In this course, we will explore "brain science" (cognitive neuroscience) as it relates to learning in a virtual environment. Using the foundation of six brain science principles and a four-step instructional design, we'll model at least 40 activities to engage learners.
The course consists of five virtual sessions that are two and a half hours long. There will be about an hour and a half of required "homework" between each session. All assignments must be completed to receive the TBR-VE Class Certificate of Completion awarded through Bowperson Publishing & Training, Inc.
Course completers will be able to:
Provide a psychologically safe environment for learning.
Apply six brain science principles to virtual instruction.
Use the 4Cs Map to design and deliver brain-based instruction.
Create virtual lessons that combine your topics with the concepts and strategies from the course.
Choose from dozens of virtual activities to engage learners.
Become a member of one or more TBR-VE communities of practice.
