Experts facilitate conversations all over the map from STEM to cultural and humanities topics. This session covers the idea of using speed over accuracy to answer questions.
DYING FOR A STIMULATING CONVERSATION?
Interesting Conversations (an educational non-profit with the mission to make learning fun again) hosts its first Albuquerque “Conversation” Friday, October 12th 5:30 – 7:00 pm at Vibrance restaurant in Nob Hill.
What is a “Conversation”? Interesting Conversations brings outstanding speakers/facilitators together with lifelong learners to share their expertise and passion on a wide range of topics through conversation, rather than lectures. This is about a lively interaction and sharing of ideas, observations and opinions through participation, questions, sharing experiences and insights.
The topics will be all over the map from STEM to cultural and humanities topics. The one thing they will have in common are outstanding experts that will facilitate the conversation. Ticket cost includes a beverage (plenty of non-alcoholic selections and also wine or beer available for those over 21).
The inaugural event will be a fun and stimulating conversation “Lie to Me” by an award-winning educator, Dr. Brown. Using optical illusions, he will help explain neurocognition errors: How we are sometime hard-wired to get the wrong answers.
“The brain has evolved to prioritize speed over accuracy. The rules have changed, but not our brains” said Dr. Brown. "Hard-Wired does not mean insurmountable.”
Some of the upcoming conversations are “Autistic Adulting: Life on the Spectrum” (10/26/18), “Vocational Journey” (11/9/18), and “Speculative Poetry 101” (12/4/18). Check out InterstingConversationsNM.com for upcoming conversations.
