Abstract: This session grows out of my first experience of an In2:InThinking Network Forum last year. I experienced it as a feast for the mind; and, at many moments found myself in “overwhelm”. My considerations of this experience have led me to several themes:
The art of reflection,
Applying recent research on the brain,
Eastern and Western approaches to “attention”; and
The nature of learning.
This session is designed primarily for those new to the In2:InThinking Network Forum experience; however, veterans will find some ways to enhance the conference experience, too.
The FIRST INSTALLMENT ON THE ART OF REFLECTION will be in March 2012, via Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne's Ongoing Discussion conference call, when "How to make the most out of this Forum" will be the topic of conversation.
