•    What if some of the most popular teaching practices are detrimental to learning?
•    Why is the schooling system not creating critical thinkers?
•    Why do so many brilliant first year students fail their study year?

The following dates and venues have been confirmed:

Dr Lieb Liebenberg, commented, “Educators are brain changers. Understanding how the brain works – the organ of learning – is critical to a teacher’s readiness to work with students. Mind-Brain-Education (MBE) is where education, psychology and neuroscience meet, and our aim is to provide a detailed understanding of how we learn and to provide teachers with tools to implement MBE in the classroom, making them more effective.”
