Main Article Content

Stephen Campbell


An increasing number of education facilities and faculty members are working in a new area of educational research known as educational neuroscience. A key factor for the success and future viability of educational neuroscience concerns training highly qualified personnel who can assist in establishing this new area and move it forward. As an educational researcher currently instituting an educational neuroscience laboratory, this issue is no longer solely an academic interest; it has become a pressing practical matter of vital concern. This discussion paper reports and reflects on the design, approval, implementation, conduct, and reception of a new graduate course, entitled “Educational Neuroscience: Background, Theories, and Methods,” offered for the first time in the 2005-2006 academic year.
