How Neuroscience Can Help Us Reimagine Learning About the Holocaust

In this keynote from March 28, 2023, in recognition of the Mickey Shapiro Endowed Chair in Holocaust Education Research at the University of Southern California, distinguished scholar Mary Helen Immordino-Yang suggests that the foundation of the future of education is rooted in story – stories that help us care. Through a poetic transdisciplinary approach combining neuroscience, pedagogical theory and practice, developmental science, and a deep understanding of the post-Covid educational context, Mary Helen Immordino-Yang  helps us re-imagine education generally and Holocaust education specifically. Joined by leading experts in educational research, policy and practice, this public program demonstrates how an interdisciplinary approach to educational transformation rooted in research  can advance educational innovation and change, academic achievement and civic flourishing.

The event was moderated by Dr. Ishwar K. Puri at the global headquarters of USC Shoah Foundation, Los Angeles, California.
