Journal Club Fall 2017 Week 6

2nd November 2017 at 1:05 pm
For journal club this week, please join us for a Teaching Showcase to hear about the new course: Bio 160 From Brains to Intelligent Machines developed by SLP affiliated faculty member Santiago Jaramillo and Graduate SLP Fellow Nick Ponvert.  We’ll have an opportunity to hear about the development and activities included in the course and ask questions about creating this course for non-science majors.
BI 160   Sp St Brain Intel Mach (From Brains to Intelligent Machines) Course Description:
A course designed for non-science majors to understand how the brain acquires information and drives behavior, and how scientists and engineers attempt to replicate these abilities in computers and artificial intelligence systems.  Students will be introduced to the process of scientific reasoning and use those skills to discuss the neural processes behind learning, memory, decision-making, and thinking.  Parallels will be made between the way the brain and computers process information and perform computations.  Students will grapple with questions such as:  What happens if our intelligent machines become too intelligent?  What are the implications to society of intelligent machines and technologies for interfacing brains and machines?

Fall term journal club will be held on Thursdays at 9 am in 217 LISB.

Journal Club Spring 2017 Week 9

31st May 2017 at 11:34 am

5E Instructional Design, Week A.  Think about a recent class session you ran or attended.  How was the session organized?  The order of the elements of a class period can influence student learning.  In this final two-week segment of the term we will consider the 5E Model for organizing class sessions.  This week we will read a feature article describing the 5E Model, and next week special guest Dr. Bryan Rebar of STEMCORE will discuss how he uses the model to design STEMCORE outreach experiences.  To prepare for this week, please read:

Tanner, K. D. (2010). Order matters: using the 5E model to align teaching with how people learn. CBE-Life Sciences Education, 9(3), 159-164. http://www.lifescied.org/content/9/3/159.short


Journal Club Spring 2017 Week 10

31st May 2017 at 10:21 am

In our last meetings of the year, Dr. Bryan Rebar, Associate Director of UO’s STEM CORE, will join us to continue our discussion of the 5E Model.  Bryan and the students he works with use the 5E’s when they design activities for their outreach work.  There is no new reading to do for this week, but if you haven’t had a chance to read the 5E Model paper we read for last week, now would be a good time to do it:

Tanner, K. D. (2010). Order matters: using the 5E model to align teaching with how people learn. CBE-Life Sciences Education9(3), 159-164. http://www.lifescied.org/content/9/3/159.short

We will meet in 217 LISB (Lewis Integrative Sciences Building) at 9:00 am on Thursday and 1:00 pm on Friday.

This has been another wonderful year in the Science Teaching Journal Club.  Every week, people at all stages of their careers have made interesting and thoughtful contributions to our conversations and enriched the experience for everyone.  Thank you!  Have a great summer, and we look forward to seeing you again in the fall.
