ICOT 2015

ICOT 2015 international Conference on Thinking has opened in Bilbao, Spain! Insight Assessment salutes the over 2000 conference attendees who are dedicating four days to focus on the global importance of developing critical thinking in business, education, sports and the arts.  We’re excited to be able to discuss measuring and training good thinking with this enthusiastic group.

 If you’re attending the conference, stop by our booth. We invite you to attend these presentations by Insight Assessment senior researcher Dr. Peter Facione:

IA for ICOT

1ST JULY: The Educational Power of Measuring Critical Thinking. (available by conference videostream)  Dr. Facione will discuss effective ways of teaching for thinking at all educational levels in all disciplines. He will examine group datasets to demonstrate how the measurement of critical thinking can empower educators and enable more effective student learning.
2ND JULY: Training and Measuring Leadership Decision Making.  Dr. Facione will talk about the importance of critical thought in companies. Leaders with strong thinking skills take advantage of opportunities through effective decision-making, discover opportunities where others can't, encourage collaborative learning and lead the team efficiently.  He will use data gathered by the INSIGHT series of test instruments to discuss practical insights about the potential effectiveness or ineffectiveness of various approaches to training employee thinking at all levels of the business or professional organizations.
 2ND JULY: Round Table on the topic of “Skills for Successful Leadership in Business in which Dr. Facione will link leadership decision making directly to the educational learning outcomes known as critical thinking.
