Content and Keyword Network Analysis of Brain-based Learning for ACE and HRD
This comprehensive review of the research on brain-based learning (BBL) is believed to extend the landscape of understanding educational phenomenon in adult education and organizational settings through the lens of neuroscience. Using content analysis, we extracted key research themes and methodological choices from the body of BBL studies. In addition, we explored the relationships and proximity among key concepts of BBL research using keyword network analysis. For data analysis, we reviewed the current literature on BBL addressing both adult continuing education (ACE) and human resource development (HRD) topics from 1985 to 2019. From the study findings, we provide implications and directions for future BBL research and practice along with several limitations of the study.
