Free admission. <img src="https://belkin.ubc.ca/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/03_Globule.jpg> Drift: Art and Dark Matter September 10-December 5, 2021 GALLERY HOURS: Tuesday to Friday, 10am-5pm; Saturday and Sunday, noon-5pm; closed Mondays and Holidays An invisible matter is having a gravitational effect on everything. Without the gravity of this “dark” matter, galaxies would fly apart. Observational data in astroparticle physics indicate that it exists, but so far dark matter hasn’t been directly detected. Given the contours of such an unknown, artists Nadia Lichtig, Josèfa Ntjam, Anne Riley and Jol Thoms reflect on the “how” and “why” of physics and art as diverse and interrelating practices of knowledge. Through openness to exchange between disciplines, they have created works that are sensory agents between scientific ideas of dark matter and the exploration of that which has never been directly sensed. For Drift: Art and Dark Matter, these four artists were invited to make new work while engaging with physicists, chemists and engineers contributing to the search for dark matter at SNOLAB’s facility in Sudbury, two kilometres below the surface of the Earth. The title Drift draws from the mining term for a horizontal tunnel, in this case the hot underground passageway in the copper and nickel mine stretching between the elevator and the clean lab spaces of SNOLAB. The project thereby begins from a reflection on the forms and energies that connect physics to art, labour, landscapes, cultures and histories.

The English poet and author Geoffrey Chaucer once observed that “in forme of speche is change." While he understood that words change, he didn’t reflect on grammar, pronunciation and word order. A written language for more than 1,200 years, today’s English is radically different from the language’s earliest written origins. Trace the English language through its three major stages: Old English (AD 500 to 1100), Middle English (1100 to 1500) and Modern English (1500 to present). Explore how pronunciation, meaning and word forms have evolved from the earliest times to now, and how sentence structure has changed. Understand the social and historical factors that bring about language change. By the end of the course, you’ll: understand the origins of English and its place with respect to other languages of the world recognize the major stages of the English language and important changes in the development of English appreciate that languages inevitably change, and that the current state of the English language is a result of these historical changes. Course Overview: Week 1: Why Study the History of English, and Major Stages and Myths About English Week 2: The English Family Tree Week 3: How English Pronunciation Has Changed, and English Dialects Around the World Week 4: How Grammar Has Evolved Week 5: English Standardization, Dictionaries and Grammar Week 6: The English Vocabulary and Its Social Contexts Dr. LESLIE ARNOVICK, PhD, has been a professor of English at UBC since 1987.

Keeping fit and feeling well into the post-retirement years is a hot topic these days. Nearly 10 percent of the world’s population is 65 or older, according to the United Nations, and that is projected to rise to 16 percent – or one in six people – by 2050. So as we are living longer, how do we stay vital and energetic? How do we continue to contribute meaningfully to the community? And how do we keep our minds sharp? Those are just some of the issues experts will address at the Oct. 1 global panel discussion entitled, “Healthy Ageing.” Panelists: Dr. Judith Hall Dr. John Helliwell Emeritus Professor Jochen Ehrich Emeritus Professor Sir Les Ebdon Moderators: Professor Luigi Campanella Dr. Anne Junker Audience - All Students Audience - Faculty and Staff - Okanagan Audience - Faculty and Staff - Vancouver Audience - Graduate Students Audience - Undergraduate Students Subject - International Subject - Learning And Research - Arts, Humanities And Social Sciences Subject - Learning And Research - Community Subject - Learning And Research - Health Subject - Learning And Research - Science And Technology Type - Seminar Employer Virtual Information Session: Marsh & McLennan Companies https://www.calendar.events.ubc.ca/cal/event/eventView.do?subid=94559&calPath=%2Fpublic%2FEvents+Calendar%2FCareer+Services&guid=CAL-09d22401-7beeee20-017b-f21af172-0000001amyubc-team@interchange.ubc.ca&recurrenceId= Fri, 01 Oct 2021 10:00 PDT Fri, October 1, 2021 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM UBC Vancouver Campus.

Speaker: Dr. Rashid Sumaila University Killam Professor IOF and SPPGA When we look around us we see the decline of renewable natural resources such as fish stocks and forests; the pollution of the environment, e.g., marine plastic pollution; and the warming, acidification, and deoxygenation of the ocean, and we wonder why? Well, in this talk and in my forthcoming book Infinity fish: Economics and the future of fish and fisheries, I argue that these depletions and destructions of nature are partly due to the way we value the environment (including our ocean and the marine life it holds) and how we value or not value all the amazing services it provides us. The lack of proper valuation of the goods and services derived from the environment is a fundamental reason why we have so far failed to take good care of the ocean (and the environment at large). It is essential that we get these valuations right, so that the ocean can, in turn, continue to take care of us. This will ensure that we achieve Infinity fish, that is, the simple idea that we must double our efforts to bequeath a healthy ocean and fisheries to our children and grandchildren so they too can have the option to do the same. Rashid Sumaila is a Professor and Canada Research Chair (Tier 1) in Interdisciplinary Ocean and Fisheries Economics at the Institute for the Oceans and Fisheries, and the School of Public Policy and Global Affairs, University of British Columbia. His research focuses on bioeconomics, marine ecosystem valuation and the analysis of global issues such as fisheries subsidies, marine protected areas, illegal fishing, climate change, marine plastic pollution, and oil spills. Sumaila has experience working in fisheries and natural resource projects in Norway, Canada and the North Atlantic region, Namibia and the Southern African region, Ghana and the West African region and Hong Kong and the South China Sea. Dr. Sumaila received his Ph.D. (Economics) from the University of Bergen and his B.Sc. (Quantity Surveying) from the Ahmadu Bello University. Sumaila is widely published and cited. He won the 2017 Volvo Environment Prize and was named a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada in 2019.

