In this talk, Dr. Vasko will present her recent interdisciplinary work on exploring responsible innovation at the nexus of chemistry and design. She will focus on unpacking shifting notions of “responsible” and “innovation” through case-study based content analysis of trade journal advertisements for industries at this nexus. She will touch on the personal and professional dimensions, including the hows and whys, of looking at responsible innovation at the intersections of chemistry, history, design, and philosophy.
The sixth annual CREATE Mini Conference took place at the Kellogg Hotel & Conference Center on Friday, February 10, 2017. In addition to poster sessions, Dr. Heidi Schweingruber (director, Board on Science Education, National Research Council) provided a national perspective on K-12 STEM education.
Unfortunately, Brian Danielak (CMSE) will not be able to lead the STEM-Ed postdoc meeting Monday at 11am. In his place, Caleb Trujillo will present his work at the same time.
We will continue to meet biweekly on Mondays at 11am for the rest of the semester.
Title: Co-citation Networks to Enhance Transdisciplinary Education Research: Mapping Literature on Systems Thinking
Abstract: STEM education needs resources to connect ideas across disciplines. Document co-citation analysis and validation may help scholars in pursuit of consilience.
Despite headlines to the contrary, sexual harassment is both a far-reaching and longstanding problem in academia. In the past year alone, sexual harassment perpetrated by a US professor, dean, or university president has been documented at least once a week. This talk will review existing research on academic sexual harassment as well as insights gleaned from an analysis of nearly 500 cases documented in media reports, legal briefs, and university documents.
