Professor from Harvard to lecture on values

"What Is Good Work," the 2008 Tanner Lecture on Human Values, will be presented at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the Dumke Auditorium at the Utah Museum of Fine Arts at the University of Utah by Howard Gardner, professor of psychology at Harvard University and author of "Multiple Intelligences."

Most Americans learn at a young age that they live in a performance-based society. From the first gold star, to the first letter grade in school, good work has been equated more with meeting standards than making connections.

In conjunction with this initial lecture, a panel of experts will hold a round-table discussion from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Thursday; Gardner will present a follow-up lecture titled "Achieving Good Work in Turbulent Times" from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Thursday, and a round-table discussion of this lecture will be held from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Friday.

All events are free and open to the public.
