Re-Thinking Astronomy and Physics Education: Lessons Learned from Two Decades of Experiments on College-Level Teaching and Learnin

May 11, 2017, 4 PM

Edward Prather
University of Arizona

Host: Matt Evans

Over the past two decades, members of the Center for Astronomy Education (CAE) have created a national STEM education research collaboration of faculty, post-docs, graduate and undergraduate students all working together to better understand and improve the teaching and learning of introductory astronomy and physics. Our multi-institutional and iterative education research model has successfully informed the development of several innovative active learning and assessment strategies. These research-validated classroom strategies have been used to significantly improve the discipline knowledge, critical reasoning and problem solving abilities, and attitudes of hundreds of thousands of learners in STEM classrooms. I will discuss the findings from two important research projects from this work, and unpack how these results inform future STEM education work on the creation of effective online-learning and addressing issues of inclusion and diversity in STEM.

Leading Change in Complex Organizations

May 14-19, 2017

The 21st century organization is enormously complex, difficult to understand, and even more difficult to manage. A volatile mix of dynamics are triggering changes in the workplace. As the complexity increases, effective managers must have a strong knowledge of the people in the organization and the tasks they perform. And they must have the skills to use that knowledge in practical and flexible ways. This program will present innovative perspectives on organizational change management problems and offers practical ways to solve them. The issues examined apply across organizations, national boundaries, and technical domains.

Examined in a carefully sequenced schedule of daytime (and sometimes evening) lectures and workshops, program topics will include:

  • Forces that are transforming traditional management goals and practices
  • New perspectives on managerial decision makingā??what managers can learn from recent studies on information processing, cognitive biases, and individual problem-solving skills
  • Improving the quality of decisions made under conditions of ambiguity, uncertainty, and risk
  • Techniques designed to insure the success of temporary, problem-focused groups such as task forces and project teams
  • Innovative incentives that organizations can offer to attract, retain, and manage employees who do not respond to familiar workplace rewards or aspire to traditional careers
  • Critical success factors for implementing technological change in environments where failure rates are commonplace and few technologies seem to be implemented smoothly
  • Diagnosing organizational cultures, the role and process of cultural change, and what managers can do to understand and shape that culture

Participants in this program will learn to understand and harness such critical factors as:

  • Strategic organizational design
  • Informal networks
  • Leadership styles
  • Negotiation skills

This program is designed for general managers and senior functional managers who coordinate diverse groups and groups of diverse individuals. It can also benefit staff executives who manage training and education. The benefits of the program are reinforced when three or more managers from the same organization attend. Companies are encouraged to sponsor cross-functional team participation.

  • Executive Manager, Communications
  • Director, Organizational Learning
  • COO

Nuclear Physics as Precision Science

May 4, 2017, 4 PM

Ulf-G. Meissner
Universität Bonn & Forschungszentrum Jülich

Host: Physics Graduate Student Council

Theoretical Nuclear Physics has entered a new era. Using the powerful machinery of chiral effective Lagrangians, the forces between two, three and four nucleons can now be calculated with unprecedented precision and with reliable uncertainties. Furthermore, Monte Carlo methods can be adopted to serve as a new and powerful approach to precisely solve nuclear structure and reactions. I will discuss the foundations of these new methods and provide a variety of intriguing examples. Variations of the fundamental constants of Nature can also be investigated and the consequences for the element generation in the Big Bang and in stars are considered. This sheds new light on our anthropic view of the Universe.
