OECD’s Centre for Educational Research and Innovation (CERI) – Brain and Learning | Learning Sciences and Brain Research project website
The culmination of the Brain and Learning project is the publication “Understanding the Brain: The Birth of a New Learning Science” This enlightening publication is essential reading for all those involved in education as parents, teachers, researchers, policy makers and learners. It may confirm and illuminate what they already know from experience, but there will be surprises too. One of the aims of Understanding the Brain is to encourage dialogue between educators and neuroscientists about what each can contribute to the understanding of how we learn. An international and trans-disciplinary effort will shed new light on recurring problems in education and play a decisive role in contributing to resolving them.
About The Centre for Educational Research and Innovation (CERI): The Centre does extensive research work which covers learning at all ages, from birth to old age. It goes beyond the formal education system. While having a particular concern with emerging trends and issues, CERI reflects on the futures of schools and universities. CERI often has a longer timeframe than most work, typically aiming to set an agenda for the future, with a goal to ensure that the work is thoroughly integrated with empirical analysis and innovation awareness. Specific emphasis is put on accumulating statistical evidence to the value of its research work.
