I chose this particular blog title, first of all because I am fascinated by neurology and secondly I wanted something that would also work for the topic of adult learning. A synaptic junction is essentially made up of two neurons (a cell that transmits nerve impulses) and a space in between. The two nerves “talk” to each other via chemical or electrical signals in order to carry out our bodily functions (e.g. eating, seeing, breathing, moving…). We make new neuronal connections every time we learn something new whether it is cognitive or physical.

Like neurons, as adult instructors and learners we need to connect with others in order to expand our knowledge as educators.
