Non-invasive Brain Surgery

Clark Quinn

And if we design learning, e.g. instruction, we can potentially change the brain without surgery. However, (and yes, this is my point) treating it as anything less than brain surgery (or rocket science), isn’t doing justice to what’s known and what’s to be done. Again, the brain is complex, and consequently so is learning design.
