A full calendar of our Spring 2017 events is available here.

Saturday, February 11
2nd Saturday: Elements of Effective Thinking with Dr. Art Markman. 10 am – noon, M Station Apartments (2906 East MLK Jr. Blvd)
Breakfast and child care provided. All are welcome!

People talk a lot about wanting to think more effectively, but few people have delved into the psychology of effective thinking. A review of psychology research suggests that there are three key elements to effective thinking: good habits, high quality knowledge, the ability to use that knowledge when you need it.  In this discussion, we explore each of these elements of effective thinking with a focus on tools for improving thinking as well as strategies for improving the thinking of others. Art Markman is a professor of Psychology at UT Austin, author of books like Smart Change and Brain Briefs and co-host of the KUT radio segment “Two Guys on Your Head.”
