Every teacher, of every subject, in every year will learn cutting edge, brain-based pedagogical practices during this course.

About the course

It turns out that the effects of stress on both staff and student brains are the same; and many of the solutions apply to both staff and students equally – often simultaneously!

As teachers use these solutions to improve staff and student well-being, they also drastically improve the ability of our students' brains to learn successfully.

The research is clear; a young person's education is enhanced by teachers having a clear understanding of brain-science - and using this understanding in their daily teaching practice. This is the future of Education. Tammy-Anne and Todd base this course on brain-science, psychology and eight years of classroom teaching experience in primary and secondary classrooms.

This course will help you to take the stress out of school and turn worry into well-being.  
When our brains are in a state of stress, we literally cannot teach - or learn - as effectively as possible.  This workshop links to the Australian Student Wellbeing Framework and ACARA's Personal and Social Capabilities.
