Bertram Scott and Elizabeth Fender Distinguished Lecture:
Introducing Learning with the Adult Brain in Mind
This engaging overview of adult learning and the brain will provide Institute participants insight into the learning process from the brain’s point of view. Participants will be introduced to the six aspects of brain function; these aspects will also serve as the foundation for deeper exploration during the next two days of the Institute.
Kathleen Taylor, Ph.D.
Dr. Taylor and her collaborator, Dr. Annalee Lamoreaux, will facilitate this interactive workshop focusing on the relationship between cognitive neuroscience and adult learning practice—and implications for more effective facilitating, mentoring, teaching, and learning. Dr. Taylor is an internationally recognized writer and researcher who co-authored the award winning, Developing Adult Learners (2000), which describes “best practices” in teaching adults. Dr. Taylor is a professor in the Doctorate in Educational Leadership Program at Saint Mary’s College of California and recently completed a Fulbright Research Fellowship in Athens, Greece.
Annalee Lamoreax, Ph.D.
Dr. Lamoreaux has 40 years experience in adult higher education. In addition to learning and the brain, her interests include adult development, prior learning assessment, and blended online learning. She was invited to present a workshop on prior learning assessment at Western Association of Schools and Colleges’ (WASC) 2013 Academic Resource Conference. Dr. Lamoreaux is a faculty member at Saint Mary’s College of California, where she is Academic Chair of the Bachelor of Arts Program in Leadership and Organizational Studies, a degree completion program for working adults.
