Calling all Health Sciences Graduate Students
As you work on your programs of study and plans for registering for Spring 2017, please consider Nurs 523 – Educational Issues and Curriculum Analysis. These course is appropriate for all graduate students in the health professions, including, but not limited to those considering an academic career. As health professionals we all have a responsibility to teach – peers, students, clients, the public – and this course examines the issues affecting education and how curriculum respond (or don’t!) to changes in the health environment. This course is appropriate for you if you are teaching or are considering teaching as a part of your career path OR if you have administrative responsibilities to assure competence in work forces. The course is appropriate for both master’s and doctoral programs.
Nurs 523 meets 5 times per term, and is offered only in the spring. Please contact me if you have questions or interest in the course – I would be happy to provide additional information.

Globalization, Diversity, and Education Conference
The conference theme, Living With(in) Borders: Immigration, Indigeneity, and Education, invites researchers from a wide range of disciplines to examine the following questions: How can researchers and practitioners contribute to more nuanced understandings of immigration, indigeneity, and education? How do we teach the historical record and ongoing issues of enslavement, dominance, and forced migration? How can we “speak back to manifest destinies” (Calderon, 2014)? In this conference we will discuss ways we can talk and act productively and sensitively about immigration, indigeneity, and education.
We invite proposals from diverse perspectives that address the conference theme. Such topics may include but are not limited to:
- Student activism and immigrant justice
- Post-colonial and Indigenous perspectives towards decolonizing research
- Land Education and Place-Based Education
- Immigration and language rights
- Tribal sovereignty
- Teaching immigration and indigeneity in K-12 and higher education
- Allies in education and immigrants and indigenous peoples
