Germany: Einstein Fellowship

The Einstein Forum and the Daimler & Benz Foundation are offering a fellowship for outstanding young thinkers who wish to pursue a project in a different field from that of their previous research.

The fellowship includes living accommodations for 5-6 months in the garden cottage of Einstein’s summerhouse in Caputh, Brandenburg, a stipend of EUR 10,000 and reimbursement of travel expenses.

Candidates must be under 35 and hold a university degree in the humanities, social sciences, or natural sciences. At the end of the program, the fellow must present their project in public lectures at the Einstein Forum and the Daimler & Benz Foundation.

California Council on Science and Technology

A limited number of California’s state decision makers possess backgrounds in science, engineering, or technology. Despite this, they are asked to make critical decisions on a number of issues that require an understanding in these areas, such as our water supply, the state’s energy grid, and overall environmental policy.

To address the challenge this represents, each year the CCST Science Fellows program recruits a corps of fifteen PhD scientists and engineers. These Science Fellows spend one year in Sacramento, directly serving decision makers within the California State Legislature and Executive Branch.

The Role of External Funding in Educational Research and Building Collaborations with HBCUs

Monday, February 10, 2020
12 p.m. – 1 p.m.
McKnight Brain Institute DeWeese Auditorium, LG101A
UF Health Main Campus

The expectation of garnering external funding is weaved-in, ingrained, and integral part of the teaching, research, and service expectations for faculty. Scholarship in research includes the generation of research proposals, research protocols, working papers, journal articles, research reports, book chapters, and books. However, the expectations is publication without external funding is not acceptable; and external funding without publication is not acceptable. Therefore, let’s explore funding opportunities available to support educational research, specifically STEM education research. In addition, we will identify value and opportunities in building research collaborations with historically black colleges and universities especially in STEM education research.

Dr. Caesar Jackson is professor of physics at North Carolina Central University (NCCU). He previously served as dean for School of Graduate Studies, College of Science & Technology, and College of Arts & Sciences. He served 3 years at National Science Foundation in program director and division director roles. His degrees are Bachelor of Engineering Technology in Electrical Engineering (Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University), Master of Engineering in Electrical Engineering (University of Florida), and Doctor of Philosophy in Physics (North Carolina State University). Over the years, he has been engaged in nuclear physics research at Triangle Universities Nuclear Laboratory in Durham, NC and at Thomas Jefferson National Laboratory in Newport News, VA. Currently, he conducts science education research on issues associated with increasing the number of minorities pursuing degrees and careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). His current work investigates cognitive and non-cognitive factors that influence student’s academic performance in STEM at historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs). Specific studies include: (a) investigating the relationship between self-regulated learning (SRL) and academic achievement of African American undergraduate students in STEM courses at an HBCU; (b) investigating the relationship between science identity and academic achievement of African American undergraduate students in STEM degree program at an HBCU; (c) investigating the impact of active-learning instructional approaches on student learning in STEM courses at an HBCU.

Resting to Rise: Reduce Burn Out, Find Your Joy for Writing and Life, and Create a Just Academia

Tuesday, February 18, 2020
2 p.m.  – 3 p.m.
Online

We all hear about the importance of self-care and, in particular, sleep. But many of us continue to struggle finding our internal place of deep rest and renewal. This place is not only where our nervous system resets, but also where our creativity, zest, truest voice, and zone of genius dwell - boons to any academic writer, teacher, and change-maker. It is also from this place that clarity of purpose arises about our role in social transformation.

In this workshop we explore the idea and practice of "resting to rise" for academics. We introduce yoga nidra - what it is, what it does, its relevance to faculty, and, most importantly, how to try it and even fit it in to your already-full schedule. You will leave the workshop with access to a free recording, and a plan for weaving it into your life in support of your writing goals and other meaningful projects.

Project management, whether aimed at improving service or solving major organizational problems, requires a different set of management skills than those needed to oversee routine operations. Project management involves leading a diverse group of employees who are working in an environment that is highly dependent upon planning, limited by budget and scheduling controls, and subject to constant progress evaluations. You can make project management a positive work experience through understanding project functions from start to finish. Become a better project manager or team member by participating in this "Project Management Basics" workshop!

Reading Sideways: Why Instructors Should Assign Multimodal Texts

Friday, February 21, 2020
2:30 p.m. – 4 p.m.
Online

Reading is a primary learning skill that students in any discipline need in order to become successful. However, students with various interests, disabilities, and learning styles may struggle to connect with the standard books that instructors assign. This workshop describes how instructors in any discipline can enhance and streamline their teaching with multimodal texts like digital books, pop-up books, virtual reality, video games, Twine, and other interactive texts.

After a brief overview that defines multimodal texts and their importance in the classroom, workshop participants will learn how to create a Twine, a virtual “choose your own adventure” platform that can take their teaching to the next level by appealing to a student’s autonomy.
