AISES Internship Opportunity at BMM Test Labs

BMM Testlabs Partners with AISES for Exciting 2018 Summer Internship Opportunity

AISES is proud to announce that BMM Testlabs, a gaming testing laboratory and technical consultancy, will be partnering with AISES for the 2018 BMM Testlabs Internship Program. Applications are now being accepted through February 16, 2018.

The 10-week internship will run from June through August 2018 at BMM’s headquarters in Las Vegas. As a donor to the AISES scholarship fund for a number of years, BMM and AISES created the internship to further Tribal students’ opportunities. The program will provide students with applied work experience and an opportunity to explore career options in the casino gaming industry. The intern will assist test engineers as part of a team responsible for: assessing gaming technology integrity, accountability and functionality, performing statistical analysis of gaming device and game probabilities, reviewing gaming device and system source code and assist with the development of testing procedures.

BMM’s Jodi DiLascio, Director, Tribal Gaming and Member, NIGA Board of Directors, commented, “BMM is honored to be a part of a program that supports education for Tribal students. Our commitment to the Tribal community is great and we can only hope to continue to work with amazing organizations, like AISES, to expand their opportunities.”

Kellie Jewett-Fernandez (Cheyenne River Lakota), Director of Business and Program Development with AISES stated, “Internships provide AISES students with opportunities to explore career options and gain valuable work experience. As the gaming industry continues to be a significant part of Tribal economies across the country, AISES is thrilled to work with BMM in their efforts to connect students with exciting opportunities in the technical workforce.”

  1. CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: DESIGNING STUDENT-CENTERED LEARNING EXPERIENCES 2018 SUMMER INSTITUTE AT OLIN COLLEGE

 

The 2018 Collaboratory Summer Institute, Designing Student-Centered Learning Experienceshttp://www.olin.edu/collaborate/collaboratory/summer-institute/, will be held June 4-8, 2018, at Olin College of Engineering in Needham, Massachusetts.  The Olin Collaboratory Summer Institute is an intensive week-long immersion designed to provide participants from around the country and around the world with the opportunity to conceive and catalyze change in education.

 

Designing Student-Centered Learning Experiences is a weeklong interactive workshop for faculty teams engaged in a curricular change effort at their own institution. Through participatory workshops, immersive design exercises, and presentations from experts, teams of faculty learn about, experience, and practice effective, engaging teaching approaches for new and meaningful STEM curricula. Through the Summer Institute experience, we aim to create a learning environment for participants that

  • Embraces creativity, prototyping, iterating, and dreaming big,
  • Introduces a set of tools, concepts, and language about student-centered experience design,
  • Promotes exploration of your context in a new way and provides insight into what we do here at Olin, and
  • Builds community among educators, change agents, designers, and learners.

 

Alongside participants from other institutions, you and your team will develop concrete action plans for curricular change. Sessions are highly participatory and you will be challenged to continually consider new ideas and put novel approaches into practice. Institute attendees will acquire a new lens through which to view their projects, an expanded repertoire of techniques and solutions, and concrete steps to take their plans forward.

Past attendees have included Deans, experienced and new faculty, staff, instructional designs, and faculty developers to name a few. All participants should be prepared to spend the full week deeply engaged in this demanding program. Applicants must apply in teams of at least three and describe a project (in the contemplation, planning, or execution stage) at their home institution.
Who Should Attend:  The Institute is designed for faculty and administrators from a wide variety of institutions, including public, private, STEM, liberal arts, community colleges, research universities and K-12 programs, who are currently involved in a curricular change effort.
Application Guidelines:  Institute applicants are asked to describe the project on which they are working. Applications will be reviewed on the extent to which the team is likely to benefit from the Institute and advance its project goals. To learn more about the application process, visit https://www.olin.edu/collaborate/collaboratory/summer-institute/apply/.
APPLICATION DEADLINE: February 28, 2018

  1. GRADUATE STUDENT EXPERIENCES SURVEY: SURVEY ON GRADUATE STUDENT ENGINEERING IDENTITY AND MOTIVATION IN GRADUATE ENGINEERING PROGRAMS

Dear Colleagues,

 

We are conducting a National Science Foundation funded study (#1535254) on graduate student engineering identity and motivation in graduate programs. The survey is voluntary, confidential, accessible online, and will only take students about 15 minutes to complete.

 

We have selected a nationally representative sample of engineering graduate programs to participate in the survey and will be sending emails to graduate program directors inviting those programs to participate. If you receive an email, please help us by providing an email list of graduate engineering students. If you would like your program’s students to be included, please provide an email list of students here. Participating programs will receive aggregate information about their students’ responses.

 

For more information about the project, please visit our website here.

 

Thank you for your time,
