Embodied Learning Strategies to Create Human Connection and Engagement

Recent headlines suggest we are currently experiencing a "stunning" level of student disconnection and disengagement. What can we do to motivate students and ourselves to re-engage in learning? Learning demands physical energy that the body supplies for optimal brain function. We are wired for social connection and to think while moving. In this interactive session, participants will experience embodied learning strategies first-hand; from the research in my book, Minding Bodies: How physical space, sensation, and movement affect learning, I will share what science is discovering about the effect of the built environment and movement on cognitive performance.
