Harvard@Home

The University-wide on-line learning initiative, Harvard@Home, has released several new programs.

“Living Healthier, Living Longer: Part III” presents the final segment of a two-day Alumni College event that examined the latest research on cancer, nutrition and dieting, exercise, and stress management. In the new segment, Daniel Federman, Walter Distinguished Professor of medicine, moderates two panel discussions: one featuring Kenan professor of psychology Daniel Schacter of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences (on the seven categories of memory “sins”) and associate professor of psychology Robert A. Stickgold of the medical school (on sleep, dreams, and memory); and the second on the risks and benefits of alternative medical care, with professor of medicine and of ambulatory care and prevention Julie Buring and associate professor of psychiatry Andrew A. Nierenberg.

Are you curious about what undergraduates have to say about their experiences at Harvard? “Students Speak” includes 10 students who candidly cover a wide range of topics: from study groups, libraries, interacting with faculty members, and competition among students, to living with roommates, living in Boston, finding time for extracurriculars, and political involvement on campus. The site will be updated with additional interviews over time.

Harvard@Home offers desktop access to a wide range of intellectual happenings throughout the University. Programs, which range from 10 minutes to three hours long, are free and available to the public. For more information, visit http://athome.harvard.edu.
