Wil Slough Selected for Deans' Teaching Showcase

College of Sciences and Arts Dean David Hemmer has selected Wil Slough as this week's featured instructor in the Deans’ Teaching Showcase.

Slough, director of first-year programs and laboratory director in the Department of Physics, will be recognized at an end-of-term event with other showcase members and is a candidate for the CTL Instructional Award Series.

Slough has made substantial contributions to teaching calculus-based physics courses and labs at Michigan Tech. Over the past decade, he anchored one of the very large physics courses during spring semesters, with enrollments often exceeding 650 students. In this capacity, he successfully maintained the learning management system, online homework system, classroom response system, examinations and accommodations, and popular office hours. His efforts have served a crucial role in ensuring the quality, consistency and effectiveness of these foundational courses over time.

Illustrative of Slough's dedication to helping students succeed and improving the experiences of first-year students at Michigan Tech, he took the initiative to engage the department in examining worrisome trends in DFW rates in PH2100. This led to campuswide discussions and, finally, the development of a supplementary instruction course for students needing additional support. “Student success in our large introductory science courses is critical to Michigan Tech’s overall success, and our students are fortunate to have faculty as dedicated as Wil Slough,” commented Hemmer.

The physics department also offers over 100 introductory physics lab sections for approximately 2,000 students each year. As the laboratory director, Slough supervises all lab courses, oversees equipment, manages the operational budget and supports 60 employees. Over the years, he has developed and implemented a robust and fully integrated approach to the physics labs, with resulting courses that have received high student satisfaction in evaluations. He has led the continuous improvement efforts for junior-level capstone lab courses based on assessments, further demonstrating his commitment to enhancing the quality of the lab offerings to benefit student learning. His efforts have also helped the department identify and remedy impediments to student retention.

Physics Chair Ravindra Pandey has strong praise for Slough’s impact within the department. “Wil is an exceptional teacher who cares about engaging students in their learning and has made a meaningful contribution to improving the quality of education and student outcomes in the physics department,” said Pandey.

John Jaszczak, chair of the department's undergraduate studies committee, has worked with Slough for many years. "Not only is Wil remarkable in his capacity to effectively manage and teach the large lectures and laboratories, but I am also most impressed with his continuous personal touch with students,” said Jaszczak. “He proactively connects with them via email and in person to ensure they are keeping up with assignments and taking advantage of office hours and other resources. He also regularly checks with his student employees in a friendly and supportive manner to ensure they thrive in the physics department. He is a role model as a supervisor.”

ADVANCE Weekly Roundup: An Approach and Resources to Improve Faculty Evaluation Practices

Multiple studies have scrutinized faculty evaluation practices and processes, identifying and quantifying the ways in which the historical construct of academic merit, upon which accolades and credit depend, is inequitable. While these findings can be discouraging and disheartening, ADVANCE is intentionally taking a broader perspective that the many studies about inequities in faculty evaluation systems have also yielded promising indicators and tools for changing those inequities.

Recent calls for data-based audits of faculty evaluation and merit systems seek to revise how we understand and measure performance and achievement in academe. Such audits can ground more equitable, transparent and accountable processes. Continuous improvement practices that involve audits and adjustments can increase morale and productivity for faculty and the institution.

The following resources shared by the American Council on Education provide:

  1. An audit of faculty evaluation policies,
  2. A list of adjustments that focus on equitable principles, and
  3. Examples of implemented faculty evaluation reforms.

An audit of Michigan Tech’s evaluation practices with a focus on transparency, clarity, accountability, consistency and flexibility within context could identify areas for improvement of Tech's evaluative feedback mechanisms.

Today’s feature was shared with us by the ADVANCE PI Team. If you have an article you think we should feature, please email it to advance-mtu@mtu.edu and we will consider adding it to the ADVANCE Weekly Roundup.

The ADVANCE Weekly Roundup is brought to you by ADVANCE at Michigan Tech, an NSF-funded initiative dedicated to improving faculty career success, retention, diversity, equity and inclusion. Past articles are available on the ADVANCE Newsblog.

PhD Defense: Isaac Wedig, KIP

Ph.D. in Integrative Physiology candidate Isaac Wedig will defend his dissertation today (April 14) at noon in ATDC 101.

The title of Wedig's dissertation is "Physical Activity as Medicine During the COVID-19 Pandemic and Beyond." Please visit the KIP Newsblog for more information.

Wedig is advised by Steven Elmer.

From the abstract:
During the COVID-19 pandemic, physical activity levels have decreased and sitting time has increased. This is a major concern as physical inactivity increases the risk for severe COVID-19 outcomes. Evidence also indicates that COVID-19 survivors can experience reduced physical function (i.e., ability to complete daily living activities) long after acute illness. Currently, there are no evidence-based guidelines for recovering physical function following COVID-19 infection. Exercise with blood flow restriction (BFR) presents a promising rehabilitation strategy as the benefits of traditional exercise can be achieved using lower intensities. However, several barriers such as cost, access to equipment, and lack of standardized methods limit its use.


