For 16 years, he toured his Flying Circus talk throughout the U.S. and Canada, introducing such physics stunts as the bed-of-nails demonstration and the walking-on-hot-coals demonstration to countless physics teachers, who then proceeded to hurt themselves when they repeated the stunts in their own classrooms. These talks led to his PBS television series Kinetic Karnival that was rerun nationally for years and which landed him a local Emmy, now proudly displayed in his first-floor bathroom. Since then, he was on the Canadian radio show Quirks and Quarks weekly for 11 years and on the Discovery Channel Canada show Daily Planet numerous times.

    How to Easily Incorporate Data Analytics into any Accounting Course

    Speaker: Christine Cheng

    When: 03/05/2019 1:00 PM ET

    Event Details

    Description:

    Data Analytics is changing the Accounting Profession, but incorporating data analytics meaningfully into your course doesn’t have to be overwhelming or time consuming.  Whether you are just starting out or an advanced data user,  in this 50-60 minute webinar Dr. Christine Cheng, Assistant Professor at the University of Mississippi, will share her best teaching tips and tricks to help you incorporate data analytics into any accounting course.

    About the Speaker:

    Dr. Christine Cheng, PhD, is an assistant professor of accounting at the Patterson School of Accountancy at the University of Mississippi. Christine earned her PhD in accounting from the Pennsylvania State University in 2011.

    The Patterson School of Accountancy has both a Master of Accountancy and Data Analytics and a Master of Taxation and Data Analytics. As a faculty member, Christine incorporates data analytics in her tax courses both at the undergraduate and graduate levels. In addition, she has been working on developing data analytics cases that could be used by faculty across the country to meaningfully incorporate data analytics into classes throughout the accounting curricula. She has benefitted immensely from not only her experiences in using data analytics, but also the experiences of her colleagues, accounting professionals, and her current and former students. Christine also recently helped review the Wiley data analytics module.

    In this webinar, Christine seeks to bring together these experiences to help share how data analytics can be incorporated in every accounting class. Being a research active faculty, Christine also knows how difficult and overwhelming it may seem to balance what seems like an ever increasing course load with research and service demands. In addition, students need to have time to learn the fundamental course material, while getting the opportunity to use data analytics. Add to that the fact that the data analytics landscape can seem to be ever evolving. Given these conditions, Christine feels that it is important to be strategic in how we incorporate data analytics into our accounting courses and in our accounting programs, and seeks to help participants think about how they might do so in their courses and at their schools.

    Christine’s research on the effect of taxes on individual decision making has also helped her understand the breadth of data that is publicly available for use in data analytics. With a little bit of structure, these data sets can be rich and exciting for students of all areas of accounting to explore. For those interested in learning more about her research, her work has been published in The Journal of Business Finance and Accounting, Issues in Accounting Education, The Journal of Accounting Education, Tax Notes, and Forbes.

    The Psychology of Good and Evil

    Speaker: Catherine Sanderson; Amherst College

    When: 03/05/2019 3:00 PM ET

    Event Details

    Description:

    We are bombarded daily by news reports of bad behavior, from sexual harassment in the workplace to racist attacks on public transportation to bullying in schools. Although it’s easy to blame these acts on evil people, it’s far more complicated to understand why so many people fail to speak up in the presence of such behavior and how significant a role this silence plays in perpetuating the behavior itself. Using empirical research from psychology, biology, neuroscience, and economics, Dr. Catherine Sanderson will examine the factors that lead most of us to stay silent in the face of bad behavior, and how the tendency to stay silent allows such acts to continue.  She describes how to overcome the very natural human tendency to remain bystanders in the face of evil and practical strategies for resisting such pressure in their own lives.

    About the Speaker:

    Catherine A. Sanderson is the Manwell Family Professor of Psychology at Amherst College. She received a bachelor’s degree in psychology with a specialization in health and development from Stanford University, and received both masters and doctoral degrees in psychology from Princeton University. Professor Sanderson’s research examines how personality and social variables influence health-related behaviors such as safer sex and disordered eating, the development of persuasive messages and interventions to prevent unhealthy behavior, and the predictors of relationship satisfaction. This research has received grant funding from the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Health. Professor Sanderson has published over 25 journal articles and book chapters in addition to five college textbooks, a high school health textbook, and a popular press book on parenting. In 2012 she was named one of the country’s top 300 professors by the Princeton Review.

    Today's EdTech: Tuning in, Getting Turned on, and Building Relationships

    Speaker: Laurie Starkey; Cal Poly Pomona

    When: 03/06/2019 3:00 PM ET

    Event Details

    Description:

    Deep, sustained learning requires not only the appropriate pedagogy and a supportive learning environment provided by the instructor, but a serious commitment of time and energy from the student.  With STEM courses in particular, that buy-in may be inhibited by a fixed mindset (“I’m not a math person”) or a lack of sense of belonging (“Everyone around me is so smart – should I even be in college?”).  Interventions that can help address these challenges include development of a learning-centered syllabus, formation of study groups, keeping reflective journals, using exam wrappers, and providing explicit guidance for effective studying strategies.  Technology can also improve success by increasing student engagement, providing 24/7 access to multimedia lessons, and enabling active learning in the classroom.  This webinar will provide an overview of tools that can promote student success, with an emphasis on technology-based approaches including using clickers, making videos, online homework, and using online pre-lab tutorials and quizzes.

