Designing Successful Team Projects—Why, How, and For Whom

November 6, 2017, 12:00pm
What are the key ingredients for a successful, long-term group assignment? What does it take to pull this off in a classroom or research setting? How might teaming look different across different disciplines, and what is to be gained from taking a team-based approach to learning? Join a distinguished panel of Berkeley faculty from Integrative Biology, Geography, and the Haas School of Business as they share their experiences and insights, talk about nuts and bolts (project management, team composition, grading and assessment), and expound on the benefits of teaming for student learning.

Algorithmic Bias in Search and Research

April 18, 2018, 4:00pm
Algorithms shape our everyday access to information, defining what we can and can not find online. Safiya Umoja Noble's (USC) forthcoming book Algorithms of Oppression explores the algorithms that form the backbone for services like Google and Facebook, and the ways in which these algorithms reinforce racist views and encode gender discrimination. As commercial platforms increasingly control how scholars, as well as the general public, access information, it's critical for our students to consider the ways in which these tools are anything but neutral.

Dynamic Lecturing: Research-Based Strategies to Enhance Effectiveness

February 7, 2018, 1:00pm
Although lecturing has been demonized over the past several years, it continues to be one of the most frequently used strategies in higher education. Faculty may well be critiqued for using this “tainted and antiquated approach.” In comparing active learning to lecturing, flaws in the interpretation of current literature have resulted in misconceptions about the value of lecturing. In this session, we will critique foundational studies, examine components of the effective lecture, and integrate lectures with other educational strategies to create even more meaningful learning experiences for our students.
