Neuroplasticity - Teachers’ Brains are Changing Too!

Posted by Jocy Su, Chinese Language Teacher on Aug 5, 2019 11:33:01 AM

Whenever I am at a conference, I always opt for the sessions that have the keyword “research-based” or “neuroscience.” Since teaching is all about building that neuron network, learning more about the related studies makes sense to me. Therefore, 5 days at CTTL, the Center for Transformative Teaching & Learning, where all sessions are backed by both experienced teachers and prestigious researchers, made me feel like a kid in a candy store.

Learning in Costa Rica

Posted by Keana Frey '22 and Yoyo Tobunluepop '20 on Aug 2, 2019 10:10:30 AM

Yesterday, after a VERY long plane ride to Costa Rica, we all hopped into a couple of vans and drove to a restaurant that had really good food. After we left the restaurant we had another very long drive to Finca la Anita, where we learned all of the rules. For dinner we had (the best!) tilapia, potatoes, an interesting type of melon, and a flan-like cake with cacao nibs for dessert. (Every night, they have a dessert that has some form of chocolate on/in it, so a lot of us are excited about that.)

Should College Freshmen Choose Their Roommates or Go Random?

Posted by Anna Barlow-Boesch on Jun 5, 2019 1:23:44 PM

Let’s roll the calendar back 19 years to the summer of 2000. That summer found me eagerly anticipating my freshman year in college. As I awaited my mid-August departure, I remember questions running through my mind -- “What will it be like?” “What classes will I take?” “How difficult will my professors be?” and, most importantly, “Who will be my roommate?”

What is cooler than being able to catch a fish on a custom lure, using a custom rod that you built by hand, from scratch? If you love the water, I cannot think of anything more enjoyable and rewarding.

Sophie is doing her Senior Project with Rich Arena, a graduate student at the School for Marine Science & Technology (SMAST) at UMass Dartmouth.
