EDUC 7018 - Neuroscience and Education

North Terrace Campus - Semester 2 - 2014

Learning is central to education. Research in neuroscience is having an increasing impact on our understanding of learning. By looking at the brain, scientists are studying the very complex processes that underpin our memory, speech and language, thinking and reasoning, reading and mathematics. The course explores links between our own experiences as educators, various perspectives from cognitive psychology, and neuroscientific findings. It also addresses several 'neuromyths', where neuroscientific findings seem to have been extrapolated rather too far into educational practice.
