Intelligence: It’s Not Just IQ

Howard Gardner, Bruce McEwen, The Rockefeller University: Psychologist HOWARD GARDNER is noted for his theory of multiple intelligences, which has profoundly influenced the field of education for 25 years. A faculty member at Harvard, Dr. Gardner was joined at the winter 2009 Parents & Science program by Rockefeller neuroscientist BRUCE MCEWEN, whose research has helped create a new understanding of how stress and hormones affect the brain’s structure and function during development, in childhood, and throughout adult life.

The training program “Training of Trainers” is an educational product that is currently missing in the partner countries – Bulgaria, Cyprus and Romania. Due to the early stage of development of the youth sector and youth work in these countries the educational materials aimed at non-formal learning are still limited and insufficient. The lack of adequate educational framework for training of youth workers in the field of formal education leads to inefficient use of the capacity of professionals.

This course fills a gap in the youth sector, namely the need of methodologies for the preparation of trainers, who are able to train youth workers. This course will set the basis for the preparation of teams of trainers of youth workers. The course will serve the goal of development of youth work in the participating countries and other interested parties. A large number of youth workers can be trained according to the methodology at national and international level to use and promote non-formal learning as a tool to enhance the realization of young people in the labor market and increase their social cohesion.
