Concordia Faculty Seminar with Mark Looker and Michael Kalmes
27 Degrees of Separation: Social Network Analysis and Literary Texts

Wednesday April 10, 4:00 – 5:00 in Krieger 107

Our project adapts UCINET, a software program for doing advanced social network research, to explore what it might reveal or highlight about the relationships of characters in novels through the lenses of such categories as family, race, gender, social status, and geographical location. The resulting data, once entered into UCINET and pushed through a related program called NETDRAW, provides a unique way to sort out, compare, and visualize social relationships of various kinds in fairly dramatic fashion. 

As we began to see the range of possibilities in adapting UCINET to the analysis of literary texts, it struck us that a) the modifications that we had made to the software might be used with any kind of text, and b) a simplified version of the process could be adapted for use in the classroom as an additional pedagogical tool. In fact, just the process of creating the Excel files—asking students which attributes (e.g., gender, age, race, centrality, and the like) are important to a novel and why, which relationships in a novel are most intense and why, etc., before entering them into an Excel sheet—can stimulate classroom discussion and debate (as borne out by trial runs in two courses during spring 2018 and spring 2019). One of the things we’ve noticed is that such analysis can make readers more sensitive to various kinds of diversity, encouraging them to think about texts in a way that reveals hitherto unlooked for patterns and trends and raises unexpected questions. Given the importance of visual learning in today’s educational environment, the resulting ability to visualize the generated data and make hypotheses about a novel based on that could be a powerful pedagogical tool in middle and secondary English classrooms as well as university-level (with the bonus that a basic version of UCINET is available for free).

Concordia Faculty Seminars are informal interactive presentations and conversations on faculty projects including grants, research, and service designed to promote scholarship, spark new ideas, provide opportunities for meaningful discussion, and increase collaboration.

CELT Programs at CUW – Spring 2019

CELT Spring Book Group

Reach Everyone, Teach Everyone: Universal Design for Learning in Higher Education
Led by Janis Chapman (ARC Director) and Susan Gallanis (CELT)

Meets on the following Mondays, 2 – 3 in R006: February 18 & 25, March 11 & 25, April 15 & 29
Register by Wednesday, February 6 to receive the book.

This book group is open to faculty and staff.
Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is often associated with students with disabilities. Thomas J. Tobin and Kirsten T. Behling (the authors) show that UDL can be profitably broadened toward a larger ease-of-use and general diversity framework. Captioned instructional videos, for example, benefit learners with hearing impairments but also the student who worries about waking her young children at night or those studying on a noisy team bus.

Reach Everyone, Teach Everyone is aimed at faculty members, faculty-service staff, disability support providers, student-service staff and campus leaders who want to strengthen the engagement, interaction, and performance of all college students. It includes resources for readers who want to become UDL experts and advocates: real-world case studies, active-learning techniques, UDL coaching skills, micro- and macro-level UDL-adoption guidance, and use-them-now resources.

Concordia Faculty Seminar: Student Use of Quantum Mechanical Models

Thursday February 7, 12:15 – 1:00 pm in the Lakeshore Room
Presented by Dr. Jordan Beck

Brought to you by the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP). Free lunch from the cafeteria included for the first 20 people who register in advance for this event.

This program is for faculty, staff and students. Quantum mechanical models are abstract and require navigation of a variety of cognitively taxing representations. Published research about how students use quantum mechanical models at the upper-division level is sparse. This work aims to fill this gap in the literature and begin the process of characterizing learning of quantum chemistry in upper-division courses. The major findings are that upper-division students’ knowledge is significantly fragmented with a retention of determinism and reluctance to apply mathematical formulae. Students, unlike experts, focus on surface features. The data indicates two specific surface features: lexical features and a “complex equals better” heuristic.

Concordia Faculty Seminars are informal interactive presentations and conversations on faculty projects including grants, research, and service designed to promote scholarship, spark new ideas, provide opportunities for meaningful discussion, and increase collaboration.

This Magna Online Seminar will be held in a Q&A format.
