MBE Science of Learning Virtual Training Workshop (via Neuroteach Global)

Beginning - Jan. 28, 2019 and continuing for 27 weeks

Online/Grant Wood AEA

The most promising research to help elevate the effectiveness of teachers and to close student achievement gaps is Mind, Brain, and Education science. Elevating a teacher or school leader’s understanding of how the student brain learns, works, and thrives allows educators to better challenge and support each student as an individual learner.Neuroteach Global was designed with an understanding of how the adult brain learns and the constraints on a teacher’s time. It therefore delivers the strongest body of research in Mind, Brain, and Education science in 5-7 minute micro-learning experiences spaced out over time on a digital device of one’s choosing.

Neuroteach Global was developed by the internationally recognized Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning and the authors of the book, “Neuroteach: Brain Science and the Future of Education.”Teachers and school leaders who complete Level I of Neuroteach Global will have further developed their understanding of the science behind learning. They will gain new research-informed strategies that they can apply the “next day” to how they design schools, classrooms, and work with each individual student.
