ESE370: Learning & the Brain

ESE370: Week 3 – Discussion 2

Week 3 – Discussion 2

Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Refer to the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric under the Settings icon above for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.

Optimal Environment

To create an optimal environment for learning, we must consider more than just the furniture. Our brain is influenced by aromas in the room, music playing, and even the number of plants that populate the space. Describe a time from your own learning experience that was influenced in either a negative or positive way by the physical learning environment. Using examples from the course materials, describe your optimal environment for learning. Be sure to explain why you would include or exclude particular elements. In addition to the Willis and Mitchell (2014) textbook, Chapter 5 of the Given text and Chapter 6 of the Jensen text may also be useful.

Guided Response: Review several of your classmates’ posts and compare their learning experiences to your own. Suggest how you may have responded in their situation. Provide additional recommendations for creating the optimal environment for learning. Let them know how you would be influenced by what they have included in their optimal environment.This topic is closed for comments.
