Dreams, Genes, & Machines: Are We Living Science Fiction?
Dr. Mary Helen Immordino-Yang
In conversation with Dr. Achuta Kadambi
July 30, 2020
In ALOUD’s first live program, we’ll explore the science of virtual learning. As schools around the country prepare for an online fall semester, hear from neuroscientist, psychologist, and former teacher Dr. Mary Helen Immordino-Yang about the educational implications for this generation of learners. Focusing on teenagers and their developing brains, Dr. Immordino-Yang will discuss how current events are impacting the ways teenagers think, feel, and process the world.
Dr. Immordino-Yang studies the science of social emotion, self-awareness, and culture and their effects on learning and development. She is a Professor of Education at the USC Rossier School of Education, a Professor of Psychology at the Brain and Creativity Institute, a member of the Neuroscience Graduate Program Faculty at the University of Southern California, and Director of the USC Center for Affective Neuroscience, Development, Learning and Education (CANDLE). She also serves as a scientific adviser to several Los Angeles schools/districts. Please join this conversation with Dr. Immordino-Yang to get schooled on the psychology and neurobiology of virtual learning.
