Choosing the Right Sources: Identifying Bias and Fallacies

It can be hard to know how to evaluate information sources, whether they be academic articles or that news article your friends share on Facebook. There are a few things you can do to evaluate these documents to see if they are more or less trustworthy. It is important to remember that everything has a bias and identifying that bias will help you conduct more effective research and make better arguments. Together we will examine examples of fallacies and how to avoid being tricked by them.

CSE Software Carpentry--Instructor Training

Over the last hundred years, researchers have discovered an enormous amount about how people learn and how best to teach them. Unfortunately, much of that knowledge has not yet been translated into common classroom practice, while many myths about education have proven remarkably persistent. This two-day class will introduce participants to a handful of key research findings and show how they can be used to help people learn better and faster. We will look at the cognitive differences between novices, competent practitioners, and experts; why those differences require different pedagogical approaches; how to design formative assessments to provide feedback to both instructors and students while learning is taking place; how to mitigate cognitive load during learning; how concept maps can be used both to design lessons and to communicate those designs; how practices similar to pair programming and test-driven design can be used in education; and how teaching is a performance art. We have a limited number of seats, so priority decisions may have to be made (for instance, if multiple people from the same organization apply). Please apply by Wednesday, April 25, so that we can notify everyone in time of their application status. Software Carpentryhas run variations on this course since 2012 for over 500 people, and the present material is relevant to anyone trying to teach basic programming skills to adults. The class will be hands-on: short lessons will alternate with individual and group practical exercises, including practice teaching sessions. Those who complete the two full days andsome short follow-up exercises onlinewill be certified to teachSoftware CarpentryandData Carpentryworkshops.

CSE Software Carpentry--MATLAB, Automation (Bash and Make), Data Management (Git)

What basic computing skills do I need as a researcher? How do I maintain my research code? How can I quickly and automatically process my experimental data? This two-day workshop will cover the skills you need to succeed as all fields become data-driven:Scriptingfor task and data managementProgrammingwith theMATLABscripting languageDataManagement andVersion controlwith GitAutomationwith Makeand more . . .This two-day workshop is an example-driven tutorial on basic computing skills, hosted by theNational Center for Supercomputing Applicationsat the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Short tutorials alternate with hands-on practical exercises, and participants are encouraged both to help one another, and to try applying what they have learned to their own research problems during and between sessions.Participants should bring their own laptops to work on--if you require one on loan, please let us know ahead of time and we'll see if we can help locate one. Everyone is welcome, and this will be especially useful to graduate students, postdocs, and researchers who have not begun to leverage the power of scripting and version control for reproducible research. We especially encourage members of a course or research group to sign up together to reinforce good habits. Ask your advisor (if you are a research assistant) about development funds from research grants.
