POD:01 - Issues in Adolescent Development
Jeanie Harmon, Child Development

Adolescence, once a relatively short period in the course of development, has now extended from the teens into the twenties for many youth in America. Much of our student population, particularly those ages 18-22, display characteristics that reflect an extended adolescence. Students are living at home with parents for longer periods of time, taking longer to achieve independence and self-sufficiency, are less familiar with the demands of the work world and have a harder time setting and achieving goals. How do we support the needs of these students, set appropriate expectations and facilitate the skills needed for competence and self-sufficiency? In this session, we will discuss characteristics of late adolescent development and practical strategies for supporting the needs of students, ages 18-22 in the college-learning environment.

Mohammed ibn Musa al-Khwarizimi was a hugely important mathematician and scientist from the early Islamic period (second millennium AD).  His influence on shaping of modern mathematical ideas is so important to our mathematical thinking that the word algebra, which was taken from the title of his original textbook, and algorithm, which is a corruption of the name “al-Khwarizimi” have become words that are commonly used today.  Dean Gooch, mathematics instructor at SRJC, will trace the history of Mohammed ibn Musa’s work, discuss the probable origin of his mathematical and scientific knowledge, and explain the impact of his work on modern mathematics.

Presenter(s): Tim Melvin
 
In 1931, Kurt Gödel published one of the most infamously not-famous-enough works in mathematics: his incompleteness theorems. In this talk we will explore the history behind his incompleteness theorems, and how he showed that truth and mathematical proof are not the same. We also explore how Gödel’s incompleteness theorems relate to artificial intelligence and the limits of humanly knowable mathematics.

POD:66 THE CASE FOR LIVE THEATER IN THE DIGITAL ENTERTAINMENT WORLD
 
Presenter(s): PROFESSOR WENDY WISELY
 
Over 2000 years ago, eager audiences would fill amphitheaters to have their eyes and ears amazed by spectacle and music, their minds challenged with themes and language, and their hearts touched watching the struggles of characters. Today’s audiences, need only tap a button or run a finger along a touch screen to bring up endless entertainment and educational content; and all from the comfort of their private couch. How can live theatre compete with that? Should live theatre just take its final bow and limp away into nostalgic memory? Why do people still go to see and hear plays or musicals? What are today's audiences seeking?

POD:67 PUBLIC INTEREST, PRIVATE INTERESTS: COMMUNITY COLLEGES IN THE STUDENT SUCCESS ERA
 
Presenter(s): TERRY MULCAIRE
 
Terry Mulcaire will discuss two conflicting models of the community college. One sees the college as a public institution committed to the public interest. The second seeks to model public institutions after private sector models. In this model, notions of public interest and public good dwindle, or disappear. In the Student Success era, community colleges have been reformed to fit the private sector model. Mulcaire will discuss the problems and challenges associated with this change.

POD:69 SØREN KIERKEGAARD VS. SILICON VALLEY
 
Presenter(s): MARK STAPP, PHD
 
The philosopher Søren Kierkegaard critiqued what he saw as intellectual hubris among his Enlightenment contemporaries. He argued that human beings tend to forget that they are existing creatures rather than abstract intellects. Our own age shares some of the confidence and ambition at which Kierkegaard raised pencil image of Soren Kierkegaard an eyebrow. Are the most fundamental human questions answerable by technology and Big Data analysis? Are much-publicized beliefs that death is “solvable” or in an impending technological singularity as reasonable as they might seem? This talk explores how Kierkegaard’s response to his own age remains relevant to ours.

Presenter(s): KAREN WALKER, PHD, ENGLISH SRJC
 
While Orwell’s depiction of totalitarian power in 1984 has been much studied and discussed, little attention has been paid to the novel’s awareness of relationships between power and aesthetics. Dr. Karen Walker will bring that aspect of the novel to light––and raise questions about the role beauty plays in our own lives.

POD:71 Spring 2018 PDA Day Tauzer Lecture Featuring Sean Martin


 
Presenter(s): Sean Martin
 

From Dictatorship to Democracy: Education and the Social Bases of Self Respect: Our society is undergoing historic political, economic, and cultural upheaval causing many to reconsider the purposes and functions of essential social institutions. Public education, and Community Colleges in particular, have been at the epicenter of divisive struggles over the meaning of education, its role in developing individuals’ potential, and its relevance to the maintenance of a just, stable and prosperous society. The conventional wisdom is that our educational system is outdated and in need of reform. But what values should guide such reform, and what would it mean to say that any given reform “works?” Such questions call for a review of our basic conception of justice and the educational institutions required to secure it.

POD:72 Spring 2018 PDA Day Throw Out Your Textbook


Presenter(s): Todd Straus
 
Classes will dull your mind, destroy the potential for authentic creativity -Beautiful Mind mathematician John Nash. More and more of us educators agree with John Nash; and many of us feel that the problem lies largely with our textbooks. Most textbooks are really reference books with exercises. The internal logic of these books is that of the author whose goal is to cover material in logical sequence. The problem is that learning is a complex creative and associative process requiring repetition, detours, constant reconnections and pleasure. The average textbook is not written with the learner or the natural learning process in mind. Too many of our textbooks, with their emphasis on coverage, dull the mind of student and instructor alike.

Do you have stories that you use in your classes? Using story telling to enhance students' understanding is an important tool for giving depth to subjects that are often considered dry. In my area, Mathematics, stories about important historic figures help students to understand past struggles in mathematical thought. Personal narratives help me to connect with some of my students. I use story telling to inform my students about everything from why we learn about mathematics to how to properly take a final exam. Come to this session and share some of your own narratives and learn from your fellow colleagues.

Was it the death cries of white supremacy fearful of demographic change? Did the Democrats choose the wrong candidate in the primary? Or, do each of these singular causal analyses have limitations that obscure a clearer understanding of this election?

Our students come up with business ideas all the time, all across campus in all of the departments/programs we offer. Now we can offer them a way to learn about creating a business model for their idea to see if it's truly a great opportunity worth pursuing. The Entrepreneurship Certificate Program (ESHIP) is a 12-unit certificate offered in the Business Dept. that can be easily added to a student's studies and prepare them to launch or build upon their own enterprise. In this interactive and dynamic workshop, participants will be introduced to the newly revamped ESHIP program to learn how it can enhance student learning in any field. Attendees will also learn about lean entrepreneurial thinking and action, innovation, and business model generation to get a taste of what ESHIP courses are like. By 2020, nearly 50% of the workplace will be freelancers and independent contractors, which is another class of entrepreneurs who must understand the whole picture of running a business, even if that is only to promote your own brand. Understanding that there are SRJC resources to support entrepreneurial learning helps student success, individual development and larger community success as well.
