“Neuromyths” and Their Impact on Education

Wednesday, September 19, 2018
Noon - 12:50 PM
Genrich-Rusling Room, LeChase 215

Neuromyths are common misconceptions about how the mind and brain work. More than half of educators share these misconceptions, so several of us in the Warner community have some inaccurate beliefs! In this interactive session, we’ll consider some of the most pervasive misunderstandings and, importantly, we’ll dive into the potential problems they can cause in how we teach and learn.

Presented by Samantha Daley, Assistant Professor of Teaching & Curriculum, Counseling & Human Development, and Educational Policy at the Warner School of Education.

A light lunch from Stromboli's Restaurant will be served. Food will be available at 11:45 am. The program will begin promptly at noon.
