Our keynote speaker is G.

He specializes in human learning and speaks around the world, translating the complex findings from the cognitive, social, behavioral, and educational neurosciences for use in all areas of endeavor.
Dr. Jernstedt's research is in the area of learning as it occurs both in formal classroom settings and in natural environments. This research is directed towards understanding the breadth of learning, including its cognitive, behavioral, and affective aspects. He examines what leads to learning, what happens during learning, and what outcomes emerge from learning experiences. He has examined intentional learning, technologically enhanced learning, service learning, and experiential learning programs. (excerpt - Full Bio here)
