SAIS Lunch & Learn

Our “Lunch and Learn” presentations highlight topics and educational leaders who share their expertise in an informal, personal setting. Live and virtual attendees listen to our speaker followed by a question and answer session. For the live audience, the formal presentation is followed by a working lunch in which participants engage in discussions around the topic. Each “Lunch and Learn” offers knowledge and insight into important educational issues and also presents an excellent opportunity to network with professionals who share similar interests.




The 2012-13 Lunch & Learn season is officially over. Check out the videos below to see what topics we've covered so far and check back soon for updates on the next slate of sessions!

January 25, 2013: Neuroscience, Learning Differences, and the students you might be missing out on

Speaker: Allen Broyles, Howard School
Allen Broyles will lead us through research and describe why the "sit still" model of classrooms is working against the brain's evolution. There are really bright kids that mainstream schools often don't support, but most colleges do - i.e. students that our mainstream schools might consider differently in the admissions process.
