23 MAY 2018 – EMPEROR’S PALACE, JOHANNESBURG – The first ever seminar in Africa on Mind-Brain-Education (MBE) commences today, with Via Afrika as the silver sponsor,
hosted by ITSI, the pioneering e-learning provider which enhances and simplifies the teaching and learning experience for both students and educators.
The two-day seminar, taking place 23 – 24 May 2018 at Emperor’s Palace in Johannesburg, is in the form of a hands-on workshop facilitated by the internationally acclaimed co-authors of “Neuroteach: Brain science and the future of education”, Glenn Whitman and Dr. Ian Kelleher, and is targeted at teachers and lecturers from primary, secondary and tertiary educational institutions. The seminar will focus on how educators are brain changers and will aim to explore how an understanding of the brain – the organ of learning – is critical to a teacher’s readiness to work with students.
Dr Lieb Liebenberg, CEO at ITSI commented, “Does using your brain still have a purpose in a technology-driven world? Lecturers, teachers and administrators want to know how the latest Brain-Science is changing the face of teaching. The practical nature of the event will ensure that they walk away with the necessary skills to effectively facilitate and implement Mind-Brain-Education. Post this workshop, educators will be able to implement MBE tools within their own teaching environments and will be able to truly enhance their learner’s ability to learn, understand and remember.”
ITSI’s MBE Seminar is endorsed by SACE and teachers attending the event will receive 15 CPTD points.
