This course explores the impact of cognitive studies on education. What can cognitive science contribute to the understanding of education? Can it help improve education in some, or all situations, and if so, in what way? Which are the constraints, the limits, and the potential pitfalls?

Special attention will be given to ongoing research on learning mechanisms and their neural underpinnings; literacy; numeracy;  learning disabilities and difficulties. Educational interventions —attempts to improve educational performance— will be examined, in particular the use of evidence.

Education can be considered as an exemplary case study for reflecting on the opportunities, limits, conditions and issues of the translation of basic research into practical applications. Education is also an ideal arena for ecological studies in cognitive science, and an opportunity for broadening the view of basic research.

1. From the brain to the class. Contributions, limits, constraints, and conditions of success

2. “Evidence-based education” and “translational research” in education: what does it mean? Why does it matter? Which are the methods? 

3. From theory to application: how to conceive and produce interventions in education, inspired by research in cognitive science?

    Suivi et validation – semestriel hebdomadaire = 6 ECTS
