New insights into learning:  The neuroscience of learning, memory and forgetting
The lecture will focus on how the human brain learns and how that influences effective media usage. It also tackels the question, how IT, robotics and digital learning platforms will influence future learning concepts – but also how our brain will select the best learing strategies.
Are we fit for the future and do we have vision how the future of learing should look like?
