In order to design and deliver effective L&D initiatives, it is essential to understand how our brains work to learn, process and retain information.

Neuroscience for Learning and Development introduces the latest research and concepts in the field, equipping learning and development and training professionals with an understanding of some of the inner workings of the mind.

Covering areas such as how to create effective learning environments, promoting motivation and how to make learning 'stickier' through using stories and narratives, this book offers practical tools and ideas that ca

n be applied in a variety of contexts, from operational training and information transfer, to coaching and executive leadership programmes. Readers will not only find new techniques to implement right away, but also discover the research that backs up what they are already doing well, enabling them to make convincing cases to budget holders.

This updated second edition of Neuroscience for Learning and Development contains new chapters on digital and online learning and the importance of rest and sleep to learning, as well as updated wider content and new case studies from organizations including Seasalt Clothing, Tulip Foods and The Inform Team.
