Day 3:  Friday, May 14 - Philosophy of Science & Public Engagement with Science

The workshop’s third day is intended primarily for philosophers of science. The goal is to have extended discussions about how to expand the discipline of philosophy of science’s participation in public engagement with science. This will include working group sessions on philosophy of science’s prospective contributions to each of the four conference themes, as well as discussion about how to address the challenges facing philosophers of science working on public engagement with science. 

12:00 – 1:30 pm EDT - Topic-Specific Working Group Discussions
Participant may join one of the four breakout sessions: (1) Science Communication (2) K-12 Science Education (3) Informal Science (4) Scientific Work with Communities

2:30 – 3:30 pm EDT - Disciplinary Transformation Working Group Discussions
Participant may join one of the four breakout sessions: (1) Institutional Structures for Public Engagement with Science (2) Graduate Student Training in Public Engagement with Science (3) Disciplinary Recognition for Public Engagement with Science.

Using the Jetstream API's: An Introduction (5/14)

Time: May 14, 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Location: Virtual

Target Audience: Faculty

Research Office: Office of the Vice President for Research

Jetstream is a user-friendly cloud computing environment that is designed to provide configurable cyber-infrastucture to researchers. To learn more about Jetstream's features and how to use it, visit the topic Introduction to Jetstream. This topic covers advanced subjects related to accessing and controlling Jetstream's functionality through programmatic means such as Application Programmer Interfaces (APIs). APIs provide "low level" access that is designed to be powerful rather than easy to use. As such, the techniques described in this topic may be challenging for less experienced cloud computing users and programmers.

Research Development & Support Series: Proposal Budgets - More Than Just a Bunch of Numbers (5/17)

Time: May 17, 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

Location: Zoom

Target Audience: All faculty, post-docs, graduate students and research administrators

Research Office: Office of the Vice President for Research

Preparing and managing a grant proposal budget can be challenging. In this presentation, Office of Research staff will highlight some key information on the basics of budgeting, the available tools, and most importantly where to turn for assistance. We will review a sample project and walk through the process of creating a budget for that process in a workshop format. This will be followed by a Q&A where the presenters will be available to discuss any specific areas of interest to the audience, and answer any questions.

You may submit questions in advance to Research Development.

Webinar: Introduction to Computational Thinking Across the Curriculum (5/27)

Time: May 27, 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Location: Online

Target Audience: Faculty and Staff

Research Office: Office of the Vice President for Research

This webinar will focus on inquiry-based learning enhanced by computational thinking with content and practice to assist teachers and faculty to incorporate modeling at all levels from mobile device to desktop to petascale supercomputing and beyond. The activities will expose participants to the basics of computational thinking, modeling, and data analysis. Participants from a broad range of disciplines, including, but not limited to, computer science, mathematics, and the physical and life sciences are welcome. Materials for the webinar are drawn from the National Science Digital Library (nsdl.oercommons.org), in particular resources from XSEDE as well as Shodor’s extensive Interactivate collection of lessons, discussions, activities, and supporting materials. The first two hours of the webinar will consist of presentation and activities, and the third hour will be reserved for questions and further discussion.

Cleaning your data with OpenRefine (6/2)

Time: June 2, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Location: Online

Target Audience: Faculty

Research Office: Office of the Vice President for Research

OpenRefine is an open sourced, java-based, powerful tool that lets you clean your messy data easily and in ways Excel and other traditional spreadsheet software programs cannot.  In this 2 hour hands-on workshop you will learn how to explore your data, how to clean and transform it, and how to automate processes.  Go beyond “find and replace” to find all variations of a term  (i.e., UC, U.C., Univ. of Cinci., University of Cincinnati, U Cincinatti) to correct errors, to group like categories together, to convert columns to new formats, to make mistakes, and to fix them.
