Faculty "Translate the Brain" with Andrew Watson

While classes don’t resume until tomorrow, faculty members gathered this morning for a professional development seminar with guest Andrew Watson, founder and president of http://translatethebrain.com. The focus of his presentation was the role and sources of motivation, and the strategies educators can explore to emphasize cognitive growth, manage the brain’s dopamine system, and weed out stereotype threats that can interfere with learning.