PhD Defense: Zachary Jeffries, ECE

Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering candidate Zachary Jeffries will defend his doctoral dissertation today (April 14) at 2 p.m. in person in EERC 501 and virtually via Zoom.

The title of Jeffries’ dissertation is "Evaluation of Lidar Uncertainty and Applications Towards SLAM in Off-Road Environments."

Jeffries is advised by Jeremy Bos.

MS Defense: Christina Boody, BioSci

M.S. in Biological Sciences candidate Christina Boody will present a master's defense today (April 14) from 3-4 p.m. in Dow 708. Virtual attendance is also invited via Zoom.

Boody's defense is titled “Establishing Degradation of the C. elegans DREAM Complex in the Germline.”

From the abstract:
The highly conserved Dp, Rb, E2F, and MuvB (DREAM) complex is responsible for the transcriptional repression of cell cycle genes. The DREAM complex has been extensively studied in somatic (non-reproductive) cells, but there is a gap in knowledge regarding how the DREAM complex may function in germ (reproductive) cells. To demonstrate loss-of-function of DREAM in the germline, we used the auxin inducible degron (AID) system to establish degradation of LIN-54, a subunit of DREAM’s MuvB subcomplex, and the Retinoblastoma-like pocket protein LIN-35 in C. elegans. Using transgenic lines that express the Arabidopsis thaliana TIR1 E3 ubiquitin ligase ubiquitously through all C. elegans tissues or specifically only in somatic tissue, we evaluated the effects following treatment of auxin that triggers TIR1-mediated rapid degradation of degron-tagged LIN-54 or degron-tagged LIN-35. In our LIN54 evaluation, brood size counting experiments showed a difference in fertility between worms exposed to auxin and the control group in both TIR1 transgenic lines, suggesting either that LIN-54’s somatic activity is important for fertility or the somatic-expressed TIR1 transgene had some activity in the germline. Subsequent fluorescence microscopy revealed decreased expression of LIN-54 or LIN-35 in the germline in each TIR1-expressing transgenic worm background when exposed to auxin, as compared to the control group, indicating that the somatically-expressed TIR1 transgene does have activity in the germline. These results suggest that DREAM disruption in the germline negatively affects germ cell production and fertility. Our results underscore that new TIR1-expressing transgenic lines will have to be generated to confirm that DREAM’s somatic activity does not contribute to fertility in some form.


MS Defense: Kimia Hamidzadeh, ChE

M.S. in Chemical Engineering candidate Kimia Hamidzadeh will present their M.S. defense today (April 14) at 10 a.m. in person in Chem Sci 201 and virtually via Zoom.

The title of Hamidzadeh's defense is "Microscopic Dynamics of the Bubble Motion and Thin Liquid Film During Bubble Impact on Horizontal and Inclined Surfaces."

Hamidzadeh is advised by Lei Pan.


‘She Said’ Movie Event

In recognition of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, SAVE (Sexual Assault and Violence Education), the MTU Film Board and Title IX will show the award-winning movie “She Said” on Sunday (April 16) at 6 p.m. in Fisher 135.

The movie is based on actual events in which two journalists work to shake up the system and expose decades of silence surrounding sexual assault and harassment in Hollywood. We invite students, faculty and staff to join us for this showing and to support our awareness and prevention efforts on Michigan Tech’s campus. Admission to the movie is free, and all attendees will get a drink and snack of their choice at no cost.

We believe that by coming together and starting the conversation about sexual violence, we can educate, raise awareness and create a culture of prevention, ultimately leading to a safer and more supportive campus community. Dial Help and University staff members will be available at the event with on-campus, local and national resources.

MTU Students Receive NSF Graduate Research Fellowships

Jenna Brewer, a Michigan Tech graduate student, and Megan Guyer, a Tech undergraduate student, have been awarded National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowships. Another graduate student who earned their bachelor’s degree and received NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) writing support at Tech, Kaylee Meyers, was also awarded. Two additional Tech graduate students, Hunter Roose and Reed Arneson, received honorable mentions.

The oldest STEM-related fellowship program in the United States, the NSF GRFP is a prestigious award that recognizes exceptional graduate students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines early in their career and supports them through graduate education. NSF GRFP fellows are an exceptional group; 42 fellows have become Nobel Laureates and about 450 fellows are members of the National Academy of Sciences.

The fellowship provides three years of financial support, including a $37,000 stipend for each fellow and a $12,000 cost-of-education allowance for the fellow’s institution. Besides financial support for fellows, the GRFP provides opportunities for research in national laboratories and international research.

The Graduate School is proud of these students for their outstanding scholarship. These awards highlight the quality of students at Michigan Tech, the innovative work they have accomplished, the potential for leadership and impact in science and engineering that the country recognizes in these students, and the incredible role that faculty play in students’ academic success.
