Webinar: Memory and the Brain
January 11, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
This webinar covers the brain, discussion of memory, and study/learning strategies. Students value by understanding how their brain works as this helps them appreciate memory strategies. In studying the brain, we will focus on various components which aid the learning process and how students can enhance their efficiency. The memory component will review the process of memory and provide strategies to enhance each of the various steps within the process. The sections on strategies will cover a range of strategies for different subjects. The strategies are designed to be especially valuable for students who struggle with learning but are also useful for ALL students.
