We recently attend a STEM Symposium put on by California Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo. At this symposium one of the four speakers Anne Marie Bergen, who is currently a Teacher in Residence for the College of Science and Mathematics, Biological Sciences at Cal Poly. During her speech, she shared with us some very interesting information about an organization call “Learning and the Brain.” Below is some information about the organization, what they do, and how to get involved.
Learning & the Brain has been bringing neuroscientists and educators together since 1999 to explore new research on the brain and learning and its implications for education. These conferences and summer institutes bring cutting-edge neuroscience and educational research directly from the researchers themselves to educators, clinicians, counselors, speech-language and special education professionals to improve their practice. Research centers and labs at Harvard, Yale, MIT, Stanford, Berkeley, UC Berkeley, University of Chicago, Johns Hopkins,and other leading institutes have joined forces with us to provide the latest findings and co-sponsor our efforts. Today, Learning & the Brain produces three multi-day conferences a year, a one-day symposium in New York City and three hands-on summer institutes. It also provides awards to upcoming and senior researchers in the field of neuroeducation through our ‘Transforming Education Through Neuroscience” award and the Learning & the Brain Foundation. In addition, Learning & the Brain sponsors the online Learning & the Brain Society and an online store.
