Topic: During the December meeting, Southwest Washington GIG members had a fascinating discussion. We wanted to understand more about rapid brain evolution (multi-tasking driven by technology) and what that means for those of us who train people. One of our members, Michael Hurst, has a great deal of knowledge about this topic. Hurst is a faculty member and a doctoral candidate in Educational Leadership in Education Technology at the University of Phoenix. During our January meeting, Hurst will give a short presentation then lead a round-table discussion on this topic.
