Register For Wednesday's Brain Based Learning Webinar
NATA
Jeffery Huston, MS, ATC, FNS, will be presenting "Our Classrooms are Backwards — How Brain Based Learning Should Shape Our Teaching," at 11 a.m. CT on April 22. If instructors want to maximize learning in their courses, they need to understand how the brain works during learning. Brain based learning and brain based research has been discussed, but rarely has it been discussed in terms of Athletic Training education. Athletic Training classrooms and education are perfect for maximizing learning through the principles that brain based learning has presented. This session will focus on examining how the brain learns best and how this knowledge can be translated into sound principles associated with teaching and learning.

The San Francisco Giants have a new meditation room built for players to mentally recharge and catch a catnap. (Matt Duffy is even allowed. His cat is not.)
