dc.description.abstractPERSUASION: WHY WE DO IT. WHAT IT TAKES TO DO IT WELL. AND WHY WE SHOULD CARE | From the pulpit to legislative chambers to corporate offices, the ability to convince others to follow a cause, support a certain idea or purchase a specific product is a valuable skill. How do we best use rhetoric to capture an audience, sway the undecided and convert the opposition? Creighton faculty examine the art of persuasion. Page 14.en_US
dc.description.abstractTHE PROMISE & PITFALLS OF BIG DATA / THE PROMISE AND PITFALLS OF BIG DATA | Big data has profound implications for consumers and a range of industries. While the use of large amounts of data may provide big promise, there are also pitfalls, such as the epic cyber attack at Target last year that resulted in millions of stolen credit card numbers. Creighton faculty take a look at the good and bad of big data. Page 18.en_US
dc.description.abstractA QUESTION OF HOW WE LEARN | Education has advanced peoples and civilizations since the dawn of humankind. So how do we, as humans, best learn?

dc.description.abstractGiving Hope a Hand | Through the Mechanical Hand Project Group, Jorge Zuniga, Ph.D., assistant professor of exercise science, is using 3-D printing technology to research and design low-cost mechanical hands for those who need them, particularly children.
