Effectively translating neuroscience for teaching practice: opportunities and next steps took place in October 2017 and was the third in a series of ESRC-funded research seminars on The Educated Brain. The series was unique in that it was supported and coordinated by three University of Cambridge Interdisciplinary Centres and Strategic Research Initiatives (Cambridge Neuroscience, Cambridge Public Policy and Cambridge Language Sciences). The first seminar covered Infancy and Early Childhood while the second covered Late Childhood and Adolescence. This was the final event in the Educated Brain series, where education, psychology and neuroscience researchers come together with teachers and practitioners to better understand how we learn, and how we can promote learning across the lifespan through policy and practice. This event was supported by the ESRC and Learnus.
