UK London Info International introduces second annual Conference Programme - 04 Aug 2017

London Info International (LII) has announced its second annual Conference Programme. LII 2017 has announced a diverse set of speakers to discuss and debate the most important and pertinent topics affecting the information industry.

LII 2017 programme focuses on the changes affecting industries globally: uncertainty, Brexit, AI, cyber security and fake news - a few issues that the speakers will debate. It is increasingly difficult to rely on traditional social and political reference points.

LII will also cover the rise to prominence in the workplace of millennials and Generation C tribes, the latest developments in the Open movement, and how the tools and techniques adopted by customer experience experts in online teams can be applied to the world of professional information. In addition, LII will hear from a new generation of start-ups that are challenging the status quo within the industry.

LII takes place at the Business Design Centre on December 5 - 6, 2017.

UK SAGE and Campaign for Social Science partner to launch pipeline project - 04 Aug 2017

Academic publisher SAGE Publishing and the Campaign for Social Science have partnered to launch a new research project looking at pathways into different social science disciplines at university and employment prospects for social science graduates.

As a result of the data revolution there is a growing need for more social scientists with number and data skills, along with existing social science analytical expertise. The report will look at the importance of equipping researchers with these skills to ensure that the social sciences continue to respond to the evolving needs of society, expanding on the recently published Smith Review.

The report aims is to help students, schools, and universities make informed decisions about discipline choices, while contributing to debates around how higher education institutions can play a more active part in identifying need and supplying necessary skills.

The social sciences have been instrumental in understanding and tackling many of society's most pressing challenges. Since SAGE's founding over 50 years ago, the company has striven to champion the value of social science research to policymakers and wider society, working together with partner organisations in pursuit of this aim. The new project is the latest in a series of collaborative efforts between SAGE and the Campaign, following The Business of People report in 2015 and The Health of People report in 2017.

The latest project builds on SAGE's 2016 whitepaper Who is Doing Computational Social Science: Trends in Big Data Research whitepaper, which addressed the challenges researchers face in doing big data research, as well as the Campaign's influential 2013 report What do Social Science Graduates do?, which looked at the range of skills acquired by social science graduates and how this translated into successful employment prospects in the public, private and third sectors.

The report, published by SAGE, is due to be launched in early 2018.

US California University of Pennsylvania partners with American Meteorological Society to bolster science education - 04 Aug 2017

California University of Pennsylvania has partnered with the American Meteorological Society to provide graduate level credits tuition-free to K-12 teachers who take AMS Earth sciences education courses.

Chad Kauffman, a professor in Cal U's Department of Earth Sciences, has been named curriculum development coordinator and lead for the AMS DataStreme program, which engages educators nationwide in studying the planet's weather, oceans and climate.

Teachers who complete the courses become science leaders in their own schools and communities, educating their teaching colleagues and ultimately reaching millions of students nationwide.

In the fall and spring semesters, California University of Pennsylvania will offer three-credit DataStreme Atmosphere, Ocean, and Earth's Climate System courses through its online learning management system - the same system that supports the university's nationally recognised Cal U Global Online degree programs.

Cal U's online learning system allows participants to access course content, view presentations, and interact with instructors, mentors and classmates. Teams of regionally based educators and scientists mentor teachers enrolled in DataStreme courses.

Three-credit workshop-oriented courses meet in summer: The Maury Project, based at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory in Annapolis, Maryland; Project Atmosphere, held at the National Weather Service Training Center in Kansas City, Missouri; and AMS Education courses and workshops may be taken individually, in any order. Teachers who complete nine credits earn a post-baccalaureate certificate from California University of Pennsylvania's School of Graduate Studies and Research.
