"From Neuroscience to Neuroeducation" by Punahou Middle School's Principal Mike Walker.
Walker is currently in his fourteenth year at Punahou as the K-8 Principal. He was born in Australia and raised in Mexico City. He graduated from a boarding school in Connecticut, graduated from the Honors College at W. Michigan University, received his MEd in Educational Administration from the University of South Carolina, and is currently enrolled in the EdD program at UH Manoa. He taught at the American School Foundation in Mexico City, was Middle School Head at Hammond School in Columbia, S.C., then at University School of Nashville, Vanderbilt's lab school. He has two children, both in college. His wife, Wendy, teaches in the Academy at Punahou.
Walker will be introducing how Punahou has used neurological research as a foundation for strategic and curricular planning. He will briefly overview basic neurological myths/facts and focus on memory. Building from the basic neuron, the discussion will extend to the neurology of memory, perception, and literacy. In addition, Walker will raise questions about the neurology of decision making, and implications this new body of research might have for legal education.
Faculty, staff, students, and campus colleagues -- of all kinds -- are welcome to attend! Seating is limited.
