Contemporary WA: Shodo/Sumi painting exhibit (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The University Libraries welcome you to experience Contemporary WA: Shodo/Sumi paintings of Sensou Miyajima and Tei Kobayashi, now through October 30 in Norlin Library.

You may view the exhibit in Norlin's Ventana and Triptych Galleries, as well as the Special Collections & Archives Reading Room, all located on the 3rd floor. The SCA Reading Room, N345, is open from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. The rest of the exhibit is accessible whenever Norlin Library is open.

The exhibit showcases a collaboration between traditional Japanese calligraphy and enigmatic "Nihonga"(Japanese Style) painting.  You may enjoy a glimpse into the heart of Hikaru Genji as he speaks of his love in Lady Murasaki Shikibu's Waka from the Heian Period, revel in the ephemera of Haiku, or relish the quiet beauty of the morning glory.

A small opening reception is planned for Wednesday, Aug. 30, 5:30 p.m., outside the Special Collections & Archives Reading Room in Norlin Library.

Sponsored by: 
Special Collections & Archives, University of Colorado Boulder Libraries, The Book Arts League and the Japan Exchange & Teaching Alumni Association of the Rocky Mountains. 
Mustang in Black and White: Himalayan Photography Exhibit (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The University Libraries invite you to an exhibit of Kevin Bubriski's photography of Mustang, Nepal, showing through December 2017 in the 1st Floor, Underground West Gallery of Norlin Library.

"Mustang, Nepal, is known for its vibrant landscapes —blue skies, vermilion-colored cliffs, fluted canyons of deep ochre. It is a tapestry of Himalayan culture and history, a social and economic crossroads for trade, tourism, and Tibetan tradition. Today, the people of Mustang are navigating significant transformations: from the impacts of climate change across this rain shadow landscape to the lived effects of out-migration on communities who have relied for centuries on agriculture, pastoralism, and their role as culture brokers between the Tibetan plateau and Hindu South Asia."

From the new book, Mustang in Black and White by Kevin Buriski and Sienna Craig.

10:30 AM - 4:00 PM

CU Boulder Department of History offers

A ‘Charlottesville in Historical Perspective’ Educational Forum Series Free Saturday Workshop:

SLAVERY MATTERS

 

Racial Enslavement—Twelve Generations of Unpaid Labor—underlies many present-day debates about Diversity, Multiculturalism, and White Supremacy. 

 But for most of us, this topic seems distant and remains something of a mystery.

So this half-day mini-course, SLAVERY MATTERS, will offer a needed overview.

 How did U.S. race slavery begin, and why did it persist so long?

 This immersion/overview is free.  All members of the CU community are welcome, as are other interested people from the Boulder area who can commit the time. LUNCH WILL BE SERVED, thanks to the History Department and the Provost.

 PRESENTER: Peter H. Wood, American History Professor, Duke and CU-Boulder;

winner of the American Historical Association’s Distinguished Teaching Award.

 WHEN: Saturday, October 21, 10:30 to 4:00 (lunch provided)

WHERE: Flatirons Rm., Center for Community (C4C Bldg) on Regent Drive at CU.

SIGN UP: free, but limited to 60.  To register, please go to slotted.co/smw

  This crash-course/workshop is sponsored by the CU-Boulder History Dept. and by “Impact on Education,” a foundation supporting Boulder Valley School District.

 NOTE: Forum #3, panel discussion on “Monuments and Memory,” will be Nov. 7.

 Peter  H. Wood is the author of Black Majority; Strange New Land: Africans in Colonial America; and Near Andersonville: Winslow Homer’s Civil War.  He is the co-author of a widely used U.S. History survey text entitled Created Equal.  In 2011, Professor Wood received the Asher Distinguished Teaching Award of the American Historical Association.  Retired from teaching early American history at Duke, he lives in Longmont and serves as an adjunct professor at CU-Boulder.

Event Image Ethics & Compliance Education Session: High School Students in Research Labs
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

October’s Monthly Ethics & Compliance Education Series will feature a presentation on best practices in mentoring and working with high school students in your research labs. CU Science Discovery has managed a successful high school research program for several years and will share useful tips and lessons learned to help CU researchers support high school students while volunteering in on-campus labs. Stacey Forsyth, Director of CU Science Discovery, and Kathryn Penzkover, High School Programs Manager, will share their knowledge and insight into what you should know before having a high school student in your lab. Their session will provide an overview of guidelines and required university paperwork, tips on recruiting and selecting motivated students, training resources for you to use to help prepare high school student researchers and a checklist to ensure you remain on track for a successful mentoring relationship. Stacey and Kathryn will be joined by Dr. Dana Calhourn from Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, who will share a firsthand experience from her recent mentor relationship. Risk Management will also be in attendance to answer questions regarding university resources available. During the hour session, there will be ample time for audience Q&A.

How Can Academics Connect with Professional Track Students?

Chelsea Daggett, Former Lead Graduate Teacher, Journalism

Many TAs and Graduate Part Time Instructors spend their lives learning how to teach from academics. Students in professional disciplines relate differently to dense, theoretical course material. So how can we make these concepts relevant, concrete, and practical for students who prefer to learn through action and application? This workshop will provide resources to develop effective teaching. Workshop will be held in ATLAS 301.

Contemporary WA: Shodo/Sumi painting exhibit (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The University Libraries welcome you to experience Contemporary WA: Shodo/Sumi paintings of Sensou Miyajima and Tei Kobayashi, now through October 30 in Norlin Library.

You may view the exhibit in Norlin's Ventana and Triptych Galleries, as well as the Special Collections & Archives Reading Room, all located on the 3rd floor. The SCA Reading Room, N345, is open from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. The rest of the exhibit is accessible whenever Norlin Library is open.

The exhibit showcases a collaboration between traditional Japanese calligraphy and enigmatic "Nihonga"(Japanese Style) painting.  You may enjoy a glimpse into the heart of Hikaru Genji as he speaks of his love in Lady Murasaki Shikibu's Waka from the Heian Period, revel in the ephemera of Haiku, or relish the quiet beauty of the morning glory.

A small opening reception is planned for Wednesday, Aug. 30, 5:30 p.m., outside the Special Collections & Archives Reading Room in Norlin Library.

