Brief description (The Science of Learning Research Centre) The brain's most fundamental characteristic is its ability to learn from experience, and effectively targeting its physiology to improve the delivery of learning is a key area of international research endeavour. By discovering how the brain learns most efficiently, we will have the ability to enhance education in a variety of settings. The proposed Science of Learning Research Centre will foster strategic new collaborations between educators, neuroscientists, and cognitive psychologists throughout Australia. The needs of teachers in the classroom will be used to drive collaborative discovery, with the expertise of neuroscientists and psychologists being harnessed to design effective and practical learning techniques and assessment tools.
