LDA and the Center for Teaching Brain Literacy are teaming up to provide an in-person brain literacy training for educators on May 15th and 16th at the RLA Conference and Learning Center, just outside of Pittsburgh, PA!
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.
Act 48 credits (16 CE Hours) sponsored by Provident Charter School. Participants receive certificates from the Brain Literacy Foundations and the Learning Disabilities Institute.
Faculty Team Leaders: Drs. James Hale and Lisa Hain, Center for Teaching Brain Literacy
Registration is $99 per person, which includes breakfast and lunch both days!
