How to create “Sticky” Learning

Recorded: October 26, 2022

It’s a no-brainer to say that the world is changing at a rapid pace and that our students seem to have shorter attention spans in our English classes.

The traditional paradigm of the lecturer as “the sage on the stage” – i.e. the expert who transfers his/her information – is undergoing noticeable change as well.  Research-based evidence from the fields of cognitive psychology, neuroscience and education have provided us with some insights about how people learn and how learning can be made more “sticky” and effective.

In this webinar, we will look at brain-based learning principles that can help us teach more effectively and hopefully create more student engagement and retention.

“I’m a big believer in the power of the internet which is changing the way that we teach and learn. As teachers, we have more effective options available to us that enable us to engage, challenge and motivate each and every one of our language learners. It all boils down to excellent pedagogy with some help from the available technology.”
