29 JANUARY 2019 – PRETORIA – ITSI, the pioneering provider of educational tools based on established research in the field of educational neurosciences, today announces that it will be hosting the second annual seminar in Africa on Mind, Brain, and Education.
Mind, Brain, and Education (MBE) refers to the relationship between how our brains develop (biologically) and how we learn. The human brain is a unique and dynamic organ that never stops developing. Recent discoveries in cognitive science have revealed that the human brain physically changes when it learns, and that after practicing certain skills, it becomes increasingly easier to continue learning and improving those skills. This has a significant effect on how schools and teachers should be designing their teaching plans and how learners should be taught.
Following the success of the 2018 seminar, which featured the internationally acclaimed facilitators and authors, Glenn Whitman and Dr Ian Kelleher from the Centre for Transformative Teaching and Learning (CTTL) in Maryland, USA and was attended by 200 educators, school leaders, and education specialists, the 2019 Mind, Brain, and Education seminar will explore the latest findings on neuroscience research and its relation to education, and will ask the question: “How do people learn and what can we do to improve learning?”
Dr. Lieb Liebenberg, ITSI’s CEO, commented, “The 2019 Mind, Brain, and Education seminar will again be targeted at teachers and lecturers from primary, secondary and tertiary educational institution in Africa, who want to connect, learn, grow and develop both personally and professionally. A total of 250 educators are expected to attend the event, and the purpose of the event is to bring educators in Africa together under one roof to improve the state of knowledge and dialogue between education and the developmental and cognitive sciences, as well as develop educators’ ability to know, apply, conduct and lead their school in the most innovative thinking; and last but certainly not least, to provide tools that can improve teacher quality and student achievement.”
The event is endorsed by SACE and attendees will receive 15 CPTD points whilst walking away from the event with a ready-to-implement action plan.
