The science of learning and development: lessons from neuroscience - Lane4
Did you know that the average adult human brain contains approximately 86 billion neurons? Scientists are learning more and more about the brain every day and this growing knowledge is helping us understand the ways we learn, develop and change behaviour. Whilst a lot of L&D research has previously focused on observed behavioural changes, considering the underlying neuroscience is becoming increasingly important.
In this white paper, we examine some key principles from current thinking in neuroscience, and how you can use these principles to enhance your L&D strategy.
Lessons from neuroscience covers:
• 3 common neuroscience myths
• Neuroscience strategies, and how you can apply them to L&D
The science of learning and development: the four foundation stones - Lane4
70% of delegates revert to previous behaviours a year after their L&D courses.
Whilst it’s an uncomfortably large number, not all courses suffer from this issue. What differentiates those that succeed and those that don’t is the quality of course.
This white paper explores four foundations that should underpin the development of any effective L&D strategy in the 21st century.
The four foundation stones covers:
• The philosophy that should underpin your L&D strategy
• Insight into the difference between adult and child learning
• Advice on creating a ‘safe’ culture for learning
