About this Episode
Dan and James answer listener audio questions on indirect costs for research grants, the mind/body problem, and why many academics aren't trained to teach. They also profess their love for the overhead projector
Some more details:
- Should we require universities to justify overhead costs, like heating and electricity?
- Overheads can inflate the costs of grants, some grants provide an additional percentage for overheads but others don’t allow this, which can eat into grants
- Get to know the people in your local grant office!
- Indirect costs at MIT
- A primer on indirect costs and why they are important to MIT
- Does it matter that we address the mind body problem in psychology?
- On the teaching of the history and philosophy of science (or lack thereof) in psychology courses
- Why aren’t academics better equipped to teach?
