dc.descriptionIncludes descriptive metadata provided by producer in MP4 file: "Video @ Vanderbilt - Videos - VUCast: Where are these people from and why should you care?" By Vanderbilt University. Amy Wolf appears for VUCast News Network. She reports that Peabody College has released results of a "landmark" study on the effectiveness of teacher pay for performance. The study showed that bonus pay alone did not raise student test scores. Matthew G. Springer, Assistant Professor of Public Policy and Education and one of the researchers, appears. The Vanderbilt Heartbeats, a singing group made up of doctors, nurses, and staffers at Vanderbilt Heart, are featured. They are shown recording and performing a medical-themed parody of "Stand By Me," called "Walk for Me," to promote the American Heart Association and the Heart Walk. VUCast's Princine Lewis reports on the beginnings of an academic partnership of collaboration and exchanges between Vanderbilt and the University of Melbourne, in Australia. Jeffrey R. Balser, Vice Chancellor for Health Affairs, Provost Richard McCarty, and Melbourne's provost John Dewar speak briefly. Vanderbilt law student Jillian Mastroianni is congratulated for winning the inaugural (2010) Nashville Women's Half Marathon. Wolf reports that Rear Admiral Nora Tyson, a 1979 Vanderbilt graduate, is the first woman in Navy history to assume command of a carrier strike group.en_US
