Navigating the American Workplace: How should I dress? Where should I eat?
Friday, March 20th 12 noon
Graduate Student Center, Kutz Hall
Please email email@example.com and indicate which program you'd like to attend. A light meal will be provided, so we'll need to know who's coming!
Faye Halpern, Visiting Professor of English, will lead a discussion of both the conventions of this genre and how much job committees care about them. We will look at a teaching philosophy rubric developed by the teaching and learning center at Michigan; and evaluate a few examples of these statements. We'll also spend some time brainstorming ideas about our own teaching to get us started (or further along with) our own statements. This is a brown bag lunch, but desserts, fruit, coffee and tea will be available. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org

Data Visualization Series
Visualization can help us to quickly find patterns as we consider datasets either large or small. Exploring research materials using a range of different tools might enable a glimpse at a trend, the formation of a meaningful cluster — or can quickly drive us back to discovery. Over the semester, we’ll review a range of different software packages that enable dynamic graphic displays, meaningful maps, or exhibits that can support the teasing out of complex questions, whether you work with quantitative variable-dependent information or in a richly qualitative and context-dependent field. Good for: Humanities, Social Sciences, Sciences, all levels.
NOTE: These Thursday sessions generally take place in the Goldfarb Vershbow Classroom.
