A Conversation About the Neuroscience in the Classroom 

This event is now available on request for groups of any size.

60 minutes



If there is one of our Associates that all the other Associates reference regularly in their own work, it is paediatric neurologist Dr Andrew Curran.

And we are delighted to have grabbed an hour of his time next Monday to discuss all things neuroscience, including his understandings around attachment theory, cognitive science, great teaching and learning and what love's got to do with it.

Andrew has been an Associate for nearly 20 years, ever since he stayed behind after his presentation to heckle Ian Gilbert at a headteacher conference in Somerset. Since then Andrew's profound understanding of what makes humans tick has been an essential part of what makes Independent Thinking tick.

The author of The Little Book of Big Stuff About the Brain - and its illustrator too - Andrew has a way of making the neuroscience accessible without dumbing it down and, importantly, helps educators see what changes they can make to ensure their classrooms and relationships are truly brain friendly.

This event, hosted by Ian Gilbert, has been postponed from earlier this year and is sure to prove very popular so do grab a ticket and, as Zoom works on a first-come first-allowed-in basis, make sure you get yourself in the queue on time next week.
