Participants included students, academic staff, instructional designers, and professionals attending short courses at tertiary level.A number of case studies are discussed as evidence for the value of the proposed model for higher education. This title consists of seven chapters, covering: the theoretical framework, baseline study, professional development, studies in Whole Brain® application, learning material that makes a difference, multidisciplinary collaboration, and the way forward.