    Teaching Personality: Embrace Complexity to Uncomplicate the Task

    Speaker: Dan Cervone; University of Illinois at Chicago & Tracy Caldwell; Dominican University

    When:04/04/2019 1:00 PM EST

    Event Details

    Description:

    Instructors teaching personality psychology face three distinctive pedagogical challenges:

    • (1) Developing students’ ability to think scientifically about a familiar topic, personality;
    • (2) developing their ability to think critically about the classic personality theories of the 20th century; and
    • (3) enlarging their knowledge of contemporary advances in personality science that have occurred in the 21st century.

    Fortunately, accomplishing this trio of goals is easier than it sounds.  One critical concept – personality as a complex system – facilitates all three.  Join Dr. Dan Cervone and Dr. Tracy Caldwell who will present simple teaching strategies and exercises that convey this complex systems view. 

    About the Speaker:

    Daniel Cervone is Professor of Psychology at the University of Illinois at Chicago.  He earned his bachelor’s degree at Oberlin College and his Ph.D. at Stanford, where his graduate advisor was Albert Bandura.  His research addresses issues in personality theory and research; specifically, his Knowledge and Appraisal Personality Architecture (KAPA) model shows how a social-cognitive model of personality can explain individually-distinctive patterns of cross-situational coherence in psychological response.  In UIC’s PhD program, Dan teaches graduate courses in Personality and in Social Cognition.  At the undergraduate level, he teaches Introduction to Psychology and Theories of Personality.

    Flipping the Classroom in Physics

    Speaker: David Young & Shane Stadler; Louisiana State University

    When:11/14/2018 12:00:00 PM ET

    Event Details

    Description:

    Are you already Flipping the Classroom in your introductory physics course? If not, are you interested in learning more? Join Wiley authors Dave Young and Shane Stadler to learn how Flipping the classroom, or “inverted teaching”, allows class time to be spent engaging students with active learning techniques, as opposed to traditional lecturing. Much of the content delivery is now moved outside of the classroom, for example, through pre-lecture videos, readings, and exercises. Class time is then used to engage students with active learning techniques, such as peer instruction, group discussion, demonstrations, group problems, and problem-based learning. Walk away from this webinar with strategies and best practices for flipping your introductory physics course. Whether you are teaching a classroom of 30 students or an auditorium of 300, flipping your classroom can increase your student’s engagement, improve their learning, and make your class more fun!

He then held a post-doc position in the Department of Chemistry and the Princeton Materials Institute at Princeton University before joining the faculty in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Louisiana State University in 2000. His research focuses on the synthesis and characterization of high-quality single crystals of novel electronic and magnetic materials. The goal of his research group is to understand the physics of electrons in materials under extreme conditions, i.e., at temperatures close to absolute zero, in high magnetic fields, and under high pressure. He is the coauthor of over 200 research publications that have appeared in peer-reviewed journals, such as Physical Review B, Physical Review Letters, and Nature.

    Shane Stadler earned a Ph.D. in experimental condensed matter physics from Tulane University in 1998. Afterwards, he accepted a National Research Council Postdoctoral Fellowship with the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, DC, where he conducted research on artificially structured magnetic materials. Three years later, he joined the faculty in the Department of Physics at Southern Illinois University (the home institution of John Cutnell and Ken Johnson, the original authors of this textbook), before joining the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Louisiana State University in 2008. His research group studies novel magnetic materials for applications in the areas of spintronics and magnetic cooling.

    Teaching with Simulation Based Inference to Improve Statistical Thinking

    Speaker: Nathan Tintle; Dordt College

    When:11/19/2018 3:00 PM ET

    Event Details

    Description:

    The statistics education community is increasingly focusing on the use of simulation-based methods, including bootstrapping and permutation tests, to illustrate core concepts of statistical inference within the context of the overall research process. This new focus presents an opportunity to address documented shortcomings in introductory and intermediate level statistics courses (e.g., seeing the big picture; improving statistical thinking over mere knowledge of procedures, critical reading of research studies). Nathan Tintle will discuss (1) the motivation and rationale behind the simulation-based approach, (2) share some concrete examples of how the approach works and can be integrated into existing courses, (3) present research evidence of its effectiveness at impacting students conceptual understanding and attitudes post-course and in the months following the courses completion and, (4) share a wealth of instructional resources available to support instructors trying out and using these approaches.

    About the Speaker:

    Nathan L. Tintle is Associate Professor of Statistics at Dordt College. He has led efforts to develop and institutionalize randomization-based curricula at two institutions (Hope College 2005–2011; Dordt 2011–present), and currently leads the curriculum development project. He has been an invited panelist for a number of statistics education sessions at national meetings, was recently a member of the Executive Committee of the Section of Statistical Education of the ASA, received the 2013 Waller Education Award for teaching and innovation in Introductory Statistics, and was a member of a national advisory committee to the ASA President on training the next generation of statisticians. He has co-authored several articles on student learning using the randomization curriculum, one of which recently won an award for best paper of the year from the Journal of Statistics Education.
