13 January 2015 Helen Ashton, Head of L&D at First Class learning and development, facilitated a session for the Coventry and Warwickshire Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development “Using neuroscience to make training more effective”. In the picture people are standing up and down at different rates to represent the speed of brain waves!
Helen talked about the importance of reviewing and reflecting on learning to retain. After a whole day or more of training she follows up with delegates the next day, 1 week, 1 month, 3 months and 6 months afterwards. The process of remembering is fascinating. Here is the link https://app.box.com/s/vlqpj3ax2koh4w2cuoglgl2wmsawsfzp to some of the photographs that were taken at the event and shared with partiscipants to help memories come flooding back. If you don’t already, try this simple technique with your delegates to help then to remember and retain learning.
There is still time to book your place at the Brain Friendly Learning Group session on 30 January. Stella Collins, founder of the Brain Friendly Learning Group, and Helen Ashton will be leading the session “Neuroscience – research to reality” Find details at http://www.brainfriendlylearninggroup.com/welcome-to-the-bflg-midlands/
