Neuroscience for Learning and Development is about the psychology and neuroscience that underpins effective and successful training and learning. It introduces the latest research and concepts and suggests practical tools, techniques and ideas to improve how trainers train and how people learn. Readers will find new and more effective ways of working and will discover a sound basis for good practice. They will also discover the research that backs up what they are already doing well and evidence to support future projects and plans in order to make a convincing case to budget holders. Neuroscience for Learning and Development covers the design and delivery of face-to-face, online and virtual learning as well as how to create environments which make learning easier. It provides evidence to stop training and learning being seen as 'soft and fluffy' and will help trainers and L&D teams persuade the rest of their organization of their value. This book explains the science behind creative training delivery so that learners will be motivated, enjoy training, pay attention, remember what they learn and be able to apply it back at work. It explains the neuroscience of attention, memory and habits and how to make sure people learn what they need to learn. Readers will be able to distinguish the neuromyths from the neuroscience and will find out which elements of brain science offer evidence for current practice and as well as discovering new ideas to continue to develop their skills and practice.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is no trendy skim through the latest L&D fad; rather it s a well-researched and well-articulated walk through the science and the physiology of the brain, demonstrating how a knowledge and understanding of how it works can help both teachers/trainers/facilitators/coaches AND learners absorb information more easily and translate that knowledge into effective action and new behaviours. It s a book I will be keeping close and referring back to regularly."
--Niall Gavin "former Head of Technology, Assisted Learning, FirstGroup plc ""
"I particularly enjoyed the chapters on meaningful memories and making learning 'sticky' and would recommend this book to any L&D professional who wants to deliver memorable training sessions, understand how to engage learners and make sure that the learning sticks."
--Penny Brooks "Academy Learning and Development Manager, The AA "
"Stella has written a really useful guide to brain-friendly learning, which contains plenty of examples and ideas that will improve your presentations and learning 'events'. Read this book and share it with others to help make learning stick!"
--Anne-Marie Hearne "Head of Learning and Development, Domino's Pizza Group Limited "
"If you want to transform learning in your organization, this is a must-read."
--Amy Brann "author of Make Your Brain Work, Neuroscience for Coaches and Engaged "
"In our information-rich world full of distractions, Stella Collins' elegant way of describing our cognitive processes will give you an advantage in the game of learning. And who knew how sea slugs learn? Synapses created, thank you Stella for some real sticky, brain-friendly learning about the brain."
--Perry Timms "Founder of PTHR and Director of People & Learning, Media Zoo "
"If you work in L&D make this the next book you read. You will learn a lot, whether you want to or not!"
--Astrid Keogh "OD Manager, the London Borough of Hackney "
"This is no trendy skim through the latest L&D 'fad'; rather it's a well-researched and well-articulated walk through the science and the physiology of the brain, demonstrating how a knowledge and understanding of how it works can help both teachers/trainers/facilitators/coaches AND learners absorb information more easily and translate that knowledge into effective action and new behaviours. It's a book I will be keeping close and referring back to regularly."
--Niall Gavin "former Head of Technology, Assisted Learning, FirstGroup plc "
"Too much time and focus is placed on the teaching rather than on the learner. Understanding the neuroscience and psychology of the learner is the key to successful learning and training; as I often write, "It is not what you teach but what they learn that counts." This book falls within this approach, whereby one must attempt to take neuroscientific and psychological insights and apply them in order to innovate and break new ground in the area of training and learning."
--Dr Itiel Dror, Consultant and Researcher in Cognitive Neuroscience "University College London, Cognitive Consultants International "
"Dispelling some of the myths and hype around the topic, Stella Collins proves you don't have to be a neuroscientist to apply key brain principles to practical learning solutions. Starting with an understandable tour of the brain, this accessible book explores how factors such as attention, curiosity, personal meaning, the senses, spacing, pacing, relaxation and reflection are vital aspects of creating effective, engaging learning. If you haven't got time to become a neuroscientist but want to apply its principles to learning, this book is a great place to start!"
--Andy Lancaster "Head of Learning and Development, CIPD "
"This is an easy-to-read book on what is usually considered a complex subject - neuroscience for learning and development. It provides relevant information for teachers, lecturers and trainers alike, with tips and ideas for how to use brainfriendly techniques and approaches to structure learning activities. The book will also make for interesting reading for those who are interested in neuroscience and want to learn more about the subject without having to read dry and dusty academic articles."
--Dorothea Carvalho, Professional Development Project Director "The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport "
