PEN Distinguished Lecture Series

The PEN Distinguished Lecture Series in Educational Neuroscience was created in association with the Foundations Proseminar course for graduate students in the Ph.D. in Educational Neuroscience (PEN) program. Since its inception, the series has grown!

The lecture series focuses on the intersection of the Science of Learning (learning across the lifespan) and Educational Neuroscience (learning across early life). Scientists and researchers who are pioneers in the fields of Cognitive-Educational Neuroscience, Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience, and Child Development come to Gallaudet University's campus to talk about their research.

All lectures are open to the public and are video recorded for online distribution.

Our digital world is transforming our physical architecture and how we inhabit, think, and behave within it. The seamless integration of emerging media, interactive content, cinematic storytelling, performance and architecture can engage culture in new conversations. These smart, artful, meaningful, useful and playful spaces that could potentially change the way we think and behave. Innovations in design, culture and technology empower us to explore the spaces in between words, things, objects and thoughts.

This is a lecture that wonders about the emerging field of interactive architecture, what it is and what it could be.
