Event description
Neuroplasticity: Adaptable Brains and Unlimited Learning - A professional development webinar for all educators

About this event

About the speaker: Mr Trethewey leads the Business and Economics department at Nord Anglia International School Hong Kong and has taught for eleven years, including three years in the UK and eight years in Hong Kong.

About the webinar: For decades, it has been accepted wisdom that our genetics limits the range of our intellectual abilities. This presumption continues to guide our collective understanding of learning. Many educators and learners believe that their brains are fixed entities, capable of learning certain things and not others. These damaging – and as new science has revealed, false – assumptions affect their confidence and willingness to try new things by limiting their choices and, ultimately, their futures. What if we can all learn anything? What if the possibilities of changing our expertise, developing in new directions, and forming different identities are endless and continue throughout our lives? What if we wake up every day with a changed brain? This webinar will share evidence that our brains – and our lives ­– are highly adaptable. It will explore how incredible outcomes are possible when educators and learners fully embrace this knowledge and change their approach to teaching and learning.

About the organiser of this event: Chatteris Education Foundation and Nord Anglia University have started a collaboration since 2020. We are collaborating on a professional learning initiative that is purposeful, relevant, engaging and meaningful to teachers in the local and international sectors. Our aim is to engage teachers in both sectors to encourage a dialogic, collaborative and professional partnership in which teachers can take a deep dive into their teaching and learning practices by learning from and working in partnership with each other. We join hands together to give support to teachers and all educators, especially during this challenging time.