Sponsored by: 
Special Collections & Archives, University of Colorado Boulder Libraries, The Book Arts League and the Japan Exchange & Teaching Alumni Association of the Rocky Mountains. 
Mustang in Black and White: Himalayan Photography Exhibit (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The University Libraries invite you to an exhibit of Kevin Bubriski's photography of Mustang, Nepal, showing through December 2017 in the 1st Floor, Underground West Gallery of Norlin Library.

"Mustang, Nepal, is known for its vibrant landscapes —blue skies, vermilion-colored cliffs, fluted canyons of deep ochre. It is a tapestry of Himalayan culture and history, a social and economic crossroads for trade, tourism, and Tibetan tradition. Today, the people of Mustang are navigating significant transformations: from the impacts of climate change across this rain shadow landscape to the lived effects of out-migration on communities who have relied for centuries on agriculture, pastoralism, and their role as culture brokers between the Tibetan plateau and Hindu South Asia."

From the new book, Mustang in Black and White by Kevin Buriski and Sienna Craig.

Crucial Conversations
8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Consider these questions:

Does your department suffer from taboo topics, deference, disagreement, analysis paralysis, information hoarding, office politics, or alienation?  Is your department battling slow productivity or low morale? Are you a supervisor who struggles with having difficult conversations with employees?  Then you, your team, or your department needs Crucial Conversations training.

Crucial Conversations is a two-day course that teaches skills for creating alignment and agreement by fostering open dialogue around high-stakes, emotional, or risky topics – at all levels of the organization.  By learning how to speak and be heard (and encouraging others to do the same), you’ll surface the best ideas, make the highest-quality decisions, and then act on your decisions with unity and commitment.

The CU Boulder Department of Human Resources has teamed up with VitalSmarts to offer this important course to CU Boulder employees. Based on the national best-selling book Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking when the Stakes are High, the Crucial Conversations course teaches participants to speak persuasively, not abrasively; foster teamwork and better decision making; build acceptance rather than resistance; and resolve individual and group disagreements. See the attached document for a detailed description of the course.

Who Should Attend: Crucial Conversations training is appropriate for employees at all levels of the organization. Supervisors, managers, and executive leaders will find the course to be particularly relevant to their work.

Cost: $210 (The course fee includes a Crucial Conversations Toolkit, cue cards for each lesson, a Crucial Conversations model card, a copy of the New York Times bestselling book, Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking When Stakes are High, the Crucial Conversations audio companion MP3 download, and a course completion certificate).

(If you were to take this course directly from VitalSmarts, the cost would be $1,395. But because we have certified CU Boulder trainers to deliver the course, we are able to offer it to CU Boulder employees for $210! Don’t miss this opportunity to receive this incredible training that is transforming organizations around the country!)

The Power of Open: Fueling Creativity and Innovation
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

This event is part of Open Access Week 2017.

Digital technology has transformed everyday creativity and innovation, providing the tools for anyone to be content producers, researchers, and inventors. However, along with freedom of dissemination and ease of content re-use, issues of copyright become complex. The same laws that were designed to incentivize innovation by protecting ownership also constrain re-use and access. In this talk I discuss case studies of creative remix and critique in the context of traditional copyright laws, explaining the power of fair use tempered by the challenges that content creators can face. I also present open access as a paradigm that has allowed for new forms and scales of creativity, innovation, and scholarship.

Presenter: Dr. Casey Fiesler

Time: 2 pm - 3 pm

Recent results in the analysis of quantum hydrodynamical models

The motivation for this work is to lay the mathematical foundations of a formal theory introduced by P. Degond and C. Ringhofer in 2003 about quantum hydrodynamics. Their idea is to transpose to the quantum setting Levermore's closure strategy by entropy minimization for the derivation of hydrodynamical models from first principles. After introducing the salient features of Degond and Ringhofer theory, we will present various mathematical results: some concerning the resolution of the so-called quantum moment problem, which is the a transposition to operators of the classical moment problem for measures; some other concerning the dynamics of quantum states and their convergence to statistical equilibria.

Mini Law School 2017: Lifelong Learning Lecture Series for Non-Lawyers
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Have you ever wondered: How national monuments are designated and whether they can be undesignated? How a case gets to the Supreme Court and what they do with it once they get it? What power does an executive order have and how can it be reviewed? We will explore all of these topics and more in this fall's Mini Law School: Hot Topics. 

Mini Law School provides participants with a better understanding of important legal principles in key areas of the law. Taught by members of the CU Boulder law school faculty, the seven-week series provides a look into some of the hottest legal topics of our time. Open to all, this program is an excellent lifelong learning opportunity and is a great chance to get a mini taste of what law school is like. For fall 2017, we are excited to roll out a brand new Mini Law School curriculum, presenting topics that have not been offered previously. Each member of the Mini Law School Faculty will discuss “hot topics” in a different area of the law. The selected subjects cover some of the most pressing issue in the law today. Each week, a different topic is presented.

We will hold seven sessions on Tuesday evenings, Sept. 12 through Oct. 24. Colorado Law’s Mini Law School also will be livestreamed from Boulder to CU South Denver in Parker, Colorado, on the same dates and times. For those who neither Boulder nor Parker is convenient, we also have livestream and recorded viewing options. Participants selecting those options will receive the class materials and a link to the lecture weekly and can watch at their own pace and at the location of their choosing.

Event Image Combating the Black Death: Mitigating Sylvatic Plague in the Western United States
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

The word plague is used to describe a multitude of biological events with negative consequences for humans. Speaking strictly, however, there is one plague–the zoonotic disease caused by Yersinia pestis, a flea-borne bacterium that infects mammal hosts, including humans. Plague is arguably best known for causing the Black Death in Europe, the greatest public health disaster in history. However, plague persists mostly in wildlife, and can infect mammals of at least 73 genera and more than 200 species globally. This presentation will summarize research on the ecology of plague in the western United States. Controlled experiments demonstrate that plague is causing chronic problems in populations of many mammals, including threatened and endangered species. Moreover, several lines of evidence suggest plague is disrupting ecosystem functions, for instance when the disease suppresses populations of keystone or foundation species. Case examples will be presented, and a proposal will be extended for a greater emphasis on the conservation ramifications of plague.

