#Gradscicomm

  1. Following #gradscicomm? Summer 2014 #ComSciCon at @Harvard – free & offering travel reimbursement, accommodations  http://bit.ly/LSw5X4 
  2. On this V-day I will be livetweeting from the #gradscicomm and #climate sessions. But first, coffee. #AAASmtg pic.twitter.com/J4O66PFMdL
  3. Building National Capacity in Science Communication for STEM Graduate Students #AAASmtg #gradscicomm pic.twitter.com/onYLzE2mno
  4. Starting now! Follow #gradscicomm for our #AAASmtg session on integrating #scicomm training into STEM education  http://bit.ly/1jeyIy8 
  5. Starting off today with #gradscicomm session at #AAASmtg. Seeing a lot of familiar faces
  6. .@brookesimler:Over the next 3 hours, we will figure out why, what, and how of #gradscicomm (w/audience participation) #AAASmtg
  7. To follow more conversations about graduate science communication training, there’s the #GradSciComm hashtag. #AAASmtg
  8. First up:Gerald Blazey of NIU on the modernization of graduate education. Why? What is being done? #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  9. Our PI Jamie Bell is a discussant at #AAASmtg session on integrating #scicomm training into #STEM education. Follow now at #gradscicomm.
  10. Joining #gradscicomm #aaasmtg sees after navigating the winding hallways btw hotels. An analogy for getting to grad STEM #scicomm training?
  11. First up: Gerald Blazey. 50,000 doctorates a year, over half not in academia. #aaasmtg #gradscicomm
  12. Jerry blazer from the White House tells us how invested we need to be in grad ed for a better work force. #gradscicomm #AAASmtg
  13. Blazey: PhDs are not aligned w societal needs, and too narrowly focused on discipline instead of professional scope #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  14. NIH funds more grad students than any other. NSF is a close second. Fed govt has huge role. #gradscicomm #nsf
  15. .Blazey: recommendations incl. partnerships w private sector, internships/traineeships, more interdisc. education #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  16. Sorry #gradscicomm but I might not use that hashtag with all #AAASmtg tweets. Too many characters! 🙂
  17. Studies show Low PhD completion rates and in general students lack professional, transferable skills #gradscicomm #aaasmtg
  18. Blazey: fed funding for science and tech is not centralized, but fed policy and coordination are–at @whitehouseostp #aaasmtg #gradscicomm
  19. Blazey: @whitehouseostp provides synthesis of sci/tech policy. Funding is distributed, in the FedGov, but policy isn’t #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  20. Does US need Ministry of Science? Hard 4 @whitehouseostp 2 coordinate #STEM policy w/o centralized funding capability #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  21. COMPASS #gradscicomm show underway. Why and how of communications training for grad school. Stellar lineup. #AAASmtg #scicomm @DecodeSci
  22. Blazey breaking down the @whitehouseostp‘s units and scope; super helpful, but hard to tweet #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  23. Blazey: “The strongest signal is that we need to broaden the skills in grad education.” #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  24. Jerry Blazey really shows us how committed the White House is to Grad Ed. #gradscicomm #scicomm #AAASmtg
  25. Blazey:”grad education is not well aligned with the breadth of America’s workforce.” from @whitehouseostp prob. statem.#AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  26. Blazey: the @whitehouseostp formed an informal Graduate Ed. Modernization working group to identify & address gaps #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  27. @whitehouseostp has great passion and vision. It gets mired in the politics on the Hill. #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  28. If you are a grad student in the sciences, you need to be following #gradscicomm this morning! From #AAASmtg
  29. Fed govt IS focusing on grad ed reform (“modernization”). #gradscicomm #AAASmtg
  30. Blazey: the COMPETES act required @whitehouseostp‘s NSTC to create a 5-hr plan for modernizing STEM ed at all levels #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  31. To recap: Studies led to discovery of problem, interface b/t @whitehouseostp & stakeholders led to working group #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  32. Blazey: federal agencies starting to focus on #GradSciComm and graduate education. #AAASmtg
