How effective are your listening skills? Sriharsha S. Sundarram, PhD, Assistant Professor at Fairfield University School of Engineering will start off his talk by defining what essentially is effective listening, and provide the science behind the concept of hearing verses listening. Then, discuss common misconceptions, including why it is most important to develop and how you, as an engineer, can improve your listening skills. Sundarram will conclude the talk by sharing a few examples from his own professional experiences illustrating the good and the bad of listening, so that attendees can clearly distinguish the differences between the two types. The examples would be ones to which all engineers can relate to.
