Structured Pairing in an Electronics Laboratory

Environment Events - 7 hours 59 min ago
Friday, May 25, 2018 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Dr. Michael Loui, professor of engineering education from Purdue University, will present two unrelated projects.

First, in an electronics laboratory for first-year engineering students, Loui and his group conducted a quasi-experimental, mixed-methods study of an adaptation of pair programming, called structured pairing. To compare lab sections that used structured pairing with lab sections that used traditional groups, they administered a survey and conducted focus group interviews to obtain data on student confidence, satisfaction, and retention. (Joint work with Nicholas Fila.)

Second, in a grounded theory study, Loui's group analyzed the reflective journals and mentoring philosophy statements of eighteen graduate student mentors of undergraduate researchers in a summer research program. They developed a model of research mentoring that describes how the mentoring relationship can evolve and explains how mismatched expectations can arise. (Joint work with Renata Revelo.)

A lightly catered lunch will be provided. Kindly RSVP: http://oregonstate.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_9FwkVLlXDVGp0Md

Twilight Tour: Green Acres Forest Clackamas Woodland Farmer of the Year Nominee

Forestry Events - 16 hours 25 min ago
Thursday, June 28, 2018 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Mark your calendar for a twilight tour the first week of summer. See how a couple from the city got a head start on learning to manage their woodland near Estacada. Les and Susan Ricketts adopted a two- storied forest of widely scattered timber with a well-established understory of nine-year old trees. They will share their experience with the challenges of managing the daylight and growing space, under and over the two-storied stand as the young trees start getting crowded.

The Ricketts are a successful example of intergenerational land stewardship outside the family as they take on forest stewardship with guidance from the previous owner. Their forest was established by Lee Holland, an active member of the Clackamas woodland owner community, who was eager to pass on his knowledge of the woods he managed. Les and Susan plan to keep it as forest to provide all the benefits–air, water, wildlife, mushrooms, and timber: someday involving their children and grandchildren in forest stewardship for the next generation.

Registration is required but there is no fee.
