ARAB 1020 001 (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

ARAB 1020 001 - Muhammed
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!)

11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Home: American photography at the CU Art Museum
March 2 - July 15, 2017

Is home “where the heart is”? Is it a building, a landscape or a state of mind? Drawn from the photography collection of the CU Art Museum, Home investigates how American photographers working from the late 1800s to today have engaged with these questions. Through a presentation of landscapes, family photos and candid portraits visitors are invited to consider central themes of the exhibition, including environment, nostalgia and family.

What does home mean to you?
We invite our guests to respond to the images and ideas presented in the exhibition by visiting a special programming space in our FlexSpace gallery, open from February 2, 2017–March 25, 2017.

This exhibition is generously supported by CU-Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

OIEC Information Session: Colorado Pregnancy Legislation
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

On Dec. 8, 2016, the Office of Institutional Equity and Compliance (OIEC) circulated an Administrative eMemo regarding recent Colorado legislation passed into law. Read the full memo text here. The new law, effective Aug. 10, 2016, requires Colorado employers to engage in an interactive process to assess potential reasonable accommodations for applicants and employees for conditions related to pregnancy and childbirth.

In an effort to educate CU Boulder employees, the OIEC has scheduled information sessions. Employees will learn about applicable rights as a pregnant employee and supervisors will learn about necessary requirements as a state of Colorado employer.

History Department Pedagogy & Practice Workshop #2 Convened by Anne E. Lester & Marcia Yonemoto
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Workshop 2: “What Is Inclusive Pedagogy and How Do We Implement It?”

Wednesday March 15, 12-1pm

UMC 245

(lunch will be provided)

 

One useful definition of inclusive pedagogy, provided by the MASP program at CU, is: “a student-centered approach to learning that ‘attends to student differences and takes deliberate steps to ensure that all students, across differences in academic and social background as well as physical and cognitive abilities, feel welcomed, valued, challenged and supported in their academic work’ (language drawn from Georgetown University’s Center for New Designs in Learning and Scholarship). This pedagogy manifests itself in many ways, including encouraging involvement from all students, providing equal access to information and opportunities, using evidence-based pedagogical practices shown to close achievement gaps, deliberately incorporating material and citations from a diverse array of scholars, deliberately diversifying examples in lectures/problems/readings, deliberately designing syllabi and course materials with diverse student audiences in mind, and learning about and addressing implicit biases and stereotype threat.”

 

This is a tall order and we will discuss how we can address, implement, and integrate such models and ideals within the history curriculum and courses specifically, in part by utilizing some basic principles of “inclusive design for learning” (IDL).

 

Proposed Readings: Caroline Walker Bynum, et. al., “In the Humanities Classroom,” Common Knowledge 23.1 (2016): 57-103 (but reads very quickly as very anecdotal) (to be circulated electronically); handouts on IDL will be provided at the session.

Mary Czerwinski: Lessons Learned from Designing Interventions for Health and Wellbeing
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Affective computing is emerging as an important field in the design of emotional, intelligent, conversational agents that can be used in the healthcare arena, but also in everyday life. In addition, ubiquitous recording, both in the field and in the doctor's office/patient's home, has influenced how we think about wellbeing in the future. In our research, we use sensing technologies to develop contextualized and precise delivery of interventions, both in terms of the content and in the timing the intervention delivery, using machine learning algorithms. I will discuss how we use affective computing technologies to deliver just in time health interventions for improved health and for personal, behavioral reflection. For example, I will describe the Entendre project, which has implications for the design of visual feedback to encourage empathic patient-centered communication. I will also talk about ParentGuardian, a wearable sensing system that delivers just in time interventions to parents with ADHD children. In addition, I'll present our findings from two applications that deliver interventions and skills from psychology for coping with conditions ranging from general stress and depression to serious mental illness, like the intent to commit suicide, using conversational agents that users trust. Finally, I'll briefly touch on some of our designs for helping users to reflect on their daily behaviors in order to improve general well-being.

Dr. Mary Czerwinski is a Principal Researcher and Research Manager of the Visualization and Interaction (VIBE) Research Group. Mary's latest research focuses primarily on emotion tracking and intervention design and delivery, information worker task management and health and wellness for individuals and groups. Her research background is in visual attention and multitasking. She holds a Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology from Indiana University in Bloomington. Mary was awarded the ACM SIGCHI Lifetime Service Award, was inducted into the CHI Academy, and became an ACM Distinguished Scientist in 2010. She also received the Distinguished Alumni award from Indiana University's Brain and Psychological Sciences department in 2014. Mary became a Fellow of the ACM in 2016.
