AUGUST 2022

AUGUST 24th, 2022, 11:00 AM - 12:15 PM (US EASTERN TIME). With the availability of faculty jobs varied among academic disciplines and across geographic locations, one does not always have a choice about the jobs to which they apply. Sometimes the strategy is to apply to everything and anything with the hope of getting something, and at other times there are circumstances and priorities that determine one’s job search needs. What we know is that we can often project the strongest candidacy for a position when what we bring, and need are aligned with aspects of the institution, department, position, and location in which we will be working. This presentation will focus on the United States academic job market, but the considerations discussed will be relevant to prospective job applicants in various educational contexts.

In this session, there will be time for small group conversation and reflection. Attend to learn more about:

  • - Factors that can influence alignment
  • - Identifying priorities & resources
  • - Tools and approaches to support learning about classifications and profiles of institutions
  • - Considerations when reviewing different opportunities and various types of institutions

SEPTEMBER 2022

SEPTEMBER 7th, 2022, 10:00 - 11:00 AM (US EASTERN TIME). It has been widely claimed that mainstream IR studies failed to satisfactorily explain, much less predict, the end of the Cold War and the contours of the post-Cold War world now in the process of unforeseen and dramatic changes. Have we again missed something in our assessments? In the GIRS “situation room” you can meet scholars of different cultures, religions, and civilizations exploring how different narratives describe and influence major world crises: you will hear not simply one worldview posing as universal, but different narratives on contemporary global crises (from the Russia-Ukraine war, to the emerging global food, health, and energy crises). PANELISTS: Maria Mälksoo, Shiping Tang, Xiaoming Huang, George Soroka, Thomas Biersteker, Navnita Chadha Behera, Sean Molloy, Siba Grovogui, Jocelyne Cesari, and Vendulka Kubalkova (Panel Moderator).

NOVEMBER 16th, 2022, 11:00 AM - 12:15 PM (US EASTERN TIME). All learners have different needs, skills, talents, interests, backgrounds, and cultures. In this training, participants will learn how to support these differences utilizing the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) as an inclusion strategy. Particular emphasis will be placed on how UDL supports people with disabilities and accommodations, by putting the emphasis on the “disabled” curriculum and how it can be designed to accommodate diverse learners. We will explore the three check points of the UDL learning guidelines through examples of teaching strategies (Engagement, Representation, and Action and Expression) before setting out concrete steps to make a course accessible, such as including captioning for videos and creating accessible documents that can be read by a screen reader. This event will be of interest to teachers in any setting, from a classroom to a hospital or even a football field.
