Part I Utilization-Focused Assessment Panel
Utilization-Focused Outcomes Assessment: Making Assessment Meaningful & Useful An inter-institutional panel discussion hosted by the Center for the Study of Languages and Cultures at the University of Notre Dame focused on the Notre Dame Utilization-Focused Assessment Project for Foreign Languages. Brief Remarks by: John Norris, PhD Second Language Studies (University of Hawaii) Peter Pfeifer, PhD German Language & Literature (Georgetown University) Yukiko Watanabe, PhDc Second Language Studies (University of Hawaii) Lance Askildson, PhD Center for the Study of Languages and Cultures (University of Notre Dame) This panel will serve as the catalytic start for the two-year Utilization-Focused Assessment Project in the foreign languages--designed to establish substantive student learning outcomes, improve curricula and develop iterative assessment practices created by faculty from the bottom-up.  This approach to assessment, one which emphasizes faculty involvement, ownership and practical utilization of assessment practices, has been successfully implemented within foreign language programs at peer institutions (including Georgetown and Duke) to great, substantive effect. The present project is therefore being carried out in collaboration with several parallel departments at Georgetown University as well as the University of Hawaii National Foreign Language Resource Center's (NFLRC) Foreign Language Evaluation Program.  Importantly, the present project builds on a seminal utilization-focused assessment project within Romance Languages & Literatures and towards a 2009 grant proposal to the Teagle Foundation.  These important and foundational efforts, led by Ted Cachey and the Romance Languages Assessment Project, have laid the ground work for the present initiative and will continue to provide a model for implementing utilization-focused assessment practices at Notre Dame.

Decolonizing Language Revitalization
September 25, 2013 - How has Eurocentric anthropology and linguistics affected the way we interpret our elders and ancestors who share their cultural knowledge with foreign researchers? Join us for a presentation with Khelsilem Rivers and April Charlo, indigenous peoples from community-based and cultural revitalization backgrounds, who will be discussing decolonization of language revitalization. Their presentation and open dialogue will address the context of rapid language loss and decline, and how colonization has affected or is embedded in the strategies of revitalization. In an effort to revitalize Indigenous languages, communities may have unknowingly adopted or assimilated colonized ways of thinking as they invest interest and attempt to repair or restore ties to culture and language. Are we learning to speak Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, Nēhiyawēwin, Kanien'kéha, et all with an English-mind or are we learning to speak Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, Nēhiyawēwin, Kanien'kéha with a Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, Nēhiyaw, Kanien'keháka mind? Indigenous languages represent one of the darkest ways in which ethnocide and cultural genocide have occurred. It is expected in the next twenty-five years over 700 of the worlds Indigenous languages will be forgotten. In the Vancouver area alone, the two Indigenous languages are considered critical endangered; Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) language has five to seven fluent speakers and hən̓q̓əmin̓əm has one fluent speaker left. Decolonizing Language Revitalization aims to put forward perspectives of shifting values, cultural understandings, and impacts on community. It is the stories we tell ourselves (as a people) that impacts who we believe we are, and then who we become. But if the stories -- even including, or especially the Indigenous ones -- are filtered through colonialism, we have become a different people because of it. April Charlo from Bitterroot Salish people and is a member of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes, Montana. Khelsilem Rivers is a Sḵwx̱wú7mesh-Kwakwa̱ka̱'wakw language revitalization activist from Vancouver.

Learning styles & the importance of critical self-reflection | Tesia Marshik | TEDxUWLaCrosse
The belief in learning styles is so widespread, it is considered to be common sense. Few people ever challenge this belief, which has been deeply ingrained in our educational system. Teachers are routinely told that in order to be effective educators, they must identify & cater to individual students' learning styles; it is estimated that around 90% of students believe that they have a specific learning style but research suggests that learning styles don't actually exist! This presentation focuses on debunking this myth via research findings, explaining how/why the belief in learning styles is problematic, and examining the reasons why the belief persists despite the lack of evidence. Dr. Tesia Marshik is an Assistant Professor of Psychology at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. Her research interests in educational psychology include student motivation, self-regulation, and teacher-student relationships.

