Chef's Surprise - Pursuing Cutting-Edge Trends in Teaching and Learning

Publication Date



Educational neuroscience, also called Mind, Brain, and Education, is an emerging discipline that brings together research in neuroscience, psychology and education. Research from this emerging field can lead educators to effective brain-based teaching strategies. These strategies can be particularly valuable in our information literacy classrooms and help us create engaging and active interactions with our students.

This presentation will discuss these brain-based teaching strategies and how to use them in an information literacy classroom. Assignments that employed these strategies will be shared. Finally, students’ responses to learning in this way will be presented.
