Dale Cyphert, department of management, will present "Teaching the System: Principles of Complexity as a Blueprint for Communication Pedagogy." Human society functions as a complex adaptive system, and what would educational practices look like if they were built on principles from the science of complexity? We've been doing some sensible things all along, but some assumptions about student learning need to be re-examined. Bring your lunch; cookies will be provided.
Graduate College Brown Bag Lecture Series: "A Stranglehold on Power: Explaining gubernatorial stability in Iowa”Submitted by Anonymous on Wed, 12/11/2013 - 1:00pm
Chris Larimer, department of political science, will present "A Stranglehold on Power: Explaining gubernatorial stability in Iowa." Since 1962, only two incumbent governors in Iowa have lost their reelection bids. Despite their long tenures, Governors Robert Ray, Terry Branstad and Tom Vilsack, all faced formidable challengers along the way, and all three retained office while dealing with serious declines in the state’s economy. This research seeks to gain a better understanding of gubernatorial stability in Iowa; in short, why modern Iowa governors are continually reelected despite what political science models say should happen.
