As the world goes through an economic transformation, several questions arise about education and learning. First, what is learning? Second, how is it best achieved? Third, how do we recognize and certify learning? These are the existential questions that the Office of Digital Learning is taking on. Prof. Sarma will present MIT's work and future plans.
Sanjay Sarma is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at MIT and the Vice President for Open Learning. He also leads the Office of Digital Learning, which oversees MIT OpenCourseWare. Rescheduled!
Professor Grossman will share his heart-wrenching experience waiting for an organ transplant, the experience of having a heart transplant, how the procedure changed his life, and how he managed his professional work during his near six-month recovery at MGH. He will provide a deeply personal insight to the process of organ transplants.
Professor Grossman will also share with us an overview of the ground-breaking work currently being done by faculty in MIT’s Department of Biology. For anyone with an interest in Life Science, you won’t want to miss this presentation.
The Science Trivia Challenge is a friendly, spirited contest hosted by the MIT Club of Boston that is part of the Cambridge Science Festival, organized annually by the MIT Museum. The eleventh annual Challenge is scheduled for Wednesday evening, April 19, 2017 at the Broad Institute of MIT & Harvard, 7 Cambridge Center, in Kendall Square, Cambridge, MA. It is a live team trivia quiz where contestants are challenged on their knowledge of biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, astronomy, computer science, earth sciences, inventions, local contributions to science and other subjects. The information might be useful or purely trivial and might test knowledge of scientific methods, theories, or history. Teams have to be ready for anything, and any team can win!
