Come and listen to Dr. Linda Caviness from La Sierra University, CA who is giving a two-hour lecture on May 12, 2018 at 2:00PM.


                                                  Linda Bryant Caviness, Ph.D.

Linda Caviness recently retired as chair of Curriculum and Instruction at La Sierra University’s graduate School of Education in Riverside, California, where she served as a reading specialist, professor of philosophy and neuroeducation, and researcher in psychophysiology. During her stint at La Sierra, she developed the Brain, Affect and Education specialization for master’s and doctoral studies. She continues to mentor masters and doctoral students and to teach as an adjunct professor during summers on the La Sierra and Burman University campuses and at Union College. A graduate of Andrews University and University of California, Berkeley, Dr. Caviness also attended Southern Adventist University. Having taught from pre-school through the doctoral level, she qualified and was chosen to serve on the review panel to assess and
approve teacher education programs for the State of California. Additionally, for 6 years she was a member of the North American Division Educational Advisory Committee, which guides, governs and produces curriculum for K-12 Adventist Education The Caviness’s son, Tad, led Linda to study education from neuroscience perspective. Tad’s terminal illness—a rare condition termed Niemann Pick disease—became noticeable when Tad was 6 years old. In an effort to help save their son, Linda began studying to better understand the brain and Tad’s neuromuscular deterioration. After Tad’s death, her study of the brain continued informally and formally at Andrews University, University of California, Berkeley, and the University of Southern California. Her doctoral dissertation compared education-related neuroscience with E. G. White’s 100-year-old counsels to educators. She continues to present nationally and internationally on these and other research findings. Have you ever wondered about the intricate functions of the human brain? What role does emotion pay in controlling stress? What is the secret of effective communication?
