Middlesex University Speaker Series: Best Practices in Education

Dubai Cares Pavilion, Expo 2020

We are proud to be partnering with Dubai Cares to host an exclusive speaker series throughout January and March 2022 that offers free education and training to teachers, educators and parents from across the UAE in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)!

As educators, we believe that access to quality, world-class education is how we can empower the next generation to change the world for the better.

Taking place in the Dubai Cares Pavilion at Expo 2020 and honouring their vital mission, this interactive series will address different SDGs and feature speakers from across a range of academic disciplines at Middlesex University Dubai, including our MA Education faculty. Sessions will provide teachers and parents with actionable tools and knowledge that they can use to develop an even more inclusive classroom.

The diverse and inspirational programme will particularly focus on how attendees can celebrate and cultivate the talents in all children; instil a love of learning in each student; and equip our future leaders to develop global citizenship values such as empathy, tolerance and cultural sensitivity.

Due to social distancing regulations at the Dubai Cares Pavilion, we can only offer 30 in-person places per session. Attendees receive free Expo 2020 entry on the day of their chosen session!

Brain Targeted Teaching

Alison Burrows, Head of Department of Education and Early Childhood Studies, Middlesex University Dubai and Doctoral Candidate & Research Fellow, Johns Hopkins University

Time: 11am

SDG: 4.4 and 4.C

The emerging field of neuro-education focuses on how students actually learn, not what they learn based on narrow achievement goals. The Brain Targeted Teaching Model provides teachers with valuable knowledge from the neuro and cognitive sciences in a form that can be readily understood and applied in classroom practice. This session will show educators and education leaders how to apply relevant research to classroom settings through a proven pedagogical framework. 

This framework consists of six brain-targeted components: Establishing the emotional environment for learning; creating the physical learning environment; designing the learning experience; teaching for mastery; creativity and innovation in education; and evaluating learning.

This session is aimed at Pre-K through University educators and administrators.
