Abstract

The present paper aims at examining the collaboration of parents and university in facilitating children’s brain-based learning. The characteristics of brain-based learning advocated by Jensen (1998) will be referred to. They involve uniqueness, informative feedback, drive for meaning, enrichment, mind-body integration, absence of threat, the social mind and the developmental stages of readiness. In the current research, data was collected through a case study on home-university partnership on children’s memory strategies. The observation reports on the children from the thirty parents would be illustrated to critique how the results were related to brain-based learning. Further discussion will be on the possible partnership of parents and the university in development children’s brain-based learning.
