Language Sciences Come to Life at COSI

Combining the natural interest many people have in language with engaging hands-on experiments has been a winning formula for the Language Sciences Pod - one of three pods that comprise the Labs in Life exhibit, a partnership between Ohio State and COSI that provides the public with a chance to watch and participate in real research as it happens.

The Arts Come Alive

It’s doubly fitting that the 25th anniversary exhibition at the Wexner Center for the Arts is titled Transfigurations. Transfigurations includes works of Pablo Picasso, Alberto Giacometti and Jean Dubuffet, among other significant 20th-century artists who are part of Leslie and Abigail Wexner’s personal collection. It so happens that right across the plaza from the Wexner Center, Ohio State’s academic arts program is celebrating a transfiguration of its own. On the same weekend Transfigurations opens at the Wex, there will be a ribbon-cutting and more festive celebration for the grand re-opening of the spectacularly renovated Sullivant Hall.

Forget Cat Photos: This Prof Is Making Calculus Go Viral

Assistant Professor of Mathematics Jim Fowler was featured by Forbes for his popular calculus MOOC (massive open online course). Fowler’s first six-week course, Calculus One, attracted 35,000 active enrollees. Since then more than 110,000 additional students have started the 23-hour course, putting it in the top 3% of Coursera’s offerings.
