On October 17, 2012 we had our first Brown Bag event of the Fall 2012 semester with Dr. Sigmund Tobias and Dr. J. Dexter Fletcher. The topic of discussion was "Readiness to Deal with the Unexpected" -- how do we prepare individuals to deal with surprise and the unexpected as well as an introduction to the 12 components of cognitive readiness. It was a great event with many students and faculty in attendance. This is a very interesting area of research and Dr. Tobias welcomes anyone interested in this topic to contact him about research ideas and funding opportunities. (For his contact information email our RGSO president: firstname.lastname@example.org.) Below are some pictures of the event. For references and PowerPoint slides of the presentation join our Facebook group! Thank you to Dr. Tobias and Dr. Fletcher, the RGSO and everyone in attendance for making this event a success!