About the Speaker: David Eads is a post-doctoral researcher with Colorado State University and the U. S. Geological Survey in Fort Collins, Colorado. David has studied free-living mammals for 13 years, with an emphasis on grassland species. Themes have included aspects of behavioral ecology, predator-prey relationships, and the ecology of plague, with an underlying motivation for conservation of wildlife. David has worked with colleagues at field sites in Colorado, Kansas, Montana, New Mexico, South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming. Taxa of interest have included carnivores, rodents, lagomorphs, arthropods, and bacteria. His current research emphasis is on the chronic effects of plague on wildlife populations and ecosystems.

Mustang in Black and White: Himalayan Photography Exhibit (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The University Libraries invite you to an exhibit of Kevin Bubriski's photography of Mustang, Nepal, showing through December 2017 in the 1st Floor, Underground West Gallery of Norlin Library.

"Mustang, Nepal, is known for its vibrant landscapes —blue skies, vermilion-colored cliffs, fluted canyons of deep ochre. It is a tapestry of Himalayan culture and history, a social and economic crossroads for trade, tourism, and Tibetan tradition. Today, the people of Mustang are navigating significant transformations: from the impacts of climate change across this rain shadow landscape to the lived effects of out-migration on communities who have relied for centuries on agriculture, pastoralism, and their role as culture brokers between the Tibetan plateau and Hindu South Asia."

Rogues and Rebels: Less than Legal Platforms for Open Access Resources
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

This event is part of Open Access Week 2017.

Within the past decade, we have seen years of open access growth and are now celebrating Open Access Week’s tenth anniversary, but have also seen an emergence and increased use of websites that host pirated academic content. This presentation will profile the who’s, what’s, and why’s of some less than legal academic access platforms, how these platforms are affecting the world of academic publishing, and look into legal open access repositories that are trying to accomplish many of the same goals as their illegal counterparts. Without going too far into the challenges of ‘open access’ itself, this presentation and following discussion will evaluate the perceived needs and outputs of communities using and creating these sites while also thinking of ways to confront these needs through more legal avenues.

Proper Punctuation Prevents Poor Performance
3:15 PM - 4:15 PM

~Open to ALL CU Students~  fleming 170
A long time ago, punctuation was a matter of sound, intuition, and even breathing. "A long time ago," though, is not today. In fact, the term "technical writing" may be said to be almost a redundancy: all writing is "technical" because punctuation is technical. In this presentation, we shall consider the various elements of punctuation (periods, semi-colons, colons, and even commas), and, along the way, we might even see how punctuation can even be--however subtly—rhetorical!

The Phoenix Years: Art, Resistance, and the Making of Modern China with Madeleine O'Dea
5:00 PM - 6:30 PM

Please join us as Sydney-based foreign correspondent and writer Madeleine O'Dea talks about her new book The Phoenix Years. The riveting story of China's rise from economic ruin to global giant in four decades is illuminated by another, equally fascinating, narrative beneath its surface―the story of the country's emerging artistic avant-garde and the Chinese people's ongoing struggle for freedom of expression.

By following the stories of nine contemporary Chinese artists, The Phoenix Years shows how China's rise unleashed creativity, thwarted hopes and sparked tensions between the individual and the state that continue to this day. It relates the heady years of hope and creativity in the 1980s, which ended in the disaster of the Tiananmen Square massacre. Following that tragedy comes China's meteoric economic rise, and the opportunities that emerged alongside the difficult compromises artists and others have to make to be citizens in modern China.

O'Dea has been an eyewitness for over thirty years to the rise of China, the explosion of its contemporary art and cultural scene, and the long, ongoing struggle for free expression. The stories of these artists and their art mirror the history of their country. The Phoenix Years is vital reading for anyone interested in China today.

5:30 PM - 7:00 PM

A sheet of newspaper is about 100,000 nanometers thick-so it's hard to imagine just how small one nanometer is. It's even harder to imagine doing science at this scale! Our October Café presenter, Dr. Jorge Hernandez Charpak, is an expert in nanoscale physics. Much of his work involves understanding the basic challenges one has to deal with when working with only tens or hundreds of atoms and molecules at time, as opposed to millions. What tools can we design to see things at nanoscale? How do we measure energy moving between tiny components of a nanotech processor? Breakthroughs in answering these essential questions are at the heart of a more than 60 year old race to make technology smaller and smaller. But how small is too small? Amazingly, nanotech isn't just about making things tiny. Nanoscale materials behave in different and unexpected ways that can either enhance or hinder properties such as strength, weight, and chemical reactivity than their larger-scale counterparts. Come learn about the teeny tiny engineering, chemistry, and physics inside our favorite devices that we take for granted every day.

Crucial Conversations
8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Consider these questions:

Does your department suffer from taboo topics, deference, disagreement, analysis paralysis, information hoarding, office politics, or alienation?  Is your department battling slow productivity or low morale? Are you a supervisor who struggles with having difficult conversations with employees?  Then you, your team, or your department needs Crucial Conversations training.

Crucial Conversations is a two-day course that teaches skills for creating alignment and agreement by fostering open dialogue around high-stakes, emotional, or risky topics – at all levels of the organization.  By learning how to speak and be heard (and encouraging others to do the same), you’ll surface the best ideas, make the highest-quality decisions, and then act on your decisions with unity and commitment.

The CU Boulder Department of Human Resources has teamed up with VitalSmarts to offer this important course to CU Boulder employees. Based on the national best-selling book Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking when the Stakes are High, the Crucial Conversations course teaches participants to speak persuasively, not abrasively; foster teamwork and better decision making; build acceptance rather than resistance; and resolve individual and group disagreements. See the attached document for a detailed description of the course.

Who Should Attend: Crucial Conversations training is appropriate for employees at all levels of the organization. Supervisors, managers, and executive leaders will find the course to be particularly relevant to their work.

Cost: $210 (The course fee includes a Crucial Conversations Toolkit, cue cards for each lesson, a Crucial Conversations model card, a copy of the New York Times bestselling book, Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking When Stakes are High, the Crucial Conversations audio companion MP3 download, and a course completion certificate).

