In this highly interactive seminar participants will explore emerging research in neuroscience and how it affects decision-making in higher education. Brain imaging and decision-making studies will be used to explain how we determine intelligence, competence, threat and veracity in the classroom. The seminar will pinpoint the areas where discretion is utilized by faculty and staff and where decisions can be affected by unconscious thoughts. The course will review how brain reactions and unconscious processes can affect analysis, behavior and conclusions. It will focus on fairness guided by science.
"Ms. Papillon is one of the nation's foremost experts on the crucial intersection of neuroscience, behavior, and social justice. Papillon's purpose in this presentation is to shed light on where biases develop in the brain, allowing us as a community to be aware of when and why we act with empathy vs. apathy, or cruelty vs. care. Don't miss this tremendous opportunity to see a critical contemporary thinker at work."
