Time Management & the Learning Brain

May 24, 12:45 pm - 1:35 pm

Sure, time management is about being organized, but it’s also about much more. Time -- and how we use time -- impacts the way we learn and the way our brains process new information. By reducing stress, by deterring procrastination, by understanding how and when we process information best -- we can get better at both learning and life.

It’s just not natural… learning in the classroom is not something our brains are geared to do out of the box. And a whole lot of our received knowledge about how learning is supposed to work is really kinda wrong. But recent developments in the learning sciences are changing all that and revolutionizing our understanding of how our brains function best. It turns out there are ways to get more out of our efforts and to learn how to learn more effectively and efficiently. We’ll apply those latest insights in and out of the classroom in order to raise our study game.

If we want to finish the race strong, we’ll need to get our minds right from the start. We’ll need to face challenges, overcome obstacles, rebound from setbacks. So how can mindset propel us forward with our studies? How can a fixed mindset hold us back and a growth mindset help us succeed? We’ll explore ways to better train our minds for the race ahead and see how the mindset advantage can help us sprint through the tape.

We’ll examine the science and the aesthetics of perception that converge to create effective presentations, and how you can use them to win over your audience!
