The Art (and the science) of guided practice

By William Seidman Practice makes perfect. You’ve heard this a million times. From a neurological point of view, that is 100% correct with the caveat that if you are practicing the wrong things with the right mindset, you have a great chance at being perfectly wrong! We use coaches to guide learners to reflect on their learning and share what they have gained from the program. Many participants are so used to passive learning that they don’t know how to reflect and share. Being asked to consciously identify what they’ve learned, then discuss it and record it, is a challenge. Writing down what they have learned drives still deeper reflection, reinforces positive images, facilitates passage through short-term memory and provides even more opportunities for learning. We use the the neuroscience of learning to boost learning of the desired attitudes and behaviors.  ]]>
