Invitation: FIS Host Program Summer Informational Meetings

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

You’re invited to learn more about the Friends of International Students (FIS) Host Program
at one of our upcoming information meetings.
Dear Faculty and Staff–
International Student & Scholar Services invites you to learn more about our Friends of International Students host program.
• The program provides a terrific opportunity for you to meet people from around the world, and to connect with a student in an individual way.
• It’s a friendship program. Contacts between student and family are arranged on your own terms.
• To date, the Class of 2019 will include more than 70 international students, including some U.S. students who live abroad.
• In September, we also will welcome over 12 international exchange students.
• Most of the students participate in our program, so we will need many new hosts.
We will offer several information sessions throughout the summer.
If you are interested in exploring the possibility of serving as a host to an international student, please register to attend one of our information meetings in the Service Building, Second Floor, Room 200.

• Wednesday, July 15, 12:15-1:00 p.m.
• Wednesday, August 12, 12:15-1:00 p.m.
• Thursday, August 20, 5:15-6:00 p.m.

Please feel free to bring your lunch to our afternoon meetings.
We hope you will be able to join us. However, if you cannot attend a session and are interested in the program, please let us know.
TO REGISTER: Please contact Carolyn Dahm, ISSS Administrative Coordinator, by email at isss@middlebury.edu or by telephone at 443-5858. (Your email reply will go directly to the ISSS office mailbox. In either your email or phone message, please provide your name, email address, and phone number.) Even if you have been a host in the past, please contact us to register for a meeting, both to share your experiences with potential hosts and to learn about the upcoming year of the FIS program!
Please share this information with friends and family who do not work at the College.
We invite all who are interested in learning more about the program to attend a meeting.

Jeff Howarth awarded National Science Foundation IUSE grant

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Jeff Howarth (Geography) and a colleague at University of California-Santa Barbara have been awarded a grant from the National Science Foundation’s IUSE program (Improvement in Undergraduate STEM Education) for an interdisciplinary project titled Multimedia Learning Principles for Design-it Yourself Online Instruction of GIS Concepts. The theoretical goal of the project is to evaluate the generalizability of multimedia learning theory to the domain of solving spatial problems with computer-based geographic information systems. The practical goal of the project is to provide STEM educators with evidence-based guidance for presenting instruction online that can help them develop blended learning environments as an alternative to traditional lecture and lab classrooms. At least three undergraduate students will be involved with this project.

Little Daily Insight: you WILL get hurt

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

The simple truth is that If you are a closed-off, fearful, unapproachable, reserved person, you will get hurt a few times in life. And even if you are the most open, brave, honest and loving person, you will still get hurt a few times in Life. So, as it seems, the fact that you’ll get hurt a number of times in your life is a given. But you can still choose what kind of a person to be.

This is something Stephen Kiernan told me recently that really stayed with me and that I turn to in moments of pain. I believe it has a soothing power.
I think it brings a great relief to just accept that getting hurt is a part of the game. It is not by default a punishment. You may get hurt and not have wronged in any way (think “collateral damage” or politics, being at the wrong place at the wrong time).
I’m now working on erasing the thought process that claims “I am a good person, so this shouldn’t be happening to me”. I am who I am because it’s impossible for me not to.
