Karim is amped for a well deserved vacation. He logs in to Airbnb to start planning a trip to San Francisco, and stumble upon a great listing hosted by Dany. He books it. A moment later, Dany receives a notification that his home has been booked. He checks his listing calendar and sure enough, those…

The Power of Goals – Coursera Engineering – Medium

How setting — and being reminded of — goals are moving the needle for learners The very first moments of a course are a crucial point to engage learners for the long haul, and many learners need a nudge to get started — especially those who have yet to invest their time and resources in their learning journey. The literature has consistently shown that having specific goals in mind helps learners build motivation and stay focused, resulting in more positive learning outcomes. We decided to test that…

Photo courtesy of Jim Keller. Jim Keller had a pretty whirlwind week in Rio de Janeiro. But it wasn’t a sightseeing trip for the Mizzou Electrical Engineering and Computer Science professor. This visit was all business. Keller gave a keynote presentation, presented on two research papers, was re-elected vice president of publications and participated in a…

NSF-funded program at MU set to train teachers in STEM

The MU College of Engineering has four National Science Foundation Research Experiences for Undergraduate sites, geared toward expanding learning opportunities for college students. But what about building interest in younger students who may decide at too early an age that engineering or related fields aren’t for them? The solution — train the teachers. For years, Satish Nair has run LEGO robotics camps, robotics design challenges, a rural and title-1 elementary program TECH4K5, prepared sample curricula for elementary school teachers and…

A record number of Americans watched the 2017 solar eclipse — and sought science afterward — ScienceDaily

The 2017 total solar eclipse spurred a flurry of interest about solar eclipses, according to the final report of a survey led by the University of Michigan. A follow-up survey of American adults who viewed the August 2017 total solar eclipse showed that the eclipse drove people to gather information about 16 times in the three months following the event. This level of adult information-seeking after an event is higher than previously reported for any similar scientific event. The eclipse…

Data Science Manager Jen Wang Shares Her Thoughts with ForbesBooks – Wayfair Tech Blog

Workplace diversity is not just a ethical issue. Teams that overcome diversity issues (e.g., gender, race, ethnicity, experience) often achieve greater productivity than homogeneous teams. If you’re surrounded by people who are different from you, you will be constantly challenged to reexamine facts, think deeper, and explain better. In this way diversity can enhance creativity and boost team performance and technological innovation. In a recent episode of the Advantage|ForbesBooks podcast, Wayfair’s Data Science Manager, Jen Wang, speaks with Gregg Stebben…

Engineering Ethics Blog: Exporting Enslavement: China’s Illiberal Artificial Intelligence

In 1989, I had the privilege of visiting Tiananmen Square in Beijing only a few months after the famous June Fourth protests that the Chinese govermnent violently suppressed.  Our tour guide showed us black marks on the pavement that were left by fires during the conflict—a memory that has not faded. Much has changed since then.  China is now a world leader in many areas of science and technology, including artificial intelligence (AI).  But the nature of the Chinese government…

Incivility in the workplace associated with more negative parenting behaviors at home, study says — ScienceDaily

When people are rude to their coworkers or treat them badly, they probably don’t realize the unintended victims in that encounter could be the coworkers’ children. Women who experience incivility in the workplace are more likely to engage in stricter, more authoritarian parenting practices that can have a negative impact on their children, according to research presented at the annual convention of the American Psychological Association. “These findings reveal some previously undocumented ways that women, in particular, suffer as a…

Experts highlight ebola vaccine progress and suggest next steps — ScienceDaily

Despite promising advances, important scientific questions remain unanswered in the effort to develop a safe and effective Ebola vaccine, according to members of an international Ebola research consortium. In a Viewpoint published in The Lancet, the experts review the current field of Ebola vaccine candidates and clinical trials and highlight key gaps in knowledge that need to be addressed by future research. Researchers at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health,…
