Teaching new facts should not be the focus of adult education, she says. Instead, continued brain development and a richer form of learning may require that you “bump up against people and ideas” that are different. In a history class, that might mean reading multiple viewpoints, and then prying open brain networks by reflecting on how what was learned has changed your view of the world.

Nicole Lazzaro, XEODesign: "Often ignored by usability, neuroscience now proves that emotion deeply connects decision making and performance. Emotions also coordinate the actions between people. Therefore the next design challenge for desktop and cloud applications is not making a UI "easy," but rather making it more emotional and social. The trick is that emotions and social experiences cannot be designed directly. This presentation covers how the choices in games craft player emotions to increase engagement."

Do you have what it takes to be a geek? "This test predicts ability to program with very high accuracy before the subjects have ever seen a program or a programming language. ... All teachers of programming find that their results display a 'double hump'. It is as if there are two populations: those who can, and those who cannot, each with its own independent bell curve. Almost all research into programming teaching and learning have concentrated on teaching: change the language, change the application area, use an IDE and work on motivation. None of it works, and the double hump persists. We have a test which picks out the population that can program, before the course begins. We can pick apart the double hump. You probably don't believe this, but you will after you hear the talk. We don't know exactly how/why it works, but we have some good theories."

"We're living under this delusion that we're BROADENING our experiences because we're connecting to such large groups of people. More of the same thinking isn't exactly a recipe for learning."

Great course from Darren Rowse and Andy Wibbels. I'd take it, but the timing doesn't work for me.
