  • Emotions and Learning: how can we better understand the connection between cognition and emotions to enhance learning?
  • Beyond Growth Mindset: how can we get students to buy into and be co-curators of their learning?
  • Feedback and Assessment: how can we assess for deep learning?
  • Executive Functioning: how can we help students become self-regulated learners?
