Speaker: Dr. Kamala Mukunda, Centre for Learning, Bangalore
Venue: Room No. 316, Dwarka Campus
Date, Day and Time: 10 January, 2013, Thursday, 2.30 pm
The topic of intelligence is one of the more controversial ones in psychological research and educational application. This talk will introduce some of the difficult questions regarding nature and nurture, change and stability, from the point of view of education. It will attempt to do this by exploring a few 'good questions', rather than by attempting to answer them!
