Talk: What does 3.5 billion years of brain evolution mean for the classroom?

Paul Howard-Jones, Professor of Neuroscience at the University of Bristol, and from C4’s ‘Secret Life of..’ series and Radio 4’s ‘The Educators’.

Travel from the dawn of life itself to the present day to discover how we have evolved a brain based on the principle of turning information from our senses into action. Stopping along the way to visit some distant (and not so distant) relatives, we discover if, and how, these creatures learn – and what this has to do with how we learn today. Hear about the populations of learners that live in your stomach, why jellyfish are not the best students and why we may have more in common with marmosets than chimpanzees. Finally, we find out how the evolution and biology of the human brain is providing insight into the classroom and helping inform educational thinking, research and practice.


For more information call our Education Bookings Team on 0117 9157777 between 8:30am and 5:30pm

We look forward to seeing you.
