ABSTRACT Kurt Fischer leads an international movement to connect biology and cognitive science to education, and is founding editor of the journal Mind, Brain, and Education, which received the award for Best New Journal by the Association of American Publishers. He is director of the MBE Program and Charles Bigelow Professor at HGSE. He has discovered a general scale that provides tools for assessing learning and development in any domain. Among his other discoveries are that people move through different learning pathways while at the same time they show common (universal) processes of learning and development.
