Glenn Whitman – Neuroscience in Education

Hello, and welcome to Episode 145 of the Planning Period Podcast, part of the OnPodcastMedia Network. I’m your host, Brad Shreffler.

This week on the show I am joined by Glenn Whitman. Glenn is the next in the line of podcasting blind dates. Glenn is a 25+ year educator out of DC area, and is the director for The Center for Transformative Teaching & Learning. The CTTL focuses on neuroscience and its’ impact on education, bringing those to teachers in ways that matter to them and their practice.

Glen and I talk about his work with neuroscience and why it isn’t more prevalent in education, how neuroscience research should be affecting how we teach, how the inequities across the board in the country impacts the expectations we have for students, the importance of students’ names and making students feel belonging, and how grading practices probably need to change.

So, sit back and enjoy Episode 145 of the Planning Period Podcast, my interview with Glenn Whitman.
