Do You Believe in Neuromyths? The term “neuromyth” refers to a belief about
teaching and learning that is based on a misunderstanding of how the brain works and is not true. Belief in neuromyths is prevalent in the general public (including
undergraduate students), but what about educators? Do we know better?
Inspired by the “Dead Ideas in Teaching and Learning” podcast from The Columbia
University Center for Teaching and Learning (based on an original paper by and
including an episode featuring Augsburg’s Diane Pike), Jennifer Bankers-Fulbright will present a brief overview of neuromyths common among educators at higher education institutions.
Premiering Wednesday at 3:10 pm.
This year, EDTalks will be pre-recorded and have a community “premiere” on Zoom hosted by CTL at 3:10pm on days when there is a faculty meeting. These premieres will end no later than 3:30pm to allow plenty of time to log into the Faculty Zoom meeting early. After the premier, the recording will be posted on the CTL website, along with any resources (if applicable).
