“Effective Course Design: Intentional Blending of Synchronous and Asynchronous Learning.” Regardless of course modality, all Corvallis and Cascades campus courses involve learning in person during synchronous class meetings and asynchronously outside of class. How can we best leverage both types of learning activities to ensure all students have an equitable opportunity to be successful? In this interactive session, learn ways to do this through intentional design. Feb. 7, 11-11:50 a.m. Registration.

Carleton College — visiting position in Chemistry
I am writing to let you know about a position we have recently posted for a one-year, Visiting Assistant Professor position at Carleton College for 2023–2024. We believe this position can be excellent preparation for chemists who are interested in a career focused on teaching and research in an undergraduate environment, and Carleton provides a variety of mentoring and professional development resources for all faculty, including those in visiting positions.
Given your position as department chair, I am hoping you might know current/recent grad students and postdocs who could be a good fit for this position. If so, would you mind forwarding this email to them and/or to colleagues who may be able to spread the word?
Please feel free to email me or put students/postdocs in touch with me if they have any questions, and thanks for your consideration!

–Key steps at each stage of a search.
–Roles and responsibilities of search committee members.
–Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action in the hiring process.
–Important resources such as the New Employee Onboarding website.
New material in this online training complements OSU’s existing Search Advocate training and is recommended to be completed by all supervisors, search committee chairs and search committee members. HR’s Recruitment team and HR Strategic Partners are available to answer questions about the material or facilitate search committee discussions about how best to implement best practices. At OSU-Cascades, please contact Kelsey Morris or Anthony Parker-Hoang for their expertise.
The online training can be accessed directly at https://beav.es/5r5. You will be asked for your ONID credentials if you are not already logged in, then taken to Bridge, the OSU Learning Management System. Alternately, visit https://training.oregonstate.edu and log in as an OSU employee and look for HR Search Committee Training under the Business Services category. An e-certificate will be generated by Bridge when you have completed the online course.
We anticipate regularly updating the online course material. To recommend improvements to this training or other search-focused learning opportunities, please contact Carolyn Warfield, director of HR Strategic Partners, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Future of Semiconductors (NSF)call for proposals
NSF released an amended call for proposals for the future of semiconductors (FuSe). The deadline is April 24, 2023.
The goal of this solicitation is to cultivate a broad coalition of researchers and educators from across science and engineering communities that utilizes a holistic, co-design approach to fundamental research and workforce education and training, to enable rapid progress in new semiconductor technologies. The future of semiconductor manufacturing will require the design and deployment of diverse new technologies in materials, chemical and materials processes, devices, and architectures through the development of application-driven systems.
Partnerships between industry and academic institutions are essential to spur innovation and technology transfer, to inform the research needs, and to train the future workforce.
Industry Partners co-funding this FuSe solicitation:
NSF will fund ~ 20 FuSe Research and Education Grants to be awarded as Standard awards or Continuing grants for periods of up to three years and at up to $2M per grant.
