Neuroscience in the Classroom: Current Progress and Future Challenges

Registration has now opened for a day conference organised by PhD students at the Centre for Educational Neuroscience. It will take place on Friday 17 March 2017, at the Wellcome Trust. The conference is supported by the Bloomsbury Doctoral Training Centre and the Wellcome Trust, and is dedicated to discussing the progress our field has made and challenges for the future.

We will have a keynote from Prof Gaia Scerif, and talks on educational outcomes from Dr Dénes Szücs, Dr Sinead Rhodes, and Dr Michelle Ellefson. We are also delighted to have updates on five of the neuroscience and education projects funded by the Wellcome Trust and Education Endowment Foundation. The day will include plenty of discussion, including a poster session over lunch and a wine reception at the end.

We are inviting poster presentations on work related to the field of educational neuroscience, and will award poster prizes for outstanding work that bridges the gap between neuroscience and the classroom. Since there are a limited number of spaces available, preference will be given to those who submit a poster abstract.

Find a detailed programme below, and please sign up for a place here:
Places will be confirmed by 10 February.
