    Weekly
  • Length of course: 1 term. Autumn (10 Weeks)
  • Number of places: 40
  • Start date: 05 October 2020
  • Description:

    How the brain develops, learns and ages. The trade-offs between strengths and weaknesses that underlie the Words brain, (the lawyer who can't ride a bike) or the Visual brain (the Artist who can’t spell) or the Analytical brain that can’t see the wood for the trees as well as the Global Brain, that gets the overall picture but forgets the details. When learning preferences turn to extremes we see the Dyslexic, Dyspraxic, Asperger’s or Attention Deficit Brain. We also look at the emotional requirements for learning, the Aging Brain, the male vs the female Brain, the Stressed Brain (including Post traumatic Stress and Addiction), memory, the bi and multi-lingual Brain as well as Interventions to boost the Brain’s learning ability. This course is a reorganisation and update of the course I did last year.