A vibrant and transportive night of music, dance, and words—this is Café Buenos Aires! Tango classics by the likes of Horacio Salgán, Julián Plaza, and Mariano Mores are interwoven with scene-setting readings of Latin literary giants such as Borges and Neruda, and set in electrifying motion by a pair of masterful dancers. The result is a textured immersion in the world of Argentine tango, inspired by the liveliest Buenos Aires cabarets. Through solos, duos, and ensemble pieces, acclaimed clarinetist and UBC Music faculty member Jose Franch-Ballester’s program highlights the considerable talents of violinist David Gillham, pianist Amanda Chan, guitarist Itamar Erez, and bassist Noah Reitman, and showcases the “clarinetango” style in playful partnership between Franch-Ballester’s clarinet and the bandoneon of arranger Douglas Schmidt. Ambassadors and epitomizers of the form, the Argentinian-born Roxana and Fabian Belmonte are beautifully emotive tango dancers who have performed and taught internationally for more than three decades. Fresh, faithful, and absorbing, Café Buenos Aires celebrates the finest Argentinian tango.

Hybrid working arrangements are not new. In fact, as early as 2002, organizations were actively implementing alternative work arrangements to accommodate different locations, time zones and organizational needs. Since then, research has highlighted the similarities and differences that come with working in a hybrid environment and further surfaced how leaders can successfully develop their hybrid teams, create inclusive and collaborative cultures and achieve their strategic objectives. Drawing upon the work of Patrick Lencioni and research into hybrid team dynamics, this 90-minutes workshop will explore effective leadership practices shown to strengthen trust, enhance communication, build shared commitment and accountability and drive results. After this session, participants will be able to: Understand the relationship between physical distance and perceived closeness in the context of remote and hybrid teams. Be able to demonstrate effective practices aligned to Lencioni’s model of effective team leadership Better understand their role in building and maintaining trust in hybrid teams. Have assessed their own approach and designed solutions to enhance engagement.

There is a delicate balance involved in presenting ideas suitably objectively and confidently, while acknowledging or limiting other possible interpretations, and the mechanisms to tread this fine line can seem opaque and arbitrary. This workshop will present a linguistic framework to help you navigate positioning in your writing. By understanding the various ways you can include, exclude, allow for or limit other views and perspectives, you can be more persuasive through strategic writing.</p> <p>Participants should bring two texts to the workshop: a published article or other text from their field that they aspire to emulate, and a piece of their own writing in an editable form, preferably a work-in-progress.</p> <p><strong>Facilitator:</strong> Dr Jodie Martin is an educational linguist specializing in academic writing, who currently works as an Academic English lecturer in the Science stream at Vantage College. Her experience includes researching and teaching language and communication in disciplines ranging from music to education to management to health sciences to social media.

As a way to promote science communication, many open access journals, public policy institutes, and granting agencies require researchers to provide summaries of their studies for non-specialists. But how do scholars communicate specialized research to non-specialist audiences, and why?</p> <p>This workshop introduces graduate and postdoctoral researchers to some of the ways in which lay summaries differ from scientific abstracts, the multiple purposes of lay summaries, and how lay summaries enhance science communication. Participants will write or revise a draft lay summary during dedicated writing time and receive feedback from the facilitator and peers. Therefore, this workshop is most useful for those with a research project underway.</p> <p><strong>Facilitator:</strong> <a href="https://writing.library.ubc.ca/about/who-we-are/patty-kelly/" target="_blank">Dr. Patty Kelly</a>, Centre for Writing and Scholarly Communication<br /> <br /> <strong>Date & Time:</strong> Wednesday, October 6, 2021: 10am - 12pm PT<br /> <br /> <p><strong>Location:</strong>This workshop is delivered in person and on Zoom.</p> <p><strong>In person:</strong> IKBLC, Level 3, Dodson Room; <strong>Zoom:</strong> Registrants will receive the Zoom link 1 day prior to the workshop.</p> <p>The Centre for Writing and Scholarly Communication does not record workshops or share workshop slides.</p> <p>Questions about this event?

Indigenous students are welcome to drop-in to connect with Amy Vozel, Manager of Student Support Services with the Early Alert Program in the Office of the Vice President, Students. Sometimes we face challenges and don’t know where to turn or who to ask for help. Whether it be concerns related to our health, our academics, finances and/or a variety of other realms, life happens and difficulties arise that may stand in the way of being able to thrive as a person, and as a student. It’s OK to ask for help. Through the Early Alert Program, Amy supports student wellbeing by partnering with colleagues and units across campus to connect students with the most appropriate resources and support services to (ideally) allow for earlier support before difficulties become overwhelming. Rest assured, Early Alert is confidential and is not connected to a student’s academic record. Early Alert exists to lend a supportive hand, and to navigate and streamline services to help students get back on track and move forward in their personal and professional goals at UBC. Visit Amy on Wednesdays 2-4 pm at the Wellness Centre, Room 1400 in the Life Building.

