Neuroscience tops class in education setting

One of the real strengths of Neuroscience is how understanding a new concept translates to immediate benefits in your life, whether that’s in the workplace, in your family, or just within yourself.

This week, one of our Neuroscience of Leadership students was interviewed about the application of neuroscience in the education sector. Jason Hibberd, Deputy Principal – Head of Campus at St Francis Xavier College in Melbourne, is nearing completion of his Advanced Diploma and talked about how neuroscience concepts were being applied with staff and with students. As he says in the video, whether dealing with staff or students, the concepts are the same, it is only the language used that differs.
