A lot of people who are stuck at home staring out the window are learning to enjoy what’s flying around outside that window.

Today on the Best of Our Knowledge, we’ll talk about a new course on the joy of birdwatching.

We’ll also hear how students are making up for lost learning and some awesome technology. And we’ll spend an Academic Minute with our mixed-race future.

As students around the country finish the school year at home, many are finding it takes discipline to stay on task.

Today on the Best of Our Knowledge, we’ll hear from a high schooler and a grade schooler about home learning from their point of view.

We’ll also hear from Dr. Timothy Hoff, a professor of Management, Health Care Systems and Health Policy  at Northeastern University in Boston, about how the pandemic may change medical training.

And we'll spend an Academic Minute learning to share the road.
