LeMura Presentation at Cornell on "Magis and Moocs"


On Monday, July 21, President Linda LeMura gave a presentation to Cornell University's Administrative Management Institute. The title of her talk was "Magis and Moocs: The Challenges of Contemporary Jesuit Education." The abstract of the talk: "A confluence of factors has and will continue to impact the higher education landscape, primarily driven by issues of affordability, the role of technology in education, economic and workforce development, and boosting institutional performance. An amalgam of political and economic forces have conspired to call into question the very purpose of higher education and, in particular, the role of a liberal arts education in the twenty-first century. These critical issues (and others) will be discussed in relation to the need for leaders to demonstrate the unequivocal link between an educated citizenry and economic prosperity."

notesOf the many extraordinary opportunities students have at Le Moyne, one of the most significant is the potential for collaborative research with faculty. In these projects, undergraduate students share ideas and background reading with individual faculty members. Students conduct literature searches, formulate hypotheses, and design experiments. They administer research, make evidence-based inferences, and analyze results. Psychology Honors student Christina Nicolais illustrates the fruits of these remarkable collaborations.

Mary:

It was wonderful to read about your participation in the World's Parliment of Religion. No one is more worthy of representing Le Moyne College and indigenous peoples than you. Reading this story made me remember you are the most influential teacher I ever had. I wish I could have joined you.

If you plan a presentation on your trip and the accomplishments of the parliment, I would love to come. In the meantime, I will visit their website.

I always pray for our world and the joy peace for all would bring.

Dr. Smith

When a mathematician or a software engineer thinks about “complexity,” they may envision streams of equations or program code. For Le Moyne College’s Dr. Sherilyn Smith of the biological sciences department, complexity is a concept illuminated in wonderful ways by phenomena not nearly so abstract, and indeed, often a subject of distaste — insects.
