Most of the changes we want to engineer in our students are primarily intellectual, so we often tend to focus exclusively on our students’ rational brain. What we often forget is that the affective functions of the brain are actually programmed to work against change, and therefore actively interfere with learning. of the intellectual kind. If we want to change the way our students think (and act!), we have to find ways to connect those two parts of the brain. In this workshop, we will examine strategies for making the two parts of the brain work with, not against, each other by working with both the affective and the cognitive domains.
