Brain-Based Learning in the Garden of Good and Evil II

The DeSoto Hilton Hotel, Savannah, Georgia February 21-23, 2001

Call For Papers!! Call For Papers!!

The Teacher's Workshop winter conference Brain-Based Learning in the Garden of Good and Evil II will be held February 21-23, 2001 at the DeSoto Hilton Hotel in historic Savannah. This call for papers is an invitation for you to submit a proposal for presentation on one of a variety of possible topics relating to brain-friendly teaching and learning.

The principal audience at this conference will be teachers. Topics appropriate for presentation involve any model program or instructional strategy which helps to align teaching practice with recent insights into how the brain learns. As examples, the topics presented in previous conferences have included The Role of Emotions in Learning, Building Memory and Meaning for Retention, Cognitive Enrichment, Pros and Cons Concerning the Mozart Effect, and Enriched Brain-Friendly Classrooms. (Commercial presenters: your session must cover your topic broadly and not merely present the merits of your product or service.)

We are tentatively offering two formats for your presentation: a one-hour presentation with audience participation, or a "Table Top" presentation, which is an informal poster-session type of presentation that is located in a participant flow-thru traffic area. In your session description, please indicate which format you prefer; however, your preference cannot be guaranteed.

Print out this form, complete it and mail or fax in today, along with a 400 word description of your proposed session. All proposals will be peer reviewed, and the most appropriate will be selected for inclusion in the program. Presenters will receive a $50 registration discount!
