The Centre for Educational Neuroscience works with many partner organisations to carry out research and disseminate findings. You can find out more about some of our collaborators in the links below and we would encourage you to explore these sites for some great free resources:
Learnus is a community dedicated to bringing educators together with those who specialize in the study of the brain, the mind and behaviour. They seek to use the insights from high quality research to improve and enrich learning.
IMBES (the International Mind, Brain and Education Society)
IMBES seeks to facilitate cross-cultural collaboration in biology, education and the cognitive and developmental sciences. Their objectives are to improve knowledge and dialogue, create and develop resources for scientists, practitioners, public policy makers and to identify research directions and promising educational practices.
Of central importance to the work of Brain Can Do is the development of a strong neuroscientific evidence base to inform and underpin education. Their aim is to empower teaching professionals to use the latest findings from neuroscience research to transform and enrich their classrooms and to empower students to understand how learning happens.
The Learning ScientistsThe learning scientists are cognitive psychological scientists interested in research on education. Their main research focus is the science of learning and their vision is to make scientific research on learning more accessible to students, teachers and other educators.
Wellcome Education, part of the Wellcome Trust
uses knowledge about how people learn to develop and test evidence-informed teaching practices that help young people achieve more at school. They also highlight how combining expertise from education, neuroscience and psychology can help to dispel neuromyths
– common misconceptions about learning and the brain.
The Education Endowment Foundation is an independent charity dedicated to breaking the link between family income and educational achievement. They support teachers and senior leaders by providing free, independent and evidence-based resources — summaries
and practical tools
— designed to improve practice and boost learning.
The Research Schools Network, a UK-wide network, provides school-led support for the use of evidence to improve teaching practice. Research schools work with other schools in their network to share what they know about putting research into practice and help make better use of evidence to inform teaching.
The Chartered College of Teaching
is the professional and chartered body for all teachers and leaders who want to work in a more effective, informed way. Their vision is to help ensure that teachers are working in the most effective, informed way to provide the best possible education for children and young people. They produce an excellent termly journal Impact
which connects research findings to classroom practice.
We also work with other organisations with a similar remit to our own, including the Centre for Neuroscience in Education in Cambridge and the centre in Bristol
