Rank #1: THE Podcast: which US institutions are best at student engagement? .
Does a small campus always create a greater sense of community? Do lower faculty to student ratios mean teaching is better? We discuss the results of our annual survey of 200,000 current college students across the US and the top performers in the Wall Street Journal / Times Higher Education College Rankings. Sara Custer is joined by rankings editor Ellie Bothwell and student content editor Seeta Bhardwa.
Rank #2: THE Podcast: Are universities equipped to meet the digital literacy gap?.
Before digital literacy can become the fourth pillar of education – alongside reading, writing and 'rithmetic – educators must first agree on what being digitally literate actually looks like and where the gaps in understanding lie. And what about digital media platforms themselves – should they be involved in this instruction? Sara Custer speaks with Jo Coldwell-Neilson, associate dean of teaching and learning at Deakin University, who argues that nobody is actually a digital native, and Joel Breakstone, director of the Stanford History Education Group, who says that the approach to teaching digital literacy needs to be updated, but there are reasons to be optimistic.

Rank #1: Give every child the best start.
Absence of the nurturing and presence of the harmful are important for the whole of life and are strong contributors to inequalities in adult health. There is much we can do to make things better at both the level of national policy and at the local level supporting families and children.

Rank #1: Anxiety - and the 'worry bully'.
Anxiety is an essential human emotion—it kicks in to protect us from threats—but sometimes those threats are only perceived. When worries start to become overwhelming, approximately 25 per cent of us experience clinical anxiety. But it is highly treatable. A ten-year-old girl and a 30-year-old man share their anxious thoughts and their strategies to manage them.
Rank #2: Positive psychology—with Martin Seligman.
During the 1960s the field of psychology focussed on the science of how past trauma creates present symptoms, and how to reduce people’s misery. Professor Martin Seligman wanted to change that focus. He’s become known as the Father of Positive Psychology, and he’s had a profound influence worldwide. In Part 1 of our 2 programs with Martin Seligman, hear him address an exclusive audience in Australia on happiness and human flourishing.
