NeuroELT: Language Learning and The Brain

NeuroELT: Language Learning and The Brain Neuroscience is changing the world. It is unraveling the mysteries of the very most basic elements of our profession – language, learning, and culture – and yet, because these findings are so new, they have not made much impact on our field yet. We wish, as language teachers ourselves, to change that. Let's look at how the brain processes emotion, memory, and meaning, and examine ways we can apply these findings to our classrooms.

This is a self-study course based on a one-month intensive iTDi Advanced Teaching Skills course. It includes four video recordings, readings, and discussion questions. Teachers who would like a certificate of completion verifying 20 Professional Development hours are required to submit written responses to the discussion questions.
