STS.069危機世界中的科學技術

教學大綱 (英文PDF)、 (繁體PDF)、 (簡體PDF)、 (英文DOC)、 (繁體DOC)、 (簡體DOC)

本課程是一門探索性的領域,希望學生們在下列兩方面發揮積極的作用:形成問題,和定義他們希望深入探究的議題。基於這種探索精神,邀請了許多客座老師,提出他們的觀點。希望同學們成為積極的傾聽者和討論者,你們需要對客座老師的課做一些準備,也需要對客座老師提出的議題進行深入探索。

很多書面作業都是簡短精煉的,這些作業包括:對閱讀作業的評述,長約一段或一頁的書面評論並在課堂上朗讀,對關鍵字的定義進行簡短的討論。另有兩篇更長的作業:一、對學生所選的主題進行闡述,二、重要的班級專題:即針對「MIT在危機四伏的世界中的角色」這一主題,由全班撰寫一篇報告,每個學生承擔一部分。後面這篇報告計畫在課程結束時遞交MIT管理層。每個學生獨立完成的作論文可以修改一次。

成績基於短篇作業(25%), 學生論文(40%)、對班級專案的貢獻 (25%),和課堂參與 (10%).

學生必須到課並且到課情況將被紀錄。必須認真記筆記。任何形式的抄襲都是不可接受的。這些規定和其他基本規定,成績評定方針,將在最初的二次課進行更為詳細的討論。

STS.092 2003年春季學期從「科學技術和社會」(STS)的觀點看當今事件

課程大綱 (英文PDF)、 (繁體PDF)、 (簡體PDF)、 (英文DOC)、 (繁體DOC)、 (簡體DOC)

課程目標

  • 基於STS的學習研究,形成一套概念性辭彙和一個分析框架;
  • 構建一個有關這個世界的知識基礎;
  • 鍛煉提高閱讀、寫作和演講技能。

作業

  • 閱讀:每天閱讀《紐約時報》半小時;
  • 每次上課時,將你發現的該周特別令人感興趣的一篇文章帶到課堂上;
  • 其他佈置的閱讀作業。

授課

  • 在大多數課上,我會用20分鐘課堂時間討論STS研究的歷史及含意;
  • 講課時你們必須提出書面作業,既包括每週一篇的論文也包括書評;
  • 請做好自己的筆記, 我也會在本學期晚些時候分發筆記資料。

發言

  • 每次課在課堂上,朗讀一篇2頁的論文;
  • 參與討論由學生論文所引發的問題;
  • 可能要求你在討論中發表你的意見,也可能要求你把發言機會讓給其他同學。

寫作

  • 每次課都要求寫一篇長約2頁的論文;
  • 大多數論文針對該周新聞做出評論並提出問題;
  • 一些作業比較具體,例如,寫一封信給編輯或者寫一篇專欄文章,以你住在美國之外其他地方的身份來寫文章,就一些報紙上沒有報導的事情寫一篇文章;
  • 所有作業應加以修改、彙編,然後以電子形式和以列印的書面形式,分別在期中和期末交給授課老師。

學期專案

  • 從所提供的書目中選取一本閱讀,寫一篇4-5頁的書評,概括解釋該書是如何就其主題提出一個STS觀點的(我們將在課堂上進一步討論此作業);
  • 如果時間允許,學生們在課堂上做10分鐘有關自己書評的演講。

不舉行期終考試

評分標準

  • 討論: 15%
  • 短作業: 65%
  • 書評: 20%

STS.069 Technology in a Dangerous World

Syllabus (PDF)

This subject is an exploratory one: students are expected to take an active role in shaping the questions and in defining topics they wish to explore further. In the spirit of exploration, many guests have been invited to contribute their perspective. Students are expected to be active listeners and discussants; they will need to prepare for the guests and also follow up on topics raised by these visitors.

Many writing assignments will be brief, pithy ones: these include responses to the reading assignments, one-paragraph or one-page comments written and read in class, and brief discussions of definitions of key terms. There will be two longer assignments: a topic on a subject of the student's choosing, and a section of a substantial class project, a report written by the entire class, on the subject of "MIT's role in a dangerous world." The latter report is intended to be submitted to the MIT administration at the conclusion of the class. The individually authored paper may be revised once.

Grades will be based on short assignments (25%), student paper (40%), contribution to class project (25%), and class participation (10%).

Attendance is recorded and required. Serious note-taking is necessary. Plagiarism in any form is unacceptable. These and other ground rules, as well as grading policy, will be discussed in more detail in the first two classes.

STS.092 Current Events from an STS Perspective

Syllabus (PDF)

Goals of class

  • Developing a conceptual vocabulary and analytical framework based on STS studies
  • Building up a knowledge base about the world
  • Practicing and improving reading, writing, and speaking skills

Assignments

  • Reading: read The New York Times for a half hour daily
  • Bring in one article to each class that you found particularly interesting during the week
  • Other readings as assigned

Lecture

  • In most classes I will take 20 minutes to discuss the history and implications of STS studies
  • These lectures should inform your writing assignments, both the weekly ones and the book review
  • Take your own notes, but I will also hand out notes later on in the term

Speaking

  • Read a 2-page short paper at each class session
  • Participate in discussion of questions raised by students papers
  • You may be called upon to contribute to discussion; you may also be asked to let others have more opportunity to speak

Writing

  • Write a 2-page short paper for each class session
  • Most of these papers will comment upon and raise questions about the weeks news
  • Some assignments will be more specific, i.e. write a letter to the editor or an op-ed piece, write as if you were living somewhere other than in the U.S, write about whats not in the newspaper
  • All assignments should be revised, compiled, and submitted (both electronically and in hard copy) to the instructor at the middle of the term and at the end of the term

Term Project

  • Read a book from the list provided and write a 4-5 page review summarizing and explaining how the book presents an STS perspective on the subject matter (we will discuss this assignment more in class)
  • If there is time, students will give a 10-minute presentation in class on their review

No final exam

Grading Criteria

  • Discussion: 15%
  • Short assignments: 65%
  • Book review: 20%
