I, Too, Am UNI is a photo essay project that will depict the stories of students from under-represented groups who experience micro-aggressions on a regular basis at UNI. The inspiration for this event is the I, Too, Am Harvard project, which specifically focused on racial micro-aggressions. Students will have the opportunity to write their story or phrases on a dry erase board and will be photographed holding it. These photos will then be on display on the I, Too, Am UNI Tumblr and Facebook fan page.

Graduate College Brown Bag Lecture: "Complexity as a Catalyst for Flow and Creativity in the Early Family Lives of Highly Creative People"

Graduate College Brown Bag Lecture: "Complexity as a Catalyst for Flow and Creativity in the Early Family Lives of Highly Creative People"

Monday, April 14, 2014 - 12:00 pm

Gary Gute, director, Creative Life Research Center and associate professor, School of Applied Human Sciences, and Deanne Gute, associate director, Creative Life Research Center, will present "Complexity as a Catalyst for Flow and Creativity in the Early Family Lives of Highly Creative People." Bring your lunch; cookies will be provided. Forty years of creativity literature has identified complexity and flow as central to the lives of creative persons. However, research has not sufficiently explored the influence of complexity within the family in shaping adult creativity. This presentation reports the results of a study (Gute, Gute, Nakamura, & Csikszentmihalyi) that explored complexity in the early family lives of nine creative exemplars who have made significant contributions to contemporary culture.

Rubrics: Advantages and Disadvantages of Using Rubrics for Grading (And Other Things)

Monday, April 14, 2014 - 3:30 pm to 4:30 pm

It seems as though people either love rubrics or hate them. Some appreciate the time that rubrics can save; others find them too restrictive and generic. This session, led by Catherine Miller, mathematics, and Susan Hill, CETL,  will explore the advantages and disadvantages of using rubrics for grading, which rubric is best for a task or project, examine a variety of different kinds of rubrics and discuss when using rubrics can be most beneficial to you and your students.

Earth Science Seminar: Muddied Waters--Examining Iowa's Policies and Practices

Earth Science Seminar: Muddied Waters--Examining Iowa's Policies and Practices

Monday, April 14, 2014 - 4:00 pm

Jorgen Rose, political science major, will discuss Iowa's public policies and water pollution.  

Abstract: Clean, usable fresh water is a precious and valuable resource, but it is one that we often mistreat and misuse. In particular, surface water is extremely vulnerable to human actions and influences; nowhere is this more apparent than in agricultural states like Iowa, where nonpoint-source pollution (runoff) has a dramatic effect on our rivers, lakes, and streams. However, despite this continuing decline in the quality of Iowa’s water, there exists very little public policy aimed at dealing with the problems of nutrient contamination and other forms of nonpoint-source pollution. Furthermore, what policy does exist is either ineffective or insufficient. The goal of this research was to attempt to discern why this gap in Iowa’s public policy exists. By examining current and historical factors associated with policymaking in Iowa, it was possible to gain a detailed understanding of why such a lack of effective and sufficient policy exists today. Operating on the assumption that in order to fix a problem it is first necessary to accurately comprehend what is wrong, this research identified two broad “primary culprits” behind the lack of effective policy in Iowa: economics and culture. And although much research has been done into various facets of this topic before, a holistic, wide-angle view of the problem both proved most appropriate for accurately assessing the problem and more effective at providing for policy implications that might have otherwise been missed.
