Math Geek Mom: In A Manner of Speaking

http://www.insidehighered.com/sites/default/server_files/styles/blog_landing/public/mama_phd_blog_header.jpg?itok=C5xGPD1aBy Rosemarie Emanuele.

It gives the student a new way of speaking about the world, and a precise way of making their thoughts known. Read more...

Math Geek Mom: Ambition in Many Dimensions

http://www.insidehighered.com/sites/default/server_files/styles/blog_landing/public/mama_phd_blog_header.jpg?itok=C5xGPD1aBy Rosemarie Emanuele. I love teaching Multivariate Calculus for many reasons. It is the piece of math that most reflects my training as an economist, is the area that is most open to bringing up topics relating to economics, and is, in fact, the area that allows me to teach undergraduate students techniques I learned in my Ph.D. program.

Math Geek Mom: Food Shopping

http://www.insidehighered.com/sites/default/server_files/styles/blog_landing/public/mama_phd_blog_header.jpg?itok=C5xGPD1aBy Rosemarie Emanuele. While I know that my daughter will probably not become an economist someday, I found myself teaching her some important concepts in theoretical and empirical economics recently. She sought to compare prices of goods in two different stores, and I was there to help her find products that could be honestly compared. Read more...

http://www.insidehighered.com/sites/default/server_files/styles/blog_landing/public/library_babel_fish_blog_header.jpg?itok=qNL3hM7KBy Barbara Fister. So, let’s say I’m doing research on issues related to privilege and inequality. Google Scholar tells me there’s a an article on stratification in higher education that’s looks interesting.

Open Access Without Tears

http://www.insidehighered.com/sites/default/server_files/styles/blog_landing/public/library_babel_fish_blog_header.jpg?itok=qNL3hM7KBy Barbara Fister. Let’s say you’re an academic who needs to develop a record of scholarship, either because you are up for tenure, you hope someday to be in a secure academic job, or you need to bring in grant dollars to support the research you do.

Thursday in the Park With Students

http://www.insidehighered.com/sites/default/server_files/styles/blog_landing/public/library_babel_fish_blog_header.jpg?itok=qNL3hM7KBy Barbara Fister. It’s always inspiring to learn about new research from scholars who share their discoveries with excitement and passion at the best conferences. I had this experience last week. What was unusual was that the researchers were students just a few weeks into their first college semester. And the venue was a great urban park. Read more...

Agile Marketing: Right For Your University?

Last spring, Gettysburg College made the decision to use agile marketing as a framework for our planning after my colleague attended a session on this topic at the American Marketing Association Symposium on Higher Education. What she took away from that session changed the way our office planned, collaborated, and executed projects across the board. More...

Do International Students Need Special Marketing Materials?

By Megan Brenn-White. The answer must be no, right? Wouldn’t creating special marketing just for international students imply that we’re somehow not a truly global institution?
It’s not just a theoretical issue. More...
