No “One Size Fits All” for learning

This is a valuable TED talk (Vancouver 2015) by Lara Boyd, Canada Research Chair in Neurobiology of Motor Learning.  Although her main expertise is in stroke and motor learning, I felt this TED talk can speak for learning in general.  Great news is that neuroplasticity in the brain is not limited by age and even at rest the brain is highly active.  What I found most intriguing is that everyone’s brain changes in different ways as we learn.  There is “no one size fits all”.  This is important to remember as instructors that we vary our teaching strategies to accommodate the wide variety of different ways that students learn.
