How to Maximize On-Line Learning According to Neuroscience

The COVID-19 global pandemic is moving learning out of the classroom and online. But, according to the neuroscience of adult learning, there are three simple ways to maximize an on-line learning experience. First, find a space for on-line learning that provides very few distractions so you can have focused attention for the lecture portions of the online learning. Second, get in a slightly positive mood before the session by doing something you love or watching a favorite funny video. Third and finally, generate connections between new content and what you already know and between new content and how to apply it to your current situation. Hopefully, the instructor provides reflection time or exercises to help with this third step of generating connections. Rest assured that the instructor for AIChE’s (American Institute of Chemical Engineers) new live online PEAK (Providing Effective And Knowledgeable) Leadership workshop does provide exercises for learners to generate helpful connections.
