Want More Support? We provide a variety of professional services to support your initiatives to consider and implement Brain-Targeted Teaching®. We look forward to hearing from you about how we might work together to customize these services to meet your needs and requirements for improving teaching and student learning.

Professional Services
  1. Leadership presentations and seminars: Consider these services to introduce Brain-Targeted Teaching® in your school, school district, or teacher preparation program. Participants are introduced to the features and benefits of the model through presentations by Dr. Mariale Hardiman that are supported by multimedia and interaction with the audience. And participants take away strategies for adapting the model with teachers for their classrooms.
     
  2. School-based workshops: Consider these services to support follow-up strategies learned in leadership presentations or seminars. They include a plan of customized training activities and a coach experienced in using the model who works directly with individual teachers, principals, instructional teams, or teacher educators at your school or college/university site.
     
  3. eLearning programs and online coaching: Consider these services to break down the barriers of time and location and the need for repeat performances. Currently, we are planning to deliver elearning prgrams that help teachers learn and apply the knowledge and skills needed to implement Brain-Targeted Teaching® in classrooms. These elearning programs are intended for anyone to access -- anytime, anywhere -- with a computer connected to the Internet. These elearning programs may be supported by an online coach experienced in using the model.

    In recent years, the practice of arts integration—the use of arts activities to teach content in core subject areas—has steadily gained in popularity. However, explanations for why arts integration is useful as a pedagogical tool tend to be muddled. In response, Rinne, Gregory, Yarmolinskaya, and Hardiman (2011) lay out a clear case for the effectiveness of arts integration in their recently published article, “Why Arts Integration Improves Long-Term Retention of Content.” This groundbreaking paper explains how arts integration leverages a variety of factors long known in cognitive psychology to improve memory for information. Armed with the arguments provided by Rinne et al., educators now have a clear rationale for teaching though the arts, which will help ensure that arts integration is not just the next passing fad, but rather is recognized as the powerful instructional tool that it is.

  4. The popularization of neuroscientific ideas about learningposes a real challenge for classroom teachers who want to understand how children learn. In our new article “Neuroethics, Neuroeducation, and Classroom Teaching: Where the Brain Science Meets Pedagogy” we explore unique ethical issues that neuroeducation raises for five different groups of individuals: a) practicing teachers, b) neuroscience researchers whose work could inform education, c) publishers and the popular media, d) educational policy-makers, and e) university-level teacher educators. We suggest ways in which these ethical challenges can be met and provide a model for teacher preparation that will enable teachers themselves to translate findings from the neuro-and cognitive sciences and use legitimate research to inform how they design and deliver effective instruction.
