Social media is used for informal communication by most and is used by companies for a host of activities including marketing. The session will cover the top tools used for social media and the broad usage by people of all ages. How people’s willingness to share openly about themselves through social media, turns social media into a tool for reaching a greater audience to promote a college program and to gather evidence to meet grant outcomes.

Join Lisa Friedersdorf as she discusses the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI), the U.S. Government’s nanotechnology research and development effort spanning 20 departments and independent agencies and commissions. The four goals of the NNI are to advance nanotechnology R&D; foster technology transfer for public benefit; develop and sustain educational resources, a skilled workforce, and a dynamic infrastructure and toolset to advance nanotechnology; and support the responsible development of nanotechnology. This presentation will share some of the ways the NNI goals are being advanced and highlight the resources being developed to promote nanoscale science and engineering education.

The Historic Preservation and Collections Department at George Washington’s Mount Vernon is pleased to host our fifth one-day symposium on the deployment of GIS in the management and research of historic resources on Monday, September 19, 2016. The Fred W. Smith National Library for the Study of George Washington will provide the setting for the symposium and we invite speakers to share their strategies and experiences on the varied uses of GIS.

Awareness of ethical pitfalls, and the ability to apply moral reasoning skills when confronted with ethical challenges, is part of what it means to be a geospatial professional. It should also be part of what students learn about GIS and GIScience. During his presentation, DiBiase plans to describe the National Science Foundation (NSF)-sponsored GIS Professional Ethics Project, and the collection of ethical case studies the project has produced, and explain how the case method has been applied in a mandatory ethics workshop for students in Penn State University's online masters degree in GIS.

Beyond the case studies, he plans on discussing ethical challenges that students have cited, sharing assessments of the workshop’s effectiveness, and discussing how ethics cases - along with GIS Code of Ethics and other resources related to geospatial ethics, law and policy - might be deployed in work settings for continuing professional development.

Seeking to gain hands-on policy experience and apply your STEM training to address societal challenges? Are you a social scientist (psychologist, anthropologist, sociologist, economist) wondering if an S&T Policy Fellowship is right for you? Policy fellows with a background in social sciences have much to contribute and gain from the fellowship experience. Collaborate and brainstorm with high ranking policy leaders. And do it in the company of 200+ talented global scientists and engineers.
