The Educated Brain seminar series

The 'Educated Brain' seminar series

The ESRC-funded seminar series The Educated Brain was convened to share the latest research from educational neuroscience, psychology, and linguistics with teachers and practitioners in order to consider potential implications for teacher training, best practice, and educational policy. Over the course of two years the series spanned a range of topics from the importance of play, speech development, school readiness, bilingualism, dyslexia, the adolescent brain, autism, and the effects of stress and deprivation. 

Two reports, Infancy and Early Childhood and Late Childhood and Adolescence were complied by a team of early-careers researchers to summarise key findings. The series concluded with a research and policy showcase hosted Daniel Zeichner MP at the House of Commons on 24 April 2018.
