Kim Baker, sociology, anthropology and criminology, will share her research on using peer-review in upper-division, discipline-specific courses. With a single peer-review activity, she was able to force students to begin writing earlier in the semester, help students offer formative feedback to their peers and encourage students to substantially revise their drafts before submitting the final paper. Baker will identify research-based best practices for peer review and describe her experiences of conducting research on teaching and learning in the classroom.

Webinar: Your True Colors

Webinar: Your True Colors

Wednesday, February 8, 2017 -

7:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Take advantage of this free webinar offered to you by the University of Northern Iowa Alumni Association.

Catherine Shovlin will focus on career exploration.

We are surrounded by color - yet not everybody realises that our minds and bodies are constantly reacting to it. That means that the colors you wear, the colors you live around and the colors of your logo, business card, website and packaging all matter.
 
In this webinar Catherine, author of "Your True Colors" will draw on 25 years of experience of color psychology to introduce you to to some of the core concepts. You will find out
 
    • what color psychology is and why it matters
    • how it is applied in branding, interior design and personal clothing choices
    • In the process of explaining this, Catherine will also share some specific information such as which color in your study could help you learn better
    • how even blind people respond to color
    • and the use of color as a sales predictor for DVDs
 
If you would rather have color working for you than against you, then this webinar is for you.
