Dr. James Zull

Recognition Year: 

Professor of Biology, Case Western Reserve University
Author of The Art of Changing the Brain: Enriching Teaching by Exploring the Biology of Learning

Combining expert knowledge of brain imaging studies and learning theory, The Art of Changing the Brain provides an accessible discussion of the biology of learning. Dr. Zull founded Case Western's University Center for Innovation in Teaching and Education (UCITE) and was its director for ten years. Dr. Zull's work with UCITE and experience as a biochemistry researcher led him to explore the field of brain science and human learning. He invites teachers in higher education or any other setting to accompany him in his exploration of what scientists can tell us about the brain and to discover how this knowledge can influence the practice of teaching.