  33. Blazey: la formation des étudiants gradués pas assez axée sur besoins sociaux #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  34. .@goldmane: no org, individual, or institution can meet the need for reforming grad STEM ed wrt #scicomm, alone. #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  35. .@goldmane: What is the landscape of #gradscicomm? We see a fuzzy, diverse patchwork. #AAASmtg
  36. .@COMPASSonline tried to get a handle of the #scicomm resources for grad student, but it is hard and fuzzy .#gradscicomm #AAASmtg
  37. Blazer: les étudiants gradués reçoivent une grande partie de leurs subventions du gvt, celui-ci a un rôle important à jouer #gradscicomm
  38. .@goldmane: The network for #scicomm training is NOT robust. A lot of reinventing the wheel. #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  39. .@goldmane refers to network analysis of the #gradscicomm practice community: we are fragmented & fragile #AAASmtg
  40. .@goldmane explains how #scicomm resources (and people) are not well connected – we need a more robust network. #aaasmtg #gradscicomm
  41. #gradscicomm @goldmane asks if we need a #scicomm community of practice. Today’s session is a great first step to build that
  42. @goldmane: What needs to change about #gradscicomm education? Best practices, capacity, student motivation, and advisor support. #AAASmtg
  43. #gradscicomm dissemination is static, science communication needs to move toward dialogue
  44. to get more #scicomm in grad ed: need advisors support, need resources, better pedagogy. #gradscicomm #AAASmtg
  45. We need to define what a core competency is in #scicomm to move #gradscicomm forward, from @goldmane #AAASmtg
  46. Our #gradscicomm session at #AAASmtg is underway. Bookmark our latest blogpost – handy background, resources & links:  http://compassblogs.org/blog/2014/01/08/gradscicommreportback/ 
  47. .@goldmane: #gradscicomm is refining core competencies for #scicomm in graduate STEM ed, incl. listening, distilling complexity #AAASmtg
  48. Sad to be missing #gradscicomm at #AAASmtg but happy to be boarding an actual airplane
  49. Les agences fédérales commencent à mettre l’emphase sur la #gradscicomm et les étudiants gradués #AAASmtg
  50. .@goldmane: How do we identify competencies, and then how do we track impact wrt proficiencies? #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  51. MT @RockyRohde Key compet. #GradSciComm: listening, dialogue, building trust, distilling complex topics, audience consid., storytelling.
  52. #gradscicomm For me, defining core competencies in #scicomm = most difficult & fascinating. Theory & practice Crosslinks to #scioscicomm
  53. .@goldmane shares all kinds of approaches to #scicomm training for grad ed. “bottom up” and “top down” both great and needed #gradscicomm
  54. .@goldmane: #gradscicomm is internal & external; change is coming from top-down & bottom-up (e.g. @UW_CoEnv‘s @LisaGraumlich) #AAASmtg
  55. .@goldmane: for #gradscicomm to happen, internal & external support as well as top-down & bottom-up initiatives. #AAASmtg
  56. @goldmane: #gradscicomm efforts seen on two levels. Institutional level (within universities) and external (national programs) #AAASmtg
  57. #gradscicomm training should be tailored to students’ individual career goals. #AAASmtg
  58. #gradscicomm For example: some wonderful storytellers might not be competent science communicators… Tricky to pick it all apart
  59. What should be the #gradscicomm competency for grad students? Who should be involved? At @COMPASSonline session #AAASmtg
  60. when should grad stem students receive #scicomm training? first year? later? posed by @goldmane at #gradscicomm #AAASmtg
  61. Want to learn more about #GradSciComm? Make sure to follow @COMPASSonline & check out their blog for handy resources:  http://compassblogs.org/ 
  62. .@goldmane: Change requires motivation (incl. champions, pressure), alignment w goals & needs, and funding #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  63. .@LizNeeley #gradscicomm there is also the tug-of-war between narrative accuracy vs. accessibility.
  64. I’m so honored to be volunteering at the AAAS Annual Meeting and meeting pioneers in science and technology policy! #AAASmtg #GradSciComm
  65. roadblocks to #gradscicomm? lack of support from advisors. monitoring and evaluation – how are we doing? #AAASmtg
  66. #gradscicomm #AAASmtg For now, we believe #scicomm training needs “all of the above”: institnl leadership, grassroots, courses, ext wkshps
  67. .@goldmane: Many roadblocks for #gradscicomm training now,e.g. advisor support, evaluation, $$$. “Funding is a pathway, not an obstacle.”
