February Monthly Meeting

“Reading Surprising Research Critically “

Presenter:   Art Markman, PhD

Friday, February 9, 2018

12:00 PM - 1:30 PM  

1.5 hours Professional Development 

About the Presentation:

It is important to keep up with the latest research, because there are many new findings that have the potential to change the way you want to look at your practice.  At the same time, it is dangerous to jump on the bandwagon with a new finding too early, because the scientific process is slow.  In this talk, I go through some surprising findings over the last 15 years and talk about ways to integrate new work while also recognizing findings that may not ultimately hold up.

About the Presenter:

Art Markman, PhD is the Anabel Irion Worsham Centennial Professor of Psychology and Marketing and Founding Director of the Program in the Human Dimensions of Organizations.  He has written over 150 papers on topics including reasoning, decision making, and motivation.  Art brings insights from cognitive science to a broader audience through his blogs at Psychology Today and Fast Company as well as his radio show/podcast Two Guys on Your Head.  He is the author of several books including Smart Thinking, Smart Change, and Brain Briefs.  When Art isn't working or spending time with his family, he can be found playing saxophone in the ska band Phineas Gage.
