Pushing the Boundaries of Achievement –
The Latest Evolution of Applied Neuroscience
Join a team of leading neuroscientists and education specialists for an interactive, online series that reveals how to understand and extract the hidden potential of everyone, ways to recognize and develop their often hidden strengths, and how to give everyone the tools to gain that competitive edge in their lives and beyond. Each session will be led by field experts and will explore the following topics: understanding how to engage and harness the attention of all learners, the use of neurotechnology in learning, the importance of neuroplasticity in relation to learner success, and the latest best practices for improving outcomes.

The weekly discussions aim to provide educators, performance coaches, executives, parents and researchers with some of the latest thought leadership and developments in neuroscience for learning and performance.