FEATURING Dr. Daniel Lakens, Associate Professor in the Human-Technology interaction group at Eindhoven University of Technology. TITLE The New Heuristics, and Good Statistics ABSTRACT Scientific reform in the last decade has led to a wide range of proposed changes in how we design, analyse, report, and publish scientific findings. As the implementation of better research practices spreads through the scientific community, there is a risk of merely changing old flawed heuristics with new flawed heuristics. In this talk, I will discuss some examples of norms scientists rely on when they design and analyse studies, and that editors rely on when evaluating work, without knowing why these norms exist, even though these norms often make no sense. I’ll discuss some practices that go against norms, but would improve how we do science. I’ll also offer some reflections on what would be needed to improve scientists’ strong reliance on norms, and look forward to hearing your thoughts on this challenge. BIO Dr. Daniel Lakens’ areas of expertise include meta-science, research methods and applied statistics. Daniel’s main lines of empirical research focus on conceptual thought, similarity, and meaning. He also focuses on how to design and interpret studies, applied (meta)-statistics, and reward structures in science. A large part of his work deals with developing methods for critically reviewing and optimally structuring studies. Daniel has a background in experimental psychologist and received his Ph.D. from Utrecht University in 2010. Daniel’s research is funded by an NWO VIDI grant for a project that aims to improve the reliability and efficiency of psychological science. He has also convinced NWO to start a pilot project with grants dedicated to replication research. He teaches an online MOOC on ‘Improving Your Statistical Inferences’, and won a TU/e Teacher of the Year award in 2014. He has given over 40 workshops on open science and improving research practices, co-edited a special issue consisting of pre-registered replication studies with Brian Nosek.

Speaker: Dr. Gideon Mordecai Research Associate, IOF <img src="https://fisheries.sites.olt.ubc.ca/files/2019/08/Salmonviris-slideshow.jpg"> A better understanding of infectious marine diseases have highlighted their ecological, economic and social impacts. These are most conspicuous in the crowded and stressful conditions of aquaculture, which increasingly dominates seafood production. However, the influence of viral pathogens on wild fisheries remains obscure. In this presentation, Dr. Mordecai will describe how molecular tools have provided new insights into viral transmission between cultured and wild salmon, and how this ultimately may impact the overall health of wild Pacific salmon populations in British Columbia. Dr. Gideon Mordecai’s research considers the ecology of viruses, i.e. their interactions with each other, their hosts, and the environment. Despite his prior training as a marine biologist, Gideon investigated the diversity of viruses associated with population declines of honey bees and other pollinators for his PhD. Gideon moved to Canada for a post-doctoral position at the University of British Columbia in 2016, where he discovered 15 new viruses in salmon. He went on to receive a Liber Ero Fellowship, which supports emerging conservation leaders in Canada. His most recent research applies viral genome sequencing to assess the transmission risk posed to wild Pacific salmon by Atlantic salmon aquaculture in BC. He has authored 20 publications as well as served as an expert witness for two Federal Court cases in Canada.

With Dr Natalie Lancer, on Zoom RSVP at https://edst.educ.ubc.ca/oct-12-2021/ Contact: edst.gaa@ubc.ca Academics traditionally don’t speak openly about skills you need to manage yourself, in order to manage your studies. You are the greatest asset of your work. You owe it to yourself to make sure you are in the best possible form when undertaking academic pursuits. In this workshop, we explore the relationships and tensions between self-care, personal development and academic study. This is for you if: You want to bring your whole self to your work but you are feeling a bit depleted and out of control. You want to approach your academic work in the best frame of mind. You value taking a pre-emptive approach to burn out and regularly checking in with yourself and others on your well-being.

As organizations become more diverse and complex, we are increasingly called upon to skillfully handle complicated interpersonal and team dynamics. CoResolve training increases leaders’ capacity to succeed in turbulent times by offering practical tools for working with differences in a group and turning destructive conflict into creative tension. CoResolve is based on the Lewis method of Deep Democracy developed in post-apartheid South Africa and practiced in over 20 countries around the world. Deep Democracy is a psychologically based facilitation methodology particularly useful for working with relationship and group dynamics that are emotionally charged or marked by difference. CoResolve gives you the theoretical background, instructions, experiential learning opportunities, and long-term support that you need to begin using the most powerful and essential tools of Deep Democracy in your leadership.

No matter the citation style they are being asked to engage with, participants will come away from this workshop with a greater understanding of the purpose behind citation, as well as a pragmatic conception of how to apply that understanding in their own academic writing.

UBC Dialogues: What is the cost of care? Unpaid caregivers have long been undervalued and have historically been women. Today, people of all genders fill these roles, yet the majority of caregiving continues to fall on women and is placed on top of their professional responsibilities. There are costs to this work, and they are not borne equally. Whether they are caring for children, elders, or other members of their community, their essential contributions allow societies to function. The experiences of the past 18 months have only exacerbated the challenges faced by both full-time unpaid caregivers and those adding caregiving on top of their regular jobs. The intersectional and socioeconomic pressures on caregivers are clearly not equitable and research shows they are struggling under an unsustainable load that carries physical, mental, and financial ramifications. Join our panel of UBC experts as they discuss the complex reality of care in our society. Who are the caregivers? How has the COVID-19 pandemic impacted them? What would it look like if we were to rebuild the system into one that better supports them? Presented in partnership with the Faculty of Arts, Education, and Medicine, the UBC Sauder School of Business, and The Women’s Health Research Cluster.

