    ‘Exekutive Funktionen’ with Katrin Hille (lecture in German)

    Learning takes place in our mind – or not at all. Sometimes it takes place at and out of school. We know a lot about learning: it has to be significant for the learner and it does not just happen through rote learning. It also works better with positive emotions and motivation. In this lecture we will discuss the complexity of learning and how to fuel the motivation of the student. Because knowing these correlations can carry benefits for every school and classroom.
