Making Body Language Your Superpower - an instructional video on using body language effectively. Presented by Stanford graduate students Matt Levy, Colin Bailie, Jeong Joon Ha, and Jennifer Rosenfeld. Created as an exemplary final project in Lecturer JD Schramm's Strategic Communication course in March 2014. Body language - both the speaker's and the audience's - is a powerful form of communication that is difficult to master, especially if the speaker is nervous. This video will teach you how to use your body language effectively, even if you are nervous. This video will also show you how to read the audience's body language and what you should do when they look bored or disconnected from the presentation. Use these tools to enhance your nonverbal communication abilities and better conne...

http://democracynow.org - Stanford University students are demanding change in faculty diversity. Stanford’s faculty is 73 percent white and 73 percent male, while less than half the undergraduate student body is white. The student diversity effort, called Who’s Teaching Us?, grew out of Stanford’s Asian American Activism Committee in 2014 when the Stanford English Department denied tenure to a queer Asian-American scholar, a trusted mentor among the student community. The movement has since expanded to include all students of color and marginalized identities. Who’s Teaching Us? recently issued a list of 25 demands to the administration, including increased diversity among faculty and the curriculum, residential space and other programs that meet the needs of students of color, and dives...
After learning new software and programming languages, Stanford students in the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory have an opportunity to choose a creative task and design a robot to perform the task for demonstration. The tasks call for a wide range of fundamental skills, but generally require the robot to sense where it is in space, detect objects around it, and then autonomously interact with those objects in its environment. Recent projects include dominoes, playing the xylophone, and sketching out an image.
Stanford University reduces student loans for graduates who teach in underserved communities. The new Dorothy Durfee Avery Loan Forgiveness Program at Stanford's School of Education offers to ease the burden for any eligible graduate of the STEP Program who teaches in a public school or a private school in an underserved community. The program was established by a gift from Judy Avery, '59, and named in honor of her mother, who was a teacher. Her gift will be matched by the university, bringing the program fund to $20 million.
