Introduction to accelerated learning

Free Course Free Course Featuring: Activity Activity

We know that the brain has a hugely important role to play in the students' learning that goes on in our classrooms. However, surprisingly, scientists still know relatively little about the workings of the brain, and most of what we do know has been discovered only in the last 15 years. Our challenge is to ensure that what we do know about the brain is translated into classroom practice and used to maximise student learning - this is the idea at the heart of Accelerated Learning. This free course, Introduction to accelerated learning, introduces some of the principles and explores techniques for you to try out with your pupils.

After studying this course, you should be able to:

  • understand better the principles of accelerated learning
  • develop some techniques to use in the classroom
  • change ways of teaching to use these techniques.
