Learning & the Brain Conference, April 2008

Yesss! My grant application for full funding to attend April’s Learning & the Brain conference in Cambridge, Massachusetts was approved. Twice I have attended pre-conference workshops, but never the entire conference. This conference’s theme is Rewiring the Brain: Using Brain Plasticity to Enhance Learning & Help Overcome Learning Disorders. Given my recent posts about plasticity, you can imagine my excitement upon discovering that one of the opening keynote talks will be given by none other than Norman Doidge, author of The Brain That Changes Itself.

Another reason for my excitement is the Adult Brains – Learning & Training strand that will be running through a large number of the presentations, in addition to six sessions exclusively about this area. I have written innumerable posts about adult learning, and professional development, and am eager to attend as many of the related sessions as possible.

What a nice treat to find out in mid-winter. :-)
