ABOUT THE WEBINAR SERIES
Science of Learning: The Webinar Series – Accelerate Learning with Cognitive Science
When educators augment the great work they do with practices driven by the science of learning, that’s when the magic really takes off.
At Carnegie Learning, our cognitive scientists, engineers, and instructional designers work every day to understand how our brains learn best so that we can optimize and accelerate learning for all students. In our new webinar series, you’ll learn how to apply today’s rapidly-emerging neuroscience advancements to your classroom.
These webinars will help educators in all disciplines as well as administrators better understand how the science of learning is reshaping education.
