    Dr Lara Boyd - The Learning Brain - Parent Education Evening

    Apr 11, 2018

    It’s my pleasure to announce that Secord’s Annex, Queen Victoria Annex will be hosting Dr. Lara Boyd on Wednesday, April 18th from 7-8:30pm.   She will be speaking about: “The Learning Brain” and provide an overview of brain plasticity in children and how education affects our brains. 

    Dr. Boyd is Neuroscientist and Physical Therapist who runs a research lab at UBC.  Her work focuses on the questions of what limits and what facilitates neuroplasticity - or, in other words, the ability of our brain to change throughout our lifetime.  This is intricately linked to how we (and our children) both learn and continue to adapt.

    She is a highly engaging speaker and presented at TEDx Vancouver.  Here’s the link to that talk:


    I encourage you to mark this evening in your calendars as I think it will be well worth your time.  If there are non-QVA parents that you feel may be interested, please feel free to pass this along.
