"Gender, Race, and the Complexities of Science and Technology: A Problem-Based Learning Experiment,
"What can we learn about science and technology–and what can we do with that knowledge? Who are "we" in these questions?–whose knowledge and expertise gets made into public policy, new medicines, topics of cultural and political discourse, science education, and so on? How can expertise and lay knowledge about science and technology be reconciled in a democratic society? How can we make sense of the interactions of living and non-living, humans and non-humans, individual and collectivities i

26 - Learning from and Responding to Financial Crisis, Part II (Guest Lecture by Lawrence Summers)
In the second of his two lectures in honor of Arthur Okun, Professor Summers points out that real interest rates have been very low in the current subprime crisis. This indicates that the shock to the economy was more a financial breakdown shock than a disinflation shock. But financial breakdown shocks are not necessarily very harmful to the economy, so long as financial intermediation capital is not destroyed. In a financial crisis like the present one, financial firms are likely to take the st
25 - Learning from and Responding to Financial Crisis, Part I (Guest Lecture by Lawrence Summers)
Professor Summers, former U. S. Treasury Secretary and former President of Harvard University, in this the first of two lectures in honor of former Yale Professor and Council of Economic Advisors chairman Arthur Okun, offers thoughts on the role of monetary policy in economic fluctuations, past and present. In the "Okun period," ending about when Okun died in 1980, the monetary authorities were very much involved in actually creating economic contractions. Inflation would repeatedly get out of c
Listen: Osher Lifelong Learning spring term set
The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Vanderbilt offers spring classes for the community beginning March 15. The non-credit classes are geared toward older adults who want lectures and discussions in a relaxed and informal environment.
The Distance: Cancer
"297 feet. It's the distance between our research labs and our patient rooms." We open on a hallway, as Dr. Nestor Esnaola tells viewers how MUSC physicians and researchers are working together in multidisciplinary teams to create new answers for pancreatic cancer patients. He explains that "our researchers are literally creating new answers down the hall that don't exist anywhere else."
Learning Matters: A New Ecosystem of Educational Resources
The goal of this paper is to provide an overview of the emerging ecosystem for instructional resources as states consider new models and approaches for driving gains in student performance and college and workforce readiness.
