Exciting News - PMILOC is turning 20 YEARS old in 2019 and we are kicking off the celebrations at the January 07, 2018 Dinner Event.



The way we learn is going through a vast evolution of change, and we’re just at the beginning of it. Technology has allowed us to dive deeper into the inner workings of the brain and how it learns. In this session, using the fundamentals of neuroscience will take a journey into the learning brain.  Discover the myths that have been busted about how we learn and leave with some new ideas on how you can more effectively design learning experiences for the brain.  

  1. Journey through the parts of the brain that are essential for learning and make correlations between those and learning methodologies.
  2. Participate in busting some of the myths that have driven learning for decades and discover the facts that can guide us to develop stronger practices
  3. Leave with some strategic design tips that can be implemented into their learning projects
  4. Have FUN in this experiential hand on session, where they will discover the feeling of knowledge retained.
