The Discussion Project is a new professional development initiative created at the UW–Madison School of Education to help instructors both facilitate high-quality classroom discussions and prepare their students to participate in them. “Discussion-rich classrooms are valuable because students hear multiple perspectives and learn how to engage civilly with those holding opposing views, and that’s an important skill in a democracy,” says School of Education Dean Diana Hess.

UW-Madison began revitalizing the summer experience in 2016 with a significant increase in scholarship funding. The goal was to encourage more students to take advantage of accelerated summer courses so they could graduate on time and avoid the expense of extra semesters. Building on these successes in 2018, UW–Madison will serve a wider range of students during the summer months. Current undergraduates, incoming freshmen, students visiting from other institutions, high school students, and others will benefit from the university’s world-class resources.

Falk Distinguished Chair of Education. In the column, Hess writes about the importance of education scholars speaking up and participating in public debates about their issues of expertise. She frames partaking in political debate as a responsibility and a way to give back to the community and the universities that support them.

The work of UW-Madison’s Simon Goldberg was recently featured by the University of California, Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center in its annual list of the "Top 10 Insights from the Science of a Meaningful Life in 2017." The results from Goldberg’s paper, "Mindfulness-based interventions for psychiatric disorders," stood out among the hundreds of studies that were on this center’s radar. Goldberg's paper was a major research review of 142 non-overlapping studies that found mindfulness-based interventions hold promise as evidence-based treatments for psychiatric disorders, but not for everyone or for every condition. Goldberg recently completed his Ph.D. with UW-Madison’s Department of Counseling Psychology and will be joining that department as an assistant professor in August.
