Keynote Address: Bringing Curricula to Life Through Mind, Brain & Education Science and Technology Enhanced Learning
Kristen Betts, EDD, Clinical Professor; School of Education, Drexel University
Research in Mind, Brain & Education (MBE) Science and advancements in technology provide critical insight about how the brain continues to change over a lifetime through experience and learning. This interactive presentation will engage attendees in differentiating neuromyths from evidence-based practice. Innovative and high touch strategies will be shared to bring curricula to life through Universal Design for Learning, differentiated instruction, and multi-modality feedback. Strategies for instructional design, instruction, and assessment will be shared to support active learning, flow, and transfer of learning across real-world contexts. The presentation will conclude with an epilogue focused on transforming courses from good to great to exceptional through Brain Targeted Teaching and building upon evidence-based practices.
