The Inaugural Australasian Conference for Neuroscience, Learning and Well-being

25 & 26 March 2019

Melbourne, Australia

About the Conference


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 Conference in a Nutshell

International and National Presenters in Applied Educational Neuroscience will provide an overview of the brain and learning.


Topics that will be presented are:


  • The Neuroscience of learning and deep learning.

  • Systems of learning in the brain – fear-based learning and thriving learning.

  • Trauma, the brain and education – becoming a brain-based trauma-informed educator/school.

  • The brain, learning and wellness – a neuroscientific whole-school tool to enhance wellness and learning (demonstrations from leading schools).

  • Interactive learning with take home guidelines.
