Nigel Paine: Improve Your Learning Ability

5th June 2015

Author of The Learning Challenge, published in August 2014, discusses new research about the brain and what stimulates effective learning.

Nigel Paine - New Brain Research from MASIE Learning Talks on Vimeo.

Nigel Paine discusses new research about the brain and emphasizes that, in order to change someone's behavior, their brain needs time to process information it learns. He also shares that the fitter we are and the more we are encouraged to continue learning, the more productive we will be.

Key takeaways:

  • Stressed brains don't learn - therefore you have to create stress-free environments for people
  • Brains like multi-media stimulation more than they like one medium
  • Brains like to work together - people work and learn better is there's some sharing and collegiality
  • Brains like to process - they need time to think and reflect and move a skill or competency into behaviour