Heidi Byrnes, Reconsidering Crosscultural Abilities—The Link to Language Learning and Assessment
Dr. Byrnes speaks at a conference presented by the Center for Educational Resources in Culture, Language and Literacy. Date: Friday, January 27th. Full details below. -------- Dr. Heidi Byrnes presents the keynote address at the 3rd International Conference on the Development and Assessment of Intercultural Competence (ICC 2012) at the Westward Look Resort in Tucson, Arizona. == Abstract == Developing cross-cultural abilities has traditionally been associated with learning a non-native language. At the same time, the language profession has not been entirely successful at making a principled case for how language as a meaning-making system in and of itself is deeply implicated in ways of cultural knowing. By extension, it has also not considered the activity of learning a second language, including learning it in an instructed setting, as developing new forms of cross-cultural knowing. Dr. Byrnes will pursue these issues from three perspectives: First, from the standpoint of language as a semiotic system, she will explore how language is 'naturally' functional, that is, how the resources of a language itself, including its grammar, are meaningful. Second, because learning a second language in educational settings is about learning content, including cultural content, Byrnes will propose that a language-based approach to knowing presents 'critical thinking' as a form of multivoicedness and will argue that such an approach is particularly well suited to an increasingly globalized world. Finally, because educational contexts are inherently charged with assessing students' learning, Byrnes will consider how the construct of multivoicedness, as theorized in systemic functional linguistics, can make cultural knowing in and through and with a second language visible. In that fashion such learning not only becomes amenable to being assessed but also to being appropriately valued in educational contexts.

The evaluation and re-use of Open Educational Resources: a case study
Presented by: Helene Pulker and Anna Calvi, The Open University Filmed at the 8th annual elearning symposium on 24/5th January 2013. The aim of the symposium is to seek to bridge the gap between the 'techie' and the teacher, giving educators ideas to help them integrate elearning into their practice but also to inspire them to see where the online future could lead. The symposium is always well-attended by practitioners from a wide range of disciplines and institutions, and keynote speakers are live-streamed. Following last year's successful event, the two-day symposium comprises a practical mix of workshops on authoring tools and elearning techniques and presentations to inspire the mind with exciting ideas about the possibilities that online learning offers. We offer attendees a range of content from areas of more specific interest to our core LLAS community, to topics of wider interest to educators involved in elearning. We highlight best practice in using elearning and feature an exciting mixture of research and reports from practice to inspire our community. Main themes for the 2013 symposium are: Innovative tools for teaching Digital literacy for staff and students QR codes in teaching iTunesU Augmented reality Innovative grammar teaching MOOCS and language study
Your body language may shape who you are | Amy Cuddy
Body language affects how others see us, but it may also change how we see ourselves. Social psychologist Amy Cuddy argues that "power posing" -- standing in a posture of confidence, even when we don't feel confident -- can boost feelings of confidence, and might have an impact on our chances for success. (Note: Some of the findings presented in this talk have been referenced in an ongoing debate among social scientists about robustness and reproducibility.

Canagarajah's AAAL Lecture for Distinguished Scholarship
Lecture for the Distinguished Scholarship and Service Award of the American Association of Applied Linguistics, March 26, 2018, Chicago. Abstract: "Another Fucking Cancer Diary." Those were the words of British novelist Jenny Diski when she received her cancer diagnosis. The profusion of disability narratives filled her with an "anxiety of influence." This evolving genre has critiqued the ideology of ableism dominant in social and academic discourses. It conveys that all of us are anomalous, and that our capacity to act goes beyond cognitive or individual agency. It has drawn attention to the epistemological value of the body, generative role of social and material networks, and the place of ethics in interactions. In applied linguistics, there is a readiness to acknowledge that one can never be competent or self-reliant for communication in contemporary contexts of unpredictability and diversity. Disability studies helps us redefine language "competence" along embodiment, prosthetic semiotic resources, distributed practice, and ethics. It also informs intersectionality, reframing identity politics towards addressing materiality, relationality, and vulnerability. I illustrate from my ongoing research with international STEM scholars to demonstrate how their communicative success transcends self-acknowledged incompetence in English. I theorize from my personal investment in writing and studying cancer narratives.

