Although there is some disagreement about the feasibility of directly connecting findings in brain science to educational settings, to ignore the implications of this research may be, as Eric Jenson has said, “irresponsible.”
If we agree with Jensen, what are some key learning science findings that we should know about? Presenters and attendees at this Friday’s Celebration of Teaching and Learning at Shelby Campus will consider this very question.
The Celebration theme, “Teaching in Harmony with the Brain: Applying Learning Science in Today’s Classroom and Beyond,” will provide UofL faculty, staff, and GTAs with a venue in which they can consider what learning science has to offer, and an opportunity to reflect upon how they might apply this research in their teaching. Learn more and register for the Friday event.
If you are unable to attend the full-day program on Friday at Shelby Campus, join Celebration keynote speaker Dr. Terry Doyle on Thursday for one of two pre-Celebration Workshops (one on the Health Science Campus from noon-1 p.m. and one on Belknap Campus from 3-5 p.m.). Learn more and register.
Is there a pressing question about learning science that you are bringing to the Celebration?
