Current research in neuroscience is fostering a vibrant dialogue between classroom professionals and scientists who study the brain. In this course, teachers discover advances in brain imaging and laboratory science that inform teaching, and neuroscientists reveal how teachers' challenges and expertise are the impetus for new avenues of research. Designed for both pre-service and in-service teachers who are interested in:

  • The latest research on how the brain works
  • Exploring new solutions to problems encountered in the classroom
  • Reigniting their passion for teaching by exploring new ideas about learning
  • Refining their understanding of what it means to learn and the important role teachers play in encouraging that process.

This video workshop for pre-service and in-service teachers consists of six units and concluding video programs and an online workshop guide. Review the course work requirements and the supporting website for more information.
