Science in a Flash: How to Give a Successful Flash Talk
Thursday, March 12, 2020
2 p.m.
Online

Effective communication skills are critical to your success as a scientist. We often only have a few minutes, or a few sentences, to impress employers, influence granting agencies, or provide a quote to journalists. So, what if we gave you one figure, three minutes, and a microphone to describe your research - could you do it? In this webinar, a panel of skilled science communicators will share tips and tricks for giving a fast, informal presentation.

How to Challenge Race and Gender Bias in Student Evaluations
Tuesday, March 24, 2020
2 p.m. - 3 p.m.
Online

Studies consistently show that student evaluations are biased against women faculty and faculty of color. Yet, higher education institutions continue to lean heavily on students' evaluations of teaching for hiring and promotion decisions. This webinar is designed for faculty and administrators to better understand how student biases become transformed into institutional inequalities based on race and gender. The webinar provides administrators and faculty in leadership positions with a range of potential solutions for eliminating or minimizing the negative impacts of biased student evaluations. Recognizing that institutional change takes time, however, the webinar also provides strategies for empowering women faculty and faculty of color on how to advocate for themselves, particularly in situations where they are not being fully supported.
