Webinar: "Mind Over Space: Neurodiversity & Learning Spaces of the Future”
Thursday, June 24th @12pm (PST)
Our learning, working, creating, and socializing environments have a much greater unconscious impact on us than we realize. Sensory overload occurs daily and can lead to a high level of disengagement, breakdown in relationships, and low productivity. On the opposite side, environments with low sensory stimulation can leave us feeling the same way too. This interactive CEU will explore how the brain processes sensory information and the key concepts of neurodiversity. It will also identify how both sensory processing and neurodiversity effect the way people listen, learn, play, and collaborate in a variety of spaces. With the increase of remote working and learning, social distancing, time in front of screens, and digital fatigue the discussion of sensory engagement and understanding of our sensory intelligence is more relevant than ever.
