Innovations in Educational Neuroscience: Transforming Practice through Emerging Research

8:30am-4:00pm, Nov 15, 2018

Jack Poole Hall, Robert H. Lee Alumni Centre, 6163 University Boulevard
Educational Neuroscience and Healthy Child Development Research Cluster

Formed in early 2018 and still very much in its formational stages, the main aim of the Cluster is to fuse neuroscience and child learning research into one novel discipline: educational neuroscience and healthy child development. We are bringing together researchers from previously independent disciplines (i.e., neuroscience, psychology, education) to have a widespread impact on children, educators, families, and researchers, ultimately improving the educational experiences of children in BC and beyond.  The Cluster is led by Drs. Lara Boyd, Kimberly Schonert-Reichl and Rachel Weber. Initial members of the Cluster include representation from at least four UBC faculties and also from international research institutes.

This special event offered by the Educational Neuroscience and Healthy Child Development Research Cluster – hosted at the Jack Poole Hall in UBC on November 15, 2018 – is designed to bring together scholars, educators, students, and practitioners from across several disciplines.  We will hear about the latest science and practice in the new field of Educational Neuroscience.  Participants will be encouraged to share and connect throughout the day to inspire new directions in research and practice.  We will also look for future opportunities to work collaboratively toward groundbreaking discoveries that will ultimately lead to more effective approaches for promoting healthy child development.
