Teaching with the Brain in Mind
Taylor, Kathleen; Lamoreaux, Annalee
New Directions for Adult and Continuing Education, n119 p49-59 Fall 2008
Adult educators are committed to learning that encourages adults to see themselves and the world around them in more complex ways. They have therefore focused their practice on teaching with development in mind (Taylor, 2000; Lamoreaux, 2005). Recently, however, a colleague (Johnson, 2003) pointed the authors to a body of research that examines how the brain changes as it learns. They found it offered them a new perspective on teaching and learning. This chapter describes aspects of brain function that suggest ways to teach with the brain in mind.
