Facilitating Learning and Well-Being: Lessons from Neuroscience
How can we promote learning and well-being?
A major goal of teachers is to help shape the behavior and thought of students. We want to influence the actions of children in positive ways. Dr Sharot shares how we influence those around us, and how understanding the brain can help us change minds for the better.
Which factors – according to empirical findings – have the largest impact on people’s behavior, and why? Dr Sharot reveals the critical role of emotion and anticipation, the power of curiosity and the importance of giving others a sense of agency. Relying on the latest research in neuroscience, behavioral economics, and psychology, she will provide insight into how to facilitate both learning and well-being.
A live Q&A with Dr Sharot will follow her keynote.
