A Future NPR Host in the HSPH Family

Ian Tosh, HSPH’s new manager for Media and Educational Technology Services (METS),  had an eventful Halloween.  Ian’s year-and-a-half old son Nolan shares his father’s enthusiasm for audio-visual devices and loves to play with an old microphone around the house.  An idea for a unique Halloween costume was hatched as his son also bears some resemblance to NPR’s OnPoint host Tom Ashbrook, a family favorite.

Halloween costume!

When the costume was a big hit in his neighborhood, Ian decided to send Tom a photo of the young broadcaster.   This led to two NPR blog posts, hundreds of Facebook “likes,” and a gracious invitation to tour the NPR studio and meet Tom.

Enjoy the articles below!

Global Climate Change Course Offering

During the Spring 2 semester, HSPH is collaborating with Harvard’s Extension School on a distance learning pilot.  The course on global climate change is taught by Professor Aaron Bernstein and a number of guest lecturers.  The pilot offers the course both as a residential course at HSPH and also as a distance learning course through the Harvard Extension School.

The course uses a mixture of equipment from HSPH and from Extension School.  As part of this pilot, we installed some additional production lighting and audio equipment in Kresge G2 to improve overall production quality.

Professor Bernstein introduces the course at the first session.

Extension School students may view lectures either live or on-demand.

On the technical-side, HSPH’s Sarah Bearse, Christopher Riley, Mike Demarco and Erin Leveille are working with Division of Continuing Education colleagues Christian Wisewarver, Rod Linheim, and James Peregrino on the project.
