Harvard Club of Cincinnati Annual Meeting and Dinner
Monday, February 23, 2015
The Phoenix, downtown
5:30 Annual Meeting of Members for Election of 2015-16 Board, 7 pm Dinner

Lightning has struck our fair city!  Mark your calendars and prepare to welcome Peter K. Bol, Carswell Professor of East Asian Languages and Civilizations, and the University’s first-ever Vice Provost for Advances in Learning. It is rare to have a University decision-maker of this caliber visit our area. Take full advantage and come out to meet Dr. Bol and hear about the cutting-edge of higher education.

His appointment in 2013 further catalyzed Harvard’s longstanding commitment to being a leader in learning, improving teaching on campus and online, advancing pedagogical research, and expanding access to knowledge across the globe.

As Vice Provost he provides oversight to HarvardX, the University-wide effort to create and implement research-enabled online learning experiences, and the Harvard Initiative for Learning and Teaching (HILT). His focus is on supporting faculty innovation and sharing best practices across schools, departments, and related programs.

Bol himself is active in new forms of learning, co-creating ChinaX, a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) that covers 4,000 years of Chinese history over 15 months, and utilizing a blended-learning approach to teach his related on-campus course. He is a former chair of Harvard’s Academic Computing Committee and played an instrumental role in the creation of the Center for Geographic Analysis.

John Rosenberg, our honored guest from Harvard Magazine last year, has written extensively about Bol over the last fifteen years or so and has recently covered many of the controversies surrounding the “disruption” of higher education through technology, from faculty concern about the role of virtual versus face-to-face education, the licensing and productizing of courses and intellectual content, and the protection of student data and privacy.

Reservations will open in January.  Questions can be directed to VP Couper Gardiner, cgardiner@cinci.rr.com.


Monthly Interest Groups

Harvard Club of Cincinnati Book Club
7:30 p.m. at the Bronte Bistro in Joseph Beth Bookstore
2692 Madison Road, Cincinnati, OH 45208

Thursday, December 4, 2014. In keeping with the fall and winter holidays this year, we will be reading several short stories:  "The Thanksgiving Visitor," "A Christmas Memory," and "One Christmas," by Truman Capote. These three stories appear in one particular book:  A Christmas Memory: One Christmas, and The Thanksgiving Visitor (Modern Library) which is inexpensively available at Amazon.com.  The stories also appear in other collections of Capote's work and are available at our public libraries.

Review:  Taking its place next to Breakfast at Tiffany's and In Cold Blood on the Modern Library bookshelf is this new and original edition of Capote's most famous short stories: "A Christmas Memory, " "One Christmas, " and "A Thanksgiving Memory." All three stories are distinguished by Capote's delicate interplay of childhood sensibility and recollective vision.
