Research reveals growing evidence of the impact of cognitive science and the science of child and adolescent development on student learning. Yet, preparation programs do not typically provide the tools, strategies, and practice opportunities in schools, and need to be re-conceptualized and redesigned, according to recent reports. A panel representing child psychiatrists, education deans, school-based practitioners, and state education officials, will briefly discuss the issue and present solutions.
Takeaway: Hear a panel discuss how the latest research in cognitive science and child development can improve student learning and how preparation programs can incorporate that research to produce more effective candidates.
