Skip to 0 minutes and 5 secondsHi, I'm Ken Purnell. And I look after the Master of Education in Neuroscience at Central Queensland University, also the FutureLearn courses. And in this particular course, we're going to give you an overview, a feel for education in neuroscience and its implications for your practises. So I truly hope that you enjoy the couple of weeks that you spend with us. It's only a couple of hours a week. But it'll give you a really good taste, or a really good feel for what education in neuroscience is about.
Welcome to the Course
What will I learn?
Educators are brain changers through the learning experiences they create. They are neural architects working with students or clients. It is critical to have informed knowledge about the brain to maximise learning and wellness.
Over the next two weeks, you will explore how our social brain connects with others in ways that are core to our very existence. You will gain contemporary insights into the brain that will inform your professional practice and underpin the development of optimal learning experiences.
This week we will cover:
The Social Brain and its Superpowers
Nine Things Educators Need to Know About the Brain
