ICS Colloquium - Philip Weiser
12:00 PM - 2:00 PM

February 10, 2017
12-2PM
Muen D428/430

Philip Weiser

Hatfield Professor of Law, Executive Director of the Silicon Flatirons Center, Faculty Director, Campus Innovation & Entrepreneurship Initiative, and Dean Emeritus (School of Law); University of Colorado Boulder

Topic: Why Every Academic Needs to Be An Innovator and Entrepreneur

Abstract: The changing dynamics affecting higher education call on all faculty, staff, and students to develop innovative and entrepreneurial mindsets because the world around us is changing faster than ever before. This vision is both compatible with and supportive of the traditional commitment to liberal arts education. It requires, however, that those involved in higher education recognize the changing financial pressures, the evolving employment marketplace, and the competencies that are valued in the 21st century economy and society.

For higher education to adjust and thrive in the twenty first century, it must adopt an innovation mindset in order to ensure that students will benefit from their investment in undergraduate or graduate experiences. Using the challenges faced by law schools as a case study (applications to law school declined by 40% in the wake of the Great Recession), Professor Weiser will explain how an innovation mindset can help the University of Colorado Boulder thrive as the higher education environment continues to evolve.

All colloquia take place on Friday from 12:00 to 2:00 pm (unless otherwise noted) in Room D428 and D430 on the fourth floor of the Muenzinger Psychology Building.

If you have questions, please call the ICS Office at 303-492-5063.

Inclusive Classroom Discussion: A Strategy for Real-Time Recognition, Assessment and Response to Implicit Bias and Microaggression

Valentina Iturbe-LaGrave, Assistant Director for Inclusive Teaching Practices, University of Denver

Participants unpack key terms and work through a simplified strategy for recognizing, assessing and responding to implicit bias and microaggression in everyday classroom interactions. The goal is to enact inclusive pedagogical practices to increase intrapersonal and interpersonal awareness and critically engage with our curriculum to address behaviors contributing to an uncomfortable and/or hostile learning environment.

APPM Department Colloquium - Doug Nychka

Large and non-stationary spatial fields: Quantifying uncertainty in the pattern scaling of climate models

Pattern scaling has proved to be a useful way to extend and interpret Earth system model (i.e. climate) simulations. In the simplest case the response of local temperatures is assumed to be a linear function of the global temperature. This relationship makes it possible to consider many different scenarios of warming by using simpler climate models to infer global temperatures and then translating those results locally based on the scaling pattern deduced from a more complex model. This work explores a methodology using spatial statistics to quantify how the pattern varies across an ensemble of model runs. The key is to represent the pattern uncertainty as a Gaussian process with a spatially varying covariance function. We found that when applied to the NCAR/DOE CESM1 large ensemble experiment we are able to reproduce the heterogenous variation of the pattern among ensemble members. Also these data present an opportunity to fit a large, fixed-rank Kriging model (LatticeKrig) to give a global representation of the covariance function. The climate model output at 1 degree resolution has more than 50,000 spatial locations and so requires special numerical approaches to fit the covariance function and simulate files.  Much of the local statistical computations are embarrassingly parallel and the analysis can be accelerated by parallel tools within the R statistical environment.

Event Image Global Warming Demystified
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Do you have questions about the science or reality of global warming? This presentation by noted educator Jeffrey Bennett should answer them, while showing that the solutions to this important problem are ones that people of all political persuasions can agree on. The level is suitable for middle school age and up, and draws from Dr. Bennett’s book, A Global Warming Primer.

Astrophysicist/author Jeffrey Bennett, winner of the American Institute of Physics Science Communication Award, has been teaching about global warming for more than 30 years. He is the lead author of college textbooks in astronomy, astrobiology, mathematics, and statistics, of five critically acclaimed books for the general public, and of a children’s series selected as the first books to be read aloud from the International Space Station for “Story Time From Space.”

“Catapult” presents the dynamic explorations of four BFA candidates. These burgeoning artists use dance to present and examine questions of the Renaissance and its dimensional read of the female body, anxiety’s impact on perception, racially homogeneous rabbits and the meta-modern, and an individual’s sense of time and internal rhythm. Experience the richness and curiosity of embodied research as presented through faceted physicality and inventive choreography.

José Rivera’s “References to Salvador Dali Make Me Hot” is a gripping, fantastical story told with Dali-esque magical realism. Gabriela is uprooted from the South Bronx when her husband, Benito, is stationed in the middle of the desert after the Persian Gulf war. She confides in her only friends, the Moon, Coyote, Cat and her next-door neighbor Martin. The real and the imaginary come together to tell a story of one woman’s lofty dreams to be freed from her stifling, mundane life.
