Press Release: Neuroscience in Education Webinar: How May I Serve You?—Connecting Authentically with Students
CHICAGO, IL (November 27, 2012) – Learning Enhancement Corporation (LEC), makers of award-winning BrainWare Safari cognitive development software and sponsors of the Neuroscience in Education webinar series, announced the final event of the 2012 series, scheduled for December 14. The topic is How May I Serve You?—Connecting Authentically with Students.
The upcoming webinar will feature Dr. Lori Desautels, author of How May I ServeYou?, and will explore topics such as the power of the question, the issues with standardized testing, how to help students deal with stress, the concept of individualized learning plans, and other subjects that can help both novice and experienced teachers rise above education as usual.
According to Dr. Marc Meyer, Director of Education for The Hawn Foundation, How May I Serve You? Is a “must read” that “combines theory, pedagogy and personal reflection directed toward helping children grow into inquisitive, resilient, collegial and emotionally sound adults.” In the books, Dr. Desautels tells story after story of ways that teachers have found to connect with students in different and authentic ways to help them overcome despondence, alienation, and feelings of worthlessness, and to help them persist in school and in life.
Dr. Desautels teaches at Marian University in Indianapolis, IN, where she also serves as a university supervisor and instructor for the Indianapolis Teaching Fellows and Teach for America program. She has experience with emotionally handicapped students, as a school counselor and as a private practice counselor. Dr. Desautel’s passion is engaging her student teachers through helping them understand the application of neuroscience in education.
