In the Spotlight
Carl Wieman, professor of physics and of education, is scheduled to speak Friday, Oct. 24, from 3:15 – 4:15 p.m. as part of the weekend reunion activities. His talk, "Taking a scientific approach to undergraduate science and engineering education," will be live-streamed for public viewing. The URL to watch is http://stanford.io/1ssrP1Z.
Jo Boaler talks with Sarah Montague of the BBC about the messages teachers and parents can communicate to students about their potential. Given the right opportunities and teaching, she says, students can grow their brains to master high-level subjects.
The fall quarter has begun, and Eamonn Callan, the Pigott Family School of Education Professor and associate dean for student affairs, offered some advice to those students who are about to start their studies at the Stanford Graduate School of Education.
