Have your resumes ready ahead of time and research the companies. Know who you want to talk to and have a game plan. Study for the Job Fair like you would study for a test. This is your moment to show what you know. Print your own company list by logging into Job Grid http://www.depts.ttu.edu/coe/careers/students/jobgrid.php.

    Effective communication, one of the TTU’s ethical principles, has been a challenging task in academic, professional, and personal life. This TLPDC Ethics Lunch session will focus on the use of acting techniques to strengthen communication skills for faculty, supervisors, and teaching assistants. The presentation provides a special emphasis on nonverbal communication, which is often a key to creating favorable impressions in order to project authority, competence, and a sense of self-confidence. The presenters will focus on a demonstration of acting techniques that are designed to sensitize participants to the communicative possibilities of these nonverbal behaviors and could be applied in various disciplines and settings. Lunch will be provided. This workshop is free and open to all TTU students, faculty, and staff. However, registration is required.

    Please join Assistant Professor Rachel Hirshorn (Voice & Speech, School of Theatre & Dance) in this 90-minute workshop as we explore ways in which the breath moves throughout the body, supporting not only sound production, but also how we experience and perceive our overall energy when in front of a group, and how it is influenced by breath. Rachel is a certified teacher of Fitzmaurice Voicework®, which uses modified yoga postures to release habitual holding patterns in the breath and body. Some of these postures will be introduced during the workshop, so it is essential to wear yoga or gym-style clothing to help facilitate free movement of the body (especially ribs and abdominals - nothing tight or restricting, no skirts or heels). As the workshop is "hands-on", you will also be asked, at times, to make and receive physical contact within a partnered situation, sensing movement and change of breath/phonation patterns with varying external stimuli (e.g. audience, loud sounds, deadlines, etc.).

  • Registration: Not Required
  • Location: TTU Library, Room 150
  • Description: *Attendance fulfills part of the requirement for receiving Graduate School fellowship or travel funding
    With the rise of open access publishing, some publishers now charge author fees as a way to finance the cost of publishing articles without having to charge subscription fees. However, some publishers have begun to take advantage of the author pays model and require payment from authors without providing adequate editorial services. The result is that articles are often solicited and accepted for publication in new journals without the customary peer review and editing that is characteristic of established journals. These predatory journals often have scientific names and list prominent academics on their editorial boards without their permission, making them difficult to distinguish from legitimate journals and publishers. In this workshop, we will analyze the characteristics of predatory journals and outline strategies that scholars can take to identify them and ensure that their research is only submitted to quality journals and reputable publishers.

  • Registration: http://www.depts.ttu.edu/tlpdc/

    The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) uses discovery, reflection, and evidence-based methods to research effective teaching and student learning. While many methodological approaches to SoTL research exist, they often are centered in the classroom environment of the researcher. Inherently, this presents some unique challenges to the ethical guidelines of researching human subjects. This workshop will review key ethical principles of human subject research from the perspective of the IRB reviewer. Specifically, those elements often challenged with SoTL projects will be discussed, along with some creative approaches to design that have been effective in meeting the ethical obligations of researchers.

  • *Attendance fulfills part of the requirement for receiving Graduate School fellowship or travel funding
  • Registration: http://events.tlpd.ttu.edu/View/Member/ShowAllEvents.aspx
  • Location: TTU Library, Room 153
  • Description: During the fall of 2012, I began collaborating with Christine Neugebauer, who directs the Arts in Medicine Program at Covenant Women and Children’s Hospital. Specifically, I helped her to jumpstart a program that would bring undergraduate and graduate student artist volunteers into the hospital to work with patients and their families (creative writing & literature, visual arts, theater, music). I will therefore briefly discuss this experience and the ways in which I have integrated community outreach into my creative nonfiction workshops. I will also focus on the Honors Thesis I directed (Elizabeth Hash, Spring 2016). Building on this foundational interest in and experience with the therapeutic and yes, transformative benefits of the arts, specifically though not exclusively through written creative expression, the heart of my presentation will focus on my experience at the Associated Writing Program’s annual conference, specifically: 1. the information I gathered from a panel of individual artists who work with the following populations: hospitalized children, veterans, and incarcerated teens. 2. my interview with Andre Dubus III (forthcoming in the winter issue of The Missouri Review), whose novel, The House of Sand and Fog, was adapted for film. Dubus’ violent growing up, which led to a tendency towards bullying the bullies—plays into the discussion of the transformative power of art, as art ultimately enabled Dubus to mobilize and direct his energy into writing. I will invite attendees to share their own strategies and experience for enabling student or outside populations via art and/or specific bodies of knowledge.

  • *Learning Online Teaching: Practical Resources and Strategies
  • *Attendance fulfills part of the requirement for receiving Graduate School fellowship or travel funding
  • Location: TLPDC, Room 153, in TTU Library
  • Registration:http://events.tlpd.ttu.edu/View/Member/ShowAllEvents.aspx
  • Description: The Texas Tech Teaching Academy invites you to attend a new series of faculty development workshops led by recipients of the Lawrence Schovanec Teaching Development Scholarship. This scholarship provides funding for recipients to attend teaching and learning oriented conferences and as a part of their fellowship, they agree to return to Texas Tech and present information gleaned from the conference. Based on the issues and strategies learned from the 33rd Annual Distance Teaching & Learning Conference in Madison, WI and two experimental semesters, Dr. Hyojung Cho will share her experiences in learning online teaching. It is hoped that the session will be relevant for instructors who consider a full or partial incorporation of online teaching into their own curriculum. Rather than discussing the philosophical aspects, the session will recommend useful resources and practical strategies. For example, Dr. Cho will discuss useful resources for beginners in online teaching and tools to stay connected with students. Presenter: Hyojung Cho hyojung.cho@ttu.edu
