From Laboratories to Learning
The Science of Learning (SoL) field is gaining maturity, with proponents extolling its potential impact on educational practice. Theoretical advances have led to laboratory experiments that have the potential to improve learning. In this inaugural SoL symposium: From Laboratories to Learning, invited speakers will cover topics that investigate possible correlations or causal relationships between brain functioning and development and promote an interdisciplinary approach to understanding the underlying neural and cognitive mechanisms of learning, that is ultimately oriented towards optimising and maximising every learner’s potential.
International keynote speakers include Prof Brian Butterworth from the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience at the University College London, and Assoc Prof Paul Dux from the Queensland Brain Institute at the University of Queensland. Other speakers include Asst Prof Azilawati Jamaludin from NIE/NTU, Prof Daniel Ansari from the University of Western Ontario, Prof Michael Chee from Duke-NUS Medical School, and Asst Prof Suzy Styles from NTU.
