This session reflects some ideas of presenting and experiencing the excitement and insights of lazy wisdom. Too often our conventional wisdom can slide too far into a habitual, unexamined mode that is over absorbed in technical fashions of our culture and era. This session develops a model for making progress in loosening up our perceptions, to see if we can begin to flush out some old obstructive mindsets while tapping into the additional insights of lazy wisdom. New understanding in how the brain processes and rewires itself supports the concept of engaging lazy wisdom as one mean to fully experience what it is to be human. We will address transformational knowledge as compared to informational knowledge and discuss barriers to our awareness. Attendees will leave with information and activities aimed at helping them to enable an atmosphere of "lazy wisdom" in their learning environments. This information will complement the positive longstanding insights engineers gain through traditional education
