The Benefits of No-Tech Note Taking
Chronicle of Higher Education
The moment of truth for me came in the spring 2013 semester. I looked out at my visual-communication class and saw a group of six students transfixed by the blue glow of a video on one of their computers, and decided I was done allowing laptops in my large lecture class. “Done” might be putting it mildly. Although I am an engaging lecturer, I could not compete with Facebook and YouTube, and I was tired of trying. The next semester I told students they would have to take notes on paper. Period.

$5,200 or $5.2 Million? It's All in How It's Framed
New York Times
When Lady Hambleden moved from her stately manor to a cottage in a village outside London, she had little room, and even less desire, for the Aubusson carpets, Louis XV chairs, Regency girandoles, and lesser English paintings that populated her estate. So, in 2013, she held a kind of Downton Abbey tag sale at Christie’s in London. Among the three-hundred-plus items she put up for auction was an oil sketch that copied Salisbury Cathedral From the Meadows, one of the best-known works of the great nineteenth-century English landscape painter John Constable.

Why Has the Scholarly Journal Endured?
Exchanges
Last week marked the 350th anniversary of the first publication of a scholarly journal: Philosophical Transactions, edited by Henry Oldenburg and published, then as now, by the Royal Society. This publication "pioneered the concepts of scientific priority and peer review which, together with archiving and dissemination, provide the model for almost 30,000 scientific journals today." Given how much change is happening in the world of scholarly communication, we wondered: Why has the journal endured as a form of scholarly communication, and will it continue to thrive?

Study Discovers Power of Art Making on Mood
Phys.Org
For people who work with textiles to create art, whether it's knitting, quiltmaking, or needlework, it is likely no surprise that the activities aid in relaxation and improve mood. Ann Collier, assistant processor of psychological sciences, has first-hand experience with the phenomenon and the research to explain it. After having three children in about a year, Collier turned to making textiles as a means of coping. "It was the only relief I had, the only part of my life where I could finish something beautiful and have control," Collier said.

Navigating the Academic Conference with Social Anxiety
GradHacker
Academic conferences can be one of the most enjoyable experiences that you can have during graduate school. A paid-for trip, usually somewhere at least semiexotic, to allow you to talk about the kind of work that you are personally interested in — what's not to like about that? Well, for those of us who deal with anxiety in unfamiliar situations, attending an academic conference alone in a strange place without knowing anyone can be a difficult and demanding experience.