Indigenous students are welcome to drop-in to connect with Amy Vozel, Manager of Student Support Services with the Early Alert Program in the Office of the Vice President, Students. Sometimes we face challenges and don’t know where to turn or who to ask for help. Whether it be concerns related to our health, our academics, finances and/or a variety of other realms, life happens and difficulties arise that may stand in the way of being able to thrive as a person, and as a student. It’s OK to ask for help. Through the Early Alert Program, Amy supports student wellbeing by partnering with colleagues and units across campus to connect students with the most appropriate resources and support services to (ideally) allow for earlier support before difficulties become overwhelming. Rest assured, Early Alert is confidential and is not connected to a student’s academic record. Early Alert exists to lend a supportive hand, and to navigate and streamline services to help students get back on track and move forward in their personal and professional goals at UBC. Visit Amy on Wednesdays 2-4 pm at the Wellness Centre, Room 1400 in the Life Building.

To do this, museums and archives need to authentically represent the Indigenous voice in museum and archive spaces. In this series, we intend to intersect with Indigenous knowledge and explore Indigenous recommendations and current Indigenous practice used in museums and archives. This series is supported by a grant from the BC Museums Association, which presents the opportunity to focus on synergies and intersections of museums and archives. Presenters include professionals with expertise and interest in museums and archives. The first two sessions provide shared concepts and stories for exploring these themes, while the third event is more interactive. EVENT GOALS AND OBJECTIVES The goal of these events is to be a starting point of dialogue for museum professionals to ask and consider how to reflect Indigenous experiences, worldviews, culture, interpretations, and inherent ways of knowing more accurately in a museum setting. About Part 1 of this webinar series: This webinar will provide input into what it means to “decolonize museums” from an academic and museum perspective. This panelist session with represent perspective rather than concrete answers. Questions that will be handled are: how do museums portray exclusion? What are steps museums must take to confront a colonial structure and systematic racism? How have museums pondered history of colonial appropriation and cultural restitution?

In this series, we intend to intersect with Indigenous knowledge and explore Indigenous recommendations and current Indigenous practice used in museums and archives. This series is supported by a grant from the BC Museums Association, which presents the opportunity to focus on synergies and intersections of museums and archives. Presenters include professionals with expertise and interest in museums and archives. The first two sessions provide shared concepts and stories for exploring these themes, while the third event is more interactive. EVENT GOALS AND OBJECTIVES The goal of these events is to be a starting point of dialogue for museum professionals to ask and consider how to reflect Indigenous experiences, worldviews, culture, interpretations, and inherent ways of knowing more accurately in a museum setting.

This colloquium will take place over Zoom. RSVP link and details coming soon! FEATURING Dr. Anthony Ong, Professor of Psychology at Cornell University. RSVP Via link TITLE Positive Emotions as Resilience and Vulnerability: Implications for Healthy Aging ABSTRACT Changes in cognitive and physiological functioning pervade the aging process. Importantly, alterations in these processes are not invariant with age, but are influenced by individual differences in resilience and vulnerability that accrue across the lifespan. In this talk, I focus on what is known about positive emotions as a contributing factor in both restorative and deteriorative health processes. Plausible mechanisms that underlie the association between positive emotions and mental and physical health are described, and illustrative studies examining these mechanisms are reviewed. Overall, findings indicate that the effects of positive emotions on health are bivalent in character, exerting both risk-protective and risk-augmenting effects. These findings point to new research questions that pose important challenges for future research. BIO Dr. Anthony Ong holds appointments at Weill Cornell Medical College and at Cornell University, where he is a professor of psychology and director of the Human Health Labs. He received his Ph.D. in developmental psychology from the University of Southern California and completed his postdoctoral training in adult development and aging at the University of Notre Dame. His research and teaching contributions have been recognized with the Springer Early Career Achievement Award in Research on Adult Development and Aging from Division 20 of the American Psychological Association (APA), the Margret M. and Paul B. Baltes Early Career Award in Social and Behavioral Gerontology, and the Merrill Presidential Scholar Award for Teaching. He is the co-editor of Emotion, Aging, and Health and the Oxford Handbook of Methods in Positive Psychology. Dr. Ong is an elected fellow of the Gerontological Society of America, and currently serves on the scientific advisory board of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Network for Emotional Well-Being. His research has been supported by the NIH, John Templeton Foundation, and the RAND/Hartford Foundation. Outside the lab, he enjoys indulging in the lost arts of misen en place, sprezzatura, and vuja de.

The most visible dimension is increased concern about protection of intellectual property, cyber security, and screening of research partnerships and agreements as seen in the recently-announced NSERC guidelines. But the challenges that North American universities face in framing their China connections go much wider, including student recruitment and exchanges in "sensitive fields," the design of exchange and training partnerships, campus atmosphere, and new considerations around academic integrity and freedom. What is the current state of play in universities in the United States and post-election Canada? What are the special challenges facing UBC in particular?

Speaker: Dr. Amanda Vincent, Professor, IOF The world’s quirky and iconic seahorses have quite a tale to tell, about facing enormous conservation challenges and helping inspire solutions that matter globally. <img src="https://fisheries.sites.olt.ubc.ca/files/2019/08/Circle-Amanada-200x200.png" alt="" width="200" height="200" class="alignright size-thumbnail wp-image-13513" />It all started when Amanda wanted to understand how male pregnancy in seahorses informs our understanding of sex differences across animals. That led Amanda to conduct the first underwater studies on seahorses. On discovering that these fishes were being heavily fished and traded, she launched Project Seahorse, a marine conservation organization. Project Seahorse builds knowledge and then translates it into effective action, creatively and collaboratively, at many scales. Amanda and her team pioneered conservation assessments of seahorses, which led them to catalyse the first global export regulations for marine fishes. They have worked in scores of countries to generate 35 protected areas, regulate a range of fisheries and create community science initiatives. All their frontline conservation work is underpinned by rigorous research and conducted in collaboration with national counterparts. Come and hear a story about determination, hope and #OceanOptimism.

