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.
Drs. Lucas and McCaskill along with their lab members will review the history of education for Black deaf children, discuss the implications of this history for the structure and use of Black ASL, and review the principal factors involved in the formation of language variety.
