The LSC Research committee is organizing an introductory workshop on Git, a version control system.

The LSC Communication & Professional Development Committee will be hosting a session on crafting your elevator pitch.  An elevator pitch is a brief (1-2 minute) description of your research, typically for someone who is not in your immediate field.  These pitches are useful for a range of situations, including job interviews, outreach, talking to policy makers, etc.  If you don't have one, now is your chance to make one!

Title: Using Technology to Support Language Growth

This UMD-internal workshop aims to connect researchers from diverse backgrounds who work on issues related to language and literacy development and SES. We have two primary goals: (1) to raise awareness about on-campus research related to family, school, and societal dynamics around SES, and (2) to initiate cross-department conversations and collaborations around these issues. This workshop is co-sponsored by the Language Science Center and the Field Committee in Developmental Science.

The 9th annual Winter Storm will be a great opportunity to meet, collaborate with, and learn from fellow language scientists. The workshop will feature sessions on career development, outreach and research communication, and technical skills, as well as faculty talks, interdisciplinary research group discussions, and social activities. The last day (January 20) will be a special Day of Action, devoted to crafting matterials to influence policymakers at all levels, and inform the general public.
