Critical Issues in Mathematics Education 2018: Access to mathematics by opening doors for students currently excluded from mathematics
21 Feb 2018 - 23 Feb 2018 • Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States
Our mathematics education system is inequitable. It operates in ways that leave a significant proportion of students with negative mathematics experiences and inadequate mathematical preparation. The problem is historical and systemic, and the students most disaffected by systems of oppression are overwhelmingly Black and Latino, Indigenous, poor, women, immigrant or first generation college students. If our mathematics community is to sustainably grow and thrive, mathematics education at all levels must be transformed. This workshop focuses on students for whom we do not yet successfully ensure access to and advancement in mathematics. Sessions will provide innovative research and programmatic efforts that welcome those students and their diverse intellectual resources and lived experiences, keep them engaged and interested in mathematics, and mentor them on new educational and professional opportunities. The focus is on reproducible efforts at various scales in k-12, undergraduate and graduate education that can improve our understanding of meaningful experiences in mathematics that disrupt systemic oppression and strengthens intellectual, socio-emotional, and professional well-being of students historically marginalized in STEM.

This week-long workshop is for late-stage graduate students and early-stage postdocs in number theory to learn and develop strategies for giving clear, motivated, and informative talks. While some of the workshop will focus on basic skills like good boardwork and eye contact, the majority of the workshop will be focused on how to effectively convey mathematical ideas to people outside of one's particular specialty in number theory. There will be multiple small breakout sessions where faculty mentors (including the organizers) will give feedback on talks and discuss concrete strategies for preparing and giving talks.

Physics Education Research Conference 2018
01 Aug 2018 - 02 Aug 2018 • Washington, DC, United States
Many physics instructors have educational goals for their students that go beyond understanding physics concepts and problem-solving approaches. These goals can include understanding how physics knowledge is generated, understanding how to learn difficult concepts, learning more general problem-solving skills, developing confidence in physics/science, and developing a physics identity. Our conference theme is inspired by an educational goal articulated by Eleanor Duckworth, a goal connected to the ones just mentioned but different in flavor: "The having of wonderful ideas is what I consider the essence of intellectual development. And I consider it the essence of pedagogy to give [students] the occasion to have [their] wonderful ideas and to let [them] feel good about [themselves] for having them."

FEIS — International Symposium on the Future of Education in Information Science
10 Sep 2018 - 11 Sep 2018 • Pisa, Italy
Differences in entry requirements and learning outcomes in the field of Information Science (IS) cause large mobility barriers and lack of uniformity among Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) that offer Master degrees in IS. The Erasmus+ EINFOSE project seeks to find out the appropriate ways and modes of the harmonization and recognition of the entry requirements which would enable students from other fields to master learning outcomes at the graduate level of IS programs. The International Symposium on the Future of Education in Information Sciences (FEIS 2018) is intended to stimulate discussion and reach commonly accepted recommendations that could serve not only to partner HEIs but also as a model for other academic disciplines.
