Darlene Crone-Todd PhD BF Skinner Foundation Board
Happy Holiday week 2022Today's guest is Darlene Crone-Todd from the BF Skinner Foundation.As my audience my know, my first career was a dolphin trainer at the Gulfarium in Ft.  Walton Beach Fl. I have been used the BF Skinner teaching methods for not just dolphins but in teaching swimming, teaching my employees, and managing my various businesses. I am thrilled to introduce this amazing group of people carrying the light of the positive reinforcement torch on today.  My very special guest today is Darlene Crone-Todd from the BF Skinner Foundation from Harvard. She is a full time professor in Psychology at the Salem University from Salem, MA.  What would you like to learn? How were you taught in school? Do you remember the material well? There are different teaching techniques. And, to a varying degree they can be effective. However, study after study from BF Skinner demonstrated how the principals of learning (positive, variable schedules, shaping, extinguishing,) have stood the test of time across human demographics and species. What are these techniques?As a student, what type of teaching technique would you prefer? Do you want a positive environment with quick progress? What would that look like? This type of teaching shapes the learning into small steps for the quickest progress. It's by breaking down the learning (either physical i.e. ice skating or mental i.e research papers) that the students can enjoy the process as well as the instructor. They both get positive reinforcement from the interaction and exchange of knowledge?   Studies are demonstrating that employees are not always happy in the workplace. How can we have a better work environment? What is "positive" anyway? Does it work for anyone. If you are a manager, how can you be more effective? To answer these questions, and many more tune into this essential Sunday Coffee podcast for a Happy 2023!

Place & Prosperity: How cities help us to connect and innovate: by William Fulton
Place & Prosperity: How cities help us to connect and innovate: by William Fulton Published by Island Press 2022Where are you from? Where do you live? These are the two most common and powerful questions we ask and answer to each other. It's deeply personal to our sense of identity and place in a community. What is this "place" we call home? How do places come into being? Why do we long to go back "home" ? Or, do we want to explore and find a new community? Mr. Fulton has these questions too and he has learned a few lessons along the way -coming from a small town and then traveling the world. This book is his own life long lessons and answers searching for "the place". How they are shaped and how we can change them. Why community would you like to live in? A daily walkable city to you job and supermarket or would you still prefer connect via car? In national surveys again and again it was a 50/ 50 split. In our conversation we discuss what it means to create places like these and why they come into reality. I hope you'll enjoy this conversation with your hot cuppa this morning.

Exercises in Architecture: Learning to Think Like As Architect by Simon Unwin

Exercises in Architecture: Learning to Think Like As Architect by Simon Unwin
Exercises in Architecture: learning to think like as architect   2nd Edition by Simon Unwin published by Routledge in 2023 Each art form has it's own language. While we may not equate architecture with written music, it is - just like it. As the author discusses from his own struggles with learning architecture, he discovered architecture anew while teaching it. How do we communicate? Does architecture communicate with us? The answer is yes if we are aware of it. It forms the basis for our daily lives in many humble and not so humble ways.Architecture informs our behaviors. It communicates ideas. Just like any other art form the language is distinct and all it's own.In this book (and his series of books) Simon explores how we come to learn communication. How we have lost the art of spaces and voids in our daily lives. It is an instinct that we can become aware of once more. There are principals to making better spaces for not just our homes but our spiritual places and work places.This book applies to more than architecture. It's about the bigger picture of urban design and landscape architecture too. This is a book of exercise for both studio architecture teachers and students who want to do more.Exercises in Architecture: learning to think like as architect   2nd Edition by Simon Unwin published by Routledge in 2023 Thank you for joining us on Sunday mornings with your hot cuppa tea or coffee.

No Farms, No Food by Don Stuart
No Farms, No Food Uniting Farmers and Environmentalists to Transform American Agriculture by Don StuartWhat happens when a farm fails? Sold? Retires? These are not easy answers but they can have devastating results for the communities and environment they serve. Mr. Stuart takes a good, hard, long look into the research and reality of the decisions we make about our food. We discuss the history of farms in the US. The  "why and how"  they landed there. And, the financial realities to make food. Real Estate - It's a balancing act. When a property is deemed more valuable with retail and housing the property value goes up. Farmers have to leverage their land in order to grow us food. It needs to be affordable for everyone. How do we balance the real estate pressures with our food?Climate -Farmers do care about the environment. Rain is very important to a farmer as well as the soils. They like to eat good food too. How do we strike a balance to have our cake and eat it too?There are many questions and this book offers some answers and a new perspective. Can we  use coalitions to protect our resources? How can we wisely leverage them for our survival and to cherish the the home planet that we all love: Earth. Don Stuart is a former director for AFT's Pacific Regional Office and has also served as executive director for the Washington Association of Conservation Districts and executive director for Salmon for Washington, a non-profit trade association. Stuart is the author of Barnyards and Birkenstocks: Why Farmers and Environmentalists Need Each Other.No Farms, No Food Uniting Farmers and Environmentalists to Transform American Agriculture by Don StuartThank you for joining us on Sunday mornings with your hot cuppa tea or coffee.

Latour for Architects by Albena Yaneva
Latour for Architects by Albena Yaneva published by Routledge in 2022This book is an introduction to Bruno Latour. He is a leading figure in Social Sciences today. In the past decade his Action-Network Theory (ANT) has gained much popularity in the field of architecture. This book discusses his philosophy and how it applies to specific methods of new thinking in architecture and design pedagogy. It demonstrates these methods in practical examples of architectural practice and urban design. This book argues for the ANT-inspired approach to architecture and how the methodological insights can outline new research avenues in the field. The book draws on the world of architectural practice and how it can re-order the world to handle human and nonhuman collective life. It re-examines the role of matter in design and redefines the forms of social, political, and ethical associations that bind us together in cities. This interview discusses the role of landscape architecture too.

Schools That Heal: Design with Mental Health in Mind by Claire Latane
Schools That Heal: Design with Mental Health in Mind by Claire Latane Published by Island Press in 2021In Schools That Heal: Design with Mental Health in Mind,  landscape architecture professor Claire Latane argues that for schools to be supportive learning environments, they must be designed with students mental and physical health in mind. Backed by decades of research, Latane shows how schools that nurture a sense of belonging, providing nature-full spaces, and inspire awe improve students' academic performance and reduce stress, anxiety, disorderly conduct, and crime. Latane highlights ten inspiring examples of schools around the world designed with mental health in mind. In Japan, a community decimated by a tsunami incorporated a wetland into the school landscape to reconnect students with nature. At Sandy Hook Elementary, an inclusive design process helped create a new school that would be a place of healing and learning.  The book also addresses how schools can support students and teachers post-COVID with building elements like large windows for natural ventilation and outdoor learning spaces.