  68. is money a roadblock to #gradscicomm asks @goldmane .no, it is a pathway! let’s be clear on what it needs… #AAASmtg
  69. .@goldmane: major #gradscicomm roadblocks include lack of advisor support, monitoring/eval, and funding. #AAASmtg
  70. #scicomm should be appreciated in day to day academic life – then will see change – @goldmane #GradSciComm #AAASmtg
  71. .@goldmane: Fed govt., agencies want to see what specific investments they can make to effect #gradscicomm #AAASmtg
  72. Half of Grads work outside of their STEM degree. Comm training & more needed for brining sci to govt, policy, public. #gradscicomm #aaasmtg
  73. Next, Bruce Lewenstein/Cornell, on defining core competencies for #scicomm for STEM grads  http://bit.ly/M099W9  #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  74. .@blew1000 has a historical perspective on #scicomm. Talking about core competencies. #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  75. .@COMPASSonline #gradscicomm includes accessibility for ALL. Your blog not a good example. One pager as an image?  http://compassblogs.org/gradscicomm/

  77. MT @JenEDavison: .@goldmane: for #gradscicomm to happen, internal & external support as well as top-down & bottom-up initiatives. #AAASmtg
  78. .@blew1000: Practitioners need knowledge of context, self-reflection of personal benefit, and finally, skills. #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  79. #SciComm is not a linear process. A lot messier (image of a “net”) – Bruec Lewenstein #GradSciComm #AAASmtg
  80. .@blew1000: We did a study w/informal review, learning theory, and personal experiences. #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  81. Compétences clés pour #gradscicomm : écoute, dialogue, bâtir confiance, distiller sujets complexes, raconter des histoires #AAASmtg
  82. .@blew1000: Re: e.g. climate change, etc. to divorce the issues is to miss the point. Context is important. #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  83. We *know* this, but so easy to forget MT @TheresaLiao: #SciComm not a linear process. A lot messier – Lewenstein #GradSciComm #AAASmtg
  84. Grad students need a better sense of the context (re: public & social aspects) – Bruce Lewenstein #GradSciComm #AAASmtg
  85. .@blew1000: we have reliable knowledge abt how #scicomm works (i.e. #scioscicomm). We need to refer to it. #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  86. .@blew1000: 75-80% of scientists have interacted w/media, and 75-80% would do it again. #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  87. audience chuckle at @blew1000‘s cartoon, 1 scientist to another “one thing i’ll say, we never stooped to popularizing science” #gradscicomm
  88. Note: Studies were done by Dunwoody over the past 30 years, not @blew1000. #gradscicomm
  89. .@blew1000: “Science isn’t just what you do in the lab.[science] is embedded in social discussions.” #gradscicomm #AAASmtg
  90. .@blew1000 shares #scicomm skills: content, organization, clarity, style, dialogue. #gradscicomm #AAASmtg
  91. Les efforts en #gradscicomm doivent être faits à deux niv. : Institutionnel (à l’intérieur des univ.) et a l’externe (programmes nationaux)
  92. .@blew1000: Re skills — on a slightly more advanced level, learn how to use humor and narrative #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  93. .@blew1000: skills for #gradscicomm: content, organization, clarity, style, &-importantly-dialogue. You need to be able to listen #AAASmtg
  94. “We never stooped to popular science” – not true. There is a direct benefit to appearing in the media – Lewenstein #GradSciComm #AAASmtg
  95. yes! “know your audience is the first, middle and last thing i teach” from @blew1000 at #gradscicomm #AAASmtg
  96. .@blew1000: Know your audience. It’s the first, last, and middle thing we teach. #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  97. First, last and middle thing to teach in #GradSciComm – know your audience. Lewenstein #GradSciComm #AAASmtg
  98. .@blew1000: we learn better when we hear a story than when we read a graph. #AAASmtg #scicomm #gradscicomm
  99. #gradscicomm core includes knowing your audience, clear writing and storytelling
  100. .@blew1000: knowing your audience is the first, last, and middle thing that communication teachers teach. #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  101. .@blew1000: How do we link public communication of Sci/Tech to general graduate education? #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  102. .@blew1000: core competencies need to include assessment of context, self-reflection, & std communication skills #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  103. @sneakypeteiii Many English dpts offer Rhetoric of Science courses covering these issues; encourage enrollment in these courses #gradscicomm
