Dr. Fidelma Healy Eames, PhD, MSc, BEd

Intended Audience: Teachers (upper primary and second-level), Guidance Counsellors, Study Skills Co-ordinators, parents, students
Duration: 1hr 15mins (teachers) or 2 x 45 minute in-class sessions with students.
By the end of the course participants will:
✅ understand the brain and the role the different parts play in well-being and learning – the survival brain, the stressed brain, the thinking brain, the contented brain.
✅ engage in a range of activities to enable the learner to establish their learner profile – their preferred learning style(s) and learning conditions.
✅ discuss the implications for learning and review a range of strategies – active and reflective – to match the learner’s innate strengths, empowering them to become more independent in their learning.
