Annie Brookman-Byrne, a PhD student in the Centre for Educational Neuroscience, and Lia Commissar from the Wellcome Trust, have jointly published an article in the journal Mind Brain and Education. The paper summarises the International Mind, Brain, and Education Society pre-conference which was held in Toronto in 2016. The pre-conference was designed to share new research findings and host discussions about how best to move the field of educational neuroscience forward. The article captures discussions from the day and describes new Wellcome Trust funded work in response to the challenges. The article is freely available via this link.
Here are the key questions the paper considers:
- What have we learned from doing educational neuroscience research in the classroom?
- How can we close the gap between educational neuroscience research and classroom practice?
- Where do we want educational neuroscience to be in two years, and what do we need to make that happen?