(If you were to take this course directly from VitalSmarts, the cost would be $1,395. But because we have certified CU Boulder trainers to deliver the course, we are able to offer it to CU Boulder employees for $210! Don’t miss this opportunity to receive this incredible training that is transforming organizations around the country!)

Stochastics Seminar - Gu Wang
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

High-water Mark Fees with Stochastic Benchmark

A hedge fund manager invests the fund in a constant investment opportunity, and receives high-water mark fees when the fund reaches a new maximum relative to a stochastic benchmark, aiming to maximize the expected power utility from fees in the long run. The manager's optimal portfolio includes a Merton component with the risk aversion parameter shifted towards one, and a hedging component against the risk in the benchmark, both of which depend on how the fund investment opportunity compares to the benchmark. A stochastic benchmark in the calculation of high-water mark fees introduces the moral hazard of risky fund investment with hedging motives, but also provides a possibility of regulating the manager's risk taking with a carefully chosen benchmark.
The Best Weapon of Democracy: Creative Commons and the Common Good from Niels Bohr through the Fake
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

This event is part of Open Access Week 2017.
 
This presentation places the beginning of the open access paradigm in scientific enquiry with Niels Bohr’s recommendation to share nuclear technology with Russia during the denouement of WWII, and follows its development through present challenges in strategic, military, and political applications of science.  If a thing can be known, someone will come to know it, and during WWII the only hope was that those on the “right” side of history would get there first. Bohr, however, noted that the Nazis believed they were “right,” too, and argued that only intersubjectivity could regulate these dangerous monopolies on what is presumed “good,” as well as prevent divisions of labor and knowledge among those without the monopoly, which not only prevented unauthorized use, but ethical consideration, of the deadly whole of their work.  Today the Open Access movement, whether with respect to biomedical, environmental, or military research, is Open in order to close those same divides.

Complex/Dynamical Systems Seminar - Juan Restrepo
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Juan Restrepo, Department of Applied Mathematics, University of Colorado Boulder

Uncovering low-dimensional macroscopic chaotic dynamics of large finite size complex systems
 
In the last decade it has been shown that a large class of phase oscillator models admit low dimensional descriptions for the macroscopic system dynamics in the limit of an infinite number N of oscillators. The question of whether the macroscopic dynamics of other similar systems also have a low dimensional description in the infinite N limit has, however, remained elusive. In this talk I’ll show how techniques originally designed to analyze noisy experimental chaotic time series can be used to identify effective low dimensional macroscopic descriptions from simulations with a finite number of elements. As an example, this approach will be applied to an ensemble of globally coupled Landau-Stuart oscillators for which low dimensional macroscopic chaotic behavior is found with an effective 4-dimensional description. By using this description, one can calculate dynamical invariants such as Lyapunov exponents and attractor dimensions. One could also use the reconstruction to generate short-term predictions of the macroscopic dynamics.

Event Image Leveraging Multiple Forms of Expertise in Museum and Community-Based Collaborations
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Molly Shea explores how museums can collaborate and incorporate community expertise (informal education) into research and programs to better reflect the communities they serve.  Themes include: using community resources to design transformational spaces that reflect the identity of youth in their community; engaging families in design and implementation of STEM-rich making projects; how flexible, process-driven projects allow youth and adults to improvise and develop STEM practices that arise through collaborative design.

Molly Shea has a PhD in Education from University of Colorado Boulder School of Education and a Master's of Business Administration from CU Boulder. She is an Assistant Professor at San Francisco State University. Shea focuses on the social, cultural, and historical interactions that shape human development.

This talk is part of Learning in Informal Settings, an innovative, new seminar series co-sponsored by the CU Museum of Natural History and the CU Boulder School of Education. This series will cover a variety of topics including learning through making, interactional studies, and contemplative studies of the natural world. All lectures are free and open to CU faculty, alumni, students, educators, and the public.

5:00 PM - 6:00 PM

“L2 Interactional Competence as learning target: What it is and how to teach and research it?”

The concept and development of L2 interactional competence (IC) have gained much attention among researchers in SLA. Studies have empirically documented evidence of how L2 learners make use of linguistic and non-linguistic resources at their disposal when engaged in oral communicative interaction in instructional and non-instructional settings. In her talk, Prof. Taleghani-Nikazm concentrates on understanding interaction and spoken language as understood within a conversation analytical (CA) framework by examining a collection of documented naturally occurring episodes of interaction among L1 speakers in selected languages.  Furthermore, she will discuss how to effectively translate interaction research into pedagogical practice. In her talk, we will look at concrete examples of how to integrate authentic excerpts from everyday interactions into the language curriculum and how to create pedagogical spaces that promote interaction among learners and L2 speakers in the target language.

We are all familiar with human beings, animals, and plants. However, that is just one data point - and the only data point we have for the existence of life. How do we know what to look for when searching for life elsewhere? What assumptions can we make that are valid? In this vast universe, we have already found thousands of exoplanets, born from molecular clouds that are seeded with organic compounds - the building blocks for life. Can we use science and technology to determine whether we're just one incident of life in the universe? Perhaps cosmic neighbors are much closer than we think.

Mustang in Black and White: Himalayan Photography Exhibit (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The University Libraries invite you to an exhibit of Kevin Bubriski's photography of Mustang, Nepal, showing through December 2017 in the 1st Floor, Underground West Gallery of Norlin Library.

"Mustang, Nepal, is known for its vibrant landscapes —blue skies, vermilion-colored cliffs, fluted canyons of deep ochre. It is a tapestry of Himalayan culture and history, a social and economic crossroads for trade, tourism, and Tibetan tradition. Today, the people of Mustang are navigating significant transformations: from the impacts of climate change across this rain shadow landscape to the lived effects of out-migration on communities who have relied for centuries on agriculture, pastoralism, and their role as culture brokers between the Tibetan plateau and Hindu South Asia."

From the new book, Mustang in Black and White by Kevin Buriski and Sienna Craig.

