In adult learning settings, we’ve seen that “sit and get” rarely works to help adults gain the knowledge they need to succeed. To understand what the latest in brain science tells us about why a traditional approach often fails adults, we talk to LaDonna Pavetti, Vice President for Family Income Support Policy at Center on Budget & Policy Priorities (CBPP). LaDonna shares the critical role that Executive Function skills play in how we learn. She explains how, as designers of learning experiences, we often underestimate what it takes for our learners to absorb and be able to use new information. Listen to this episode for insights on how to apply the latest in brain science to your approach to learning and teaching.
