How Educational Environments Impact Learning

Sep 23, 2016

In this session, expert panelists define the challenges, opportunities, and potential beneficial impacts of research in neuroscience and educational design. This panel discussion addresses the challenge of environmental research in sorting through the many contributing factors to student performance – including economic, social and cultural – in order to isolate the specific impacts of the physical environment. Panelists include leading researchers in education, neuroscience and the design industry who discuss their current, cutting edge research projects and point to future impacts on educational design as neuroscience uncovers the direct impact of environmental stimulus on the brain.
