Coyle Scholar

We hope you’ll plan to join us when we welcome best-selling author and cognitive scientist, Professor Daniel Willingham, to campus on Sunday, October 15th, at 7 p.m. Dr. Willingham is a professor of psychology at the University of Virginia whose most recent book, Outsmart Your Brain, distills neuroscience research into a user-friendly guide on how the brain learns, how students can study more effectively, and how to make learning more enjoyable. The Sunday conversation will be free and open to the public, and Dan will spend the following day engaging with GFA students and faculty on campus as our Coyle Scholar on Monday, October 16th.

About the Coyle Scholar Speaker Series

James M. Coyle Endowed Visiting Scholars Program
This program, begun in 1996, brings to Greens Farms Academy at least twice each year inspiring, prominent individuals of scholarly and contemporary interest, public servants, academicians, people of letters, or other public figures who have made a sustained and lasting contribution to education defined in its broadest sense. Each visiting scholar is invited to spend the day at the School, attend classes, and work with our students. After a reception, the visiting scholar delivers a public lecture for the community-at-large.
