This workshop is co-sponsored by the International Mind, Brain and Education Society (IMBES), NYU’s Faculty of Arts and Science, and Steinhardt School of Culture, Education and Human Development.

Why was this workshop planned on a federal holiday?!? As a deliberate effort to include classroom teachers as experts in our RPP Collaboratory, we have organized this workshop on a day when all teachers are off of school. This allows teachers to fully participate without having to seek approval from their administration.

The collaboratory is organized by Vanessa Rodriguez, Ed.D. (author of  The Teaching Brain) and Ido Davidesco, Ph.D.
