The workshop is designed to show faculty how to infuse data analysis into their course instruction and our training focuses largely on showcasing a survey research activity that makes use of Google forms and spreadsheets. We welcome faculty from a wide range of disciplines such as sociology, psychology, history, education, health sciences, journalism, as well as more traditional STEM fields. Attendees must come from a minority-serving institution (such as an HSI or HBCU). I have attached a flyer that provides more details about the workshop. If this workshop doesn’t seem appropriate to you, might you kindly forward this message to your colleagues in other departments/schools,, such as the ones I’ve indicated above? If so, I would be very grateful!
This year’s two-day workshop will be held on June 29th to June 30th at Lehman College , in the Bronx, in NYC (each day is a full day). We will welcome 20 guests to each workshop. We will be holding 3 additional workshops in the years ahead, so if someone might be interested in coming, but cannot attend this year, they are still encouraged to complete our questionnaire (depending on response, we may also invite some faculty to come in future years). We provide a stipend of $500 for local attendees and $1,000 for those traveling a long distance (greater than 60 miles). Breakfast and lunch will be provided at the workshop.
We require teams of at least two people to come from each institution (they could both be faculty, but it would also be acceptable to have a faculty member and an administrator). Each interested party must complete a questionnaire. Our goal is for those who attend our training program to return home and serve as leaders on their home campus for this hands-approach approach to teaching quantitative reasoning skills!
