American RadioWorks. The Problem with Lecturing. Back in the late 1970s a colleague came to David Hestenes with a problem.

The Problem with Lecturing

The two of them were physics professors at Arizona State University. Hestenes was teaching mostly graduate students, but his colleague was teaching introductory physics, and the students in his classes were not doing well. Semester after semester, the class average on his exams never got above about 40 percent. "And I noted that the reason for that was that his examination questions were mostly qualitative, requiring understanding of the concepts," says Hestenes. Rethinking the Way College Students Are Taught. It's a typical scene: a few minutes before 11:00 on a Tuesday morning and about 200 sleepy-looking college students are taking their seats in a large lecture hall - chatting, laughing, calling out to each other across the aisles.

For the next hour and 15 minutes, the instructor will lecture and the students will take notes.

Students in this class say the instructor is one of the best lecturers in the department. From Questions to Concepts: Interactive Teaching in Physics. Let Kids Rule the School.

The University of Wherever. Cern residency programme unites artists and physicists. Cern has launched a programme that aims to bring together artists and physicists at its laboratory near Geneva. Collide@Cern -- which falls into a wider Cern policy for engaging with the arts called Great Arts for Great Science -- is a three-month residency programme for artists to be mentored by leading scientists, supported by a stipend of €10,000.

The head of Cern's arts programme, Ariane Koek, said: "The arts touch the parts that science alone cannot reach and vice versa. Collide@Cern gives Cern, artists and scientists the opportunity to engage in creative collisions that can occur when these two areas of human creativity and ingenuity come together. " The first part of the scheme -- Prix Ars Electronica -- was launched in August at digital arts festival Ars Electronica.

Éducation nouvelle. The Macroscope: Chap. 6. This is chapter 6 of the "The Macroscope" by Joël de Rosnay Our education remains hopelessly analytical, centered on a few disciplines, like a puzzle whose pieces overlap rather than fit together. It is an education that prepares us neither for the global approach to complex problems nor for the interplay between them. Nevertheless the present generation of eighteen- to twenty-five-year-olds itself poses problems globally. It seems that through a thousand parallel channels, passing from the traditional media to those of the counterculture by a sort of osmosis with nature and society, the young people have learned to discover for themselves a form of the systemic approach. Yet this emergent thought, this new manner of seeing and judging the world, is not the monopoly of one generation alone.
