Body to Brain Learning®  Professional Development Series: 

Body to Brain Professional Learning  & Training Series

What is Body to Brain Learning

Basically, It’s a functional and developmental approach to learning.  Our body needs to function well and be developmentally mature (at the appropriate life stage) for us to learn well. Body to Brain Learning Professional Development Series teaches you about what to look for and how to use the information in your learning based practice. 

The Body to Brain Learning Professional Series is professional learning that helps participants apply theory in practice. It enables them to contextualize the information and use it in their work, in their schools.

Designed to increase participants understanding and use of principles and concepts of neuro-development, neuro-plasticity and neuroscience in their work supporting and enhancing learning, the Body to Brain Learning Professional Development Series draws together information from: neurobiology and developmental theory, education, neuro-cognitive science, professional learning and the Australian Learning context. Teacher’s professional learning opportunities include ways to implement the Australian Curriculum, incorporate and identify connections with AITSL standards and support continuing professional development across Australia.  Our programmes are practical and action-based, applying theory in practice.

On-line and mixed-mode professional learning opportunities for educators, allied health and health care professionals with a focus on why the body to brain learning connection is important for supporting learning. We provide a neuro-motor and sensory development perspective. 

Resources are made available to participants including checklists, posters and notes, to help them identify physical indicators of neuro-motor and sensory immaturity known to contribute to student learning challenges.  Participants are offered practical ways to implement this information in their practice.
