Ravens test and Flynn Effect webcast

Thanks to Dr. Steve Hughes, Director of Research, The TOVA Company, and Assistant Professor of Pediatrics, University of Minnesota Medical School, for the follow-up to a prior IQ's Corner post that announced the webcast of a presentation by Dr. John Raven on the topic "The Raven Progressive Matrices and the Flynn Effect: Review and Recent Research."

Dr. Hughes just dropped me an email altering me to the fact that the entire 90 minute webcast is now archived and available for viewing via the University of Minnesota BREEZE technology server (click here to view).

In addition, it appears that Dr. Raven will be back in Minnesota in March for a two day seminar that expands on some of this material, and covers more territory on fostering high-level competencies, effective educational environments and how to change the education system to actually produce such outcomes. When I know more, I will make a post with specific information.
