Nathan is the Vilas Distinguished Achievement Professor of Learning Sciences in the School of Education’s Department of Educational Psychology.

During the event, Nathan will discuss his new book, “Foundations of Embodied Learning: A Paradigm for Education,” with Martha Wagner Alibali, a professor of psychology and director of the Cognitive Development and Communication Lab at UW–Madison.

“Foundations of Embodied Learning,” according to a preview of the book, “advances learning, instruction, and the design of educational technologies by rethinking the learner as an integrated system of mind, body, and environment.”

The preview adds that the book’s “coherent, evidence-based framework articulates principles of grounded and embodied learning for design and its implications for curriculum, classroom instruction, and student formative and summative assessment for scholars and graduate students of educational psychology, instructional design and technology, cognitive science, the learning sciences, and beyond.”

The event is free, but registration is requested. Learn more at this A Room of One’s Own webpage.
