On the Ceiling Exhibition Viewing

On the Ceiling is an exhibition of student work created as a visual response project, inspired by the novel Au Plafond (On the Ceiling) by Éric Chevillard. The images will be on display throughout Innovation Forum week from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m., in North Creek Events Center (NCEC).

Students, faculty, staff and the community are invited to visit. All are also invited to meet the artists and learn more about the project at a presentation on Tuesday, February 14, 1:30-3 p.m., also in NCEC

About the project:

In the novel, one of the distinguishing features of the main character is that he wears a chair upside-down on his head -- both an absurdist gesture and a creative horizon from which the story itself unfolds.

For the project, students were challenged to take a picture of someone wearing a chair, incorporating the spirit of engagement into the process. The intent was to initiate dialogue among participants – as a space for whimsical speculation and creative rethinking of performance and representation.

TIC Talk Series: Building Great Teams

Building Great Teams features brief research presentations, followed by a panel discussion on organizations, teams and collaborative technologies. Presentations include:

  1. Analyzing Team Structures and Processes Now to Build Better Teams Tomorrow by Professor Deanna Kennedy
    What are the characteristics of an ideal project team? How does the ideal project team collaborate? How does an ideal project team communicate? By finding out the answer to these questions today we can build (and train) for better teams tomorrow.
    Herein the ideal project team is identified using computational studies of laboratory, simulation, and field team data. Using such methods as Monte Carlo simulation, particle swarm optimization and genetic algorithms, the composition, collaboration, and communication of ideal teams are studied. The implications for building the ideal team are discussed.
  2. Collaborative Technologies’ Role in Teamwork by Professor Tayfun Keskin
    Collaborative information technologies are integrated sets of information processing functions designed to facilitate knowledge sharing and integration among interconnected entities.
    Today, most organizations have access to some type of collaborative technology, such as messengers, e-mail, an online calendar, and sometimes a file sharing system despite unending debates on the effect of information technologies. So do really collaborative technologies enhance performance? If so, which functionalities help better performance? And under which conditions? Because we know sometimes IT does not matter. My aim is to develop a quantitative "role of information systems" theory to find answers to these questions.
  3. Greatness by Professor David Socha
    We all want greatness. How do we get greatness? By producing great results. How do we produce great results? By being part of a great team. The opportunities for producing greatness, the need for producing greatness, and our understandings of how to produce greatness have changed dramatically over the last few decades. How can we at UW Bothell, intentionally and effectively help to dramatically increase the amount of greatness done in this, our one world?

About TIC Talks:

Priorities in Global Health

Priorities in Global Health, moderated by Chris Wade, is a panel discussion exploring innovative approaches to global health issues. A panel from UW Seattle and UW Bothell discuss the impact of global health issues, assess current ideology, research, and practices that encumber progress, and present ideas for interventions, actions, and practices to make a positive impact.

Initial presentations will include:

1. Onyinye Edeh: Adolescent/Youth Health.
Adolescence is a critical developmental period with long-term implications for the health and well-being individuals. Health promotion for adolescents is not assumed to be a priority but it is critical because it enables youth to increase control over their health through informed decision making. Health promotion moves beyond a focus on individual behavior towards a wide range of social and environmental interventions.
2. Johanna Crane: Ethnographic Study on Global Health Education and Partnerships
Is Global Health being compromised by Academia and elsewhere due to its popularity? It is a priority to understand the dynamics of partnerships in terms of power, ethics, and equality.
3. James Pfeiffer: It is a priority to build health systems that provide basic services. Looking at NGOs: NGOs receive funding but do not develop sustainable programs and due to limited scope, NGOs are antithetical to systemic change. It is a priority to understand what steps lead to apposite engagement and strengthening health systems.
4. Clarence Spigner: A Critical Eye on GH
Is the current structure (Education, Research, & Funding) contributing to the problems in Global Health? What are the costs of having a restricted view of Global Health? Is Global Health the new Colonialism? It is a priority to evaluate the actors on the stage of Global Health.
5. Chris Wade: Defining Global Health
Identifying a working defination for "global health." (program moderator)

Presentations will be followed by discussion, facilitated by Carolyn Brennan and Andrea Kovalesky.

Light refreshments and beverages will be provided. Sponsored by the UW Bothell Alumni Council.

Exploring Creativity through Games

We speak about “playing games” in our day-to-day lives, whether we refer to actual games or whether we refer metaphorically to a mode of conduct. However, who do we mean when we say, “she” is winning or “he” likes playing games? When does the game become the “player?”

In this presentation we will engage two philosophers from different time periods, namely Immanuel Kant and Hans-Georg Gadamer, to address this question.

