This two-hour workshop covers an introduction to human cognitive development and how it forms the basis of what we learn, drawn from theory and evidence-based research. At the end of the workshop, participants will understand and be able to articulate the definition of human cognition and will be able to apply this understanding to their own learning processes, as well as those of their students and/or children.
