Spr '14 MSTE Friday Lunch Series - Jose Mestre

Posted on: 4/9/2014 2:59 PM
Topics: [ Announcements ] [ Friday Lunch ] [ Outreach ] [ Physics ]

Title: Cognitive research in STEM: What it tells us about student perception and performance, and how it can inform teaching


Description: We will learn about several studies conducted in his lab that shed light on what students attend to when performing cognitive tasks in physics. The studies, drawing from a variety of methodologies from the learning sciences, aim to understand the obstacles to, and factors facilitating, competent performance. The findings from some of the studies debunk biases/hunches that many physics professors have about what students do, and the audience will very likely find several of the findings surprising. Pedagogical implications of the findings will be discussed.

When: Friday, April 11, 2014 from noon-1pm

Where: Classroom 201, 505 E Green St., Champaign, IL

Spr '14 MSTE Friday Lunch Series - CUVolunteer, CCDOS & Indi Go

Posted on: 3/12/2014 2:50 PM
Topics: [ Announcements ] [ Education ] [ Friday Lunch ] [ Outreach ]

Title: Creating Connections Between Volunteers and the Community

Presenters: Sarah Zehr, Michael McKelvey, & Rebecca Byrd (all w/ CUVolunteer.org and CCDOS) and Caroline Baljon & James Barham (both w/ Indi Go Artist Co-op)

Description: Join us to hear about how a small team was able to create a mechanism to connect nonprofits with people in the community interested in volunteering… and what you might want to consider if you want to make something happen that you really believe in. Hear how the Indi Go Art Co-Op used CUVolunteer.org to recruit volunteers for their mission of providing a space in which artists, musicians, and appreciators of art can come together to celebrate the arts. After launching CUVolunteer, we were also able to bring together a larger team to create an annual Day of Service for the University and the community… and we now have a huge group of students who are taking on more and more of the effort!

When: Friday, March 14, 2014 from noon-1pm

Where: Classroom 201, 505 E Green St., Champaign, IL
