Brief description

Neuroscience has developed a deeper insight in understanding the mechanisms of human brain functioning, and in particular, synaptic plasticity, thanks to technology (such as nuclear magnetic resonance and confocal microscopes).

The better knowledge of our different memory types in cognitive science, its recent results in testing different learning methods, in describing learner profiles and corresponding learning strategies, as well as stereotype treats (in addition to other stresses) and their potential consequences on test performances will be presented and discussed with the attendees through an interactive presentation.

  • The pedagogical visual material will be designed to contain a minimum of English vocabulary, to be either held by a presenter in any languages spoken in the CIVIS alliance or understood by most attendees.
  • The interactive tools used in the breakout rooms will be either Mural, Jamboard, Padlet or Excalidraw.
  • The attendees could be anyone interested to make a link between recent scientific results in cognitive science and “good practices” as a teacher (and consequently as a learner/student).