UBC Symphony Orchestra Jonathan Girard conductor Mikhail Glinka Overture to Russlan and Ludmilla Ernest Chausson Poème de l’amour et de la mer, Op. 19 Krisztina Szabó mezzo soprano Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 5 in e minor, Op. 64 The UBC Symphony Orchestra presents an animated program of music by Glinka, Chausson and Tchaikovsky, with mezzo-soprano Krisztina Szabó as featured guest. Composed between 1837-42, Mikhail Glinka’s opera Russlan and Lyudmila is based on Alexander Pushkin’s poem of the same name. Although seldom performed as a full-scale opera today, the opera is now fondly remembered for its lively overture. It is full of exciting twists and turns, and infamous for being devilishly difficult for double bassists to play. Ernest Chausson’s Poème de l’amour et de la mer (Poem of Love and the Sea), Op. 19 is a song cycle for voice and orchestra, composed between 1882 and 1892 and dedicated to composer Henri Duparc. The work is based on the poems La Fleur des eaux (The Flower of the Waters) and La Mort de l’amour (The Death of Love) by Chausson’s friend Maurice Bouchor (1855–1929).

Free. Join us for an interactive session about what academic integrity looks like through a teaching and learning lens. In this workshop we move away from outdated “Gotcha!” approaches that seek to punish students after misconduct has occurred and instead look at academic integrity as an everyday practice of ethical decision-making that we enact through teaching, learning and daily decisions. We will also look briefly at the predatory contract cheating industry and what educators need to know to help students protect themselves as they focus on learning ethically. Academic integrity is about more than student conduct; it is the foundation of ethical decision-making in and beyond the classroom. Learning outcomes: By the end of this session engaged participants will be able to: Analyze the role they play in a multi-stakeholder approach to upholding academic integrity. Understand the threat posed by commercial third-party entities. Discover concrete examples of how other universities are addressing complex issues related to academic misconduct. Please note, this session is part of UBC’s Academic Integrity Week taking place October 18 – 22, 2021.

The ISP is the first university Indigenous strategy in North America to commit to implementing the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. Importantly, in alignment with UNDRIP and the TRC, those making the decisions on the Plan’s implementation are predominantly Indigenous. This is the first time at UBC that a cross-campus (Vancouver and Okanagan) and Indigenous-led committee structure has guided what happens at UBC in relation to Indigenous engagement, meaningful reconciliation and decolonization: ‘Nothing about us, without us!” During the event you will hear from a number of Indigenous students, faculty and staff who are helping to make the ISP’s eight goals and 43 actions a reality for the UBC community.

Supposedly orphans, many of these children were taken from their families on the pretense of giving them a better life in Canada. The boys were placed on farms as labourers and the girls in homes as domestic servants. While some were well treated, many were physically and sexually exploited and abused. The history of these Home Children remains largely unknown to the Canadian public, even though more than four million of us are descended from them. This talk will look at their history and their place in Canadian society. See <a href="https://greencollege.ubc.ca/civicrm/event/info%3Fid%3D1233%26reset%3D1">here</a> for more details on this event.

As organizations become more diverse and complex, we are increasingly called upon to skillfully handle complicated interpersonal and team dynamics. CoResolve training increases leaders’ capacity to succeed in turbulent times by offering practical tools for working with differences in a group and turning destructive conflict into creative tension. CoResolve is based on the Lewis method of Deep Democracy developed in post-apartheid South Africa and practiced in over 20 countries around the world. Deep Democracy is a psychologically based facilitation methodology particularly useful for working with relationship and group dynamics that are emotionally charged or marked by difference. CoResolve gives you the theoretical background, instructions, experiential learning opportunities, and long-term support that you need to begin using the most powerful and essential tools of Deep Democracy in your leadership.

As such, this session is not going to delve into “how to teach” with the ideas such as inclusion, equity, and anti-racism. If you already have this knowledge base, this session may not meet your expectations, and we recommend you to consider taking one of the more advanced Anti-Racist Teaching Workshops. If you have the knowledge base and still would like to engage in conversations with other participants, you are more than welcome to join the session. This session is a blend of asynchronous and synchronous components – you must complete the asynchronous module in advance of the workshop. Asynchronous Module (Pre-Work) Canvas Module Link: https://canvas.ubc.ca/courses/73178 The asynchronous module is self-paced, and it is your responsibility to ensure that you complete the module before the synchronous session. We estimate the online module to take most participants approximately 2 hours to complete. The online module was designed to introduce you to some complex issues surrounding the concepts and theoretical frameworks of identities, power, and privilege. You will be presented with self-reflective exercises, informative activities and videos to help you explore and consider how identities, power and privilege intersect with your teaching pedagogy and your personal, professional, and academic lives. Synchronous Session For the synchronous component, participants will meet through Zoom and: - Engage in conversation on concepts introduced in the module; - Share their insights from the online module; - Extend their learning into issues of racism. Our goal for this blended session is to build a strong conceptual foundation that would support participants’ further learning about anti-racism in teaching and learning. Facilitators: - Sue Hampton, Educational Consultant, CTLT - Hanae Tsukada, Educational Strategist, CTLT and Equity & Inclusion Office This event will be hosted online on Zoom.

