Strategies for Student Success: Tools for Teachers from Brain Researchers

Research today no longer carries the general uncertainty of earlier “brain-based research.” Across the globe, researchers have been combining their knowledge in the field of mind, brain and education science. The result? Educators can better rely on research to improve teaching and learning in our classrooms. We now have an opportunity to examine our practices and learn ways to make our teaching even more effective. In doing this, we increase our own skills and satisfaction in our professional work. This module will present some of the rich tools we can find in the research toolbox—and we encourage you to keep examining that toolbox!

Session Objectives:

By the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Examine the tools from research on the brain and mind to help create cognitive conditions that foster effective learning for all students;
  • Apply this knowledge to our own professional practice;
  • Build our instructional repertoire to help meet the needs of all students.

This session will be held face-to-face at the Schultz Center.
