About the Conference 2022

Understanding the educational principles of memory and learning were for a long time the holy grail of successful teaching. Recent discoveries in Educational Neuroscience have opened a new understanding of memory – how we learn and what are the guidelines to effective teaching. The Conference will showcase the latest research on Neuroscience and Education and will provide practical guidelines towards the paradigm of brain based learning and wellbeing: the shift from fear based learning to thriving learning to maximise capacity and wellness.

The Institute for Neuroscience and Education proudly presents the 3rd Live and Virtual Australasian Conference for Neuroscience, Learning and Well-being.  We are very pleased to welcome all our Presenters and Attendees to the 2022 Conference. 


The 2022 Conference presentations will focus on key principles of neuroscience to understand the new paradigm of learning and provide practical strategies to apply brain-based learning in various educational settings.


Key aspects that will be addressed are:


  • The Student-Teacher Relationship: Exploring Behavioural and Neuroscience Variables that impact upon Student and Teacher Wellbeing

  • Brain Healthy Education ​

  • Understanding your brain so that you can understand others

  • Supporting Educator Wellbeing

  • The Circle of Capacity: A New Lens for Trauma Sensitive Practice in Schools

  • ‘I won’t and you can’t make me’: Who’s manipulating whom?

  • Understanding problem behaviours in the school context: Harnessing the social brain to create positive learning environments
