FAB-4 Annual Brain Days in Nagoya

fab-4.jpgThe FAB-4 Annual Brain Days, a NeuroELT conference, is coming up on July 6-7 at Nanzan University in Nagoya. The conference explores how to use the connection between neuroscience and teaching in the English language classroom. Joseph Shaules of the Japan Intercultural Institute will join the conference for the first time with a plenary session called "Banana, Monkey, Panda: Cultural Neuroscience and Intercultural Education." The session asks which two of the three – banana, monkey, and panda – you would group together. Surprisingly, your response involves both your culture and your brain. For a teaser of Joseph’s talk, check out his video.

Other plenaries will be given by conference founders Robert Murphy (Practical NeuroEFL Pedagogy), and Marc Helgesen (DIY NeuroELT: Making Your Textbook More Brain Friendly).

There will also be over 35 additional presentations, workshops, pecha kuchas, and poster sessions by many presenters including Brian Cullen, Kim Horne, Lesley Ito, Nagisa Kikuchi, and Joshua Meyerson. Curtis Kelly, another one of the conference founders will be giving a presentation (via Skype). See the FAB-4 website for a full schedule and early bird discount preregistration, available until June 30.
