Human Nature and Early Experience at Notre Dame

The Alliance for Catholic Education at the University of Notre Dame recently hosted an amazing symposium on Human Nature and Early Experience. The speakers reflected a wide range of perspectives and included several prominent anthropologists, developmental psychologists, and primatologists including Agustin Fuentes, Wenda Trevathan, Steve Suomi, Douglas Fry, and Jaak Panksepp (I wrote about Dr. Panskepp here). Quite the lineup to explore a fascinating field. Why am I telling you this AFTER the fact? Because now you can watch the videos of all the presentations and share them with your students and colleagues. Sweet! Check them out at ACE's Vimeo site.

"The University of Notre Dame’s Alliance for Catholic Education (ACE) sustains and strengthens under-resourced Catholic schools through leadership formation, research and professional service to ensure that all children, especially those from low-income families, have the opportunity to experience the gift of an excellent Catholic education."
