IOE’s Science of Learning and Assessment Master’s program and the HSE University Neuropsy Lab cordially invite you to an open lecture, ‘How We Train Professionals Who Can Facilitate Lifelong Learning’ by Dr. Marie Arsalidou, Head of the HSE University Neuropsy Lab and Co-Director of the Science of Learning and Assessment (SOLA) Master’s at IOE.

 Friday, June 18, 2021 at 18:00 Moscow time

To participate, please register at: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSf8n8BUO19ALNPW8nVHKRwsXCjSj8hirZ3DQkBeOjZLLp7AgQ/viewform?usp=sf_link.


About the Lecture

The human brain is complex and infinitely amazing.

Even though we know as much about the brain now as at no other point in history, there are still a great number of questions that are yet to be answered. The brain changes with learning and neuroscience provides empowering perspectives on the potential of the developing brain. Studies show that people can even learn how to echo-locate. Can humans in fact learn anything?

This presentation will spotlight some reinvigorating knowledge about cognition, brain development, and the capacity for learning through the lifespan. It will also share guidance on how those interested can participate in research conducted at the intersection of cognitive science and education at the HSE University Moscow.

The working language is English.

About the Presenter

Dr. Marie Arsalidou

 

Marie obtained her PhD at York University and completed a post-doctoral research fellowship at the Diagnostic Imaging Department at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, Canada. Her research focuses on understanding behavioral and brain foundations of the development of higher order cognitive abilities. Currently she is Head of the Laboratory of Neurobiological Foundations of Cognitive Development (Neuropsy Lab) at the HSE University, and Co-Director of the Science of Learning and Assessment (SOLA) Master’s at IOE.

About the SOLA Master’s program

The Science of Learning and Assessment (SOLA) Master’s program at IOE provides advanced theoretical and research insights into processes of learning and development across the lifespan. Students gain strong competence in evidence-based assessment strategies and instruments, and explore in depth one or more topics in psychology, biology, psychometrics, and education using cutting-edge neuroscientific methods such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), electroencephalography (EEG), and eye-tracking. All instruction is in English.
