ECN 2009: education, cognition, and neuroscience
The Workshop on “EDUCATION, COGNITION, and NEUROSCIENCE: a cognitive science approach to knowledge acquisition and schooling” will take place in Rovereto, Italy, on October 1st and 2nd 2009, hosted by the Faculty of Cognitive Sciences, at the University of Trento.
The aim of the Workshop is to bring together scholars from various fields of cognitive science to discuss issues dealing with the relationship among mind, brain, and education. A specific objective is to foster a productive exchange between scientists and professionals in the various areas of cognitive science and education.
The workshop differs from larger conferences in so far as there are only 8 speakers (all invited) and there are no concurrent talks.
A poster session is organized in an effort to encourage young researchers and students to present their work. A Round Table with the participation of researchers, teachers, school administrators, and legislators is also planned.
Free attendance, but places are limited. Please register online (see form)
