Brain Based LearningThe last 10 years we have learned a lot about the functioning of our brains. This advance of ‘brain knowledge’ is due to new scanning techniques with which scientists can map out our brain. This knowledge is a real goldmine for professionals who are active in the field of learning and change. After all, if you know how our brain learns, you can take this into account when setting up, rolling out and evaluating learning and change processes. The latter is called ‘brain-based learning’ or ‘brain-centred learning’.
Neurocognitive science provides us with new insights into learning and change, as well as support for existing insights. Much of what we already do from experience and intuition is already ‘brainproof’. In order to make the recent findings about brain and learning practical and transferable, we have elaborated 7 different learning principles with a neurological foundation. We call these our 7 brain principles. Each of these principles are based on the same reference, namely:
Learning is the formation of strong and extensive neural networks in our brain.
