2011. Mercado Santiago, M., Pawley, A. L., Hoegh, J., & Banerjee, D. “Institutional Ethnography as a Method to Understand the Career and Parental Leave Experiences of STEM Faculty Members.” Paper presented at the 118th ASEE Annual Conference & Exposition, June 27. Paper.
I presented a paper and gave a workshop at the 12th Sakyadhita International Conference on Buddhist Women, Bangkok, Thailand. Both works are related to my future dissertation work, my career path, and my NSF Graduate Research Fellowship.
It was a wonderful experience I’ll never forget. I felt that I was like in a big family! Many people (including Buddhist university administrators) were very happy to see that someone was connecting Buddhism with engineering education.
We had a great time at today’s open house, where people’s questions and concerns about our ADVANCE research are invited and answered.
Thanks, team, for doing such a great job with the planning and organization!
Local Purdue colleagues are invited to attend our fall ADVANCE Research Open House on October 19. It will be held from 4-5 in the Elm and Walnut rooms of the West Lafayette Public Library, at 208 W. Columbia St in West Lafayette. Please note there is free public parking across the street from the library, and kids are always welcome both to the library and to our open house. We will have some light refreshments to share.
People are welcome to drop in and chat with ADVANCE Research Team members Dina Banerjee, Jordana Hoegh, Marisol Mercado Santiago, and Alice Pawley, or otherwise comment about our ADVANCE research projects, and will be invited to learn about potentially participating in our research studies, including our Academic Career Pathways study where we listen to people tell us their career stories, or through our Institutional Ethnography studies on Purdue’s parental leave policy or the colleges’ promotion and tenure policies.
In particular, we are interested in discussing alternative possible publication models, where people who contribute their stories to a research study as participants also get research credit for the research. If you are interested in discussing this with us, we particularly hope you’ll drop by.
We hope to see you on October 19!
I just returned from attending the “VII Jornadas Latinoamericanas de Estudios Sociales de la Ciencia y la Tecnología (ESOCITE)” (VII Latin American Conference of Social Studies of Science and Technology). This conference was held in Buenos Aires, Argentina, from July 20 to 23. I presented my paper “Toward an Indigenized Engineering Education: Andean Peasant Technologies as Engineering Education Resources for Andean Peoples.”
