CIPD Annual Conference, Manchester, November 5th and 6th

 

The CIPD Annual Conference is being held in Manchester on November 5th and 6th and we will be presenting at it on both days.  On the 5the we will co-deliver a session at the exhibition that will highlight the CIPDs new report (due for publication in late October) on the application of neuroscience in the real world.  The research is intended to cut through the ‘neuro-hype’ and showcase where neuroscience can make a genuine difference, and add real value for individuals and organisations.  The report should shed some welcome, objective light on this area.  On the 6th we are delivering a workshop at the conference called ‘Designing Learning Initiatives Using Neuroscience’ (W5, 09.30 -12.00 if you want to attend).  In the workshop we will cover:

  • an introduction to neuroscience in relation to learning and development
  • how neuroscience can inform the architecture, content and delivery of L&D
  • a practical approach to assessing existing programmes and materials for ‘brain friendliness’.

By attending the session you will take away:

  •  examples of using neuroscience principles to plan, manage and embed learning
  • ideas on how to incorporate neuroscience into the design and delivery of L&D offerings
  • a ‘gap analysis’ of how ‘brain friendly’ your current L&D offerings are.
