Introduction to the Sciences of Learning and Development
In the past few years, interdisciplinary researchers and scholars have worked together to synthesize research related to understanding how youth develop in context, resulting in a new developmental systems framework based on the sciences of learning and development. Webinar participants will learn about the sciences of learning and development, including epigenetics, brain science, malleability, and plasticity. A special emphasis is placed on stress and trauma and its potential impact on youth learning and development. The webinar finishes by connecting the SoLD principles to the 4-H Thriving Model, so participants understand how these principles can be an intentional part of high-quality 4-H youth programs.
