Unlock the Secrets of Brain Chemistry for Optimal Learning

Embark on a transformative webinar experience, "Establishing and Keeping Learner Engagement," designed for educators and trainers seeking elevated professional development. Facilitate powerful learning experiences that leave a lasting impact and support long-term recall. Your goal: hook, captivate, and keep learners engaged by infusing excitement, motivation, and curiosity into every session.

Unlock the Secrets of Brain Chemistry for Optimal Learning
Delve into the five key 'States' for learning, activating the brain's chemical and neuro-centric processes to maximize outcomes. Explore a smorgasbord of peptides, amino acids, frontal lobe engagement, noradrenalin, amygdala engagement, cortisol, dopamine, and more—a symphony of chemicals influencing the learning experience. Learn the art of "Hook 'em early and get 'em curious," creating a naturally brain-chemically enhanced atmosphere of excitement, curiosity, fun, and wonder.

Crafting Early Engagement: A Journey into Curiosity
Initiate your sessions by sparking curiosity, stimulating the desire to solve problems, and activating the brain's reward system. Learn to engage the Reticular Activation System (RAS), the Parietal, and Frontal lobes—the thinking centres of the brain. Experience practical framing-up activities to anchor learners mentally, attitudinally, and physically in the room, addressing the challenges of contemporary teaching.
