God's Amazing Design: Teaching and Learning with the Brain in Mind

Learning by definition is a process that changes the brain. Understanding how the brain develops and functions and designing curriculum that cooperates with God's amazing design enhances teaching and learning. We will also explore healthy growth and development to promote active learning. This understanding can guide teachers to become more effective at designing curriculum that supports all learners.

*The first 10 schools to register their staff will be entered into a drawing for a free registration next year.*


Registration for the event includes lunch and earning of up to 6 clock hours / 1 CEUs.
