Thursday, September 14, 2017 - 11:45amInvestigating differences in wiki-based collaborative activities between student engagement profiles in computer science education: Presented by Leen-Kiat Soh
During the Fall 2017 semester, the STEM Education Seminar will meet live and in person on Thursdays at 2:00 PM in Bessey Hall, room 109, on the City Campus.
However, upon request, these presentations will also be simultaneously virtually available (i.e., via internet connection) and hosted on the East Campus. If you are interested in attending a virtual session, then you must contact Jenny Dauer (email@example.com) at least a day in advance.
Both sites will have one or members of the DBER Group organizational team who will facilitate the discussion at each site and communication between attendees at both sites.
We hope that the virtual option on the East Campus will help to make these important, timely, and thought-provoking STEM education presentations and discussions more accessible to faculty, staff, postdocs, students, and other interested individuals. We look forward to seeing you at one of the sites!

Monday, September 18, 2017 - 6:00pmWomen's and Gender Studies Colloquium
This film explores four Muslim women’s challenges as they choose to wear…or not wear…a headscarf (the hijab). The story of each woman as she interacts with different members of her family and the community, reveals the diversity of Muslim experiences and viewpoints regarding the hijab. The film conveys how the hijab carries many different meanings and demonstrates the complex effects of the hijab on Muslim women, their families and communities, and raises questions about the present and future of multicultural societies in North America.
A panel discussion will follow the screening of the film. The panel includes professors Loukia Sarroub, Abla Hasan, Claire Nicholas and Ph.D. candidate Samirah Alotaibi.
