Speaker information

Tracey Tokuhama-Espinosa, Director of IDEA and a fulltime Professor of Education and Neuropsychology, Universidad San Francisco de Quito, Tracey Tokuhama-Espinosa

This workshop introduces the new academic discipline of Mind Brain, and Education (MBE) science. MBE science is the new and improved brain-based learning known as the scientifically substantiated art of teaching. It is the intersection of cognitive neuroscience, education, and psychology, and it is a paradigm shift in formal education.

Masters of Education programs around the world are slowly adapting this new model, starting in Harvard in 2001. Popular press information about “brain-based learning,” has been applied indiscreetly and inconsistently to classroom teaching practices for many years.

This workshop seeks to separate the wheat from the chaff (how do we know what is good information and what is just commercial?), and to convince (recruit? invite?) the audience to wear the MBE hat and embrace its shared goals of improving teaching by applying our improved understanding of how the brain learns.
