Alexander Rosenberg is an artist, writer and educator with a background in cognitive neuroscience. Working across a range of disciplines allows for an approach that is creative and playful, as well as rooted in cutting-edge research. Since 2013, he has applied this diverse thinking to designing educational tools, providing student workshops and teacher training across the UK.
As a practicing artist, much of his work with teachers involves building their confidence in being creative themselves. Whether that be in inspiring visual and fluent creative writing, or harnessing the power of ‘making stuff’ to enhance learning in any given context. Alexander’s cognitive research experience at both UCL and Harvard’s neuroimaging laboratory focused on the use of humour in how the human brain absorbs information. This is reflected in his warm, personable style. He has written and illustrated a number of dynamic resources that are used by thousands of teachers, students and parents nationally and endorsed by leading educational consultants.
Alexander can offer support in the following areas at both primary and secondary level: raising the standard for creative writing; making reading comprehension relatable; ambitious and academic art education; supporting students in cultivating revision methods and organisational skills through to A-level.
