In this 3-part workshop, participants interact with educators from a range of disciplines to design authentic writing assignments that reflect three interconnected concepts from writing-in-the-disciplines: writing situation, genre, and disciplinarity. The workshop emphasizes the socially situated nature of academic literacy, and views academic writing as a complex social activity that is content- and context-contingent. This approach locates writing squarely in the social world—in disciplinary communities with their own discourse practices—and views students as apprentices in the disciplines. The primary aim of this approach is to facilitate knowledge translation, knowledge uptake, and academic literacy through authentic assignment design. The workshop facilitators model writing assignments in several academic genres, while accounting for disciplinarity, and participants receive feedback from peers on their assignment design. Workshop Facilitators: Jonathan Otto holds a doctorate in geography with a focus on development and environmental justice. As a Lecturer in Arts Studies in Research and Writing (ASRW), he draws on the concepts of writing situation, genre, and disciplinarity to challenge his students to embrace research and writing as social and political practices. Patty A. Kelly holds a doctorate in rhetoric, writing, and discourse studies. As Program Manager for the Centre for Writing and Scholarly Communication, she uses evidence-based pedagogies to design and deliver writing services and programs that enhance scholarly communication across the disciplines.

In 2017, UBC added a lay summary requirement to all theses and dissertations, and more and more academic journals, public policy institutes, and granting agencies require researchers to provide summaries of their studies for non-specialists. But how do experts communicate specialized research to non-specialist audiences? This workshop helps researchers understand how lay summaries differ from abstracts, the multiple purposes of lay summaries, and how lay summaries enhance science communication and increase research visibility. Participants will write or revise a lay summary (thesis, dissertation, research article), and receive feedback from the workshop facilitators and other participants. Therefore, this workshop is most useful for those with a research project underway.

Making the transition from employee to supervisor is a shift that can be challenging – especially if supervisors have received little training in how to handle their new responsibilities. This learning session is an opportunity for participants to consider what moving to a supervisory role means. Often those who find themselves in this role on either a short-term, acting, or permanent basis discover that the job looks and feels different than anticipated. This is a highly interactive, hands-on, practical, skill-building workshop using participants’ real front-line examples. Objectives: * identify traits of your most effective supervisor * define the necessary mind-shift from co-worker to supervisor * recognize the common mistakes of new supervisors * analyse tips from seasoned supervisors * define “What’s my Role?” – an overview of what is now expected of you * practice giving and receiving feedback for positive results * develop a Plan of Action for immediate application back at work Facilitated by Joyanne Landers, Elephant Ears Training. Joyanne Landers has gained a solid reputation for over twenty-five years as a facilitator and trainer. Her plain talk, humour, and boundless enthusiasm are contagious.

Free. The Public Knowledge Project at 21: Activism, Scholarship, Security Patches A Conversation with Professor John Willinsky Co-hosted by the UBC Library and the UBC iSchool (Library, Archival and Information Studies) Date/location: July 11, 2019, 2:00-3:30pm Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, Lillooet Room | UBC Vancouver Campus Light refreshments will be served. On or around December 1998, a UBC professor of education inadvertently stepped out of his field of study and into the realm of scholarly communication, having been thrown off course by a glaring contradiction between teaching the young to read – on the promise that it would open worlds for them – and working in an academic system that needlessly cut such readers off from the world of learning in which he worked. His response was to create a Public Knowledge Project that soon attracted the attention, support, and, at one point, the censure of The University of British Columbia Library. Although this talk begins on a personal note, it soon leaps ahead to the current state of scholarly communication. Here, it sets out PKP’s continuing efforts to open that world of learning take the form of building out open infrastructure in the face of corporate lock-in, initiating economic models for universal open access, and proposing copyright reform as an advance over the legal workarounds of open access policies.

On July 12, Dr. Jennifer Jacquet will discuss some of her recent research to understand fisheries on the high seas, and how it relates to the current negotiations at the United Nations regarding a legally binding instrument for the conservation and sustainable use of the high seas. She will also discuss some unsustainable trends in aquaculture and opportunities to be more normative in aquaculture research. Jennifer Jacquet works on global cooperation dilemmas, including climate change, the internet wildlife trade, and overfishing. She worked with Daniel Pauly’s the Sea Around Us Project at the University of British Columbia for her PhD and joined New York University (NYU) in 2012, where she is now an Associate Professor.

Speaker: Tracy Roberts, University of Birmingham Location: Room 700, 828 W. 10th Ave. Vancouver General Hospital Research Pavilion The reach and influence of screening programmes are considered important for public health in many countries. Screening comprises tests offered to apparently ‘healthy’ and certainly asymptomatic individuals, identifying those deemed to need further investigations or treatment. The potential for overestimating the benefits of screening is well documented but the quantification of the associated harms, often referred to as disutility, has been largely overlooked in model based economic evaluations. This presentation will focus on these issues in the context two contrasting case studies of screening interventions and their impact on policy in the UK – pulse oximetry as a screening test for critical congenital heart defects in newborn infants and breast cancer screening. It will discuss methods and challenges for quantifying the harms and report an empirical study explicitly focused on quantifying the utility and disutility associated with screening for one of these case studies. Finally it will reflect upon the risk of misplaced policy decision unless the decision process includes the appropriate utilities and disutility’s associated with screening. Tracy Roberts is Professor of Health Economics and Head of Unit in the Health Economics Unit at the Institute of Applied Health Research in the College of Medical and Dental Sciences at the University of Birmingham. This seminar is cosponsored by the Canadian Centre for Applied Research in Cancer Control, The Centre for Clinical Epidemiology and Evaluation, and the UBC Centre for Health Services and Policy Research.

Free. Title: Using Mathematics to help fight blindness. Abstract: Computer (in silico) experiments in this area have given researchers invaluable insights and in some cases re-directed experimental research and theory. With mathematics and in silico experiments we will explore the experimentally observed photoreceptor death and rescue in retinal degeneration and provide a framework for future physiological investigations and potential ways to circumvent blindness. Speaker Biography: Dr. Erika T. Camacho grew up in East Los Angeles and was taught by Jaime Escalante at Garfield High School. She received her B.A. in Mathematics and Economics from Wellesley College. After earning her Ph.D. in applied mathematics at Cornell University, she spent a year as a researcher at Los Alamos National Laboratory. She then held a tenure-track faculty position at Loyola Marymount University before joining the faculty at ASU in 2007. She was the recipient of the 2014 Presidential Award for Excellence in Science, Mathematics and Engineering Mentoring (PAESMEM) and was only the 4th female mathematician to have been bestowed this honor. She is also the recipient of the 2019 AAAS mentor award. She was a 2013-2014 MLK Visiting Assistant Professor of Mathematics at MIT. She cofounded the Applied Mathematical Sciences Summer Institute (AMSSI) and co-directed other summer programs dedicated to the recruitment of undergraduate women, underrepresented minorities, and those that might not otherwise have the opportunity.

Thesis and research article literature reviews accomplish several purposes for scholars. In the introduction, for example, writers review relevant research in order to establish a research gap or knowledge deficit that the current study addresses. But how do writers summarize the scholarly conversation already underway and, then, join that conversation? This workshop introduces researchers to the typical structure of the literature review in thesis and article introductions, while accounting for variation in communicative purposes and disciplinary differences. Participants will write or revise a literature review (thesis, dissertation, research article), and receive feedback from the workshop facilitators and other participants. Therefore, this workshop is most useful for those with a research project underway.
