Stop Grading, Start Teaching: Revolutionize Your Class with Online Evaluation

Brian Yales, Spanish Instructor, Red Rocks Community College

This workshop will show you how to replace traditional in-class evaluations with online competency-based quizzes and produce the following results: more class time dedicated to discussion and practice; increased student incentives to learn at a higher level; a higher level of student accountability and engagement; a more adaptive learning process that allows students to work more efficiently; increased interaction between students; and increased interaction between student and instructor. Learn how to spend less time grading and dedicate more of your energy the aspects of teaching that you love.

Special Colloquium "Strategies for searches of physics beyond the Standard Model in the XXI century"
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Presented by: Manuel Franco Sevilla, University of California, Santa Barbara
NOTE SPECIAL LOCATION: DUAN G130

Abstract: At the end of the XIX century, Lord Kelvin summarized a widespread feeling among physicists by saying that "physics is essentially complete, save for two little clouds". The "clouds" he was (apocryphally) referring to were the puzzling results from two measurements, the Michelson-Morley experiment and the Black-body spectrum, whose explanations ushered in an unprecedented era of discoveries that stretched throughout most of the XX century. After the culmination of the Standard Model in the 70's, the field of particle physics has found itself in a similar situation. Today, the "clouds" guiding the searches for physics beyond the Standard Model are issues like dark matter or the hierarchy problem. Using SUSY searches at CMS and the measurement of B->D(*)TauNu decays at BaBar as models, I will give an overview of some of the main strategies that are being followed in the quest to find new physics in the XXI century.
