Moral perception does not exist...the evidence in its favor fails to support it @chazfirestone vs @jayvanbavel

  • The findings indicated that this occurs because individuals who learn together in groups tend to converge on similar information, limiting the overall amount of information that can be learned by the group.

  • The new $55 million building on Rutgers University’s George H. Cook campus in New Brunswick was designed with open workspaces and laboratories that are intended to foster the interdisciplinary work that’s necessary to tackle some of the biggest challenges in public health, such as reducing childhood obesity.

  • Honors Core course
  • a capstone project by writing a thesis in their area of major.

  • close collaboration between scientists and engineers.
  • Michael Crow, who took over as president of ASU in 2002
  • layering new institutes on top of traditional departments, for example.

  • ASU’s charter calls for the university to be measured “not by whom its excludes, but by whom it includes and how they succeed”.
  • it is held accountable as a “public good” for its contribution to the economic, social and cultural health and wellbeing of its community.

  • the world’s first academic center to combine hospitality, design, health policy and management.
  • “It’s transdisciplinary, in the sense that it’s generating a whole new field, rather than having different disciplines work in parallel.

Progress and challenges in probing the human brain - my new review with Martha Farah

  • The current care systems cannot do the job. Trying harder will not work. Changing systems of care will.

  • The health care system as currently structured does not, as a whole, make the best use of its resources.

  • At no time in the history of medicine has the growth in knowledge and technologies been so profound.

  • None of us would likely think that the delivery of health care is simple, but it isn’t complicated either – it’s complex. We fall into the trap of thinking the delivery of care as a linear process – if we construct our systems of delivery as A, and utilize processes B, that we should get outcome C somewhat predictably.
  • he difference is those people… they introduce social factors into the processes and structures of health care delivery, along with emotional states and varying levels of competence and performance – all of which can have an incredibly unpredictable impact on results. This is compounded by inefficient information sharing, and decisions being made, at times, distant from the action.
  • away from hierarchical, to more heterarchical structures

  • characterize healthcare activities in terms of complex systems theory
  • We propose a theoretical lens for understanding and studying complexity in healthcare systems based on degrees of interrelatedness of system components.
  • degrees of interrelatedness of system components

  • This paper argues for three principal theses: first, to invoke complexity, to refer to complex systems, is to proffer a form of explanation; second, in the context of the social sciences, the form of explanation that complexity represents belongs to a family of explanations which the recent theoretical literature associates with social mechanisms; and, third, complexity explanations refer to a specific type of social mechanism, whose features differentiate it from the other members of the family.
  • to invoke complexity, to refer to complex systems, is to proffer a form of explanation
  • Concepts in complexity are frequently psychologised: a theory which excludes intentionality is transformed into a theory of motivation and shared decision making.

  • descriptive and evaluative paragraph
  • inform the reader of the relevance, accuracy, and quality of the sources cited.
  • Annotations are descriptive and critical; they expose the author's point of view, clarity and appropriateness of expression, and authority.

  • select a number of different sources related to a particular topic and to summarize and evaluate the findings. For example, a nursing student who is studying techniques for IV insertion in pediatric patients may select the 15 most recent articles on the topic and analyze these articles to determine trends or best practices.
