Brain-Friendly Classrooms for Students with Diverse Needs

This online course is designed to make you reflect further on your current practice. It will give an overview of diversity and brain friendly classrooms. This course will focus on some of the challenges learners with specific needs face in the classroom and how brain friendly teaching strategies can make a difference to their learning, focus, and emotion regulation.


Diversity in classrooms has been part of the educational system for decades and the interventions to address the spread of learning styles and needs have varied. Brain research has provided teachers with a better understanding of how students with a range of needs learn, and what is essential for instructional practice in the curriculum.

This online course will broaden your understanding about students who have attention issues, distractibility, emotion dysregulation and the brain regions that are responsible for learning and behaviour. Through specially selected media, you will hear from educators and specialists in the field about the importance of brain friendly classrooms, and you will learn about specific strategies that are drawn from the brain research. 


This online course will allow participants to:

  • Understand that a belonging classroom is inclusive, embraces diversity and is brain-friendly;
  • Recognise the importance of teacher behaviour as a brain-based strategy;
  • Create a responsive classroom that is underpinned by brain research.