  104. Q from audience: Is there a distinction in core competencies for different fields? E.g. w/politics and media #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  105. Great Q: is there a consensus re: bringing values, opinion into #scicomm–w which audiences is this appropriate? #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  106. @joseenadia Merci de vos joindre notre #gradscicomm colloque! Had amazing training for @ElenaBennett‘s group (avec @jfbouthillette) in Sept
  107. A from @blew1000: It’s really important for communicators to consider the audience needs, even in politics/media. #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  108. Q: #SciComm to media & policy makers. Should they be differentiated? Lewenstein: Diff audiences will have diff needs #GradSciComm #AAASmtg
  109. Q from audience: What about multicultural audiences? Core competencies for broadening participation? #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  110. Q: how is the work to define #gradscicomm core competencies addressing diversity issues? …A: not systematically. #AAASmtg
  111. A from @blew1000: Multicultural audiences weren’t identified during the study, but we should consider that moving fwd. #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  112. Audience question: what about #gradscicomm for diverse audiences? A: Not one of core competences but should maybe be added. #AAASmtg
  113. @makautry definitely, English/rhetoric depts.don’t usually talk to science departments! #gradscicomm
  114. Question at #gradscicomm #AAASmtg: is coping with specific audiences a focus? Yes! Despite what we heard from comfortable Sr sci journos
  115. @JenEDavison inappropriate to bring personal values to non-editorial, but must discuss consequences & ramifications #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  116. Lots of #scicomm discussion going on at #AAASmtg. Keep up by following the #scicomm & #gradscicomm hashtags, if you’re not already!
  117. @michaelmarieks May be relevant research in informal education field on engaging w/ underserved audiences? #GradSciComm #AAASmtg
  118. Round 2 of #gradscicomm: Rick Tankersley w @NSF on evaluating efficacy of #scicomm for STEM grad students  http://bit.ly/1jgYPVa  #AAASmtg
  119. feel v-day love from @rtankers, he kicks of his talk w/ “the 2 things i love are grad training and comms training” #gradscicomm #AAASmtg
  120. Tankersley: Proficiency levels go from skill acquisition, to application, to mastery. #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  121. Next up:@rtankers from NSF. He’ll talk about core competencies in #gradscicomm and how to evaluate whether they’re effective. #AAASmtg
  122. #gradscicomm #AAASmtg Rick Tankersley NSF IGERT PO talks about what actually works in #scicomm training, data! @DecodeSci @SCAPEMizzou
  123. @LizNeeley Very interested in the #gradscicomm project, since that’s basically my job. Won’t be at scio but perhaps we can meet on campus.
  124. .@rtankers: Value of evaluation lies in matching criteria for proficiency w whether the training provides this #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  125. difference btwn proficiency and skills in #scicomm. need to monitor and evaluate this #gradscicomm #AAASmtg
  126. .@rtankers: “Quite frankly, I had absolutely no idea how to measure communication growth.” #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  127. .@rtankers asked prom mgrs: “How do you measure communication growth?” #1 response: “I know it when I see it”. hmmm #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  128. .@rtankers: After asking a bunch of colleagues, they answered, “I’ll know it when I see it,” and “they’ll tell us” #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  129. what @rtankers heard when asks folks impact of #scicomm training “we know it when we see it” or simply “it worked”. need M&E. #gradscicomm
  130. .@rtankers: developed a protocol based on the 11 competencies, asked teachers to track fellows’ progress thruout yr. #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  131. #gradscicomm #AAASmtg Metrics & evaluation in #scicomm training may feel burdensome, but imagine training for marathon w/o watch or GPS!
