Researchers in neuro cognitive sciences at IIIT Hyderabad are conducting a Workshop on Teaching the Learning Brain for school teachers of grades 1 to 8 on 13-14 December 2019 The workshop will introduce aspects of cognition and neuro development on learning. A school teacher faces the challenge of preparing classes that engage same age students with differential learning curves topic-wise, dissimilar conceptual understanding, gaps in skills and disparate external (non-school) factors influencing them. A child’s physical and emotional state also affects the learning curve. Given the complexity, it is important for teachers to understand the brain’s neuro development aspect to design lessons appropriately and build an atmosphere of intellectual safety and trust to address the outliers (over-/under-performers) too.
