This Forum, in partnership with LA’s BEST, will consist of a presentation by Dr. Immordino-Yang and a facilitated discussion of attendees regarding implications for afterschool program leaders and their work with young people.
In the past, we have been told that we need to separate learning from emotion. Dr. Immordino-Yang’s research contradicts this notion by stressing the importance of emotion in learning, memory, meaning- making and engagement.
Mary Helen Immordino-Yang is a Professor of Education, Psychology and Neuroscience at the University of Southern California, and former urban public junior high-school science teacher.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Out-of-school time and educational leaders and practitioners, funders, and policymakers.
