Discover how promising research and “next-day” strategies in the Science of Learning can help teachers support each student’s academic, social, and emotional recovery from a disrupted school year. 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.
Participants in this edWebinar will be able to:
- Connect, extend, and challenge their current understanding of how the brain learns.
- Learn new classroom practices for engaging with students in person and remotely.