TIC Talk Series: Increasing Engagement and Learning in STEM Education

Increasing Engagement and Learning in STEM Education features brief research presentations, followed by a panel discussion about innovative teaching methods to foster student success in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) areas. Presentations include:

  1. Science Teaching for Diverse Learners by Professor Carrie Tzou
    With increasing pressures in classrooms for teachers to cover more and more content, there is decreasing time to tailor science teaching to the needs of diverse learners. Science in particular is often thought to be "culture-free" or culturally neutral, but we know that students draw on their cultural, familial, and everyday resources to learn science. In this talk, Tzou will present an approach to teaching science and environmental science that draws on youths' everyday practices, family resources, and community knowledge.
  2. Game-themed Introductory Programming Project by Professor Kelvin Sung
    The recent developments in computer gaming classes and gaming-themed curricula are exciting and have demonstrated resounding successes in attracting and retaining students in the Computer Science discipline. However, for faculty members with no computer gaming or graphics background the outlook of adopting or developing games-related courseware materials may seem daunting.
    This presentation describes the on-going results from the Game-Themed Introductory Programming Project where the project's ultimate goal is to empower such faculty members with game-themed teaching materials as part of their general teaching tools.
  3. Interactive Visualizations to Enhance Student Learning by Professor Robin Angotti
    Recent advancements in motion sensing technology are opening new possibilities for interactive visualizations to enhance student learning in K-12 education. New computer software which uses these new technologies allows mathematics students to physically use their bodies to produce and manipulate graphs of functions. This type of “embodied thinking” may assist students who have difficulty learning abstract math concepts.
    This presentation demonstrates software recently developed by a team of students at UW Bothell and its potential applications for mathematics teachers.

TIC Talk Series: Innovative Approaches to Geographic Information Science

Innovative Approaches to Geographic Information Science (GISc) features brief research presentations, followed by a panel discussion on the emerging field of Geographic Information Science (GISc).

  1. Presentation by Professor Jin-Kyu Jung
    Once erroneously assumed to be limited to ‘quantitative’ and ‘positivistic’ data processes, many recent approaches and practices in Geographic Information Science (GISci) are more ‘fluid’ ways of researching ‘about’ as well as ‘with’ (e.g. critical GIS, PGIS, Qualitative GIS). For example, within the emerging field of qualitative GIS, In his research, Jung has explored how forms of qualitative evidence and analyses might be integrated with GIS, to produce stronger insights that if they were engaged separately. He has suggested that the integration between qualitative research and GIS would complement a longstanding focus in GISci with ways of handling qualitative forms of spatial data and reasoning in the digital environment.
    We live in a new era where virtually everyone with access to advanced technology such as GPS, Smartphone, and web-based GIS (e.g. geoweb, neogeography, Volunteered Geographic Information, GIS & Social Network) has unprecedented ‘power’ and ‘familiarity’ with the spatial data. Spatial data and digital mapping are not just for the geographers, cartographers, or GIS Scientists, but many non-geographers, in fact, many citizens enjoy creating, using, and sharing spatial data more than ever before. By presenting these innovative new developments and practices in GISci as well as Geographic Visualization, I will discuss how these new ways of using and visualizing spatially-integrated data influence our understanding and production of space we live, work, and play, and how they compare to our perception of those spaces (e.g. visualized urban space vs. perception of urban space).
  2. Presentation by Professor Santiago Lopez
    Geographic Information Science (GISc) is the foundation of Geographic Information Systems (GIS). It is the general term for mapping technologies used in applied research, education, business, and government. GISc integrates spatial data sets in the form of digital maps, digital aerial photos, remotely sensed imagery, and global satellite navigation systems.
    In this presentation Lopez explains how GISc can help to answer questions related to the human and physical dimensions of global change. Specifically, he discusses how GISc and field-based approaches can help us to understand and spatially visualize changes in physical and anthropogenic systems in the tropical Andes.

On the Ceiling Exhibition Viewing

On the Ceiling is an exhibition of student work created as a visual response project, inspired by the novel Au Plafond (On the Ceiling) by Éric Chevillard. The images will be on display throughout Innovation Forum week from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m., in North Creek Events Center (NCEC).

Students, faculty, staff and the community are invited to visit. All are also invited to meet the artists and learn more about the project at a presentation on Tuesday, February 14, 1:30-3 p.m., also in NCEC

About the project:

In the novel, one of the distinguishing features of the main character is that he wears a chair upside-down on his head -- both an absurdist gesture and a creative horizon from which the story itself unfolds.

For the project, students were challenged to take a picture of someone wearing a chair, incorporating the spirit of engagement into the process. The intent was to initiate dialogue among participants – as a space for whimsical speculation and creative rethinking of performance and representation.

Closing Summit with Distinguished Guests: Reinventing the University

The Closing Summit of the Innovation Forum features is a blue-sky exercise with a panel of notable industry and academic leaders grappling with the issue of creating a "new university," in the context of the today's world. The panel is moderated by UW President Michael K. Young and the lead panelist is Professor J. Rogers Hollingsworth of the University of Wisconsin.

Increasingly, it has been shown that the best universities in the United States are private and expensive. This trend is unsustainable and harmful to the long-term interests of American society. Professor Hollingsworth will the set the stage with a historical look at what has made the most successful and innovative universities thrive. He will reflect on his 1996 analysis of the UW, as well as his research findings.

Panelists will then be led through a Q&A exercise where they will focus on what an institution might look like if it was created in today’s climate, with today’s technology, to serve the needs of today's students.

  • Doors open at 6:00 p.m
