Mind, Brain, and Education – The Science of Learning

Summer Institute

The 2019 ACS Centre for Inspiring Summer Institute is Mind, Brain, and Education – The Science of Learning and will be held at ACS International School, Cobham on Wednesday 26 and Thursday 27 June 2019.

 

What is it about?

This two-day workshop is a deep dive into Mind, Brain, Education science and how this research can inform, validate, and transform teaching and learning. Purposefully designed for educators within all school settings, this workshop will develop educators’ MBE knowledge, mindsets, and translational skills.

 

Who will present it?

The institute will be led by Dr. Ian Kelleher and Glenn Whitman from The Center for Transformative Teaching & Learning at St. Andrew’s Episcol School, nr. Washington DC, USA, and authors of Neuroteach: Brain Science and the Future of Education.

 

What are the aims of the workshop?

  • To provide an opportunity to learn and develop knowledge about Mind, Brain, and Education and how it is connected to the whole child.
  • To give ACS teachers and, teachers from nearby local schools, the opportunity to attend a workshop that they would otherwise not have the opportunity to attend (i.e. because it is in the US and the cost would be great)
  • To identify ways in which MBE research can inform, validate, and transform educational practice
  • To support the development methods to implement MBE-informed strategies in classrooms and evaluate their effectiveness

 

Who is it aimed at?

All Teachers and School Leaders.

 

How much does it cost?

ACS Centre for Inspiring Minds is offering this course free of charge to any educator who wishes to attend.
