This Learning & the Brain Summer Institute will be led by Andrew Watson. The program translates well-established neuroscience and psychology findings into specific classroom strategies. We will especially emphasize the practical teaching application of brain research, with a consistent focus on healthy skepticism. The program offers participants frequent opportunities to discuss their own teaching practices, and to apply research findings to their lesson-plans, syllabi, assessments, and classroom practices. Active participation is expected throughout this Institute through group discussion. Participants will be expected to bring in material and questions from their own experiences to share with the group.
Andrew Watson, MA. EdM, has been connecting brain research with teachers and schoolsfor the better part of a decade. A one-time dean of faculty, and an award-winning teacher with 16 years of experience, Andrew Watson now presents on classroom uses of neuroscience and psychology research.

He has presented at schools and workshops across the country and serves as an advisor to several organizations, including “The People’s Science” and “The Brain Education Project.” Andrew is the Editor of the Learning & the Brain Blog and author of Learning Begins: The Science of Working Memory and Attention for the Classroom Teacher (2017) and Learning Grows (Forthcoming 2019).