What Cognitive Psychology Says About Learning: 21 Training Principles
2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

Facilitated by Alice Healy, College Professor of Distinction, Department of Psychology and Neuroscience and Institute of Cognitive Science, and Director, Center for Research on Training. Dr. Healy will discuss 21 principles of training, or training tips, to advance the learning of knowledge and skills. There are three forms of task engagement that are the basis of successful training for peak performance—acquisition, retention, and transfer—and three corresponding goals of training—efficiency, durability, and flexibility. Dr. Healy will briefly review each of the training principles organized by their form of task engagement and their corresponding primary goal, and then she will select a subset of these principles to discuss in greater detail, both in terms of the scientific evidence for these principles and in terms of exercises that students can practice using the training tips. The following are the learning goals for the symposium participants: 1. Optimize acquisition of knowledge and skills by maximizing the efficiency of learning. 2. Optimize the retention of knowledge and skills by maximizing the durability of learning. 3. Optimize the transfer of knowledge and skills by maximizing the flexibility of learning.

Autonomous Robotics: Estimation and Nonlinear Dynamics
In this talk, I will discuss algorithms that are addressing critical challenges to robot autonomy: visual-inertial perception with online statistical change detection and drift correction, and adaptive simulation-in-the-loop model predictive control (MPC). Visual-inertial simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) is a technique used to navigate in unknown environments; we have augmented it with the ability to both self-calibrate and correct for calibration drift over time. Our method relies on determining when calibrations have become stale and initiates a new self-calibration when they do, applying calibrations post-hoc for higher accuracy. Nonlinear MPC on the other hand focuses on how to infer optimal control inputs of a high-dimensional nonlinear plant model. I will show how these methods apply to autonomous vehicles moving at fast speeds, and how they extend to novel maneuvers such as jumping and slipping on real platforms.

Stochastic Dynamics of Biomolecular Circuits in Single Cells

In the noisy cellular environment, expression of genes has been shown to be stochastic across organisms ranging from prokaryotic to human cells. Stochastic expression manifests as cell-to-cell variability in the levels of RNAs/proteins, in spite of the fact that cells are genetically identical and are exposed to the same environment. Development of computationally tractable frameworks for modeling stochastic fluctuations in gene product levels is essential to understand how noise at the cellular level affects biological function and phenotype. I will introduce state-of-the-art computational tools for stochastic modeling, analysis and inference of biomolecular circuits. Mathematical methods will be combined with experiments to study  infection dynamics of virus lambda phage in single bacterial cells. A novel approach based on first-passage times is shown to capture stochasticity in viral lysis times, and provide unique insights into regulatory mechanisms essential for precise biological timekeeping.

Seminar meets in ECCR 116
The Revised Common Rule and Beyond: Opportunities for Ethical Innovation
4:30 PM - 6:00 PM

The Revised Common Rule and Beyond: Opportunities for Ethical Innovation

This presentation will consider the 2017 revisions to the regulation for the Protection of Human Subjects in Research (the Common Rule).  We will briefly examine the history and political economy of this regulation, providing some insights into why it took more than seven years for the revisions to occur.  We will consider arguments that our ethical theory is underdeveloped with respect to important provisions of the regulation, a state of affairs that possibly affected both the process and substance of the revisions.  We will discuss what has changed, paying particular attention to implications for non-medical and “big data” research.  As research in education, sociology, economics, and other non-medical domains increasingly includes the collection of specimens and biomarker testing, such research will encounter the same fault lines and complexities in the regulation as biomedical research.  Finally, we note that some research involving humans, their specimens, or their data is not regulated under the Common Rule, but can still raise important ethical concerns.  In such situations, researchers and their institutions have opportunities to develop novel processes for ethics oversight and participant protection.  We will conclude by discussing some proposals for innovative research governance and some barriers to implementing these proposals.

Mustang in Black and White: Himalayan Photography Exhibit (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The University Libraries invite you to an exhibit of Kevin Bubriski's photography of Mustang, Nepal, showing through December 2017 in the 1st Floor, Underground West Gallery of Norlin Library.

"Mustang, Nepal, is known for its vibrant landscapes —blue skies, vermilion-colored cliffs, fluted canyons of deep ochre. It is a tapestry of Himalayan culture and history, a social and economic crossroads for trade, tourism, and Tibetan tradition. Today, the people of Mustang are navigating significant transformations: from the impacts of climate change across this rain shadow landscape to the lived effects of out-migration on communities who have relied for centuries on agriculture, pastoralism, and their role as culture brokers between the Tibetan plateau and Hindu South Asia."

Monday Workshops - Preparing Students to Write a Successful College Paper
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Preparing Students to Write a Successful College Paper

Mark Pleiss, Lead Coordinator, Graduate Teacher Program

It is not always enough just to assign a paper with a rubric. Many college students, especially freshmen, need help processing information, organizing it, and presenting a written argument in a clear way. This workshop will offer a classroom model for teaching students how to break a paper down into manageable pieces and then begin writing it with the support of the instructor and other students in the class. Workshop will be held in ATLAS 301.

Mustang in Black and White: Himalayan Photography Exhibit (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The University Libraries invite you to an exhibit of Kevin Bubriski's photography of Mustang, Nepal, showing through December 2017 in the 1st Floor, Underground West Gallery of Norlin Library.

"Mustang, Nepal, is known for its vibrant landscapes —blue skies, vermilion-colored cliffs, fluted canyons of deep ochre. It is a tapestry of Himalayan culture and history, a social and economic crossroads for trade, tourism, and Tibetan tradition. Today, the people of Mustang are navigating significant transformations: from the impacts of climate change across this rain shadow landscape to the lived effects of out-migration on communities who have relied for centuries on agriculture, pastoralism, and their role as culture brokers between the Tibetan plateau and Hindu South Asia."

From the new book, Mustang in Black and White by Kevin Buriski and Sienna Craig.

            This pair of short courses will provide an overview of Python fundamentals, split into two sessions, each meeting one hour for four weeks.  It is targeted at participants with prior experience programming in another language, but who wish to get up and running with Python.  Topics covered will include variables & objects, functions, conditionals, and loops. We will also discuss how to build custom Python modules and provide an overview of popular 3rd-party packages such as Numpy.  This course will combine lectures with interactive exercises.  It is available free of charge.  Participants must have the following knowledge to be able to participate:  be familiar with fundamental aspects of programming (loop structure, variables, basic data structures), and a laptop.

