The ESRC funded Educated Brain seminar series comprised interdisciplinary seminars/workshops designed to share recent findings from neuroscience that are important for education and engage policy-makers with the emerging field of educational neuroscience in ways that are effective and meaningful.
This seminar series brought together a variety of stakeholders, including researchers in educational/cognitive neuroscience, teachers and policy-makers to understand theoretical issues as well as policy and practice implications.
This series is unique in that it is supported and coordinated by three University of Cambridge Interdisciplinary Research Centres and Strategic Research Initiatives: Cambridge Neuroscience, Cambridge Public Policy and Cambridge Language Sciences.
