“...simply part of our job.” Aslin’s words are inspiring.
MUST-READ: Dick Aslin's words are a must-reed for all mentors who care about protecting their students from abuse. His leadership award from @WomenInCogSci was hard-earned and well deserved. https://t.co/A5FgYsuo9B
New work from Pooja Sidney, Clarissa Thompson & Ferdinand Rivera on how visual models support student reasoning about fraction division. Comparison of circle area, rectangular area, & number line models. Gr. 5&6 students had greatest success with number line models. #PMENA2018
My small and problematic role in the Dartmouth saga:
In 2010, I was offered a faculty position in the PBS department at Dartmouth. I was excited! It was the Ivy League! The Appalachian Trail goes through the center of campus! (1/8)
Dick Aslin also awarded for Enduring Leadership from @WomenInCogSci. "Only recently did I realize there's a dark side that runs both broad & deep... my singular regret is not recognizing that not everyone treats women in science as we all would want to be treated..." (1of2)
I stand in righteous fury beside fellow women in science in filing a lawsuit against Dartmouth. We want our voices to be heard. We demand to be taken seriously. We demand change. Thread (1/10)
This will transform the translation of science into policy and implementation as thousands of developing country practitioners and policy makers get full access to cutting edge research for the first time. Bravo @wellcometrust. Bravo @gatesfoundation. https://t.co/elc0NBBb6S
Today was the Princeton Day of Statistics. Eight invited speakers. Zero were women. Zero women at the podium. I wasn't aware it was happening until someone mentioned the horrible gender ratio of attendees. This is unacceptable, Princeton. Do better. https://t.co/p08o7TdWMs