  132. .@rtankers: Did the @NSF GK-12 experience result in communication growth? No, sadly. #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  133. .@rtankers after a #scicomm eval saw no communication growth he questioned the measurement tool, but instead, reformed the tool #gradscicomm
  134. .@rtankers identified a “communication triad” for skill growth: practice, feedback & TRAINING (was missing before). #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  135. .@rtankers says the the communication triad is 1) practice 2) feedback/evaluation 3) formal training #gradscicomm #AAASmtg
  136. #gradscicomm @rtankers says practice doesn’t make perfect. Also need training
  137. /div>

    .@rtankers: after including formal #gradscicomm training in the prgm, significant gains in all skill sets.#AAASmtg
  138. #scicomm practice (alone) does not make perfect. Training and feedback is critical. All three. #gradscicomm #AAASmtg #scicomm
  139. #AAASmtg #gradscicomm NOBODY has time or money to waste on things that don’t work. Metrics & evaluation are our only way of actually knowing
  140. Results from #gradscicomm course by @rtankers based on proficiency metrics/eval. Training can work! #AAASmtg pic.twitter.com/u9gKGqikjD
  141. Great Q: should #gradscicomm include dealing w controversy? @rtankers: yes; embedded in competencies #AAASmtg
  142. Éléments clés de la #gradscicomm : formation, pratique et évaluation @rtankers #AAASmtg
  143. Rachel Mitchell is now talking about ENGAGE at @UW #AAASmtg #gradscicomm So many V-day jokes.
  144. MItchell: we are training scientists to a level of expertise, but we need to train them to share this w others #aaasmtg #gradscicomm
  145. a great grad ed #scicomm example started by grad students, ENGAGE at U.W. //bit.ly/NKwuwC #gradscicomm #AAASmtg
  146. Second time “Dont be such a scientist!” Has been mentioned. #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  147. #gradscicomm @rtankers story of evaluation failure my favorite. If metrics show no progress, maybe tool is off, but maybe we need to change
  148. Mitchell: After reading “Unscientific America”, “Don’t Be Such a Scientist”, grad students decided to solve the #gradscicomm prob. #aaasmtg
  149. .@EngageScience started as a book club reading “unscientific american” and “don’t be such a scientist” #gradscicomm #AAASmtg
  150. @LizNeeley @rtankers He said that someone told him “if your kid isn’t getting taller, you don’t question the ruler”… 🙂 #gradscicomm
  151. practical challenges from @EngageScience – find a location? find money? ESP – finding good speakers!! #gradscicomm #AAASmtg
  152. Comms happens from the head, heart, gut and…well, sex appeal – lessons shared by Rachel Mitchell at @EngageScience #gradscicomm #AAASmtg
  153. Mitchell (from @EngageScience) citing Randy Olsen: grad studebt speaking ops too technical. #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  154. #gradscicomm Metrics for writing & comm should be both qualitative & quant – so much about comm can’t be given a number on a scale #AAASmtg
  155. Mitchell: Grad school teaches language of science. Give academic talks but few opportunities to speak to gen public. #gradscicomm #AAASmtg
  156. Mitchell is echoing lack of institutional, faculty support for her #gradscicomm course, even in 2nd yr. #AAASmtg
  157. Mitchell: Challenges for @EngageScience: financial support, organizational structure, logistics for speaker series #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  158. @LizNeeley missing you here at #gradscicomm #AAASmtg, thanks for helping get us all here and making this happen.
  159. Mitchell: partnership w @THSEA allowed @EngageScience to have a fantastic speaker series venue #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  160. Mitchell: Connection with Seattle town hall was critical. They needed openers. Audience went from 6 to >100. #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  161. Mitchell: Then, finally, institutional support came from @UW_CoEnv. #AAASmtg #gradscicomm Lesson may be to keep at it until you get lucky.
