This Week In Ideas Shared With Panopto — March 20, 2015
“You’ve got to see this.”
It’s a statement with a thousand possibilities. It may be the excited announcement of a colleague, ready to show off a new discovery. It could be the helpful smile of a co-worker, happy to share a reliable resource. It could even be a command from above, coupled with updated compliance information.
Whatever the case, more and more often, whatever it is you’ve just gotta see, what you end up watching is video.
As video continues to prove its worth as a tool for sharing information and ideas, more and more organizations are finding new opportunities to utilize video all across their day to day work. Today video helps to scale employee training and onboarding, records and preserves institutional knowledge and subject matter expertise for social learning, makes events more accessible and internal communications more engaging, and helps document processes, technologies, and procedures in more complete detail than was ever possible with text alone.
All of which means more and more organizations are creating more and more video — by 2018, forecasts Gartner Research, 75% of workers at large organizations will interact with various kinds of video more than three times daily.
This week we saw more and more people taking advantage of the power of video to share ideas, send messages, and make a statement. And in the spirit of passing it on, these are just a few of the ideas shared this week with Panopto’s video recording software.
Variable Feast: From Everest to Emergency Surgery
Critical illness occurs when organ function fails acutely: death is common. Better supportive therapies have improved survival, but specific interventions to treat critical illness have been largely unsuccessful. Drugs that showed promise in bench-top and animal studies have failed in human studies. To overcome this barrier, some critical care researchers now focus their attention on studying humans under conditions that mimic critical illness. Join Mike Grocott, Professor of Anaesthesia and Critical Care Medicine at the University of Southampton and a consultant in Critical Care Medicine at University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust, for this recorded presentation about exploring variation in two human models that may teach us more about critical illness: healthy humans ascending to altitude and patients undergoing major surgery.
Finding Solutions in Marine Conservation — A Reason for Ocean Optimism?
If marine conservation is truly important then why is it at the bottom of the political agenda? Is the conservation community failing in selling the conservation message to the general public? A growing body of research that indicates that many people — especially children — feel anxious or hopeless about the state of the planet and their ability to effect positive change. Unfortunately, environmental narratives — both mainstream media and scientific — are focused on “doom and gloom” stories, which frighten, disempower and disengage people. Mistakenly, the conservation community often buys into this approach, in the belief that more information about how bad things are will spur people to action. In this guest lecture, Dr Heather Koldewey explores how we might adopt different, positive and hopeful ways to engage people in marine conservation, leading to changes in behaviour and a more sustainable relationship with the ocean.
Statistical Analysis of Data from Acoustic Tags
Statistical analysis of data from multi-sensor acoustic tags presents several characteristic challenges. Datasets generally include time-series of many measurements on a small number of individuals; different data streams often have distinct temporal resolutions and precisions. The MOCHA project (Multi-study Ocean acoustics Human effects Analysis) is a three-year effort focused on developing innovative statistical methods for such data. In this presentation, Dr. Stacy DeRuiter of Calvin College presents several approaches for appropriate, effective statistical analysis of such datasets, with an emphasis on quantitative assessment of changes in marine mammal behavior in response to acoustic disturbance.
At medical schools all across the US, today is the day everyone’s been waiting for — Match Day! Every year on the 3rd Friday of March, Match Day brings the announcement of the results of the National Resident Matching Program. By entering the Match system, applicants are contractually obligated to go to the residency, internship or fellowship program at the institution to which they were matched. The same applies to the programs; they are obligated to take the applicants who matched into them. For med students across the country, today is the first step on their new careers in medicine. It’s quite an event — follow along with all the proceedings at the University of Pittsburgh and the University of Arizona, as both stream their Match Day announcements live over the web.
