Check out this video from i-Pathways on Brain Science and the Adult Learner. So much valuable information in less than 10 minutes! Thanks to Nance Heuer-Evans for sharing. Of course we see the effects in our adult ed students. Her final point, stress shuts down neural plasticity hit me as I thought about the stress for all of us in the last few months. I know I have seen this in my own brain. Recognizing the results of stress as we see it in ourselves will hopefully help us consider how to alter offerings to best meet the needs of our students. Nance shares key takeaways in her video. Check out Brain Science and the Adult Learner here.

Thanks to the group who met virtually this morning in an effort to learn news approaches to learner-centered instruction! I look forward to your posts as you reflect on the possible ways the 10-minute interview can enhance instruction. Let me know the tweaks you plan to make this valuable tool work with your specific students. Also, please let me know one idea to implement UDL into your classroom.
You all rock!
