"The means is dialogue, the end is learning, the purpose is peace." ~ Founder Dr. Jane Vella

Plenary Session - The Biology of Learning with Dr. Jane Vella

At Learning & Change:  The International Dialogue Education Institute 2013

Friday, October 25, 2013  |  9:00 am - 10:30 am

Facilitated by Dialogue Education founder Dr. Jane Vella, with GLP Senior Partner Valerie Uccellani, and GLP Partner Michael Cullilton

Here at Global Learning Partners we’ve been inspired by brain-based research that provides practical insights into how adults learn – and how we can effectively facilitate that learning.

One set of resources we’ve found particularly valuable comes to us from Biologist Dr. James E. Zull. Zull’s research strongly corroborates the fundamental principles and practices of Dialogue Education.
 
When you join us at the International Dialogue Education Institute in October, 2013, you will be part of a provocative and validating plenary session about Zull’s work, designed and led by our very own Dr. Jane Vella!

We highly recommend that you join us in reading his texts.
