Art in the Stairwells

For two years in a row, due to the ingenuity of our instructor and alumnus, Stephen Watson, we have gotten to watch his drawing students in ART 110/210 make some awe-inspiring "tape drawings"! In the summer of 2014, students made drawings in the northeast stairwell of Gorgas Library for the second year, something many librarians have told us they enjoy and look forward to. In the summer of 2013, students in ART 210 including Alaina D. Clark, Bo Davis, Jumana Hussain, Ali Jackson, Drew Kemmerly, Ayana Smith, and Marianne Tipton made drawings with blue tape in the northeast stairwell of Amelia Gayle Gorgas Library, as well as in Woods Hall. In the fall semester, students were Kelby McKeel Cox (ART), Charla E Davis (ART), Colson D Domergue (Telecom & Film), Phillip R Estes (Mech Eng), Megan A. Guarisco (Telecom & Film), Emily Elizabeth Hill (ART), Carroll C Keefer (ART), Braxton Maurice Lett (ART), Patrick I Little (ART), Madison T Sumner (Adv), Katherine T Trousdale (CommDis), Margaret McCreery Wolfe (ARH) Thanks so much to the UA Libraries and Librarians for letting us tape up their space!

Rainforest Guardian: A Lotus-Shaped Concept Skyscraper

Rainforest Guardian: A Lotus-Shaped Concept Skyscraper | Things I care about... | Scoop.it

When you add one part skyscraper, one part forest-saving reservoir, and one part eco-laboratory, you get the all-parts-awesome behemoth known as the Rainforest Guardian, a conceptual design that looks like a giant metal lotus flower sticking out of the expansive Amazon rainforest.

Designed by Jie Huang, Jin Wei, Qiaowan Tang, Yiwei Yu, and Zhe Hao from China, the architectural beast is not like your average skyscraper. In contrast to the normally spearhead-like structure of your typical cloud-kissing building, the top of the Guardian has the most surface area. This allows it to catch and store hundreds of gallons of rainwater to save for the dry season. It also gives the building an organic, futuristic aesthetic that seems more at home in a galaxy far, far away than on our own world. Not to mention, the building is driping with dozens of long, wet vines—making it some fusion of nature and artificial design. No wonder it was an honorable mention at this year's eVolvo Skyscraper Competition...

'It was not our intent to destroy universities ... . That's not why we did it.'

'It was not our intent to destroy universities ... . That's not why we did it.' | Things I care about... | Scoop.it

Love this.


"It wasn't our intent, I just want to be clear about that now, it was not our intent to destroy universities. That's not why we did it. We want to change universities, and we want them to work for the better.

Thinking in Models: for Design, for Learning…

A large part of this talk is about that change. It's interesting. We go from the first slide about people wanting to be relevant, wanting universities to be relevant, all the way to the last slide about what's going to replace universities, without doing all the thinking that we need to do in between. We need to do this thinking in between.

Let's begin our thinking with where the current trends, we're told, are going. We're told there will be tiered service models at universities. We're told there will be analytics and data-driven management. We're told there will be alternative credentials. To a certain degree, all of these three things are true.

To a certain degree, none of these three things are going to work themselves out in the way that the economist or economists or education reformers predict. When you look at that, basically it's like they have this model or design in their head of how we could rebuild the university system, wipe it all out, start over, and we'll have a new model.




Figure 1 - workflow process employed to assist LMS selection

This model of accountability and cost frameworks and all of that will solve all the problems that the current system has. Models are popular in education too. Here's a model (Figure 1) of a workflow-processed employee to assist LMS selection. You can't really read the small writing there. It goes from enrollment to program administration to learner interactions to content creation to assessment.

It's a fishbone diagram. If you're in economics or business, you're probably familiar with it.Models of how to select educational technology including customized lists of LMS features, a way of picking among those 305 features of a learning management system that you might want to solve the educational problems at your institution."

You really need to read this. Or at least skim it. This is not your ordinary POV. "I criticize Coursera. I criticize the Stanford MOOCs and all of that, but when Norvig and Thrun launched their artificial intelligence MOOC, in the first week, 150,000 people signed up. Overall, I think it was something like 250,000 people signed up for one course, a really hard course that's really difficult to understand, in artificial intelligence.


Forget the fact that a lot of them dropped out. A lot of them didn't. Tens of thousands finished. This, by itself, indicates that the old model wasn't working. There was such a pent-up demand for upper-level university courses in artificial intelligence that, when one was finally made available, people knocked down the doors trying to get to it."
