Dr. Laverne McQuiller-Williams

Join us for a panel discussion on the disparities of race, gender, and ethnicity in scholarly publishing. Speakers will address their work creating and editing journals; collaboratively building training resources tailored to different audiences in the scholarly publishing community; and administering research efforts in a STEM-focused college.

Moderator: Laverne McQuiller-Williams, Interim Dean, College of Liberal Arts 

Panelists:

Jocelyn Dawson, Project Leader, Toolkits for Equity & Journals Marketing Manager, Duke University Press

In support of necessary change, the Toolkits for Equity project leaders are working to create three toolkits to provide resources for allies; for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color; and for organizations. These toolkits provide a common framework for analysis, a shared vocabulary, and best practices to address racial disparities specific to the scholarly publishing community.

Rebecca Sumner, Assistant Dean for Research, College of Engineering Technology, RIT

Seretha D Williams, Professor of English and Women's & Gender Studies, Augusta University & Editor of Third Stone Journal on Afro-Futurism

Third Stone Journal is devoted to Afrofuturism and other modes of the Black Fantastic. It is a starting place for a necessary conversation on literature, art, music, digital content, popular culture, and more that seeks to inject activism by advocating for the removal of obstacles that have habitually stifled and/or silenced people of African descent, their imagination, and things produced as a result.


This event is open to anyone and will be a virtual event held on Zoom. We will share the Zoom link with registrants in the days immediately prior to the event.

Teachers on Teaching: Austin Gehret on the Cognitive Theory of Multimedia Learning

Sponsored by the Innovative Learning Institute

COVID-19 has challenged all educators to become more innovative in their approach to education. The response to this charge has seen a steady increase in both the development of online courses and the remote delivery of course materials. Educational materials designed for these situations, e-materials, are traditionally multimedia instructional resources, defined generally as any online presentation using both pictures and words. We are all doing this in some way but are we also asking ourselves if what we’ve designed will positively impact student learning? The Cognitive Theory of Multimedia Learning (CTML) is a theoretical framework used to inform the development of multimedia instruction that more effectively engages the active processing of the learner. This talk will:

  • Discuss the evidence-based principles of CTML used to design effective multimedia instruction 
  • Discuss the questions that arise in designing CTML-based multimedia instruction for deaf and hard-of-hearing learners

Dr. Austin U. Gehret is an associate professor in the Department of Science & Mathematics, National Technical Institute for the Deaf, recipient of the 2020-2021 Ronald D. Dodge Memorial Faculty grant and 2015-2016 recipient of the NTID Pre-tenure Teaching/Tutoring Award.
