    They are learning, training, and development professionals and they want YOU to join them. They want to get to know you and for you to get to know them.

    If you're a consultant or have business services to offer, they want to hear about them.

    If you're a student, they want to tell you about what you can expect as you enter the workforce.

    If you are in transition, they want to help you meet other people that can help you find your next job.

    And if you are in an established position, they want to hear about what you are working on and maybe help you problem-solve (they are super creative).

    When it's over, they will want to stay in touch with you and hope you want to stay in touch too.

    New friends and new learning are waiting for you.
