Schlosser to Represent Fisher at Middle States Meeting
Dr. Linda Schlosser, Associate Professor in the St. John Fisher College Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. School of Education, will be representing the Middle States Region for the 2nd year as a member of the College Board’s National Advisory Committee for the professional development of Advanced Placement (AP) teachers on May 3.
Schlosser has been a long-term consultant with the College Board in areas of curriculum and teacher professional development, and is the Director of the AP Summer Institute at the College. This year, the institute will host teachers from across the United States and international schools in eight subject areas from June 25-29.
Following the Middle States meeting, Schlosser will participate as an invited presider and discussant at the annual Learning and the Brain Conference, which takes place May 4-6 in Washington, D.C. Learning and the Brain brings neuroscientists and educators together to explore new research on the brain and learning, and its implications for education.
The conference, co-sponsored by a consortium of institutions such as Harvard, the University of Chicago, the University of California at Santa Barbara, and the Dana Foundation, will focus on how technology transforms brains, teaching, and attention. The session will involve participants in a discussion of Media Minds: Brain Training and Video Games on Saturday, May 5.
