The focus of student achievement has extended beyond reading and math scores and shifted to a “learning by doing, making, building, and discovering” approach. Despite the fact that this resurgence in experiential learning is supported by recent brain-based research about cognition, problem-solving, and innovation, females are still under-represented in STEM-based programs and careers. Join us on Tuesday, November 7th for a free professional development webinar at 9am CT, and learn about this often-discussed hot topic.
Presented by Dr. Melissa Hughes, we'll explore neuroscientific findings about cognitive function, factors which enhance or impede cognition, and the long-standing gender biases that have shaped the educational experiences provided to boys and girls in the classroom. Join us to learn how to apply these findings in your instruction, and engage all students in whole-brain STEM-based learning experiences.
Dr. Melissa Hughes is the founder of The Andrick Group and the author of the book, Happy Hour with Einstein. She develops and delivers professional development opportunities for educators across the country based upon whole-brain thinking and learning for deeper cognition and increased student engagement.