N/A. Oppression: A Social Determinant of Health We are fortunate to have Dr. Elizabeth McGibbon speaking about a new edition of her book Oppression: A Social Determinant of Health. This session is organized by Program Directors and is open to everyone at SPPH, but is focused on students. For students or others interested in discussing the book, we hope to arrange a separate smaller meeting. Dr McGibbon has kindly permitted us to share Chapter One of the book. If you would like a copy for your personal educational use, please email Marcelo Lince at spph.graduate-programs@ubc.ca . Regarding the talk: Dr. McGibbon will talk about the genesis of the book and touch on some of its high points before opening up for Q & A and discussion on the social, ecological, and structural determinants of health. Biography: Dr. Elizabeth McGibbon, PhD, RN, is a Professor, St. Francis Xavier University. She teaches, researches, and writes about the political economy of health, critical health perspectives, and related complexity science applications in health. Her focus is on how public policy created oppression “gets under the skin” to deepen disadvantage and create intergenerational health damage - while at the same time, enhancing privilege and wealth for some. She published the first Canadian books to address anti-racism specifically in health care practice, along with Dr. Josephine Etowa; and oppression as a social determinant of health (edited volume).

Indigenous students are welcome to drop-in to connect with Amy Vozel, Manager of Student Support Services with the Early Alert Program in the Office of the Vice President, Students. Sometimes we face challenges and don’t know where to turn or who to ask for help. Whether it be concerns related to our health, our academics, finances and/or a variety of other realms, life happens and difficulties arise that may stand in the way of being able to thrive as a person, and as a student. It’s OK to ask for help. Through the Early Alert Program, Amy supports student wellbeing by partnering with colleagues and units across campus to connect students with the most appropriate resources and support services to (ideally) allow for earlier support before difficulties become overwhelming. Rest assured, Early Alert is confidential and is not connected to a student’s academic record. Early Alert exists to lend a supportive hand, and to navigate and streamline services to help students get back on track and move forward in their personal and professional goals at UBC. Visit Amy on Wednesdays 2-4 pm at the Wellness Centre, Room 1400 in the Life Building.

Maybe you want help in the process of teaching your course in online, hybrid or blended modes. Request a virtual one on one course consultation with a Learning Designer to explore ways to enhance your students’ learning experience. This is the opportunity for you to connect with a Learning Designer regarding any questions you have, or feedback you’d like, especially related to teaching your course for online, hybrid or blended delivery. Bring your ideas and questions. Together we will examine them and explore how to enhance the course design and implementation. We can give guidance to incorporate online instructional strategies that support: - identifying key areas in your course where you may need to adjust your practice, expectations, or learning activities for the online, blended or hybrid environment - how you might use both synchronous and asynchronous modes of teaching in your course. - motivating students to engage with their learning (e.g. structuring the course effectively, connecting course objectives to the “real world”) - connecting students to their peers and instructors (e.g. collaborative and interactive activities, peer assessments) - self-regulated learning (e.g. self-assessing readiness for learning, learner autonomy) - evaluating your course design (e.g. aligning assessments with learning objectives, course usability) - accessibility (e.g. ensuring materials can be used by all students) - managing your workload in facilitating student activities and assessments If this time doesn’t fit to your schedule, let us know and we’ll adjust to yours. Go to OTP Course Consultations, complete the form and we will follow up with you. This event will be hosted on Zoom.

In 2018 the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cape Town (UCT) created and funded an Advancing Womxn Initiative designed to build research capacity among Black South African womxn. The Ocean Womxn Fellowship program was developed in response to this call. Despite South Africa being a country with a majority Black population, at the time of the call only 12 out of 73 postgraduate students in the Department of Oceanography at UCT were Black South African womxn, and the academic staff was 100% white. The vision of Ocean Womxn is to be a prestigious research and leadership training program for Black womxn that recruits, retains, and enables the success of the next generation of Black womxn oceanographers. Here, I will present an overview of the program, with an emphasis on key lessons learned thus far. I will also discuss the key barriers to success that were identified – classified as financial, professional, and personal –, as well as the strategies implemented to overcome these barriers. Interestingly, the barriers and their potential solutions are not all unique to the South African context. Instead, many exist across the Ocean Sciences and as such, the lessons learned are broadly applicable to other programs and Universities.

This event will be held virtually this year, with sessions spread across two days: October 21 (interactive panel and e-poster session) and October 22 (dissemination workshop and discussion). This will allow UBC Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) practitioners to share their stories from practice, engage in dialogue around teaching and learning topics, and network with colleagues across disciplines. The event also offers an opportunity for those interested in, or currently engaging with the scholarship of teaching and learning, to become familiar with SoTL work that is currently taking place at UBC. Read about previous Celebrate SoTL events. Date/times: Thursday October 21st: 9:30-11AM; 1:30-3PM; and Friday October 22nd 10-11:30AM and 1-2PM Creative Dissemination of Your SoTL Work: Hands-on Session In this session, we will explore unique venues for sharing SoTL work (e.g., twitter, videos, blog posts, etc). We provide insights on the importance of impactful dissemination of your work. This interactive session will feature examples of creative dissemination and a discussion about the benefits and pitfalls of this approach. This session is intended for those who have conducted a SoTL investigation and are looking to share the outcomes broadly.

