We are delighted to announce an online lecture “Educational Neuroscience: Seeds of New Thinking About How We Learn” on the 6th July with neuroscientist Dr Cathy Rogers, who is co-author of recently released book Educational Neuroscience: The Basics.
Cathy will talk about new perspectives on how we, as humans, learn. This fascinating event will appeal to teachers, Montessorians and parents alike.
There is a growing and widespread interest in neuroscience and what it reveals, particularly from the perspective of education and child development. Much of what Cathy will discuss resonates deeply with the Montessori approach. Join us to:
- Discover what neuroscience is and what it can teach us, particularly about our approach to education
- Reflect on your own experiences of learning
- Hear about links between neuroscience and Montessori
Cathy is an engaging and entertaining speaker. She recently spoke at the AMI Annual General Meeting in the Netherlands and received a standing ovation.
More About the Speaker
Dr Cathy Rogers is the co-author of Educational Neuroscience: The Basics and completed her PhD in Educational Neuroscience at Birkbeck, University of London, after many years spent as a producer and director of science television programmes. It was those years spent working with other creatives that first piqued her interest in the brain basis of creativity – and this was the area she focused on for her PhD, investigating the processes involved in creativity in children.
Her research interests are broad; she has worked with policy organisations and on the ground to improve the teaching of adult literacy, she works with a lab focused on understanding the factors that bring about social change and she is writing a hopeful, science-based children’s book about the future. Underpinning all her research is a passion to communicate ideas clearly, no matter how complicated the subject matter.
