If you’ve subscribed to our newsletter you’ve likely already read about this, but we’d like to make another plug for the GREAT looking knowledge eXchange, Art, Science and the Brain: New Models of Learning for the 21st Century. If you’re interested in the possibilities that exist in education you’ll want to reserve this October 31-November 1 to attend.

Co-presented by ArtsSmarts & Social Innovation Generation at the MaRS Discovery District (SiG@MaRS), it will be devoted to exploring the nature of inquiry-based learning and its effect on our brains. Attendees will be called upon to take part in all kinds of interactive seminars that put into practice the inquiry-based learning techniques that are being discussed.

The price of admission also includes entry to a great evening cocktail event featuring a presentation and book-signing by Dr. Daniel Levitin (James McGill Professor of psychology, music & Computer science, McGill University; Author, This is Your Brain on Music and The World in Six Songs), and a live performance of Surface Tension by Eve Egoyan and David Rokeby.

  • Dr. Mariale Hardiman (Assistant Dean, Urban Schools Partnership; Chair, Department of Interdisciplinary Studies in Education, Johns Hopkins University School of Education)
