Education, neuroscience and research, like medicine, are some of the few professions that are in constant flux thanks to improved technology and a better understanding about how humans learn. The best professionals reflect on their practice, identify areas that can be improved upon and use evidence to sustain decisions about interventions in the classroom or research in the field.
Teaching is as much an art as it is a science, and those who dare to teach must never cease to learn.
At Connections, we accompany educators in a personalized review of their development as professionals and guide them towards a perfection of their craft through online, blended and face-to-face courses. We offer learning environments and individualized work that help each person to fulfill their potential as teachers, psychologists, neuroscientists, researchers, and coaches in a logical order and through a personalized plan. We complement the professional development that teachers normally receive in school settings by organizing work so that each professional gains the skill sets he or she needs to become a better teacher or school leader in order to respond to personal goals as well as stakeholder demands.
At Connections, we have developed a range of courses focused on each participant’s domain level. The combination of Mind, Brain, and Education Sciences, Visible Thinking, and information from the OECD publication Pedagogical Knowledge and the Changing Nature of the Teaching Profession (2017), are the starting points for the following professional development tracks that respond to the challeneges of 21st century education in a holistic and transdisciplinary way.
These courses cover topics related to:
• Classrooms for Optimal Learning
• The Brain in the Classroom/Society (Educational Neuroscience, Mind, Brain and Education)
• Modern Tools (Educational Technology)
• Assessment and Feedback
• Education for all (inclusive education)
Our curses are based in:
- Mind, Brain and Education Science
