What is motivating your learner and learner groups? How do you keep them engaged and ready to learn?
October 19-20 | San Francisco, CA
Understanding the nonconscious drivers of behavior, motivation, and decisions can unlock powerful keys to tailoring learning initiatives that work and stick. This two-day workshop explores the neuroscience of learning and the importance of psychological safety in the learning context.
We first set the foundation of how the brain manages the learning process by exploring the basic neurobiological principles underlying successful learning. This includes topics such as the conflict between our “higher” and “lower” brain, our powerful nonconscious processing, managing our emotions, our surprisingly social brain, and how the brain responds to stress.
With that foundation in place, we then turn to the notion of psychological safety and discuss research suggesting its critical role in maximizing learning and creativity. We will then focus on practical ways to build psychological safety as a means to enhance communication, learning, and decision making. The core of this discussion will center around the S.A.F.E.T.Y. model, which describes a framework for understanding some of our brain’s specific motivating drivers as a learner, and the implications for how to best structure the learning experience in a “brain-friendly” manner. This includes an online S.A.F.E.T.Y. assessment to help you gain understanding into your personal motivating drivers, and the impact of your results as a learner.
During this program, you will:
- Learn about the neuroscience of motivation, attention, memory, and insight.
- Discover how stress affects learning and strategies to build resilience.
- Create a plan to optimize your training to maximize recall and enhance retention and memory.