  162. .@EngageScience has coached over 100 graduate students in communicating science to the general public. #gradscicomm #AAASmtg
  163. Mitchell: new challenges = increasing demand (yet self-selecting), & need for evaluation of #gradscicomm competencies #AAASmtg
  164. Another #AAASmtg session I hope #gradscicomm followers tracked this AM featured @JohnBesley presenting public opinion & attitudes #SEI14 ch7
  165. Michigan State University’s #scicomm programs are a great example of how faculty and administration support #gradscicomm #AAASmtg
  166. La session sur la #gradscicomm était très intéressante, mais j’ai dû me sauver pour assister à celle-ci : Public Opinion on Science #AAASmtg
  167. Klomparens: it is not easy to learn to do research; we try to provide #gradscicomm skills while minding time-to-degree #AAASmtg
  168. Major challenges for #gradscicomm at Michigan State University include lack of faculty support, time-to-degree, and evaluation #AAASmtg
  169. Can we please call “soft skills” something like “essential skills”? We don’t call research skills “hard skills”. #gradscicomm #AAASmtg
  170. Klomparens: eval. of impact & effectiveness is multi-dimensional. Trying to track short-term and long-term tracking. #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  171. Klomparens: resolving conflict is a major comms skill for grad students! #gradscicomm #AAASmtg
  172. Komplarens is infusing #scicomm education into extant structures like TAing etc. as well. #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  173. Mich State Univ takes career success seriously,  http://bit.ly/1b2wrXe , and they include #scicomm in that. #gradscicomm #AAASmtg
  174. Klomparens: Michigan State University has tools for career success that are available to all. #gradscicomm #aaasmtg  http://grad.vudat.msu.edu/ 
  175. Komplaren: @michiganstateu‘s AGEP comm. meetings challenge students: no powerpoints, no jargon, time limit. #AAASmtg #gradscicomm Yes!
  176. Klomparens gets MSU faculty and staff to learn how to communicate to NSF, and call it “Occupy NSF”. Awesome. #gradscicomm #AAASmtg
  177. more on professional science masters degrees, which include #scicomm that klomparens mentions –  http://bit.ly/1bRNEOe  #gradscicomm #aaasmtg
  178. I am v. impressed with the diversity in size and scope of @michiganstateu programs for #gradscicomm education. #AAASmtg
  179. Klomparens’ description of MSU’s #gradscicomm initiatives is so comprehensive. SO impressive! #AAASmtg
  180. @sneakypeteiii @michiganstateu how to apply this to NAS report briefings? Extra credit for #gradscicomm class – do it for @NASciences rprt!
  181. Klomparens: faculty and students of grad council calling for public abstract as part of theses/dissertations. #gradscicomm #AAASmtg
  182. To review: @michiganstateu, broad career training, communities, classes, public docs/lectures, etc. I’m missing a lot. #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  183. Klomparens: Grad School at MSU takes a lot of the weight of #gradscicomm; expect faculty to put disciplinary twist in #AAASmtg
  184. #AAASmtg #gradscicomm -check out @Science_Comm comprehensive sci com program- writing & programming to exhibit development
  185. #gradscicomm metrics–both qual & quant–should be articulated with edu. assessment now thriving in undergrad ed. But quality assessment=$
  186. Q from audience: 5pm, wknd classes don’t work from ppl w/families, etc. A: Multiple offerings, provide child care, etc #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  187. Most successful pgm seems to be the @michiganstateu @NSF AGEP program, according to Komplarens. Community important. #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  188. Labov: communication is a vital skill, one of many, for science students. #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  189. Labov: People of my generation had 2-3 careers. Students now will have had 10-15 careers. Goals of edu. have changed. #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  190. Jay Labov shares people in his gen have 2 – 3 careers, emerging grads expected to have 10 – 15. MORE reason for #gradscicomm in work force.
  191. Labov: a changing academic ecosystem: fewer grads staying in acedmia, and tenure opps have greatly decreased. #AAASmtg #gradscicomm
  192. Labov passionately talks about how the world is changing, and grad ed has to respond to that, prepare people for that. #gradscicomm #aaasmtg
  193. Labov says that K-12 education won’t improve w/o improving undergrad and grad (that’s where our teachers come from!). #gradscicomm #aaasmtg
  194. Labov says there are not just roadblocks, there are a “not my responsibility” blocks for grad ed. #gradscicomm #AAASmtg
