Brain and Behavior Institute 2005

Welcome to the home page of the Brain and Behavior Institute at Bryn Mawr College for the year 2005. This Institute (like others in the series) is designed to bring together college faculty and K-12 teachers to discuss current understandings of brain function in relation to behavior ... and the implications of those understandings for classroom teaching and education generally. The Institute, which runs from 11 July to 22 July, is supported by a grant to Bryn Mawr College from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and by the College's Center for Science in Society and the Bryn Mawr/Haverford K-16 Collaborations in Science and Mathematics Education.

The Brain - is wider than the Sky -
For - put them side by side -
The one the other will contain
With ease - and You - beside. Emily Dickinson (1830-1886)
For the first time in human history, it is becoming possible to achieve optimal educational environments for all human beings. The web can provide the needed richness, interactivity, and room to explore in a cooperative and collaborative mode. - Serendip Credo on Education and Technology
