The science behind how we learn and perform has taken center stage recently and with good reason. Understanding how we function and what motivates us as learners and as human beings is fascinating, but ultimately, training and development professionals just want the hard facts that support the best practices. To help provide some of these answers, ASTD presents the "Science of Learning" track—a new fixture at the ASTD 2014 Conference & EXPO. This webinar will give you an unrivaled sneak peek into some of the sessions, and expert analysis driving the next phase of learning and organizational development.

Join thought leaders Christine Cox*, Catherine Lombardozzi, Shawn Andrews, and Ruth Clark, covering topics including

  • the neuroscience of coaching
  • research-based social learning
  • cutting-edge data on emotional intelligence and leadership
  • evidence-based approches on using games, learning styles, and more.

Join us for this fast-paced, information-packed webinar with some of the best and brightest in the industry, and get in on the conversation leading up to a very exciting ASTD 2014 in Washington, D.C.

*UPDATE: David Rock will be represented by Dr. Christine Cox, NYU professor and cognitive neuroscience expert. Thanks to Dr. Cox for stepping in!