Modern C++ Design reloaded - Odin Holmes [ACCU 2017]
Many of the concepts presented in Andrei Alexandrescu’s book "Modern C++ Design" were arguably ahead of their time. Many of the concepts could not be effectively or cleanly expressed due to a lack of language features and the user was often exposed to too much complexity. Now 15 years later we have many more tools. Now Alexandrescu’s as well as similar statically linking yet powerful and generic design patterns are proving invaluable in resource constrained and low latency fields. In this talk I will share my experience creating "post modern" C++ abstractions for bare metal hard realtime systems as well as my work on the tools needed to provide sleek and sexy public interfaces for these libraries such as various improvements to template metaprogramming libraries, lazy evaluation techniques and named parameters. I hope to add idioms and design patterns to any advanced programmers toolbox allowing them to more efficiently and more effectively abstract whatever domain they work in.

Aboriginal Youth & Media Conference at MOA (Part Two)
Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre and hosted by the Museum of Anthropology. "Assert, Defend, Take Space: Aboriginal Youth Conference on Identity, Activism and Film" was a day-long conference on issues of concern to Aboriginal youth. Artists from the Claiming Space: Voices of Urban Aboriginal Youth exhibition were joined by young filmmakers and activists from across Canada. Building off of the screened films, panelists discussed themes of youth identity and politics, the objectification of Indigenous women, and environmentalism and youth activism. "Claiming Space: Voices of Urban Aboriginal Youth"" is an exhibition that looked at the diverse ways urban Aboriginal youth are asserting their identity and affirming their relationship to both urban spaces and ancestral territories. Unfiltered and unapologetic, over 20 young artists from across Canada, the US, and around the world define what it really means to be an urban Aboriginal youth today. In doing so they challenge centuries of stereotyping and assimilation policies.This exhibit will leave visitors with the understanding that today's urban Aboriginal youth are not only acutely aware of the ongoing impacts of colonization, but are also creatively engaging with decolonizing movements through new media, film, fashion, photography, painting, performance, creative writing and traditional art forms. Artists in the exhibition include Alison Bremner (Tlingit), Deanna Bittern (Ojibwe), Jamie Blankenship-Attig (Nlaka’pamux, Secwepemc, Nez Perce, Muskoday Cree), Kelli Clifton (Tsimshian), Jeneen Frei Njootli (Vuntut Gwitchin), Ippiksaut Friesen (Inuit), Clifton Guthrie (Tsimshian), Cody Lecoy (Okanagan/Esquimalt), Arizona Leger (Fijian, Samoan, Tongan, Maori), Danielle Morsette (Stó:lō /Suquamish), Ellena Neel (Kwakwaka'wakw/Ahousaht), Zach Soakai (Tongan, Samoan), Diamond Point (Musqueam), Crystal Smith de Molina (Git’ga’at), Nola Naera (Maori), Kelsey Sparrow (Musqueam/Anishinabe), Cole Speck (Kwakwaka'wakw), Rose Stiffarm ((Siksika Blackfoot, Chippewa Cree, Tsartlip Saanich, Cowichan, A'aninin, Nakoda, French, & Scottish), Taleetha Tait (Wet’suwet’en), Marja Bål Nango (Sámi, Norway), Harry Brown (Kwakwaka'wakw), Anna McKenzie (Opaskwayak Cree, Manitoba), Sarah Yankoo (Austrian, Scottish, Algonquin, Irish and Romanian), Raymond Caplin (Mi’gmac), Emilio Wawatie (Anishanabe) and the Northern Collection (Toombz/Shane Kelsey [Mohawk], and the Curse/Cory Golder [Mi’maq]).

Multilevel Interventions in Health Care Conference: Presentation by Muin Khoury, MD, PhD
Multilevel Interventions in Health Care: Building the Foundation for Future Research Goals Multilevel Research and the Challenges of Implementing Genomic Medicine Lead author: Muin Khoury, MD, PhD (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) Advances in genomics and related fields, promise a new era of personalized medicine in the cancer care continuum. Nevertheless, there are fundamental challenges in integrating genomics into current cancer practice. This paper explores how multilevel research can contribute to evaluation, implementation and dissemination of genomic medicine. The paper synthesizes existing information in a framework of multilevel intervention methodology and makes recommendations for future research on the integration of genomic medicine into the cancer care continuum. Conference Description The research conference sponsored by the National Cancer Institute assembled health care researchers, clinicians, and administrators to discuss the importance of multilevel approaches to improving health care quality in the United States. It occurred over two days and was associated with the American Society for Preventive Oncology's (ASPO) annual meeting in March of 2011. This presentation is one of 13 research papers. The conference offered platforms for participant discussion and engagement regarding the opportunities and challenges of multilevel intervention research.

