View Details Register

Visual Thinking has to do with the way a learner is able to create new concepts or thoughts through the visual neurobiological learning system. These thoughts or images do not use sound in processing. Therefore, educational practices shift their approaches to meet the learners' needs. The purpose of this workshop is to introduce the Neuro-Semantic Language Learning Theory (NsLLT) along with aligned methods for classroom teachers and support specialists. Beginning Level Workshop.

Thinking: Beyond the here and now

Most educational practices are based on a cognitive psychology lens where skills are taught. But doing skills will not provide an increase in thinking. Thinking and doing are not the same. To improve a learner's thinking beyond the "here and now," this workshop will provide methods of increasing deeper conceptualization through language-based literacy. Intermediate Level Workshop.

Thinking is not believing: Philosophy vs. Theory

View Details Register

Most educators have core values regarding their beliefs about learners. But educators' beliefs may not match their practices. The purpose of this workshop is to provide an understanding of a paradigm shift from teaching adult thinking grounded in input-output pedagogical practices, to practices that are relevant, practical, and meaningful for the way that students actually learn. Advanced Level Workshop.
