Uri Alon: Why truly innovative science demands a leap into the unknown
While studying for his PhD in physics, Uri Alon thought he was a failure because all his research paths led to dead ends.

Boston University Public health is a multi-disciplinary field that aims to 1) prevent disease and death, 2) promote a better quality of life, and 3) create environmental conditions in which people can be healthy by intervening at the institutional, community, and societal level. Whether public health practitioners can achieve this mission depends upon their ability to accurately identify and define public health problems, assess the fundamental causes of these problems, determine populations most at-risk, develop and implement theory- and evidence-based interventions, and evaluate and refine those interventions to ensure that they are achieving their desired outcomes without unwanted negative consequences. To be effective in these endeavors, public health practitioners must know how to apply the basic principles, theories, research findings, and methods of the social and behavioral sciences to inform their efforts. This module will provide an overview of some of the theories you will learn in SB721.

All the three processes are integrated and interdependent on each other.

Conceptual Framework The Conceptual Framework Model The conceptual framework for the College of Education (COE) describes the shared vision which provides coherence for both the initial and advanced programs for the preparation of teachers and other professional school personnel. Focusing on the theme “Educator as Decision Maker,” the unit seeks to prepare professional educators who will be capable of applying knowledge and skills, reflecting on and refining practices, and identifying and solving problems in an increasingly diverse, complex, and dynamic technological society. The “Educator as Decision Maker” must be a reflective practitioner, a change agent, and a lifelong learner. This organizing theme reflects the assumption that effective educators must make reasonable judgments, careful and conscientious decisions and choices with the intent of optimizing student learning outcomes; it emphasizes the view of decision making as an ongoing, interactive, and empowering process.
