Organise to Learn

The Organize to Learn theory focuses on the creation of knowledge and the use of that knowledge within an organization.


The key aspects of organizational learning theory are that learning happens when people are in contact with each other, as they seek and solve problems.

Scherder studied psychology at this university in the late 1970s, specializing in neuropsychology.

In 1995 he obtained his doctorate in this field and was appointed professor Human Movement Sciences at the University of Groningen (RuG).

As a knowledge partner, Erik Scherder inspires Braintality with questions about how we can influence behavior through the brain, but also how we can influence the brain through behavior. As you'll understand we believe that is pretty interesting stuff.

In addition to his work, Erik Scherder is committed to the Hersenstichting, which we as Braintality support financially to keep research ongoing.
