What’s an alt-textbook?  What are UAS faculty doing? What can I do? How are textbook costs impacting student success?  Interested in getting some answers to these questions and learning a little about open educational resources (OER) and other no or low-cost alternatives to textbooks?  Stop by Egan 115 from noon-1 on Tuesday 3/21 and get some answers.   At this info session we’ll discuss OER as alternatives to traditional textbooks, consider student costs for materials, hear about the big impact UAS faculty are making and discuss strategies for vetting existing resources and efforts to facilitate creation of OER or open-textbooks as an option for scholarly publication.  No experience necessary, come and see how OER can become an additional tool in your teaching toolbox and learn how your selection of course materials can have a big impact on student success.  Okay to bring a lunch to this Open Education Week event.

UAS alumna Dr. Micaela Martinez was recently awarded the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Director’s Early Independence Award of $2M, along with a research position at Princeton University.  Since graduating from UAS in 2009 with a B.S. in Biology and a B.S. in Mathematics, Martinez went on to earn a Ph.D. in 2015 from the University of Michigan Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology. Dr. Martinez is currently a National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow in Biology in the Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology at Princeton University, and a Postdoctoral Affiliate of the Global Health Program in the Woodrow Wilson School of Public & International Affairs. According to the NIH website, she uses “cutting-edge statistical methods and dynamic models to deconstruct epidemics and reveal information about host-to-host transmission of viral infections, immunity in the population, and vaccine efficacy. She works at the intersection of epidemiology, computational biology, chronobiology (i.e., the study of biological rhythms), and ecology. Her traditional training in biology, coupled with research in computational/applied mathematics and statistical inference, has allowed her to develop a unique expertise: leveraging Big Epidemiological Data to unmask population-level biological processes that impact human health.”  Find out more about Dr. Martinez and her research at https://memartinez.org. Lectures are free and open to the public.  All lectures begin at 7p.m. at the Egan Library. All Evening at Egan lectures are simulcast on UATV Cable Channel 11 or live via Flash streaming video.
