25th January 2017: Jeff Bowers – The Practical and Principled Problems with Educational Neuroscience


The core claim of educational neuroscience is that neuroscience can improve teaching in the classroom. Many strong claims are made about the successes and the promise of this new discipline. By contrast, Jeff Bowers shows that there are no current examples of neuroscience motivating new and effective teaching methods, and argues that neuroscience is unlikely to improve teaching in the future.
