Tuesday 17 November 2020, 4.00PM to 5.00pm
Speaker(s): Professor Emma Flynn, Queen's University Belfast
In this talk I’ll explore the trade off between learning for oneself versus learning from others, and the continuum that sits between the two. I’ll consider: how effectively different forms of information are transmitted; how who we are observing affects what we replicate; and how information is spread across groups. I’ll be looking at these questions across species, across ages, across cognitive and temperamental characteristics and across different neuro-types. On a more personal note I’ll thread through my talk how my career has developed over time through personal and professional events, including being a mother, an ‘academic mother,' a mentor and a mentee. Also how informal and formal networks can shape your career through social and asocial learning.
