Neuro Education Initiative

The School of Education’s Neuro-Education Initiative furthers the understanding of how research findings from the cognitive and neurosciences has the potential to inform teaching and learning through research, collaboration, and advocacy. In partnership with the School of Medicine, Kennedy-Krieger Institute, and the Brain Science Institute, this Initiative fosters dialog among educators and brain science researchers to develop joint research projects and magnifies the potential for current findings to enrich educational practice.

"Linking brain research to education is extremely valuable to our understanding of student development and learning," said Mariale Hardiman, author of Connecting Brain-Research with Effective Teaching: Brain Targeted Teaching Model.
