2012 Critical Thinking Symposium

May 7-8, 2012
Register »   | Organizer: Kate Thedwall

Please accept our invitation to the 2nd Annual IUPUI Gateway to Graduation Critical Thinking Symposium.  We are thrilled that Gerald Nosich, Ph.D., nationally known critical thinking expert, will be returning to IUPUI.  He is the author of Reasons and Arguments(Wadsworth, 1982). His second book, Learning to Think Things Through: A Guide to Critical Thinking Across the Curriculum, has recently been released in its fourth edition (Pearson, 2011).  This book has been used extensively with high schools, community colleges and at colleges and universities globally.

Over 100 IUPUI faculty spent two days with Dr. Nosich in May, 2011.  His presentation was transformative to faculty who attended.  Since his visit, two faculty communities of practice have formed, many faculty have created interdisciplinary assignments in their Themed Learning Communities and Gateway (first-year) classes. Because his impact was so powerful, we are establishing this Critical Thinking symposium as a regional event with invitations going to all of the surrounding states.  Faculty from colleges, universities, high schools, professional units and business will be in attendance.  Please join us for this very important work. 

The two day event is free for IUPUI and IUPU Columbus faculty and these faculty may be eligible for a professional development stipend.

The registration fee for participants not employed by IUPUI or IUPU Columbus is $225. The registration fee includes a continental breakfast, lunch and snack for the two days. The fee for this two day symposium is minimal in relation to the impact it will have on teaching at your school/ and your students’ learning outcomes.

Nanotechnology Discovery Summer Camp for High School Students

June 11-15, 2012 or June 25-29, 2012
Register »   | Organizer: Center for Research and Learning

The IUPUI Nanotechnology Discovery Academy (INDA) Summer Camp is a week-long day camp (June 11-15, 2012 or June 25-29, 2012) that provides a unique opportunity for high-school students entering their sophomore, junior, and senior years to explore the interdisciplinary field of nanotechnology on the IUPUI campus. Nanotechnology concerns the control of matter in the nanometer scale: one nanometer is one billionth of a meter, or 100,000 times smaller than the diameter of a human hair. This cutting-edge field is becoming an essential part of science, engineering, medicine, and many other disciplines. The camp fee ($295) covers all camp materials and supplies, and includes daily lunch and the cost of one IUPUI course credit. Need-based scholarships may be available; housing and transportation unavailable. APPLICATION DEADLINE: MAY 7, 2012

Participating high-school students will work with world-renowned faculty mentors to:
- Discover innovative technologies
- Gain hands-on laboratory experience
- Engage in research and learning activities
- Earn one college-credit hour

Project-Based Learning Institute

June 25-28, 2012
Register and for more information»   | Sponsors: IUPUI, University of Indianapolis and Wayne Township School District

The annual Project-Based Learning Institute prepares educators for implementing PBL by immersing them in an authentic PBL environment. Over the course of four days, educators from across the state work together in small content-area groups to develop a project for their classroom. The Institute offers programming for novice, intermediate, and advanced PBL practitioners and administrators in grades K through 16.

The PBL Institute models project-based learning for teachers just as it should be implemented with students. At the outset of the event, participants receive an entry document and learn the vocabulary of PBL. Educators have the opportunity to see and critique successful projects. In small groups, facilitators guide participants through the PBL process as they create projects for their classrooms. Throughout the event, participants can choose to attend workshops and mini-lessons to increase their PBL skills. Workshops cover topics like differentiation, technology, and integrating state academic standards. Media specialists staff the library to provide additional support through research and idea generation. At the conclusion of the event, participants present their projects to other educators to gain authentic feedback.
