Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:
We had two university lecturers in a Q&A session open to teachers nation-wide discussing about testing to learn and how it ignites mechanisms that are brain compatible and conducive to learning. The online event was recorded and upload to the Institution YouTube Channel. This enabled people who couldn't attend the synchronous event to retrieve the information as well. Last year the event we proposed focused on the child learner. This year we focused on the teacher leaner. For the next year we plan to carry out some activities that can join both learners!

Feedback & Keys to Success
How do you feel BAW participation benefited your organization and the local community?
The local community could better understand the ties connecting research to practice and the importance of events/opportunities that 'flesh out' such connections. Immediate outcomes were teachers getting more involved with researchers by inviting them to go to their schools/classrooms.
Please share any suggestions or lessons learned that may help others plan future events:
Use social media. It's fast, easy to share and people can spread the word more easily once the information is posted cleary.
