If you aren’t familiar with the American RadioWorks podcast, it’s excellent. It runs occasionally on Capital Public Radio. The broadcasts/podcasts provide in depth coverage of a variety of educational issues.
Recently, The New Face of College aired. This episode discusses how much the student population has changed at colleges and universities and I think it’s particularly applicable to what’s happening at SCC and in Los Rios.
“Just 20 percent of college-goers fit the stereotype of being young, single, full-time students who finish a degree in four years. College students today are more likely to be older, part-time, working, and low-income than they were three decades ago. Many are the first in their families to go to college.
This American RadioWorks documentary shows how universities are adapting to serve these new students. It explains changing demographics, and explores what colleges must do to remain engines of social mobility.”
A professor bribes her students not to use them during class, and everybody enjoys the results.
Does a set of data make you feel more comfortable? More successful? Then your interpretation of it is likely wrong. In a surprisingly moving talk, Susan Etlinger explains why, as we receive more and more data, we need to deepen our critical thinking skills. Because it’s hard to move beyond counting things to really understanding them.
