You Are Not So Smart: Academic Advising Edition
58 min – March 6, 2019 (Tuesday)
Panelists: Amanda Voight & Gina Beyer (Arizona State University)
In this 58-min videocast presentation, Gina Beyer and Amanda Voight (Arizona State University) draw from concepts introduced in David McRaney’s 2012 bestselling book, You Are Not So Smart, and discuss these concepts’ relevance to the work academic advisors do with students. They take participants on an adventure through their brains, demonstrating how easy it is for us to fall prey to ways our minds work, including biases and logical fallacies in the context of education. They show how these natural workings of our brains can affect our daily lives and create social and psychological challenges, and they share tips and tricks on how to work through the challenges of the human mind to improve student learning.
