The scientifically substantiated art of teaching: Mind, Brain and Education science
5 June 2013
Guest lecturer Dr Tracey Tokuhama-Espinosa will explain the new academic discipline of Mind, Brain and Education (MBE) science at a workshop on Thursday 4 July.
This workshop introduces the new academic discipline of Mind, Brain and Education science. MBE science is the new and improved ‘brain-based learning’ known as the scientifically substantiated art of teaching. It is the intersection of cognitive neuroscience, education and psychology, and it is a paradigm shift in formal education.
Master’s of Education programmes around the world are slowly adopting this new model, starting in Harvard in 2001. Popular press information about brain-based learning has been applied indiscreetly and inconsistently to classroom teaching practices for many years.
This workshop seeks to separate the wheat from the chaff (how do we know what is ‘good’ information and what is just commercial?), and to convince (recruit? invite?) the audience to wear the MBE hat and embrace its shared goals of improving teaching by applying our improved understanding of how the brain learns.
Director of IDEA and a full-time Professor of Education and Neuropsychology at the Universidad San Francisco de Quito, Tracey has conducted conferences, workshops and research in 17 countries around the world (Argentina, Colombia, Peru, Ecuador, Costa Rica, Mexico, Australia, Norway, Germany, Italy, France, Switzerland, the UK, Belgium, Holland, Thailand and the USA). She has more than 20 years’ experience in teaching, over a decade of experience in teacher training and is now primarily focused on educational research. www.traceytokuhama.com
The workshop will run from 2-4pm on Thursday 4 July 2013 in 106, Roberts Building, Torrington Place, London. The event is open to all but booking is essential.
