Strut

Ongoing through Monday, January 5, 2015

Strut is an exhibition of recent work from faculty in the University of Utah's College of Fine Arts and College of Architecture + Planning, representing theatre, studio art, architecture, film, and music.



The exhibitors were asked to contemplate how their work embraces and reflects the theme, Strut.  Pride, posturing, and impressions run through many of the pieces; their subjects exude a sense of self-confidence and swagger, and they command your attention. Others create forms that withstand naturally destructive phenomena: weather, decay, and entropy. For these artists and designers, Strut also refers to structural elements that come alive and survive in a constant state of tension.



We hope you, too, will be captivated by the talent and dedication of the faculty we honor here, and will join us in celebrating the beautiful work they have created.



Exhibitors Include:

Erin Carraher, Lisa Chaufty, Miguel Chuaqui, Christopher Lee, Anne Mooney, Prescott Muir, Maureen O’Hara Ure, and  Brenda Van der Wiel. Event Calendars: Architecture + Planning, College of Fine Arts, Marriott Library, University of Utah

College Coaching for 21st Century M...

Tuesday, January 27, 2015, 1:30 – 3:30pm

This lecture will describe the methods we use in an attempt to transform our traditional, kilostudent classroom into a modern-day learning environment. Formal instruction tends to emphasize rote learning and algorithmic problem solving even though these are tasks better done by machines than by humans. Since knowing the solution to a problem is less important than knowing how to solve a problem, we have restructured our large, instructor-centered lecture into an open, student-centered problem-solving forum. Here, instructors serve the role of coaches, preparing students to learn on their own and become better equipped to tackle the complex problems of twenty-first-century science and medicine. Our objectives, which have relevance beyond the classroom, are:



- To improve student confidence

- To regularly engage students in intense thought

- To sharpen students' skills in filtering relevant from irrelevant information

- To train students to accept and manage intellectual risks

- To improve students' ability to deal with ambiguity

- To help students learn to persevere through, and grow from their daily setbacks



The most important finding is the positive outcome from a semester-long group project that puts students' knowledge into action by communicating a molecular mode of action exhibited in a compound of interest.  Notably, learning gains were seen in professional science-based literacy skills. The talk will conclude with ongoing and future activities aimed at personalizing undergraduate instruction as a means to promote curiosity driven learning.
