Have you heard all the chatter about "big data" lately? Do you know what it is? Or what issues are at stake with the capture and analysis of these numbers? (You can see President Susan Fuhrman's (Ph.D. '77) recent thoughts on the privacy component here and here.) What are the ways "big data" is affecting education and the work being done at TC? The truth is, "big data" probably impacts your life more than you know, and it's certainly influencing many fields of study here at the College – especially Data Analytics, Professor Ryan Baker's field of expertise! If you're interested learning more about this hot topic and his research regarding the intersection of educational data mining (EDM) and human-computer interaction, please come join us in London on May 28. Baker will be speaking at the "What the Research Says" Seminar Series at London Knowledge Lab and serving as a guest speaker for an intimate gathering of Teachers College alumni and guests at the London home of alumna Mariam Korangy (M.A. '98). Whether you're interested in big data, online learning environments, or simply a chance to mix and mingle with other alumni in the area, we hope you'll join us for this special day in London.

Our guide will be Cornell Professor David Silbey, a Cornell alumnus and military historian who has published widely on modern warfare and has long experience walking Civil War Battlefields. David Silbey is a military historian, focusing on modern warfare. Dr. Silbey's first book, The British Working Class and Enthusiasm for War, 1914-1916 was published by Taylor & Francis in 2005.

Pop-Up Concerts: American Contemporary Music Ensemble

Location:Columbia University
Morningside Campus
Miller Theatre

Info:Click Here to Visit Website.

Bring a friend, grab a drink, and join some of today’s most interesting performers onstage at Miller Theatre on select early evenings. The American Contemporary Music Ensemble presents works from fast-rising star Timo Andres, whose music “achieves an unhurried grandeur that has rarely been felt in American music since John Adams came on the scene” (The New Yorker). The program draws inspiration from diverse sources, including Schumann’s solo piano works and February weather in New England. The four sections of Thrive on Routine—“Morning,” “Potatoes,” “Passacaglia,” and “Coda”—are modeled after a description of composer Charles Ives' daily schedule, which involved rising early to dig potatoes and play Bach. Concert starts at 6 p.m. Admissison is on a first-come, first-served basis, and doors open at 5:30 p.m.
