Student Networking Workshop


Date: Monday July 29, 2019

Time: 8:00 am – 4:00 pm

Location: Colorado State University – Durrell Center (first floor)

Purpose: The UWIN External Evaluator, Shirley Vincent, and Student Success Task Force has designed an engaging opportunity for UWIN students to network and learn more about each other.  This full-day workshop will utilize the EMBeRS process to facilitate research sharing and exploration of connections and collaboration opportunities. The workshop is open to any UWIN student interested in participating.  On-campus accommodations are available free of charge to encourage participation.

Workshop Leaders:

  • Dr. Deana Pennington, Associate Professor of Geological Sciences, University of Texas at El Paso
  • Dr. Shirley Vincent, Principal, Vincent Evaluation Consulting, LLC
  • Dr. Kate Thompson, Assistant Professor of Learning Sciences, Griffith University
  • Yoga Korgaonkar, UWIN PhD student, University of Arizona

Participant Preparation: Each participant will prepare one slide using a template, showing their institutional affiliation, UWIN affiliations, and research interests. The slide must be available to the workshop leader and all participants at least one week in advance of the workshop. Participants will be pre-assigned groups of three, initially mixing projects and institutions within thrusts, then mixing disciplines across thrusts. Assignments will be made several days in advance so that participants can review the slide about their group members.
