An educational neuroscientist who sees her research through the eyes of a teacher!
Janet N. Zadina, Ph.D. is an experienced high school and community college instructor and reading specialist now engaged in neuroscience research. She received her doctorate in the College of Education at the University of New Orleans, conducting her award-winning dissertation research on the neuroanatomy of dyslexia through collaboration with Tulane University School of Medicine. She continued her postdoctoral education with a Fellowship in Cognitive Neuroscience in the Department of Psychiatry and Neurology at Tulane University School of Medicine where she researched neuroanatomical risk factors for developmental language disorders through MRI brain scans. She is currently an Assistant Professor in Cognitive Neuroscience in the Department of Psychiatry and Neurology at Tulane and in Psychology at the University of South Florida engaged in neuroscience research. Dr. Zadina is co-author of Writing Now, a college developmental composition textbook. She has presented keynotes and workshops on brain research and instruction internationally.
Dr. Zís lively presentations, peppered with humor, music, and audience participation, engage and empower educators by providing them with a basic understanding of learning processes in the brain. Through Power Point illustrations, a simulation, and interactions, this exciting new information is presented in an understandable and entertaining style. Attendees will look inside the brain, acquire a new understanding of the nature of learning, discover principles for instruction based on brain research, and acquire strategies for addressing learning differences in the classroom. Participants leave Dr. Zís sessions energized and excited about trying these new approaches!
June 19, 2013: The Multiple Pathways Model - Using Brain Research to Orchestrate Learning will be held from 9:00am - 4:00pm at Lone Star College-University Park, 20515 State Highway 249, West Dining Room, Houston, TX 77070. In this exciting presentation, infused with real brain images and interactive experiences, attendees will go beyond visual, auditory, and kinesthetic pathways and learn about additional pathways strongly involved in learning. Discover how to get more impact and reach diverse learners. Acquire strategies that tap into powerful brain circuits. Dr. Zadina's Book, Six Weeks to a Brain-Compatible Classroom - A Workbook for Educators, will be given to each participant at this workshop. For more information, please email CoastalCF@lonestar.edu.
