About the event

Research on the brain shows that we cannot separate learning from emotion: all learning is social and emotional. Educators know that engagement is critical in their classrooms- and for remote learning, but how can we intentionally design for emotions and get to rigorous learning? In this session, we will discuss how the brain's emotion networks are critical to learning and cognition. We will share strategies, including Universal Design for Learning (UDL), that can make a real difference for student learning. In addition, we will brainstorm how those strategies can be integrated into daily routines and practices to support rigorous, meaningful learning opportunities for all students. Through interactive discussions, we will gain strategies to design learning environments that support and value the full range of emotions in our classrooms and deepen the learning opportunities for every individual.  


Participants will learn be able to:

  • Learn how emotions influence aspects of learning, including attention and memory
  • Gain strategies to design to support the range of student emotions that exist in a classroom, including stress, anxiety, and disengagement
  • Try a few tools and resources to encourage building a shared language for emotion that can be used for learning, including Universal Design for Learning and the Mood Meter
  • Adapt strategies to apply to their own classrooms – including remote learning
  • Learn more about their own learning and emotion

This session is applicable for K-12 educators, Higher education professors, administrators, instructional coaches, and other educators
