Ten Lessons Learned from When: The Science of Timing
Lee Stuart, Professional & Continuing Education; Alex Williams, Psychology
Tuesday, April 16, 2019 – 12:00pm-1:00pm - BEST 220 & ZOOM
Timing can affect our performance in surprising and significant ways. Last fall, a group of KUEC administrators and faculty participated in a book club pertaining to the science of timing. This spring, Drs. Lee Stuart and Alex Williams extended the club to a group of KUEC students. Attendees will learn about the club's recommendations for incorporating the best research on timing to improve your attention and goal-attainment both inside the classroom and out.
