    Unique Spaces and Creative Communities: Diversify Your Space!

    in Education

    Our October 28th episode will feature guests: Catherine Brown (Inquiry librarian for lead, exhibits, and programs at UCLA Powell Library) & Amy Homma (Manager of Digital Learning Program, ARTLAB+ Hirshhorn).


    We will be discussing how to push the envelope and break barriers as it relates to teaching and learning in the 21st century. It can all be summed up to the term – exposure.  Exposing students and/or the university community to new ways of being creative to inspire and influence not only their respective audience, but colleagues and facilitators as well.  Our guests will speak upon their unique initiatives and how these ideas have been a benefit to their community.

    Klarchek Information Commons & Robert Seal, ACRL Academic Librarian of the Year

    in Education

    Robert Seal has demonstrated his commitment to developing the academic library in a number of ways. Known as a staunch advocate for international library cooperation, his ability to share information in a bilingual environment has made Seal a strong advocate for breaking down barriers and extending partnerships between libraries in the U.S. and Latin America. In addition, Seal is recognized both as a strong, visionary leader and as a caring mentor to new and experienced academic librarians. Having led libraries at a number of institutions, he is widely known for his commitment to hiring and developing innovative staff along with recognizing their contributions to the library and campus communities. Seal’s focus on developing human, along with physical, resources has earned him a reputation for re-envisioning the academic library. One of Seal’s major accomplishments is the planning and construction of the LEAF award-winning Loyola University Klarchek information Common.  Under Seal’s leadership and commitment to community engagement, the Klarchek Information Commons has placed the library at the heart of Loyola’s campus life and serves as an inspiration for similar projects at other institutions in Chicago and beyond.

    "New Heights Show on Education" Are Grades Important to Learning?

    in Education

    There are some schools who are abandoning giving grades to students as they believe that a simple letter or number does not demonstrate a student’s learning ability. However, majority of the schools in the US and other countries in general use report cards as a primary means of measuring a child’s progress in school. Reason being is that many schools and teachers believe that grades measure the student’s understanding in a specific subject.


    Today’s we are discussing whether students should be given grades in school and whether they are important or not when it comes to learning.


    Interview with Alfie Kohn: http://www.education.com/magazine/article/Grades_Any_Good/


    The New Heights Educational Group, Inc. promotes literacy for children and adults by offering a range of educational support services. Such services include: assisting families in the selection of schools; organization of educational activities; and acquisition of materials.
