Biography

Mariale Hardiman is interim dean and has served as vice dean of academic affairs, professor of clinical education, and co-founder and director of the School of Education’s Neuro-Education Initiative (NEI). The NEI has been recognized as an innovative cross-disciplinary program that brings to educators relevant research from the learning sciences to inform teaching and learning through the JHU’s Mind, Brain, and Teaching master’s and doctoral courses and professional development programs. Her research and publications focus on enhancing educational practices through techniques that foster innovation and creative problem-solving. Her current research includes a randomized trial investigating the effects of arts integration on long-term retention of content and student engagement. She is also investigating how knowledge of neuro- and cognitive science influences teacher practice and teacher efficacy beliefs.

Before joining Johns Hopkins in 2006, Hardiman served in the Baltimore City Public Schools for more than 30 years. As the principal of Roland Park Elementary/Middle School, she led the school to its designation as a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence. With the use of the Brain-Targeted Teaching® Model that Hardiman developed, the school was recognized nationally for innovative arts programming.

She presents nationally and internationally on topics related to the intersection of research in the neuro- and cognitive sciences with effective teaching strategies, including meaningful integration of the arts. She has significant experience in educational leadership development and education for children with disabilities.
