How do we create experiences that will lead to better learning for all students so that they will "know" and "remember"? As teachers, we constantly hear "I don't know" and "I don't remember" from our students. However, over the past fifteen years, the science of learning has provided many insights into not only how we think, but also how we remember and retain information. This body of research on how we learn provides well established principles and practices that enhance the learning outcomes for each of our students and provides a starting point for inspired and passionate teachers to build the capacity in learners to see themselves as their own teachers. This online seminar will show you how! Moving beyond performance on a test, this workshop links these essential principles to the everyday instructional decisions you make in your classroom.

By practicing what we preach, you will take part in an edge-of-your-seat virtual learning experience that translates these principles to practices across multiple content areas and grade-levels. You will leave with strategies that will make learning stronger for all of your students.


Participants will learn be able to:

  • Explain key principles of how my students learn and remember
  • Recognize strategies that apply these principles to learning in my classroom
  • Create learning opportunities for my students that integrate these principles into my classroom


This seminar is applicable for K-12 teachers, administrators, instructional coaches, counselors, and other educators that support classroom instruction.
