Research shows that learners retain 10% of information from reading as the only learning method, 20%from hearing, and 30% from seeing; however, this number can increase to 90% if learners can use seeing, hearing, saying, and doing. To activate learners’ “limbic system”, enhance learners’ learning experience, and connect theory and practice better, at the XXX Organization, we designed an Interdisciplinary Mobility training program by using the educational neuroscience theory. This two-hour training program was to provide a standardized, validated assessment tool, and targeted interventions that empower nurses to accelerate patient recovery by developing an individualized, progressive mobility plan and assist the patient in its execution. The class was co-educated by the physical therapist and nurse educators. Several teaching methods such as audient response system, game, demonstration/ return demonstration, case study, and role play were used to stimulate multi
