EDED20516 - Neuroleadership and Conceptual Approaches in Educational Neuroscience

General Information

Unit Synopsis

With so much neuroscientific research emerging daily, having robust, practical models based upon contemporary understandings are critical for professionals to inform practice. You will learn about quality models in Educational Neuroscience exemplified by ‘The Icecap model’ in Neuroleadership. From these, you will also learn practical strategies for professionals and leaders that can be used immediately. You will learn about contemporary evidence from cutting edge research using brain-friendly principles and cover topics including brain architecture, neuroplasticity, genes, epigenetics, maintaining a healthy brain, and the science of learning. The conceptual approaches learnt will provide well-researched, holistic perspectives beneficial to educators, professionals and those with whom they interact. You will develop a new paradigm of achievement and wellness based upon neural models that can powerfully inform your practices. As a leader informing your practices using Neuroleadership understandings will impact positively on your learning community including colleagues and any young people.
