Scheduled speaker for the November 21st session is: Stephen Gasior, Ph.D. Instructor in the Biological Science Department “I and collaborators are developing virtual learning tools in chemistry and biology for use in both virtual courses and in standard lecture courses. This talk with give an overview of the technology, show the specific assignments, and how it can be used in courses. We are looking for faculty to try these out in their courses and for education researchers to analyze their effectiveness with an eye to apply for grant funding. The new aspect of this effort compared to anything coming before is the scale at which these can be deployed and minimizes the technological needs for the course instructor.” Plan on attending – there may be an opportunity for you to become involved in the development of new learning tools!

Last year the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs instituted the online Responsible Conduct of Research Training for anyone receiving National Science Foundation (NSF) or Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) including National Institutes of Health (NIH) funding. Both of these agencies recommend that the training not be done strictly online. Therefore, the Office of Research has been conducting discussion sessions of research ethics cases to meet this requirement. Individuals who receive some form of compensation from either NSF or DHHS must attend - this includes faculty, staff, graduate assistants and student workers. The fall session will be led by Dr. Johnson from the Philosophy Department on Thursday September 29th from 2 to 3 p.m. in LA 312. Space is limited to promote discussion so please register for this session by following this link: Professional Development Registrations. (Navigation in SharePoint is: Research, Professional Development, Professional Development Registrations.) You will need to add a new item – click New on the menu bar and then New Item. Fill in the requested information and click OK. You will receive an email stating that your registration is in process. Once approved or rejected (if the session is full) you will receive another email. If another session is added, an announcement will be made. You must attend one session this calendar year to meet the training requirement. If your department/college would like to conduct their own session, please contact Carol Mitton (cmitton@uno.edu or extension 5546) to learn more. If you have any questions, please contact Carol Mitton. This email has been distributed to all faculty/staff.
