The Brain is a Terrible Thing to Waste: Maximise with Whole Brain® Thinking
“I firmly believe that composite whole brain® learning groups represent the ultimate teaching configuration.”
- Ned Herrmann, Founder, Herrmann International; Creator of the HBDI®
Learning programs and curricula that are based on the specialised brains of students benefit everyone — including the teacher or trainer. Thinking and learning styles impact learner engagement, interest and learning outcomes, both over the short and long term.
So why do educators often take a cookie cutter approach to teaching? Chances are it’s because they’re unfamiliar with the methods of evaluating their students’ strengths and weaknesses using Herrmann’s innovative Whole Brain® Thinking approach.
Shaping the 'Thinking' of Tomorrow with the Whole Brain® Methodology
Whole Brain® Thinking is the science of cultivating the ability for individuals to act outside of their own preferred thinking styles. Since research has shown that people’s learning styles match their thinking styles, it adds up that teachers who integrate Whole Brain® Thinking into their teaching approaches can positively affect learning outcomes and create learning that lasts.
Specifically, we can help your educational organisation to:
- Improve educational outcomes
- Create a learning community that understands and respects the learning preferences of teachers and students
- Deliver learning based on personal uniqueness and specialised learning styles
- Evaluate and identify students for easier placement
- Engage all learners more effectively for “stickier” learning
Better Results Through Whole Brain® Thinking
Read how Yale College, Wrexham, North Wales, used the HBDI® to identify learning preferences and find appropriate strategies to address learning challenges. As the data from this report reveals, the HBDI® provided the key to improving testing scores and unlocking the learning potential of students across the college.
