Strengthening educational foundations: Implications of neuroscience research for curriculum, education, and learning

Strengthening educational foundations: Implications of neuroscience research for curriculum, education, and learning

Co-organized by the UNESCO International Bureau of Education (IBE) and the International Brain Research Organization (IBRO), this event seeks to contribute to closing the gap between scientific knowledge on learning and its application to education policies and practice.
The event brings together current and former IBRO/IBE Science of Learning Senior Fellows, who present cutting-edge neuroscience findings with implications for education policy, teaching, and learning; as well as initiatives towards applying neuroscientific knowledge to strengthen teaching and learning. Their new insights and perspectives shed light on the significance of underlying learning and developmental processes for education and have the potential to powerfully contribute to global efforts to address the current global learning crisis and the future of learning.
