Thinking Txoko

Thinking Txoko >>>

The Thinking-Txoko is an innovative alternative space at the  ICOT 2015 . 

The  will be situated in the main hall of the conference and it will gather different speakers and professionals to discuss certain themes of the conference.

By being in an open space there will be more freedom and opportunities to interact, listen, ask and debate for the attendees. 


During the days of ICOT2015 we will open a "TänkBar" (a venue with thinking on the menu) in connection to interesting lectures and sessions.

In a tasty and visual environment between keynote and featured sessions , we want to help the participants to reflect on what they just have heard in presentations or experienced during workshops.

During coffee breaks and lunches, we will therefore "enhance" the usual café and restaurant environment with various visual aids and tangible thinking tools to help participants to think together while eating or taking a coffee."

50 person per session permited.

Cost: FREE

Language: English

See pdf >>> for more information.

Conference (business and education)

"Training and Measuring Leadership Decision Making"

This session maps the fundamental connections linking "leadership decision making," as practiced by business, military, health care leaders, professionals and workers, directly to the educational learning outcome known as "critical thinking." These fundamental connections make workplace decision making skills and mindset attributes objectively measurable, as demonstrated by data gathered using the INSIGHT series of reasoning skills and mindset instruments. The session includes data on employee groups working in high stakes professional settings showing sustained gains in thinking skills, and data indicating that these skills are predictive of workplace success. The fundamental connections mapped here enable practical projections about the potential effectiveness or ineffectiveness of various approaches to training employee thinking at all levels of the business or professional organizations.



"The Educational Power of Measuring Critical Thinking"

Data from instruments designed to measure critical thinking skills and mindset attributes reveal that there are vast differences in core reasoning skills and in the habits of mind within any given group of students, K-12 through post-baccalaureate. After quickly grounding the APA Delphi Report concept of critical thinking and how this internationally used concept of critical thinking has been successfully measured over the past 25 years, group dataset results are examined. What lessons can we learn about effective ways of teaching for thinking at all educational levels? How does critical thinking relate to learning in the disciplines? How does critical thinking connect with other cognitive skill domains, such as quantitative reasoning or effective writing? In education, we get what we measure. Most importantly, how can we use the measurement of critical thinking to empower educators and enable more effective student learning?
