A Chat with Dr. Howard Gardner of Harvard University, Winner of the 2015 Brock Prize in Education

Aired on Friday, March 20th.

On this installment of ST, we speak with Dr. Howard Gardner, a Professor of Education at Harvard University, who is the 2015 Brock International Prize in Education Laureate. Well-regarded worldwide for his groundbreaking work in psychology, Gardner is best known for his theory of "multiple intelligences," which basically sees intelligence as multi-dimensional rather than as a singular trait or quality. This theory has -- over the past generation or so -- become a mainstream concept in the both the teaching of education and the learning philosophy of schools everywhere, and it's the basis for literally hundreds of books and articles on intelligence and/or education. The Brock International Prize in Education is awarded annually here in Tulsa; it recognizes individuals who have made a specific innovation or important contribution vis a vis the field of education. Dr. Gardner -- who talks about both his life and work with us on today's show -- will be formally honored at the annual Brock Prize Symposium, which will happen at 7:30pm on Tuesday, March 24th, at TU's Reynolds Center (at 3208 E. 8th Street). At this event, Dr. Gardner will also deliver a keynote speech.
