Interested parties are invited to attend the MI-AMTE "Conversations among Colleagues" conference to be held on March 18, 2017 at Michigan State University in Erickson Hall. This year's conference theme is Developing Systems to Face the Challenges of Today and Tomorrow. Building on the past traditions of Conversations among Colleagues, the format of the 2017 MI-AMTE conference consists of invited plenary sessions, participant working groups, and solicited talks that focus on the conference theme.
This is a reminder of the upcoming CREATE for STEM Post-doc talk & reading group meeting – Mon, March 13th, 4:00-5:30 pm at the CREATE conference room.
The meeting will start with a presentation by Samuel Severance, post-doc in Joe’s group. After 30-45 minutes, those who have to time to stay will continue with a reading suggested by Joe – it’s about the “how to” of design research (Sandoval 2014, see below).
Please prepare a question for discussing the reading!
The focus of this presentation is to examine the effect legitimate experiences such as those found in undergraduate research or the PHYS 170 laboratory here at MSU have on a student’s views of doing physics and their place within their physics and science related communities of practice. The presentation will make a case for why it is important to offer the opportunity for students to obtain a greater amount of legitimate experiences during their undergraduate science careers.
