If you teach second language learners or a foreign language course and are looking for more effective, neuroscience-based strategies, this workshop is for you.
If a bilingual brain is a better brain (and it is!), then why are your language learners struggling? During this workshop, participants learn how the brain processes first and second languages and how the effort to become bilingual presents challenges until fluency is obtained. Learn the science of language learning and acquire instructional strategies based on that science that will energize your teaching and enhance your students’ learning.
This workshop covers the following topics:

“Powerful!” “Engaging!” “Innovative!” and “Life Changing!” are just a few ways audiences describe presentations by Dr. Janet Zadina. Dr. Zadina is an internationally renowned speaker, consultant, author, and former high school and community college teacher, known for her extraordinary ability to inform, educate, and empower audiences with brain research. Dr. Zadina has made such an impact on the academic community that the Society for Neuroscience honored her with the prestigious 2011 Science Educator Award. This recognition solidified her reputation as a significant contributor to public education and the field of educational neuroscience. Through her transformative, powerful, and entertaining workshops, Dr. Zadina is changing the way teachers, students, and even business professionals understand and use the brain.
Dr. Zadina’s determination to tear down brain myths and build up lives was born from her personal experiences working with dyslexic students. When she learned that a new “window” into the brain was possible with neuroimaging, she knew she had to go back to school and study neuroscience. She earned a Ph.D. in Education while conducting MRI research on neurodevelopmental language disorders at Tulane Medical School. She then completed a postdoctoral fellowship in cognitive neuroscience.
Dr. Zadina bridges the fields of education and neuroscience in her visionary work and the magic of her presentations. Her years of research, writing, and teaching enable her to educate others with science and strategies to transform education. As the founder and CEO of Brain Research and Instruction, she teaches and models best practices in educational neuroscience when presenting keynote speeches and workshops worldwide. She has been honored as a Distinguished Fellow in the Council of Learning Assistance and Developmental Education Associations, among other honors. She is the author of textbooks as well as professional development books, including Multiple Pathways to the Student Brain. She is a co-founder of the Butterfly Project, a pro-bono initiative designed to help educators who have experienced natural disasters.