NOTE:  This course will not cover “how to program” – we that expect you have prior experience in another programming language, and that you want to transition to using Python.

Registration closes September 13 or once full.  Due to anticipated demand, we ask that if you register for a short course you make a commitment to attend all sessions in the course.

Due to the brevity of these sessions, we will not be able to address issues related to a faulty Python installation in-class.  Attendees are expected to arrive with a functional installation of Python 3.x and the following packages installed on their laptop:  Numpy, Matplotlib, h5py, netCDF4, and Pandas.   Installation instructions will be emailed in advance of the course.  Those requiring assistance during the installation process should either attend the September 14 prep session or make a separate appointment with Nick Featherstone (feathern@colorado.edu).

Workshop: Intellectual Property & University Research
1:30 PM - 3:30 PM

Negotiating intellectual property (IP) terms with corporate sponsors can be challenging in the university setting. Our goal at CU Boulder is to work with our principal investigators to find IP terms that are acceptable to our industry partners without hindering the future of our PIs’ research or the mission of the university. This workshop will cover a wide range intellectual property topics including patentable IP, software, and data rights. It will also include an overview of IP terms within federally sponsored research, sponsored student projects, and contracts with other non-profits.

Transdisciplinary Education and CMCI: A Provocation

Is CMCI achieving its potential with regard to innovative undergraduate and graduate education? Is it doing enough to foster curiosity, creativity, critical analysis, and collaborative engagement with the pressing issues of the world? I’ll suggest that the answer to both questions is ‘No’ and argue that we should consider more transformational alternatives than we have to this point. To those ends, I’ll offer a philosophical-cum-historical provocation, embedded in the Pragmatist intellectual tradition, for CMCI to embrace a transdisciplinary vision for undergraduate and graduate education and to begin conversations across our fields about what forms that might take.

Estimation of a Partially Linear Regression in Triangular Systems 
 
Abstract: We propose kernel-based estimators for the components of a partially linear regression in a triangular system where endogenous regressors appear both in the linear and nonparametric components of the regression.  Compared with other estimators currently available in the literature, e.g. the sieve estimators proposed in Ai and Chen (2003) or Otsu (2011), our estimators have explicit functional form and are much easier to implement.  They rely on a set of assumptions introduced by Newey et al. (1999) that characterize what has become known as  the ``control function" approach for endogeneity in regression.  We explore conditional moment restrictions that make this model suitable for additive regression estimation as in Kim et al. (1999) and Manzan and Zerom (2005).  We establish consistency and square-root n asymptotic normality of the estimator for the parameters in the linear component of the model, give a uniform rate of convergence, and establish the asymptotic normality for the estimator of the nonparametric component. In addition, for statistical inference, a consistent estimator for the covariance of the limiting distribution of the parametric estimator is provided.

Title: “Transient Crosslinkers Tune the Patterns of Microtubule Filaments”

Presented by: Jennifer Ross, University of Massachusetts, Amherst 

Abstract: The cell is a complex autonomous machine taking in information, performing computations, and responding to the environment. To enable agile read/write capabilities, much of the molecular biochemistry that performs these computations must be transient and weak, allowing signals to be carried as a function of the concentration of numerous and coupled interactions. Traditionally, biochemical experiments can only measure strongly interacting systems that can last for long times in dilute concentrations. We have developed microscopy measurements to enable to visualization of weak, transient interactions and the resulting emergent behaviors of coupled systems. I will present excerpts from stories where many weak, transient interactions can have strong repercussions on the overall activity and can, in fact, overpower strongly interacting systems. These studies involve the microtubule cytoskeleton and the transport motor, kinesin-1. Our results reveal a fundamentally important aspect of cellular self-organization: weak, transient interacting species can tune their interaction strength directly by tuning the local concentration to act like a rheostat. The tunability of weak, transient interactions is a fundamental activity of biological systems, and our insights will ultimately enable us to learn how to engineer these systems to create biological or biomimetic devices.
Biography: Ross is the director of the new Massachusetts Center for Autonomous Materials (MassCAM) and an award-winning biophysicist studying the organization of the microtubule cytoskeleton and microtubule-based enzymes using high-resolution single molecule imaging techniques. She has a degree in Physics and has studied the microtubule cytoskeleton for over a decade. As a Cottrell Scholar, Ross has pioneered innovative teaching techniques that are being adopted around the world. Specifically, she has taught at several international short courses on microscopy including Analytical and Quantitative Microscopy (AQLM) at the Marine Biology Laboratory and the Bangalore Microscopy Course at the National Centre for Biological Science in Bangalore, India. She has also served as the President of NESM in the past. She is also an advocate for women and under-represented groups and has a blog to help others make it in academics.

Event Image Ann Axtell Morris — Breaking New Ground
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Writer, artist, and archaeologist Ann Axtell Morris inspired young people to study archaeology through the publication of two popular field autobiographies, Digging in Yucatan and Digging in the Southwest. Her books recounted the excitement of discovery and the meticulous care employed by those seeking meaning from ancient artifacts and architecture. Although overshadowed by her more-famous husband, Earl Morris, and early 20th century academics who tended to devalue the contributions of women, this lecture re-examines the significant contributions made by this pioneer archaeologist.

About the Speaker: Inga Calvin, Ph.D., teaches archaeology-focused classes as part of the Residential Academic Program in the Sewall and Baker dorms.  She is a specialist in Classic Period Maya hieroglyphics and pottery. Dr. Calvin co-curated the exhibit Unearthing the Maya: Excavations of Ann and Earl Morris at Chichen Itzá, Mexico, at the University of Colorado Museum-Boulder. Most recently, she is consulting for a forthcoming film about the life of Ann Morris.
Event Image LASP Public Lecture: Monitoring Earth’s Energy Balance from Space
7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

LASP has a long history of measuring the Sun’s radiant energy from high-altitude balloons, sounding rockets, and from satellite platforms in order to understand its influences on Earth’s environment. In the very near term, LASP will measure the Sun’s energy output from a new frontier – the International Space Station – with the launch of the Total and Spectral Solar Irradiance Sensor (TSIS) at the end of November 2017. LASP’s expertise in precision measurements of the Sun has also enabled technological advances for measuring reflected solar radiation, that portion of the Sun’s energy that escapes back to space after interactions with Earth’s atmosphere and surface elements. By using the Sun as a direct calibration source, the Reflected Solar (RS) spectrometer currently being built by LASP engineers for NASA’s CLARREO Pathfinder mission will reduce the uncertainties in measured solar reflectance by approximately an order of magnitude compared to current sensors. The high-accuracy RS measurements will be used to improve the quality of other NASA sensors and for the attribution, testing, and validation of climate change predictions. Come learn how LASP is contributing to space measurements of Earth’s energy balance with the TSIS and CLARREO Pathfinder missions. Along the way, see fun videos of the TSIS platform during testing as it is prepared for launch.

