Different Diverse Minds Will be More Effective in Solving Problems
Temple Grandin will speak at the Plenary Session on Monday, February 2, 2015
"In my lecture I will discuss how people with different approaches to problem solving can complement each other's skills to do innovative research and solve problems. I am a visual thinker and another person may be a more quantitative mathematical thinker. There is research that shows that these different types of thought processes are real. My talk will help both research scientists and people in the field to understand each other and work together more effectively. I will also discuss how visual thinking helped me understand animal behavior."