With a rare mix of the hyper-personal with the broadly engaging; stylized, but also stripped bare, Kimmortal’s big beats, experimental electronics, and commanding lyrics burst with urgency, power, and presence. A queer, non-binary Filipinx rapper and singer, their parallel work as a visual and theatre artist adds depth to their already compelling interplay of poetics and politics. Kimmortal’s far-ranging alt-rap/soul/electronic album X marks the Swirl incorporates spoken word, rap, and melody-driven passages. It was longlisted for the prestigious Polaris Prize, named one of the “Top 19 Albums of 2019” by the CBC, and nominated for a Western Canadian Music Award. They’ve been blowing up ever since, performing at SXSW, JUNOfest, Rifflandia, NXNE, and headlining the Winnipeg Pride Festival. Expect a killer backing band, live visual art projections, and bold new songs and poems from an incredibly gifted talent. Kimmortal is at the bleeding edge of a powerfully resonant journey through art, that confronts injustice and celebrates community and we’re all the richer for having them as a guide. This event is part of the UBC Artivism Festival 2021: Queering the Self.

In this supportive atmosphere you will have a chance to begin to develop new teaching skills, to enhance existing skills, and/or to try new and challenging ideas. This workshop is being offered in a special ONLINE format to accommodate distance learning and to meet the rapidly changing needs of TAs and graduate student instructors as a result of this shift to online education and will therefore focus on online instruction. Participants do not need to be extraordinarily technology-proficient to be successful in this workshop. An introduction to all technologies used within the workshop will be provided.

N/A. How we’re trying to provide dermatology service for rural and remote communities and measure its effectiveness. How can you bring dermatology to Telegraph Creek and show if it works? Access to dermatology consultation is constrained by any combination of time, distance, and money. Our project has been 10 years in the making and uses a variety of communications technology to provide consultation with doctors and nurse practitioners in rural and remote communities of BC (as defined in the 2019 Physicians Master Agreement) to meet our obligations for access “without financial or other barriers” (as defined by Paragraph 3 of the Canada Health Act). We put together a prototype out of available parts and began providing service and collecting data in May 2020. I will present our results to date and interesting problems including measurement. We think we’re winning but would like to test whether this is true with an audience “versed in the art.” Presenters: Neil Kitson & Nathan Teegee Please contact Pamela Lee (pamela.lee@ubc.ca) for in-person or Zoom details Type - Conference Menstrual Cycle is a Vital Sign.

Date and time: Monday, October 25, 2:00-3:00 pm PDT Location: Virtual (Zoom) Facilitator: Professor Handel Kashope Wright Description: In this virtual session, Prof. Handel Kashope Wright will draw on his extensive experience as editor and editorial board member of several book series and refereed journals to indicate what it takes to (not) get published in academic outlets in general and journals in particular. He will provide an outline of types of publications (from book reviews, through review essays to journal articles to book chapters and books) and the politics of whether and when to undertake them and will make a case for graduate students working regularly toward publication. He will focus particularly on refereed journals and the criteria for acceptance and reasons for non-acceptance of essays for publication. Examples and details about what makes for an essay likely or unlikely to be published in specific journals (and hence the dos and don’ts of writing for publication) will be used to concretize the discussion. Handel Wright is currently serving as Co-Editor of book series (African and Diasporic Cultural Studies, University of Toronto Press); International Editorial Board Member of book series (the University of East London’s Radical Cultural Studies, Rowan & Littlefield; Cardiff University’s Critical Perspectives on Theory, Culture and Politics, Rowan and Littlefield; Critical Childhood and Youth Studies, Lexington Books; Critical Media Literacies and Youth, Sense Publications); Associate Editor of journal Critical Arts; and International journal editorial board member (Cultural Studies; The International Journal of Cultural Studies; The European Journal of Cultural Studies, Postcolonial Directions in Education; Diaspora, Indigenous and Minority Education; Canadian Journal of Education).

As organizations become more diverse and complex, we are increasingly called upon to skillfully handle complicated interpersonal and team dynamics. CoResolve training increases leaders’ capacity to succeed in turbulent times by offering practical tools for working with differences in a group and turning destructive conflict into creative tension. CoResolve is based on the Lewis method of Deep Democracy developed in post-apartheid South Africa and practiced in over 20 countries around the world. Deep Democracy is a psychologically based facilitation methodology particularly useful for working with relationship and group dynamics that are emotionally charged or marked by difference. CoResolve gives you the theoretical background, instructions, experiential learning opportunities, and long-term support that you need to begin using the most powerful and essential tools of Deep Democracy in your leadership.

Quick – tell us the top five things you are good at! Can you do it? Or would it be easier to tell us the things you’re not good at?

In this session, using the Clifton StrengthsFinder assessment (www.gallupstrengthscenter.com), you will learn more about your particular top strengths, how they interact with each other, how they shape your perspective, and how they can be leveraged for success in grad school and beyond. The Top 5 Strengths Assessment is included in this workshop.

ABSTRACT: Background: Numerous, competing interventions are available for any given condition. Network meta-analysis (NMA) has attracted growing interest in evidence-based medicine, since it provides the comparative effectiveness and potential for harm across a network of interventions. In 2015, the PRISMA (Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses for network meta-analysis) reporting guideline was extended for NMA, and comprised 32 items (27 core items for systematic reviews plus 5 items for NMAs). A key reporting item in PRISMA-NMA is consistency between direct and indirect evidence in a network of interventions. The assumption of consistency is fundamental to the validity of the NMA results. Objective: To indicate the impact of PRISMA-NMA in published NMAs, highlight which items require attention and improvement, estimate the prevalence of inconsistency, and describe its association with different NMA characteristics.