Industrial invasion in the remote archipelago had gone too far. Ancient cedar giants and rare spruce trees—lifeblood of Haida art and culture—had been leveled indiscriminately for too long. Buoyed by their courageous Haida elders, protesters united in peaceful resistance.

Inside Story Americas - Canada's indigenous movement gains momentum
Subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe Subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe Canada's Idle No More movement began as a small social media campaign - armed with little more than a hashtag and a cause. But it has grown into a large indigenous movement, with protests and ceremonial gatherings held almost daily in many of the country's major cities. The movement is spearheaded by Theresa Spence, the leader of the Attawapiskat, a small native band in northern Ontario. Spence is now 22 days into a hunger strike on Ottawa's Victoria Island just across from the Canadian Parliament. At Al Jazeera English, we focus on people and events that affect people's lives.

Dr. Anton Treuer (03-22-2012) "Historical Trauma"
Keynote speaker Dr. Anton Treuer closes out Inver Hills Community College's Student/Faculty Conference. This year's theme was Flourishing in a World of Disasters. In this talk Dr. Treuer discusses some of the disasters visited upon American Indians, as well as how the effects of those disasters continue to linger even today. What makes this talk so powerful is that it does not simply attempt to lay blame, rather, Dr. Treuer offers possible solutions for growth and the possibility of authentic global flourishing. (NOTE: the camera needed reset every 30 minutes, which is why there are three "two second" breaks. NO content was lost in those, and the battery died right as Dr. Treuer cited Chris Rock and how racist does one have to be to turn down a day off of work just because it celebrates a black person. The talk ended right after that, so nothing of import was lost.) Thank you to all that helped make this happen!

Multilevel Interventions in Health Care Conference: Presentation by Jeff Alexander, PhD
Multilevel Interventions in Health Care: Building the Foundation for Future Research Goals Time Issues in Multi-level Interventions for Cancer Treatment and Prevention Lead author: Jeff Alexander, PhD (University of Michigan) This paper will explore how time (and timing) introduces important complexities in the design of multilevel interventions and in modeling behavior and expected results of such interventions. The paper will address: a) time as a level embedded within individual patients; b) temporal aspects of intervention implementation, fidelity, and sustainability; c) analytic techniques for incorporating time in models of multilevel interventions, and d) costs and benefits of incorporating time in evaluations of multilevel interventions. Conference Description The research conference sponsored by the National Cancer Institute assembled health care researchers, clinicians, and administrators to discuss the importance of multilevel approaches to improving health care quality in the United States. It occurred over two days and was associated with the American Society for Preventive Oncology's (ASPO) annual meeting in March of 2011. This presentation is one of 13 research papers. The conference offered platforms for participant discussion and engagement regarding the opportunities and challenges of multilevel intervention research. Recorded sessions, presentation slides, and additional resources are available at http://cancercontrol.cancer.gov/mli/index.htm

WATER Conference Session 3
WATER: Wetted Land: the Assessment, Techniques and Economics of Restoration Footage from the third session at a conference on 27th June 2012 in Exeter, UK on Payment for Ecosystem Services and catchment management. The WATER project is an EU Interreg funded project. The second session included the following presentations: Identifying PES opportunities By Martin Ross (SWW Environmental Manager) Assessing the prospect for trade By Nick Paling (WRT GIS and Data Analyst) Creating a legal delivery framework By Laurie Smith (University of London - Lecturer) Background to the Conference: Payments for Ecosystem Services are an increasingly topical mechanism for investing in the restoration of river catchments. The WATER project was set up to investigate the role of wetted land within a catchment and identifying the assessment, techniques and economics of restoration. This conference set out the two main objectives of the project; firstly, a catchment portal that identifies the different brokers working across our rivers; and secondly, a series of guides aimed at setting up PES projects. The Upstream Thinking project (a payment for ecosystem services initiative) is linked with the WATER project and the programme covered how the scheme originated, how the benefits and costs were assessed and how the technical issues developed. This was followed by a review of the work achieved to date and the monitoring systems put in place to measure the impacts as well as a review of the future of the scheme in light of the Natural Environment White Paper.
