Employing Middlebury Students this Summer

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

You may be thinking about employing a Middlebury College student to work in your department this summer. What a great opportunity for both you and the student! The student can learn important skills (or enhance those they already have) that they will use throughout their life – customer service, time management, conflict resolution, verbal and written communication skills, and so on.

The Student Employment Office Web page has been updated to reflect this summer’s procedures and policies http://www.middlebury.edu/offices/business/seo/summer.

Please familiarize yourself with these policies so you are well informed and can provide information to the student(s) you hire.

 

Academic Roundtable, March 10, 2015 – Managing Technology in the Classroom

Categories: Midd Blogosphere
The Academic Roundtable meets on Tuesdays in the lounge of the CTLR from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m.
As the number and type of devices students bring to class has proliferated, faculty have had to wrestle with how to manage this new reality of students showing up with phones, tablets, and laptops. In addition, students are impacted by their fellow students. In this session, we’ll hear from faculty who are wrestling with this challenge, as well as from students whose views represent a range of positions.

Faculty discussing their classroom technology policies and practices will include:
Alison Stanger, Political Science
Helen Young, Biology
Student panelists include:
Phil Bohlman ’17
Cate Costley ’15
David Ollin Pesqueira ’17
William Weightman ’17

Fac/Staff Lunchtime Soccer

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

We (Peter Kim, Mike Roy, Peter Matthews) are trying to organize regular noon-time pick-up soccer for faculty and staff (like the decades old basketball games in Pepin) in the new Virtue Fieldhouse. At this point, we plan to reserve the Fieldhouse on (at least) Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at noon. (We’ve already enjoyed a couple of 3 v 3 scrimmages!) Peter (Kim) has more than enough soccer balls, pinnies, connies and PUGG goals to accommodate simultaneous games if needed.

If you’re interested, please e-mail Peter Kim (ptkim@middlebury.edy), Mike Roy (mdroy@middlebury.edu) or Peter Matthews (pmatthew@middlebury.edu) with the subject heading “Fac/Staff Lunchtime Soccer” and let us know what days work best for you, and whether you’d like to be added to a regular e-mail distribution list.

Progress or Posturing? Examining the Progress of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Dear Members of the Middlebury Community:

The Rohatyn Center for Global Affairs (RCGA) would like to invite you to our 3rd Annual International and Interdisciplinary Conference from Thursday, March 12, through Saturday, March 14. This year’s title is Progress or Posturing? Examining the Progress of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals; it will critically examine the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which were designed to significantly reduce global poverty and disease by 2015, thereby improving the lives of the world’s poorest. The eight goals were proclaimed and ratified in September 2000, and later by all of the 189 states then in existence and by 23 international organizations. It is time to evaluate the successes/failures of the MDGs.

Progress or Posturing? will be organized around five major themes: health, education, environment, gender, and global partnership; it will bring a diverse line up of speakers and events to campus. You can find out more at the conference website: go/mdgs.

 The conference will be sponsored by the Departments of Economics, Geography, History, Political Science, and Spanish and Portuguese; the Programs in Education Studies, Environmental Studies, and Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies; Brainerd and Wonnacott Commons; Environmental Affairs; the Center for Social Entrepreneurship; the Middlebury C.V. Starr Schools Abroad; and the Rohatyn Center for Global Affairs.
