The impact of Neuroscience on our practice

Presented by: Nathan Wallis, Neuroscience Educator

Don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity to listen to Nathan Wallis speak on brain development research and ECE best teaching practice. Nathan is a lively and engaging speaker who uses humour and plain language to make this complex topic come to life.  Sharing his expertise on child development, Nathan delivers easy to understand professional development training reflecting the latest neuroscience discoveries and their practical implications for everyday practice.

This presentation will focus on a wider understanding of child development, and give you the opportunity to think about how this will strengthen assessment, planning and evaluation. This research will support stronger practice; and will support teaching in action shown through internal evaluation and curriculum documentation.

Nathan’s presentations explore how the brain works and how neuroscience can better inform our day-to-day interactions with children and young people. Information about the human brain (and how it grows to reach full potential) has exploded into our awareness over the past twenty years. Advances in scanning technologies have allowed us to understand the workings of the brain like never before, showing us the huge significance of the early years and the critical role this period plays in defining later outcomes. Nathan presents the practical implications of this research with a focus on how to use this knowledge to create better outcomes for children.
