Using Neuroscience to Enhance your Instructional Design

Do you feel like no matter what method, model or theory you use, it just doesn't do your design justice?  Do you feel like you're creating training that crams a lot of information into a two hour class?  Are your participants losing focus half way through?  
If so, then you might consider creating training based on what neuroscientists know about the brain.  Margie Meacham, best known as "The Brain Lady" will lead this one day workshop on how to use neuroscience to enhance your instructional design. 

You will learn:

  • The recent trends in neuroscience
  • How the brain receives information
  • How you can apply this information to Instructional Design
  • How to apply what you just learned with guidance from Margie
(All participants must have some level of instructional design experience.) 

Everyone will receive a copy of "Brain Matters:  How to help anyone learn anything using Neuroscience"  

Breakfast and lunch will be included.  

Author Margie Meacham first became interested in helping people learn when she was a little girl struggling with first grade. While she didn’t discover it until much later, Margie is dyslexic and was finding it hard to keep up with her classmates. Eventually she figured out how her mind worked and graduated high school as her class valedictorian and summa cum laude from her Bachelor and Master’s level programs. Today, she teaches instructional designers, trainers, speakers and leaders how to design and deliver training that is compelling, memorable and immediately useful by applying the latest discoveries from the field of neuroscience. The author of "Brain Matters: How to help anyone learn anything using neuroscience" believes that if you understand how the brain works you can become a better teacher, trainer, leader, spouse or parent and have more fun doing it. 

Margie is the Chief Freedom Officer of Learningtogo and writes a popular blog on the neuroscience of learning. She is a frequent speaker at industry conferences and runs her own online conference called Brain Matters. You can learn more about Margie on her website at, or connect with her on LinkedIn and Twitter.
