Trainers Institute: At Home Edition- Remembered, Not Forgotten: Using Brain-Based Teaching Strategies that Ensure Participants Remember What You Teach
Date: Thursday, May 13, 9:30 am - 11:30 am
Presenters: Nicki Patton Rowe ECE Trainer/Consultant Brain-Based Learning Solutions Nicki Patton Rowe is passionate about providing and promoting effective training/learning that results in application in the ECE classroom. For 30+ years, her work has focused on training ECE staff (child care, Head Start, public preschool), developing instructional materials for organizations, and facilitating train-the-trainer programs.
Designed for ECE trainers and/or instructors teaching CDA or ECE college courses, this interactive session will explore brain-based instructional strategies that help participants remember what you taught them. New insights into how memories are encoded and retrieved dictate the use of new and modified instructional strategies that lead to better retention and more complex mastery. During this session, participants will: 1) learn about and experience instructional strategies that support 3 key memory processes (attention, elaboration, retrieval); 2) discuss how commonly used training strategies can lead to an illusion of mastery; 3) describe the importance of effortful retrieval, spaced learning and feedback as well as ways to incorporate these strategies into trainings/courses; and 4) brainstorm ways they can incorporate new strategies into their own trainings/courses. This session includes a 2-hour webinar, pre-assignment, and post assignment. In order to receive credit, you must attend the webinar and complete all assignments.