Mustang in Black and White: Himalayan Photography Exhibit (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The University Libraries invite you to an exhibit of Kevin Bubriski's photography of Mustang, Nepal, showing through December 2017 in the 1st Floor, Underground West Gallery of Norlin Library.

"Mustang, Nepal, is known for its vibrant landscapes —blue skies, vermilion-colored cliffs, fluted canyons of deep ochre. It is a tapestry of Himalayan culture and history, a social and economic crossroads for trade, tourism, and Tibetan tradition. Today, the people of Mustang are navigating significant transformations: from the impacts of climate change across this rain shadow landscape to the lived effects of out-migration on communities who have relied for centuries on agriculture, pastoralism, and their role as culture brokers between the Tibetan plateau and Hindu South Asia."

From the new book, Mustang in Black and White by Kevin Buriski and Sienna Craig.

We will also discuss how to build custom Python modules and provide an overview of popular 3rd-party packages such as Numpy.  This course will combine lectures with interactive exercises.  It is available free of charge.  Participants must have the following knowledge to be able to participate:  be familiar with fundamental aspects of programming (loop structure, variables, basic data structures), and a laptop.

NOTE:  This course will not cover “how to program” – we that expect you have prior experience in another programming language, and that you want to transition to using Python.

Registration closes September 13 or once full.  Due to anticipated demand, we ask that if you register for a short course you make a commitment to attend all sessions in the course.

Due to the brevity of these sessions, we will not be able to address issues related to a faulty Python installation in-class.  Attendees are expected to arrive with a functional installation of Python 3.x and the following packages installed on their laptop:  Numpy, Matplotlib, h5py, netCDF4, and Pandas.   Installation instructions will be emailed in advance of the course.  Those requiring assistance during the installation process should either attend the September 14 prep session or make a separate appointment with Nick Featherstone (feathern@colorado.edu).

Space is limited. RSVPs are required to CUJewishStudies@colorado.edu.


Who is She? The Shekhinah, which derives from the Hebrew word for "dwell or settle," is a feminine divine presence, guiding and protecting men and women everywhere. She is power, wisdom, and compassion and has influenced Jews from the ancient world through Second and Third Wave feminism and into the transgender and environmental concerns of the present day. Who is She, how has She empowered us, and how does She appear to us today?

SHE, the third biannual Embodied Judaism Symposium, will explore the concept of Shekhinah, drawing on materials in the Post-Holocaust American Judaism Collections held at the University of Coloraod Boulder. The symposium will feature insight and embodied presentations by Rabbi Dr. Tirzah FirestoneProfessor Joy Ladin, and Professor Samuel Boyd as well as an original performance from dancer and choreographer Robert Sher-Machherndl. The symposium will be accompanied by an exhibit exploring the concept of Shekhinah, which will be on display in CU Boulder's Norlin Library.

The 2017 symposium and exhibit are hosted by the Program in Jewish Studies and the Univeristy Libraries' Special Collections and Archives and made possible by support from Rose Community Foundation, a Research and Innovative Seed Grant, and CU's Departments of Philosophy, History, Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures, Theatre and Dance, Religious Studies, English, and Women and Gender Studies.

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Underneath its dense cloud cover, Jupiter safeguards secrets to the fundamental processes and conditions that governed our solar system during its formation. With its suite of science instruments, Juno investigates the existence of a solid planetary core, maps Jupiter's intense magnetic field, measures the amount of water and ammonia in the deep atmosphere. JUNO is also the first spacecraft to fly over Jupiter’s aurora and measures both the energetic particles raining down on the planet and the bright “northern & southern lights” they excite. NASA’s JUNO mission was launched in August 2011 and put into orbit over Jupiter’s poles on 4th July 2016. As our primary example of a giant planet, Jupiter can also provide critical knowledge for understanding the planetary systems being discovered around other stars.

Mustang in Black and White: Himalayan Photography Exhibit (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The University Libraries invite you to an exhibit of Kevin Bubriski's photography of Mustang, Nepal, showing through December 2017 in the 1st Floor, Underground West Gallery of Norlin Library.

"Mustang, Nepal, is known for its vibrant landscapes —blue skies, vermilion-colored cliffs, fluted canyons of deep ochre. It is a tapestry of Himalayan culture and history, a social and economic crossroads for trade, tourism, and Tibetan tradition. Today, the people of Mustang are navigating significant transformations: from the impacts of climate change across this rain shadow landscape to the lived effects of out-migration on communities who have relied for centuries on agriculture, pastoralism, and their role as culture brokers between the Tibetan plateau and Hindu South Asia."

From the new book, Mustang in Black and White by Kevin Buriski and Sienna Craig.

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Underneath its dense cloud cover, Jupiter safeguards secrets to the fundamental processes and conditions that governed our solar system during its formation. With its suite of science instruments, Juno investigates the existence of a solid planetary core, maps Jupiter's intense magnetic field, measures the amount of water and ammonia in the deep atmosphere. JUNO is also the first spacecraft to fly over Jupiter’s aurora and measures both the energetic particles raining down on the planet and the bright “northern & southern lights” they excite. NASA’s JUNO mission was launched in August 2011 and put into orbit over Jupiter’s poles on 4th July 2016. As our primary example of a giant planet, Jupiter can also provide critical knowledge for understanding the planetary systems being discovered around other stars.

