Have you ever noticed how you can walk or drive home by habit, arriving at your doorstep without even thinking about how you got there? Your almost magical arrival home involves the procedural system—one of the most important, yet little known, of the brain’s ways of learning. As it turns out, practice is one of the best ways to support procedural learning—and learning in general. In this webinar, Barbara Oakley describes the brain’s two major learning systems and how you, as an instructor, can and should be teaching to both systems. The result? Your students will have a conceptually deeper, richer, and more flexible grasp of the material.
