Pedagogical Practices and Study Skills for Enhanced Learning and Metacognition
Chandana Watagodakumbura, PhD
An educator with a background in engineering and education, Dr. Chandana Watagodakumbura has dedicated his life to understanding what makes individuals learn better. Now, he shares his findings in the inspiring Programming the Brain: Educational Neuroscience Perspective, a deeply insightful and intellectually stimulating look at how humans learn and the ways we can create a more enhanced approach to education.
Programming the Brain: Educational Neuroscience Perspective focuses on educational neuroscience and human development and is a must-read for anyone hoping to gain a deeper understanding of what helps individuals learn. Written with an eye toward engagement and conscious pursuit of lifelong learning, Programming the Brain: Educational Neuroscience Perspective will inspire you to engage with the world around you in a more meaningful way.
