Clatsop Community College and the Fort George Brewery are pleased to announce the next public event in the Ales & Ideas lecture series featuring free multimedia presentations by members of the CCC faculty and staff.
Thursday, January 24th, CCC Developmental English Instructor Marian Derlet, MA TESOL, will offer Brain Rewiring for Dummies: How to Improve Your Cognitive Competence. The brain is a hot topic these days. People tout the alleged marvels of neuroplasticity as the panacea for cognitive limitations. Are we all stuck with a set of hard wired connections that restrict our capabilities? Why does it seem as though the educational system can’t tap the potential of student brains? Did a researcher really buy a seat on Jet Blue just for a brain? Marian Derlet will light up your neurons with tales of the good, bad, and simply wondrous qualities of our brains. Doors open at 6:00 pm; event begins at 7:00pm. Seasonal beers on tap, food and other beverages are available for purchase. Minors are welcome.
