Is now a good time to get a PhD? We ask those who've done it

The number of Australian PhD graduates reached around 10,000 a year in 2019, twice as many as in 2005. However, the number of PhDs has been exceeding the available academic positions since as early as the mid-1990s. In 2020, universities purged around 10% of their workforce due to the pandemic, and many university careers are still vulnerable. Given these statistics, you might wonder if doing a PhD is still a good idea. Based on our discussions with PhD holders, there are still plenty...

Organizational Change is About Orchestrating Organizational Systems

In the previous blog we discussed the strategic shift from efficiency to effectiveness and the organizational implications from it. One implication is the ever-quickening pace of technology advancement, and how organizations position themselves to exploit that advancement at scale to adapt or create new capabilities and services. The key element here is “at scale.” New technology creates adoption curves, and these curves regulate the pace of an organization generating future value.

Vocabulary as Puzzle Pieces

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about vocabulary lately, and how many learners treat vocabulary as the sum total of language learning, as if memorizing a bunch of vocabulary was basically all you had to do to learn a language. It got me thinking about how these learners must be conceptualizing vocabulary, about what mental models they must be using. This led to thinking about metaphors, and what metaphors may be in their minds. Vocabulary as Building Blocks Referring to vocabulary as t...

Why do we remember more by reading in print vs. on a screen?

During the pandemic, many college professors abandoned assignments from printed textbooks and turned instead to digital texts or multimedia coursework. As a professor of linguistics, I have been studying how electronic communication compares to traditional print when it comes to learning. Is comprehension the same whether a person reads a text onscreen or on paper? And are listening and viewing content as effective as reading the written word when covering the same material? The answers to both ...

Why we remember more by reading rather than listening to audio or watching video

Reading print is generally more effective for learning than video or audio. Luis Alvarez/Getty Images Comprehension differs when reading onscreen versus in print, and when listening to or viewing content. Factors like the tendency to multitask while consuming digital content contribute to this difference. Print is the best way to consume content in terms of concentration, learning, and remembering.

Neuroplasticity can be turned on and off in the brain of a fruit fly

Neuroplasticity – the ability of neurons to change their structure and function in response to experiences – can be turned off and on by the cells that surround neurons in the brain, according to a new study on fruit flies that I co-authored. The big idea As fruit fly larvae age, their neurons shift from a highly adaptable state to a stable state and lose their ability to change. During this process, support cells in the brain – called astrocytes – envelop the parts of the neurons that send an...

Three Human-Centered Imperatives For Our Tech-Enabled Future
