Brain Research as applied to classroom learning is an exciting interdisciplinary approach to incorporating psychological and neurological research into educational practices. By learning the multiple pathways involved in learning (beyond auditory, kinesthetic, visual, etc.), participants will learn the biological basis for learning, the differences between thinking and learning, how the brain pays attention, the importance of reducing stress in the classroom and the role emotions play in learning.
The focus of the workshop is practical application of the findings of brain research to classroom instructional methods. This symposium is the third in a series of Academic Symposia co-planned and co-sponsored by both MDC and United Faculty of Miami Dade College.


As a result of successful completion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the biological basis of learning 
  • Describe the differences between thinking and learning
  • Identify the multiple pathways involved in learning
  • Describe strategies for activating multiple learning pathways
  • Identify brain compatible teaching strategies
  • Describe the importance of reducing stress in class
  • Describe how the brain pays attention
  • Describe the role of emotion in learning
