Online - Cognitive Diversity

  • August 19, 2020

  • Online, Bridges 2e

The Bridges 2e Center for Research and Professional Development is delighted to bring you Critical Conversations about Cognitive Diversity with Scott Barry Kaufman, a monthly webcast featuring in-depth conversations with the top minds in gifted and twice-exceptional education. Dr. Kaufman, the director of research at the 2e Center, is a prominent voice in the neurodiversity movement and has published broadly about intelligence and creativity, including his books Ungifted and Wired to Create. His most recent book Transcend reconceives Maslow’s hierarchy of human needs as a framework to drive self-discovery and actualization.

The August episode will feature Dr. Jack Horner, a renowned paleontologist whose path into academia was an atypical one. His story is an inspiration for gifted and twice-exceptional students whose own trajectories may not be following a typical path. Also appearing on the August webcast is Dr. Fumiko Hoeft, a professor of psychological sciences and director of the Brain Imaging Research Center at University of Connecticut, as well as the director of the Laboratory for Learning Engineering and Neural Systems, located at UCONN/UCSF.
