Once again, you will have the opportunity to be a part of a revolutionary day in Vancouver. This year six leading experts in the fields of neuroscience and education will meet at the Westin Bayshore Hotel to speak about the incredible potential for positive change that comes when we understand the connections between our brain’s ability to change and grow and educational practice. Join 750 educators, parents, psychologists, counsellors, speech language pathologists, occupational therapists, neuroscientists and those in related professions to hear an amazing line up of world renowned pioneers speak about the connections between education and neuroscience. Be ahead of the field and part of revolutionary conversations with the potential to enhance educational practice as we know it.
We’re back at the Westin Bayshore Hotel this year, and will be treated to wonderful rooms (hotel reservations now available here) and delicious, nutritious food.
