You can either visit Guidebook on the web or the Sponsored Projects Administration website to get the schedule online, or download the Guidebook app to have access to the complete schedule on the go!
Research Week 2016 offerings include:
SPA Primer Series – Workshops and presentations about the nuts and bolts of doing research at Ball State University. Topics range from funding searches and grantsmanship 101 to making the most of reviewercomments and compliance issues.
Spotlight Events – Just want the highlights? Spotlight Events may be just what you’re looking for. These events will appeal to the broadest range of the campus audience. Anyone, no matter the discipline or level of involvement in research, will find these events of interest. Spotlight events include a keynote speech by Jennifer Blackmer, Associate Provost for Entrepreneurial Learning and Associate Professor of Theatre, and a Teach-a-Thon featuring Ted Talk style presentations from Ball State faculty members.
Guest Speaker Sessions – Many of this year’s sessions feature speakers from outside of Sponsored Projects Administration. They will be discussing the Fulbright experience, introducing the new College of Health, helping us to understand the export control process, and presenting on many other interesting topics.
Daily Panel Discussions– Join us every day at 2pm in Bracken Library 104 for a panel discussion. See Research Week schedule for topics.
NSF Fall Grants Conference – We will be live-streaming both days of the National Science Foundation fall grants conference on Monday, November 14 and Tuesday, November 15. Viewing locations will be the SPA Conference Room and the Schwartz Learning Pod (Bracken Library, 1st floor). Check here for conferenceschedule.
The goal of this study is to investigate the relationships among a variety of attitudes and how they influence one another.
Participants must be 18 years of age or older to take the survey. Participation is completely voluntary and all responses will be kept anonymous (i.e., we will not ask for any identifiable information so no one will know how you responded). This survey will take approximately 60 minutes to complete – you can skip items or quit at any time. The survey will contain questions regarding demographics, and various attitudes about femininity and masculinity. Your responses to the survey would be very useful and greatly appreciated.
