NSW Education Standards Authority Completing V1_The Neuroscience of Imagination will contribute 2 hours of NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) Registered PD addressing 6.2.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.

ABOUT THIS COURSE

This course shows how the visual system works in conjunction with imagination and the formation of new ideas. It looks at relevant networks in the brain responsible for both process driven thought but also new connections in the brain that aid creativity.

This course provides new information and understanding to create a foundation of neuroscientific explanations of the faculty of imagination. This understanding both develops the potential of the teacher and also creative outcomes for students.

CURRICULUM

  • Imagination as a skill for the future
    Visual narrative on the future of digital/visual technology such as VR, AI, Data Visualisation and 3D Printing and how to prepare thinking in order to embrace new skills.
  • The imagination network in the brain
    Where the imagination is located in the brain. How it works and what is required to allow for new ideas and insights to occur.
  • The science of learning how to see
    How we measure, monitor and encourage seeing to develop critical thinking and imagination.
  • Visualisation
    The science behind physiological processes that align seeing (the minds eye) with imagining.
  • How visual processes work to strengthen the capacity to ideate
    The neuroscience behind activating the imagination network. Practice targeted to build capacity in professional staff and schools; making room for visual processes in order to develop more imaginative capabilities.
