A weekly, interactive discussion series beginning January 21, 2021
Join a team of leading neuroscientists and education specialists for a weekly, interactive, online series that reveals how to understand and extract the untapped potential in everyone, ways to recognize and develop often hidden strengths, and how to give everyone the tools to gain that competitive edge in their lives and beyond.
Each session will be led by field experts and will explore the following topics:
- understanding how to engage and harness the attention of all learners;
- the use of neurotechnology in learning;
- the importance of neuroplasticity in relation to learner success; and
- the latest best practices for improving outcomes.
The Pushing The Boundaries of Achievement Series is presented by Elite Performance Solutions Inc (USA) in a global partnership with LearnFast (Australia), BrainMaps (China), BrainFit (Singapore), and Stronger Brains (USA). The weekly discussions aim to provide educators, performance coaches, executives, parents and researchers with some of the latest thought leadership and developments in neuroscience for learning and performance. Each section will consist of a brief lecture, followed by a panel discussion and a question and answer period.