Mustang in Black and White: Himalayan Photography Exhibit (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The University Libraries invite you to an exhibit of Kevin Bubriski's photography of Mustang, Nepal, showing through December 2017 in the 1st Floor, Underground West Gallery of Norlin Library.

"Mustang, Nepal, is known for its vibrant landscapes —blue skies, vermilion-colored cliffs, fluted canyons of deep ochre. It is a tapestry of Himalayan culture and history, a social and economic crossroads for trade, tourism, and Tibetan tradition. Today, the people of Mustang are navigating significant transformations: from the impacts of climate change across this rain shadow landscape to the lived effects of out-migration on communities who have relied for centuries on agriculture, pastoralism, and their role as culture brokers between the Tibetan plateau and Hindu South Asia."

Preparing a Syllabus that Encourages Cooperation in the Classroom
10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

Faciliated by Jillian Heydt-Stevenson, Professor of English. In this seminar, we will cover the basic elements necessary on a clear, concise syllabus. One of our primary goals will be to learn ways to articulate on the syllabus guidelines for student behavior in a world where many are no longer taught or know how to respond with respect to their professors or fellow students. The major aspects we will cover that seem to me foundational in explaining these expectations are Cooperation and Self-Direction, two elements crucial in interactions occurring in class discussions, office hours, and emails.

THE CU BOULDER DEPARTMENT OF HISTORY AND THE OFFICE OF DIVERSITY, EQUITY, AND COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT PRESENT
A Charlottesville in Historical Perspective Forum: Monuments & Memorialization in American History

At the center of the recent events in Charlottesville, Virginia was a statue of the Confederate General Robert E. Lee, a monument that the city had decided to remove from a public park and that subsequently served as a focal point for the “Unite the Right” rally that occurred there in August. Using this controversy as our launching point, this forum will address the complex politics of public monuments and memorialization, using examples from both the American South, where monuments to the Confederacy sit at the center of current controversy, and Colorado and the West, where memorials have raised similar questions about how we remember our region’s complicated racial history.

Panelists will share brief opening statements and then we will open the floor to questions and discussion. 

Featuring: Patricia Nelson Limerick, Peter Wood, and Phoebe Young, with Paul Sutter moderating.

Statistics in R
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

This 2-hour workshop is an introduction to statistics in R and is the third of a four-part 2017 Fall Semester R workshop series, sponsored by the Center for Research Data & Digital Scholarship.

During the first hour, we will use the same dataset used in the first workshops to decide on appropriate relationships to examine. We will learn how to implement commonly used basic statistical tests (e.g., t-tests, linear regression), and learn how to check their underlying assumptions. We will also learn how to visualize and interpret the results, and review some common errors in statistics. We will spend the second hour practicing these skills on a dataset of our own. Prerequisites: R and RStudio installed, knowledge of data manipulation and basic plotting in R. All participants need to bring a laptop; option to bring own dataset.

Mustang in Black and White: Himalayan Photography Exhibit (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The University Libraries invite you to an exhibit of Kevin Bubriski's photography of Mustang, Nepal, showing through December 2017 in the 1st Floor, Underground West Gallery of Norlin Library.

"Mustang, Nepal, is known for its vibrant landscapes —blue skies, vermilion-colored cliffs, fluted canyons of deep ochre. It is a tapestry of Himalayan culture and history, a social and economic crossroads for trade, tourism, and Tibetan tradition. Today, the people of Mustang are navigating significant transformations: from the impacts of climate change across this rain shadow landscape to the lived effects of out-migration on communities who have relied for centuries on agriculture, pastoralism, and their role as culture brokers between the Tibetan plateau and Hindu South Asia."

From the new book, Mustang in Black and White by Kevin Buriski and Sienna Craig.

            This pair of short courses will provide an overview of Python fundamentals, split into two sessions, each meeting one hour for four weeks.  It is targeted at participants with prior experience programming in another language, but who wish to get up and running with Python.  Topics covered will include variables & objects, functions, conditionals, and loops. We will also discuss how to build custom Python modules and provide an overview of popular 3rd-party packages such as Numpy.  This course will combine lectures with interactive exercises.  It is available free of charge.  Participants must have the following knowledge to be able to participate:  be familiar with fundamental aspects of programming (loop structure, variables, basic data structures), and a laptop.

NOTE:  This course will not cover “how to program” – we that expect you have prior experience in another programming language, and that you want to transition to using Python.

Registration closes September 13 or once full.  Due to anticipated demand, we ask that if you register for a short course you make a commitment to attend all sessions in the course.

Due to the brevity of these sessions, we will not be able to address issues related to a faulty Python installation in-class.  Attendees are expected to arrive with a functional installation of Python 3.x and the following packages installed on their laptop:  Numpy, Matplotlib, h5py, netCDF4, and Pandas.   Installation instructions will be emailed in advance of the course.  Those requiring assistance during the installation process should either attend the September 14 prep session or make a separate appointment with Nick Featherstone (feathern@colorado.edu).

Addressing Challenging Situations in the Classroom
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Facilitated by Anna Spain Bradley, Associate Professor of Law and Assistant Vice Provost of Faculty Development and Diversity. This workshop will explore common challenges that faculty and students face in the classroom context. The workshop aims to raise examples and explore best practices. For example, a student questions your authority as a professor in front of the class. What should you do? A student faces personal challenges that are affecting his or her performance in class. How might you best assist and when are you required to consult other campus resources? How can you best teach material that deals with aspects of individual identity such as race, gender or sexual orientation and related concerns about bias and discrimination? This workshop will engage these and other common challenges and provide participants with a framework for understanding what is taking place and how you can best respond given your identity and the identity of those involved. The workshop is interactive. Please register to attend this event by emailing: ftep@colorado.edu.

Event Image The Outer Reaches of Inner Space
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Most people alive today have spent their entire existence within the Space Age. The more we learn about outer space, the more we understand how our inner space was shaped by it.  As such, some ethnologists have proposed that a new mythology is the expected result of that understanding. Which world view should we embrace?  Belief in Mythology, or Understanding of Science? What are some salient features of the cosmos that help us understand our inner space? The transformation of our culture by technology, coupled with new insights of our planetary neighbors and beyond, provide a test of our ability to construct new mythologies to explain it all to the human mind.
