Both reflective teaching and brain-based learning will be the focus of the Los Alamos National Laboratory Foundation’s 16th Annual Conference on Education Oct. 11, 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m., at Buffalo Thunder Resort and Conference Center.

Teachers, principals and administrators will have an opportunity to hear international educational consultant Dr. Debra Pickering, a senior scholar at Marzano Research Laboratory, speak on “Reflective Teaching” to help them examine what they do in the classroom and analyze what works. Her talks have been described as animated, informative and practical. She has been a classroom teacher and district administrator.

She coauthored with Dr. Robert J. Marzano educational books and manuals, including Dimensions of Learning, Classroom Instruction That Works, Classroom Management That Works and Building Academic Vocabulary. She is also a contributor to On Excellence in Teaching.

Dr. Pickering has a master's degree in school administration and a Ph.D. in curriculum and instruction, with an emphasis in cognitive psychology.

Dr. Ken Wesson, who blogs under the name “ScienceMaster,” will address “Brain-based Learning.”
