Neuroscience is providing powerful new insights into how we can engage students more effectively in real-time learning in the classroom. Simple techniques and small adjustments in our teaching methods can make a big difference in how much our students learn and retain. In this seminar, Dr. Michael Babcock of Central Virginia Community College will focus on how teachers in all disciplines can activate the neural pathways of their students through narrative, sensory stimulation, and collaborative inquiry. Specific examples will be drawn from the field of composition instruction, but the principles and applications are relevant for teaching in any discipline. Dr. Babcock’s interest in neural processing goes back to his doctoral work in linguistics at the University of Minnesota. He has spoken at linguistics conferences at Harvard University and recently presented at New Horizons (2018) on the topic of neuroeducation. This workshop will provide critical background on this emerging field as well as “off the shelf” techniques that teachers can implement immediately in their classrooms to improve student outcomes.
