What is the Science of Learning
Johns Hopkins University Special broadcast about the science of learning.
The new Science of Learning Institute at The Johns Hopkins University unites neuroscientists, cognitive scientists, geneticists, computer scientists, and education experts. The Institute will accelerate science-to-practice translation along the continuum of learning, from basic research in molecules and genes to the creation of effective public school policy. No university has ever focused on learning with an initiative so bold and promising. Please help us achieve the remarkable potential of the Johns Hopkins Science of Learning Institute.
