You can't help but run into the discussions that are going on about how brain research is affecting our understanding of how the brain works. What you don't seem to find are discussions about how the findings impact online course design. In this session, we will do exactly that: look at how the "learning brain" impacts course design.
Become aware of significant neuroscience findings that impact design of learning strategies.
Apply findings to course design.
Suggest how design standards relate to these findings.
