Don’t Take the Brain out of Learning

April 21, 2016 – Yellow Springs, OH – Antioch University Midwest will be hosting renowned, dynamic speaker, and experienced teacher, Ann Anzalone, as part of The Educational Leaders Seminar Series at Antioch this June. For the past 30 years Ms. Anzalone has conducted workshops for K-12 teachers, administrators and parents, as well as for businesses and corporations.

“I am thrilled to be returning to Antioch University Midwest as a facilitator at ELSSA.  The freedom to explore cutting edge learning in an academic environment is exciting.  The excitement, networking, and time to explore topics that truly make a change in learning are well worth the time spent in class,” says Anzalone.

During her two day session, Learning with the Brain in Mind, Ms. Anzalone will discuss how the key to learning is to empower students to take charge of their own learning; focusing on developing techniques, strategies, and tools to help education leaders optimize learning and communication skills. “Participants will discover the foundations of successful learning experiences and the best exercise to reduce test anxiety, understand the benefits of teaching using five high return, experience how to teach attention skills, and learn how to build glucose stores in the brain to ensure brain health,” says Anzalone.
