This edWebinar, facilitated by the internationally recognized Center for Transformative Teaching & Learning (CTTL), dives into the most promising research and strategies in educational neuroscience that can inform and transform how we teach and how students learn. Glenn Whitman, Executive Director of The CTTL, will use the Science of Learning to teach the Science of Learning. Viewers will be able to return to their school, program, or organization with “next-day,” research-informed strategies that elevate the quality of their teaching, student achievement, and the whole child’s school experience.
Viewers in this edWebinar will be able to:
- Connect, extend, and challenge their current understanding of how the brain learns and classroom practices with new ideas and ways of engaging with students at home or online
- Apply promising research-informed strategies in Mind, Brain, and Education (MBE) Science to how they teach and how students learn
- Define and explain the importance of elevating Mind, Brain, and Education (MBE) Science in their schools or programs
This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to K-12 teachers, school and district leaders, instructional specialists, professional development coordinators, and deans of faculty.
