This course provides an introduction to the emerging, interdisciplinary field of mind, brain, and education (MBE). Interest in the brain is a hot topic in educational circles and future teachers should be aware of the neuromyths and actual science. Topics include a conceptual introduction to the brain, including a study of neurons, how the brain learns, memory, brain plasticity, and how to teach students about the brain. Theories of intelligence and mindset will also be reviewed.
