ESA’s Weekly Water Cooler Chat

Join us today for ESA’s Weekly Water Cooler Chat
Last week, we talked about virtual field trips — this week, we’re on to assessing online learning. How will it differ from what you’ve done before? In what ways are your assessments the same? How do your assessments reflect meaningful and inclusive pedagogical practices? Join this week’s Water Cooler Chat host, Kaitlin Stack Whitney, Rochester Institute of Technology, ESA Education Scholar, and Peer Mentor of ESA’s current Data Access (Inclusive Pedagogy) Spring Faculty Mentoring Network for engaging conversation with your favorite beverage as your plan for finals.

UFERN 2019 Annual Meeting

Meeting participants

Our second annual network meeting was a success! There were many new faces in attendance, great networking and professional exchange, and the formation of new project ideas to move the field forward. A majority of participants responded in a survey that UFERN colleagues pushed their thinking. Project groups ended the final workday with more clarity and motivated to stay involved. As a result, we now have some exciting projects in the works!

What words did participants use to define what UFERN is about?

UFERN webinar series

To build community learning and involvement, UFERN will host a series of monthly interactive webinars between May 2018 and April 2019. We will invite speakers and panels of speakers who can help us address topics relevant to our network goals. The webinars will also serve as a forum for working groups to share results of their work and integrate across topics with the network. Please join our mailing list to get more information about the webinar series.
