Congratulations, Class of 2015

Seventeenth-century poet Anne Bradstreet declared, “If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.” Most New Englanders can relate and, on May 29—closing an academic year marked by a barrage of blizzards and a slow-coming spring—Nobles graduated 124 members of the Class of 2015 under sunny skies.

Every year, students look forward to Art Street, a time to try their hand at all things artistic, while benefiting numerous non-profit organizations. This year's fundraising efforts also included aid for the victims of the earthquakes in Nepal, as part of a larger effort that has raised more than $1,300 to date.

Faculty Member Considers Cognitive Science, Implications for Teaching

History faculty member Mike Kalin is a regular contributor to WBUR's Cognoscenti. In July 2015, Cognoscenti featured his piece, "Changing Minds: Disocveries in Cognitive Science Can Reshape the Way We Teach."

"New data casts doubt on the efficacy of a common teaching technique that dates back thousands of years to the first European universities: the lecture," writes Kalin." A landmark study published in 2014 found that undergraduate students in a class with traditional stand-and-deliver lectures are 1.5 times more likely to fail than students in classes that used active learning techniques."

Report from the summer

G - Alphabet Project

Just read about a great project that is happening up in Fitchburg. The definition of public art is being turned on its head. Instead of occupying a physical space within the city, Anna Schuleit Haber is working with The Fitchburg Sentinel and Enterprise newspaper to create a series of artworks that explores typography and the history of the city that will run on the newpaper’s front page for 26 days. Beautiful innovation that engages the local community!

You can read more about the project in the Boston Globe: Globe

And you can see the project more directly at the Fitchburg Art Museum: FAM
