Kathy Lund Dean (Economics & Management) interviewed Ann Welsh (Univ. of Cincinnati), lead author of "Combining critical reflection and design thinking to develop integrative learners" for a podcast sponsored by Sage and the Journal of Management Education. Available online, Lund Dean and Welsh discuss how design thinking pedagogy can transform learning by connecting real world business needs with design studio creativity. Welsh and her co-author, Gordon Dehler (College of Charleston), are award-winning authors and this manuscript is the first management pedagogical article sharing design thinking's promise for transformative teaching and learning. Lund Dean also served as the editor for the paper for the Journal of Management Education.
Pamela Kittelson (Biology and Environmental Studies) was awarded a NSF Research Opportunity Award ($25,000) to support research with one Gustavus student and colleagues at the University of Minnesota and the Chicago Botanic Garden. With support from the Environmental Studies faculty, Kittelson wrote a LEEF (LiCor Environmental Education Fund) matching grant ($52,120) to obtain an ecophysiology instrument for use in biology and ES courses as well as research. Her paper titled, “Morphological and ecological segregation of two sympatric Lomatium triternatum varieties in Montana,” was accepted for publication in Madroño, a journal of western botany. The paper was a collaborative effort with Peter Lesica (U of Montana), Laura Lynch (’09) and Donald Davis (’11).
Seán Easton's (Classics) article, ""The Old Vines are Buried Deep:" Classical Motifs in John Frankenheimer's Seconds" was published this month in Illinois Classical Studies 37 (2012).
