Kurt Fischer

Director of the Mind, Brain, and Education Program and Charles Bigelow Professor at the Harvard Graduate School of Education

Kurt Fischer leads an international movement to connect biology and cognitive science to education. He is founding editor of the journal Mind, Brain, and Education (Wiley/Blackwell), which received the award for Best New Journal from the Association of American Publishers. As Director of the Mind, Brain, and Education Program and Charles Bigelow Professor at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, he does research on cognition, emotion, and learning and their relation to biological development and educational assessment. He has discovered a general scale that provides tools for assessing learning and development in any domain, making possible the creation of scientifically grounded standard assessments that connect to student learning. Among his other discoveries are that people move through different learning pathways while at the same time they show common (universal) processes of learning and development. His research group has recently demonstrated that people with “disabilities” commonly have distinct talents based on alternative learning patterns rather than having brain/learning defects. His most recent books include The Educated Brain and Mind, Brain, and Education in Reading Disorders (Cambridge University Press).
