Learning-brain-practice: exploring transdisciplinary studies in preschool

Room G39, School of Education (Building R19)
Monday 11 June 2018 (11:00-12:00)

Karen Henry

You are warmly invited to the Biosocial Research Network Seminar with Professor Hillevi Lenz Taguchi, Department of Child and Youth Studies, Stockholm University.

Professor Hillevi Lenz Taguchi will talk about her current research examining, comparing and testing how socio-emotional learning practices and computer program-oriented practices in Swedish preschools affect children’s attention, social understanding, language and communication skills. This ongoing interdisciplinary project is using well-tried intervention methodologies from pedagogy, language skill estimations from linguistics, as well as cortical measurements from cognitive neuroscience. 

Hillevi Lenz Taguchi has experience of trans- and interdisciplinary research specifically focusing feminist theories and continental philosophy in her studies of higher education, teacher education and early childhood practices. She is much involved with the theoretical development and transgressive methodologies as part of the Posthumanist, New Materialist and Post Qualitative turns.
