Harness the Power of Brain Science

The learning industry is becoming more and more interested in brain science, and with good reason. Current research and advancements in brain science are helping us better understand the science behind learning, and learning professionals are using this knowledge to create more effective learning and performance programs.

At the Science of Behavior Change Summit, we’re bringing leaders from both within and outside the L&D space to share the current research behind brain science and discuss how people are applying that information in the world of learning.

Open Your Mind to Scientific Possibilities

Over the course of two days, individuals in the science of behavior change field will explore the latest scientific research related to motivation and behavior. Sessions will examine how that research is helping us understand the brain today and impacting the way we’ll look at training and learning in the future.
