CAEA Special Event: From Brain to Mind: Using Neuroscience to Guide Change in Education

Seats for our annual  The Bertram L. Scott/Elizabeth A. Fender Distinguished Lecture, “From Brain to Mind: Using Neuroscience to Guide Change in Adult Education” filled in a record 24 hours.


If you did not get a ticket, there are still two ways for you to participate:


  1. Join us in the facilitated “overflow room” next door to the live event (DePaul Conference Center, Rook 8011), where we will stream the talk and have an onsite facilitator to support the small group exercises.

This will only take a few minutes, but must be done a few days in advance.)


Event Description:

James E. Zull, Professor of Biology, Biochemistry and Cognitive Science at Case Western Reserve University and author of "From Brain to Mind: Using Neuroscience to Guide Change in Education" will lead a workshop to help us learn how to use the latest developments in neuroscience to improve our work with adult learners.


James E. Zull is Professor of   Biology and Founding Director of the University Center for Innovation in Teaching and Education (UCITE) at Case Western Reserve University. After receiving his Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin (Madison) he taught and conducted research in Biochemistry at CWRU for 25 years, resulting in over 100 publications. He became UCITE Director in 1994 and began to study the literature on learning and neuroscience, which led to his books The Art of Changing the Brain; Enriching Teaching by Exploring the Biology of Learning, and From Brain to Mind; Using Neuroscience as a Guide to Change in Education. These books provide an accessible discussion of the biology of learning for teachers at all levels.
