EXPLO is excited to welcome Laurie Santos, professor of psychology and cognitive sciences at Yale University, to our growing network of dynamic and innovative thought leaders.
Laurie Santos Keynote
- Yale University Professor Laurie Santos, Ph.D., delivered the keynote address to more than 300 students at EXPLO's inaugural CORE Day. Dr. Santos is the head of Silliman College, a residential college at Yale University, and has most recently been in the news for her course, "Psychology and the Good Life" — a course offered to first year Yale students that instantly became the most popular course in the University's 317-year history. Students then participated in breakout sessions to explore topics and build skills that will help them develop their strengths and interests as they prepare for college.
Bill Littlefield, whose voice alone is nationally recognized as host on NPR’s Only A Game, will join EXPLO on the Yale campus as a visiting professor-of-practice during summer 2018.
Rolf Landua, Ph.D., is on a mission to change the landscape of science education. He chatted with EXPLO about the importance of curiosity in the classroom and how too much testing inhibits joyful learning — and deeper understanding of Nature and the universe.
With writing and producing credits including Steven Spielberg’s Hook, Francis Ford Coppola’s Bram Stoker’sDracula, and Brian Henson’s Muppet Treasure Island to his name, EXPLO welcomes acclaimed screenwriter J.V. Hart to campus in summer 2018.
EXPLO is pleased to announce its first Supreme Court Justice-in-Residence — Colorado Supreme Court Justice Richard Gabriel.
