Subject: Human Sciences Perspectives series: Scaffolding Memory Across
the Lifespan

Dear Colleagues,
I would like to announce an open workshop to be held at Macquarie
University on the 28th and 29th of November 2012, as part of the Human
Sciences Perspectives series. The theme of this workshop will be
"Scaffolding Memory Across the Lifespan", and will include
presentations from researchers in Cognitive Science, Psychology, and
Education. In addition to the local speakers, three international
keynote speakers have also been confirmed: Suparna Rajaram (Stony
Brook), Elaine Reese (Otago) and Donna Addis (Auckland).

Topics will include scaffolding and memory development in children,
shared memory performance in teams and work groups, scaffolding memory
in old age, and the development of shared delusions as an example of
"scaffolding gone wrong". A panel discussion session on developing and
integrating methodologies for investigating our questions of interest
will also be held.

Further details, a full program, and online registration are available
here: http://www.ccd.edu.au/events/conferences/2012/scaffoldingmemory/index.html.

Registration is free, but places are strictly limited so register
early to avoid missing out.

Please don't hesitate to contact Celia Harris (celia.harris at mq.edu.au)
if you have any questions.
