Reimagining Education: A View from the Science of Learning
Presented by Dr. Kathy Hirsh-Pasek, Prof. of Psychology at Temple University, Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution
Thursday, May 6th at 1:00 pm.

Lecture: How do we define success in school? What skills must graduates have for success in life and in the workplace? In some ways, the global pandemic brought these questions to the foreground. Dr. Hirsh-Pasek argues against the narrow focus on content outcomes. Using translational data from early education, she suggests that "playful" experiential learning in and out of school might allow us to reimagine education in our time.
Kathy Hirsh-Pasek was declared a “scientific entrepreneur” by the American Association of Psychology. Her Einstein Never Used Flashcards won the Book for a Better Life Award in 2003 with her Becoming Brilliant (2016) reaching the NYTimes Best Sellers List in education.
