How do humans learn? How do the ways that humans learn affect you and those you teach and lead? This course will integrate theories from neuroscience, psychology, cognitive science, and other disciplines into a framework for the principles of learning, then show you how to apply the framework for the principles of learning. By applying the framework for the principles of learning in your areas of influence, you can maximize learning for everyone you teach and lead.

Dr. Nathan Belcher

Instructor
As a professional educator, I constantly strive to create the best possible classes for my students. I’ve relentlessly researched and implemented ideas from both science education and learning sciences research — leading to classes that are designed with the foundational principles from science education and learning science research. During the process of researching ideas, I realized that I loved learning about learning! As I implemented ideas about learning in my classes, students had more fun and learned more quickly and deeply — so I started using the ideas about learning in my personal life and other areas of my professional life. I continued to see the fun and satisfaction when learning quickly and deeply; now I want to help others experience the same fun and satisfaction in their personal and professional life.
