Hilltop's Institute Evening Discussion Series Presents:
Fact or Fiction?: Mythbusting Misconceptions About Early Learning Research
Wednesday, December 9th
Facilitated by Jane Hu, UW I-LABS
We all know that young children learn incredibly quickly; it turns out that scientists' understanding of early development is growing rapidly as well! Just like children who test and revise theories about the world, scientists have made new findings that have lead to major changes in what we know about early learning and brain development. We'll discuss common beliefs about early learning research, like: Are boy and girl brains really different? and Am I confusing my child by speaking more than one language?
Jane Hu is an outreach specialist at the University of Washington's Institute for Learning and Brain Sciences (I-LABS). Before moving to Seattle, she studied developmental psychology at Yale, and earned a PhD at UC Berkeley, where she studied preschoolers' social learning.
