Higher education professionals spend our adult lives learning subject matter and becoming experts in content. Another important role for educators is to understand basic elements of the brain and strategies to help student brains learn successfully. If most medical professionals are required to understand basic gross anatomy, perhaps professional educators should understand basic brain anatomy? Educators are not just teaching content like accounting, marketing, or finance: we train brains and shape minds. As educators, we may view the brain as a complex organ that controls and coordinates our mental and physical systems. And we may consider the mind as our psychological sense of self, our “mindsight,” or the part of our brain that thinks about itself.
