  1. "We assume that private enterprise generates what is so casually called “innovation” all by itself. It does not. The Web browser you are using to read this essay was invented at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The code that makes this page possible was invented at a publicly funded academic research center in Switzerland. That search engine you use many times a day, Google, was made possible by a grant from the National Science Foundation to support Stanford University. You didn’t get polio in your youth because of research done in the early 1950s at Western Reserve University School of Medicine.* California wine is better because of the University of California at Davis. Hollywood movies are better because of UCLA. And your milk was not spoiled this morning because of work done at the University of Wisconsin at Madison.

    These things did not just happen because someone saw a market opportunity and investors and inventors rushed off to meet it. That’s what happens in business-school textbooks. In the real world, we roll along, healthy and strong, in the richest nation in the world because some very wise people decided decades ago to invest in institutions that serve no obvious short-term purpose. The results of the work we do can take decades to matter—if at all. Most of what we do fails. Some succeeds. The system is terribly inefficient. And it’s supposed to be that way."

  3. The Mind, Matter & Media Lab (M3Lab) is a Learning Sciences research lab at the University of Calgary, Canada, directed by Prof. Pratim Sengupta, Research Chair of STEM Education, and Associate Professor of Learning Sciences. Until Aug 2015, we were located at Vanderbilt University's Peabody College. Doctoral students working in the lab are enrolled in doctoral programs both at the University of Calgary and Vanderbilt University.

  4. Radio epiSTEMology is an ongoing research and creation project for exploring our emerging identities in an ever-changing world of computing and technoscience, a world often represented by the term STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).

    Here on the Radio EpiSTEMology team we want to know how radio and podcast experiences can be STEM experiences. We explore, research and create audio design and listening opportunities that open up new ways of connecting with STEM knowledge and communities for students, teachers, parents and publics.
     
    Our featured podcast episodes for the week can be found here: STEM Radio Hour and Teacher Podcast Series.
     
    Funding for this project is provided by the Taylor Institute for Teaching and Learning at the University of Calgary, the Werklund School of Education - University of Calgary, and the Imperial Oil Foundation.

  9. publications on MOOCs that were produced at the 29 UK universities connected to the FutureLearn MOOC platform. Bringing these papers together, and considering them as a body of related work, reveals a set of nine priority areas for MOOC research and development. We suggest that these priority areas could be used to develop a strategic approach to learning at scale
