Workshops for Every Audience!

We have developed a number of exciting, informative workshops based on cutting-edge research in cognitive science, neuroscience, psychology, and education for a variety of audiences: teachers, administrators, parents, and students.

All the workshops we do are packed with practical strategies derived from the research and are highly engaging.  We don’t just talk about a brain-compatible teaching approach, we model it in everything we do.  Attendees don’t just “sit and get”; they participate!  As a result, they walk away with a true vision of what the strategies look like in practice and with the confidence to start implementing them right away.

Check out below the different categories of workshops that we provide.  You will see that we offer something for everyone.  And if you don’t see exactly what you’re looking for, we are willing to discuss creating a customized workshop just for you.

 

In this category, you’ll find a variety of workshops about how the human brain learns and effective teaching and classroom management strategies extrapolated from that information.  Topic lengths range from a couple of hours to multiple days.  There’s something here for everyone!

Does your faculty need intensive training in brain-compatible teaching techniques?  Willy’s Teaching That Sticks course covers everything your teachers need to know!  This course can be taught straight through in 5 or 6 days, or can be spread out across the course of a school year.

In these workshops, teachers learn a variety of reading and writing strategies and activities they can use to help their students comprehend and deeply process any curricular content.  Thinking activities, mastery/review activities, sharing activities, and reflection activities are all covered.

In this category, we offer workshops for parents of young children to teach them how to develop their children’s brains and to help them become strong readers.  We also offer workshops for parents of older students and older students themselves about the teen brain and effective study practices.
