Leigh Wolf @IgniteLansing

by | Friday, October 02, 2009

Leigh Wolf, my partner in crime as far as the MAET program goes, recently presented at Ignite Lansing. She talked about her two passions, teaching and food (not sure which order to place these). Specifically she talked about food photography and the connections she sees between what she does there and her other life as an educator. It is a lovely presentation, and the video is now available on YouTube. Take a look.

Online vs. face to face: On asking the wrong question

The NYTimes has a story today about how higher prices of gas are driving up the demand for online learning. This is a great example of "synergistic" effects between seemingly disparate events that could not have been easily anticipated - but seem to make perfect sense...

Cheating in a test, why that’s the way to go

I just read this wonderful essay by UCLA professor Peter Nonacs titled: Why I Let My Students Cheat On Their Game Theory Exam. In this essay he describes an experiment he recently conducted in his game theory class. This is what he told his students a week before the...

Rube Goldberg website

Just found out about this through a list-serv I am on. Very cool. Hema is a Dutch department store (started back in 1926 and has over 150 stores all over the Netherlands). Check out HEMA's product page... and just wait a couple of seconds and watch what happens. Don't...
