Almost daily research from neuroscience, biology and cognitive science sheds new light on how the human brain takes in, processes and stores new learning. This research affirms the importance of using an integrative approach to learning. This presentation will help faculty to better understand which learning process the brain uses best reinforce an integrative approach to learning.

Specific learning processes to be discussed include how the brain uses patterns to recognize how to process new learning, how distributed practice of new learning leads to long term recall, how a multi sensory teaching and learning enhances understanding and recall.

The Eli Broad College of Business and the Broad Integrative Fellows Program are pleased to present
