BrainCanDo: Pathways from neuroscience to the classroom

BrainCanDo invites you to Queen Anne’s School on Thursday 15 March 2018 for the BrainCanDo Conference: ‘Pathways from neuroscience to the classroom’.

For the past five years BrainCanDo has worked with researchers in educational neuroscience to develop practical teaching and learning strategies that have a strong neuroscientific evidence base. We invite you to join us for a one-day CPD accredited conference where you will hear from leading figures in the field as they share their expertise on the value of neuroscience to education. You will be given the opportunity to develop your teaching and learning toolkit to enhance practical strategies that will transform your classroom.
