Female students show a stronger preference for contributing to remote classes via text chat than their male counterparts, according to peer-reviewed research published in PLOS One, an open-access journal. Researchers also found all students were more likely to use the chat function to support or amplify their peers’ comments than to diminish them. Given these findings, the researchers suggested incorporating text chats into class discussions could boost female participation in large introductory science classrooms, where women are less likely to participate than men.

Most workers are thinking of quitting. The real surprise is what's forcing them to leave - Jada Jones, ZD Net
Riding the coattails of last year's Great Resignation, employees are demanding more out of their employers than ever. But according to an external survey conducted by Amazon, younger workers don't feel their employers are delivering, with 74% saying they are likely to quit their job in the next year - due to a lack of development opportunities. In a survey of 3,000 US professionals conducted by Amazon and Workplace Intelligence, 64% of employees said they feared losing their job due to new skills requirements for which they have not been equipped. A further 58% of employees said they were worried that their skills had gone stale since the pandemic, while 70% reported feeling unprepared for the future of work.

Building and maintaining a successful and dynamic continuing and professional education portfolio can be a daunting proposition. It requires, in equal measure, old-world prognostication and new-world data analysis, an understanding of learner audiences past, present and future, and an appreciation for the institution’s mission, goals for equity and access, and the potential for new revenue streams. At the University of Arizona’s office of Continuing and Professional Education (CaPE), we approach this challenge with three key principles in mind: relevancy & demand, institutional alignment and balance.

Leadership. For as much as it's discussed in business-school textbooks and TED talks, there's a lot of confusion over what it is and why it matters. And with talk about 'headless organizations' and 'flat hierarchies' becoming so common, you might wonder whether leadership will even matter in a few decades. We had some of the same questions, so we got in touch with Jacob Morgan. Jacob is a trained futurist and one of the world’s leading authorities on leadership, the future of work, and employee experience. He is also the best-selling author of four books: The Future Leader, The Employee Experience Advantage, The Future of Work, and The Collaborative Organization.

Dall-E is at the forefront of artificial intelligence art creation, which anyone can use. AI art generators have been in the news a lot this year, be it for their amazing advances or questionable uses. OpenAI’s Dall-E 2 is one of the major names in this space. It's now open to the public and developers, and soon it’ll be built into Microsoft software and the Bing search engine. But how, exactly, do you work with Dall-E? Is it really as simple as typing in a description—called a prompt—and getting back a picture? To be honest, yes. But there’s a lot more to be aware of if you want to get anywhere close to the perfect result.
