YOUR EXPERIENCE & IMMERSION IN
Humans are hardwired to learn. It’s how our brains are structured. Yet we are immersed in institutions that develop habits, preferences, and defaults that aren’t maximizing our ability to learn.
Much more than a set of tips for educators, your Experience & Immersion in Brain-centric Design delivers you a teaching framework that aligns with how the brain accepts new information and how people love to learn.
YOU HAVE TO BE CLEVER... OR DO YOU?
If you’ve ever felt exhausted from being clever enough to gain and regain audience attention again and again, this course is for you.
If you’ve ever wondered if there is a learning model that works every time, BcD is your answer.
Using Brain-centric Design is like a perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe. If you follow the recipe, you get a perfect Chocolate Chip cookie. With that recipe as a base, a good baker can be as clever as the situation demands. Brain-centric Design is that kind of flexible.
Means we're legit. Brain-centric design is endorsed by the Institute for Connecting Neuroscience with Teaching & Learning and has been presented at Columbia University. Our methodology is based on decades of peer reviewed research and is the product of advancement in cognitive neuroscience.
Pedagogy is the method and practice of teaching, and our pedagogy redefines how educators teach and learn. It reshapes educational strategies by taking into consideration both the science behind cognitive learning and a practical understanding of students and their needs.

IF IT ISN’T THE TEACHER ITS THE TIMELINE
Even if you are skilled at presenting information, you likely still struggle against a timeline. In this fast-paced era, educators of every stripe are expected to produce results as fast as possible. That means that you don’t have time for trial and error when it comes to your educational content. With our Experience and Immersion course, you’ll learn how to structure your lessons to convey the critical information in the shortest amount of time. You might even have fun along the way.
INVEST IN YOUR FUTURE
Experience & Immersion is a liberating, skill-elevating recipe to improve the way you present information. Join a professional learning community to keep your skills sharp.
If you’re a teacher, your greatest achievement (and challenge) is to help students become successful adults. With BcD, you’ll learn how to empower and engage even the most challenging classrooms.
If you’re an entrepreneur or motived team player within your organization, you need 21st-century learning skills. Period. That means you have to have what we call adaptive expertise, as opposed to routine expertise. Today’s workforce needs to be flexible problem solvers.
FINDING THE SECRET
Finding the secret to teaching efficiently and effectively was not an easy endeavor. It took decades of peer-reviewed research and dedicated researchers to develop the learning sciences our method is based on. It also took over a decade of educational experience and marketing experience, as well as a near fatal motorcycle accident, to create BcD.
A horrific accident left Rich without motor skills in the right side of his body. During his recovery, he spent his time educating himself on how to relearn to walk. There wasn’t much information available. Just a series of people with tips and first step videos. Rich decided if he was ever going to walk again, it’d be up to him. So, he learned the basics of neuroscience. Already an accomplished global instructional designer for Fortune 500 hundred companies, Rich applied these new brain insights to his client's work immediately after his recovery. They worked there, too…sort of. They didn't work exactly like he wanted, at least not every time. Why wasn’t the information presented or taught completely understood by the audience every time? His goal became to decipher how any information could be delivered to someone and be understood deeply. He asked questions like, “How does the brain accept information? How do people love to learn?” Rich needed a cognitive learning neuroscientist...
DR. KIERAN O’MAHONY
In 1981, I found myself back in academia…again. I had just ended a 10-year career teaching science and social studies at an inner city all-boys high school. I left because I was desperately seeking solutions to large philosophical questions that seemed to evolve into daily crises in my classrooms. In the faculty room, we spoke in forward-looking platitudes and used phrases like “equality of educational opportunity.” But I could see quite plainly that neither “equality” nor “opportunity” was associated with the education we were doling out. I felt like I was part of a stratification engine that unintentionally and unknowingly did bad things to young people every day. After a horrible event at school, I arrived in Seattle wondering, How could a 13-year-old become so dissatisfied with life at school and home that the only choice left was suicide? It took me the best part of 40 years to locate the solution. The journey that contributed to this book involved many dead ends for me, as well as unfortunate and time-consuming false starts and frustrating educational misadventures in academia. However, eventually, it led me to the cognitive learning model in this course, and to Rich Carr.