Indigenous students are welcome to drop-in to connect with Amy Vozel, Manager of Student Support Services with the Early Alert Program in the Office of the Vice President, Students. Sometimes we face challenges and don’t know where to turn or who to ask for help. Whether it be concerns related to our health, our academics, finances and/or a variety of other realms, life happens and difficulties arise that may stand in the way of being able to thrive as a person, and as a student. It’s OK to ask for help. Through the Early Alert Program, Amy supports student wellbeing by partnering with colleagues and units across campus to connect students with the most appropriate resources and support services to (ideally) allow for earlier support before difficulties become overwhelming. Rest assured, Early Alert is confidential and is not connected to a student’s academic record. Early Alert exists to lend a supportive hand, and to navigate and streamline services to help students get back on track and move forward in their personal and professional goals at UBC. Visit Amy on Wednesdays 2-4 pm at the Wellness Centre, Room 1400 in the Life Building.

To do this, museums and archives need to authentically represent the Indigenous voice in museum and archive spaces. In this series, we intend to intersect with Indigenous knowledge and explore Indigenous recommendations and current Indigenous practice used in museums and archives. This series is supported by a grant from the BC Museums Association, which presents the opportunity to focus on synergies and intersections of museums and archives. Presenters include professionals with expertise and interest in museums and archives. The first two sessions provide shared concepts and stories for exploring these themes, while the third event is more interactive. EVENT GOALS AND OBJECTIVES The goal of these events is to be a starting point of dialogue for museum professionals to ask and consider how to reflect Indigenous experiences, worldviews, culture, interpretations, and inherent ways of knowing more accurately in a museum setting. About this Part 2 of this webinar series: This webinar will examine the ideology of decolonization as a current movement in museums and archives. This webinar will reflect more on the current activities surrounding decolonizing museums and archives today rather than providing concrete answers. I.e. what are some dialogues relating to decolonizing? Ideologies? Professional insight? What have been some of the most important and impactful changes in decolonizing museums to date? How do the panelists position themselves in this topic and any other relative insights they might have?

This presentation will look at a variety of contemporary methods of conducting artful research utilizing digital software and tools. In particular, it will focus on a variety of projects undertaken at the LLED Digital Literacy Centre. These projects include the PhoneMe project, a website and mobile app (available on the App Store and Google Play) which serves as “social media for spoken poetry” with a focus on place-based expression; Singling, a data sonification software which converts text to sound according to user specified parameters for transmediation; The Patch, (a project which was plotted during the 2019 LLED Graduate Research Conference) which employs a variety of states and stages of transformation of textual data oscillating between digital and analogue techniques to collectively analyze and re-present findings; and Digital DIY, a maker space inspired project that incorporates aspects of creative futuring and computational thinking to reconceptualize and resist forms of technological determinism. We will discuss these projects through theoretical lenses that encompass concepts of transmediation, data assemblages, and glitch pedaogogies. In particular, we will be exploring experimental, grounded theoretical approaches to research that look at implications of the automation of language and interagential relationship between humans and algorithmic others in the production of meaning in research contexts. These methods reach across sensorial boundaries and position creativity at the centre of how we gather, process, analyze, and produce findings when working with textual data in language and literacy education.

Workshop Overview: This 4-day workshop (24-hour) consists of teaching practice, theory application, and topical sessions specifically relevant to Teaching Assistants and Graduate Students at UBC. During the workshop you will teach 3 short lessons and receive feedback from your peers. You will work closely with peers and trained facilitators (who are themselves UBC graduate students). In this supportive atmosphere you will have a chance to begin to develop new teaching skills, to enhance existing skills, and/or to try new and challenging ideas. This workshop is being offered in a special ONLINE format to accommodate distance learning and to meet the rapidly changing needs of TAs and graduate student instructors as a result of this shift to online education and will therefore focus on online instruction. Participants do not need to be extraordinarily technology-proficient to be successful in this workshop. An introduction to all technologies used within the workshop will be provided.

Equal parts reverent and celebratory, the spirit of Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) reverberates through the “Mexican-flavoured party starter” (Stir) that is Vancouver’s Locarno. Undeniable grooves have made them festival favourites throughout North America, but like fellow stylistic cross-pollinators Los Lobos, Locarno keeps adding new layers to their traditional roots. Led by Tom Landa on vocals, guitar, and the 8-stringed jarana, the band’s early Afro-Cuban and son jarocho folk-inspired sound has exploded outwards to include influences from African soukous, Mexican marimba music, Venezuelan joropo, Brazilian forró, and a host of bold, idiomatic Latin styles. The Mexican-born Landa has called Canada home since his early teens. Well-known for stomping across stages with acclaimed Celtic/folk/fusion group The Paperboys for over 25 years, in Locarno he beautifully enmeshes the sounds that sparked his imagination as a child with the influences he’s soaked up in a lifetime of artistry. With “great songwriting, a searching musical curiosity, and virtuoso performance skills” (CBC), JUNO Award winner Landa is joined by Kalissa Landa (violin), Robin Layne (marimba, congas, and timbales), Pedro Mota (guitar and vocals), JeanSe LeDoujet (bass), Liam MacDonald (drums, congas, and pandero), Jocelyn Waugh (trumpet), and Nick La Riviere (trombone).
