Episode Info: Welcome to Episode 19 of the ThinkUDL podcast. In this episode I talk to author Allison Posey about her book Engage the Brain: How to Design for Learning that Taps into the Power of Emotion. Allison works as a Curriculum and Design Specialist at CAST and we had the chance to record this interview just after she had given the opening session at CAST’s annual symposium on the campus of Harvard Law School in Cambridge, Massachusetts. You might hear some background noise around us in the midst of the symposium as we sat down for a conversation about the importance of emotion in all kinds of learning. From which kind of muppet your headspace resembles, to “reflecting about reflecting” in assignment design and curriculum, and even using “magic” in order to learn what a novice brain might be thinking, Allison helps us to understand how emotion and learning are intertwined, and what we can do to help our learners remember and learn what is really important.
