Great Minds Are Not All The Same

Dean’s Lecture Series

Great Minds Are Not All The Same

This lecture presented by Temple Grandin is a remarkable opportunity to learn about different types of thinking, such as object visualizers who think in pictures; visual spatial mathematical thinkers who think in patterns; and verbal word thinking. Join us to learn about how different types of thinkers can use their skills in a complementary manner to achieve many things. Grandin will share how being a person who thinks in pictures has helped her through her work in different fields.

Temple Grandin was diagnosed with autism as a child and went on to pursue work in psychology and animal science. She has become a leading advocate for autistic communities and has also written books and provided consultation on the humane treatment of animals. In 2010, HBO released an Emmy Award-winning film on Grandin’s life.

This event is part of the Dean’s Lecture Series and the official kick-off for Disability Awareness Month.
