Brain Literacy Training to Empower Educators to Meet Diverse Student Needs
May 15, 2023 @ 8:30 am – May 16, 2023 @ 4:30 pm EDT
This innovative Act 48 Continuing Education (CE) training opportunity in brain literacy is offered by the Learning Disabilities Association of America to foster practitioner knowledge, skills, and opinions toward difference/disability through multimedia lectures, small group discussions, and actual student case study exercises.
Teaching changes student brains, but few educators are trained to know how their instruction and/or interventions affect student neurodevelopment. On the other hand, educational neuroscientists know how the brain works, but they typically don’t know much about schools or classroom instruction or intervention. Overcoming this gap has the potential to revolutionize educational practices by helping workshop attendees develop what is termed brain literacy.
Faculty Team Leaders: Drs. James Hale and Lisa Hain, Center for Teaching Brain Literacy.
Act48 credits (16 CE Hours) sponsored by Provident Charter School. Participants receive certificates from the Brain Literacy Foundations and the Learning Disabilities Institute.
Registration is $99 per person, which includes breakfast and lunch both days!
