This course explores how advances in the field of neuroscience impact learning. Brain imaging studies have facilitated new understanding of the brain’s neural systems and how they relate to memory, attention, emotion and creativity. This course focuses on the applications of neuroscience research to teaching and learning. Through lecture, discussion and hands-on activities, students learn strategies to apply neuroscience to the classroom. This course communicates and promotes a burgeoning educational research base that marries cognitive science with education. It also explores strategies that stimulate what we know about the brain’s natural approaches to learning.
