HGSE applies science to education

Despite the best efforts of scientists, the role of the brain (as opposed to the mind) in the learning process is largely ignored by education systems. Ever since the turn of the millennium, a quiet revolution has been brewing at the Harvard School of Graduate, with courses creating graduate teachers capable of using the latest advances in genetics and brain scans to enhance education – and the student’s response to it. Which is great news – maybe a few decades down the line the same techniques will be used to enhance the apparent ability of dogs to learn in the same way as humans.
