As a professional educator, you need to understand the underlying concepts and principles of contemporary Educational Neuroscience and the evidence-based research that informs it. Drawing upon the works of world-renowned researchers and other experts in the field, you will develop insights on how to use contemporary evidence-based knowledge to enhance your professional practice. In this unit, you will learn how to evaluate neuroscientific information and use it in an integrated and ethical manner. You will learn about selecting, analysing, adapting and applying Educational Neuroscience research immediately to your professional practice by using well-established criteria to judge the quality and limitations of conceptual and empirical studies. You will be able to communicate in an informed way to a range of audiences about research in Educational Neuroscience. This may lead you to later doing your own practitioner-based research using robust approaches from Educational Neuroscience that you will study in this unit.
