Becoming a Grading Guru: The Grading Process and Providing Effective Feedback (Pitt UCTL)
Thu 1/25/2018 10:00AM - 11:30AM
Alumni Hall

Location: Alumni Hall Room 815

When we think of grading, we often think of assigning a value to a piece of student work (or a stack of student work, come finals week). Grading is actually a process that, with some instructor planning, yields information that both students and instructors can use to improve student learning.
This workshop will introduce participants to types of student assessment and the steps in the grading process. Employing the alignment model, participants will have the opportunity to evaluate an assignment prompt and practice offering effective feedback. We will briefly discuss models of grading, including grading on a curve.

As a result of completing this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Define assessment.
  • Articulate the difference between formative and summative assessment.
  • Describe characteristics of an effective assessment
  • Explain steps in the grading process
  • Create an assignment prompt which aligns with a learning objective and communicates grading criteria to students
  • Provide effective feedback to students
  • Identify situations in which grading on a curve might be appropriate

This is the first workshop in the Become a Grading Guru series. The series includes:

  1. The Grading Process and Providing Effective Feedback
  2. Designing Rubrics
  3. Designing Better Test Questions

Participants may complete the entire series or can pick and choose individual workshops to develop specific knowledge and skills. This workshop includes an overview of grading best practices and foundational ideas that will be relevant in the Designing Rubrics and Designing Better Test Questions workshops; We recommend taking this workshop prior to the others if possible.

This workshop may be counted toward the Pedagogy concentration of the Achievement in Pedagogy badge, offered through the Graduate Student Teaching Initiative. For more information, see: http://teaching.pitt.edu/pedagogy-credential/ or contact tahelp@pitt.edu.

Registration for University Center for Teaching and Learning workshops is mandatory. Registering for workshops ensures the distribution of pre-workshop materials and helps maintain the integrity of our attendance records.

If you have any special accommodation needs, please contact us at workshops@teaching.pitt.edu in advance.

Paper: Selenium Utilization by GPX4 Is Required to Prevent Hydroperoxide-Induced Ferroptosis

Authors: Ingold I, Berndt C, Schmitt S, et. Al.

Abstract: Selenoproteins are rare proteins among all kingdoms of life containing the 21st amino acid, selenocysteine. Selenocysteine resembles cysteine, differing only by the substitution of selenium for sulfur. Yet the actual advantage of selenolate- versus thiolate-based catalysis has remained enigmatic, as most of the known selenoproteins also exist as cysteine-containing homologs. Here, we demonstrate that selenolate-based catalysis of the essential mammalian selenoprotein GPX4 is unexpectedly dispensable for normal embryogenesis. Yet the survival of a specific type of interneurons emerges to exclusively depend on selenocysteine-containing GPX4, thereby preventing fatal epileptic seizures. Mechanistically, selenocysteine utilization by GPX4 confers exquisite resistance to irreversible overoxidation as cells expressing a cysteine variant are highly sensitive toward peroxide-induced ferroptosis. Remarkably, concomitant deletion of all selenoproteins in Gpx4cys/cys cells revealed that selenoproteins are dispensable for cell viability provided partial GPX4 activity is retained. Conclusively, 200 years after its discovery, a specific and indispensable role for selenium is provided

SUSAN EVANS tells her story in a somewhat humorous way about her ovarian cancer journey in her widely acclaimed book, Don’t Write The Obituary Yet. Dr. Thomas Krivak, one of Pittsburgh’s noted gynecologists/oncologists, collaborated on the book.

    Ovarian cancer claims 14,000 lives a year. It is the hard-to-detect “silent killer” among all cancers in the United States. Susan is a lucky survivor, now in remission. She talks about her adventures in health care as she reveals her inner feelings with frank, unabashed candor.

    The book and presentation have earned coverage among popular media, including KDKA Radio, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Cranberry and Butler Eagle, WSEE-TV, FAITH Magazine cover, Cranberry Life, Diamond Run Magazine, and a growing word-of-mouth network.

    Her proposal to declare the month of September a “Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month” throughout Pennsylvania was approved in bipartisan resolutions by the Senate and House. And, Mayor Bill Peduto of Pittsburgh proclaimed Sept. 12 as “Susan Evans Day” throughout the city in recognition of Susan’s tireless efforts to bring about awareness of ovarian cancer.

Paper: Ion channels enable electrical communication in bacterial communities

Authors: Prindle A, Liu J, Asally M, Ly S, Garcia-Ojalvo J, Süel GM

Abstract: The study of bacterial ion channels has provided fundamental insights into the structural basis of neuronal signalling; however, the native role of ion channels in bacteria has remained elusive. Here we show that ion channels conduct long-range electrical signals within bacterial biofilm communities through spatially propagating waves of potassium. These waves result from a positive feedback loop, in which a metabolic trigger induces release of intracellular potassium, which in turn depolarizes neighbouring cells. Propagating through the biofilm, this wave of depolarization coordinates metabolic states among cells in the interior and periphery of the biofilm. Deletion of the potassium channel abolishes this response. As predicted by a mathematical model, we further show that spatial propagation can be hindered by specific genetic perturbations to potassium channel gating. Together, these results demonstrate a function for ion channels in bacterial biofilms, and provide a prokaryotic paradigm for active, long-range electrical signalling in cellular communities

Paper: Ambient air pollution and thrombosis

Authors: Robertson S1, Miller MR

Abstract: Air pollution is a growing public health concern of global significance. Acute and chronic exposure is known to impair cardiovascular function, exacerbate disease and increase cardiovascular mortality. Several plausible biological mechanisms have been proposed for these associations, however, at present, the pathways are incomplete. A seminal review by the American Heart Association (2010) concluded that the thrombotic effects of particulate air pollution likely contributed to their effects on cardiovascular mortality and morbidity. The aim of the current review is to appraise the newly accumulated scientific evidence (2009-2016) on contribution of haemostasis and thrombosis towards cardiovascular disease induced by exposure to both particulate and gaseous pollutants.Seventy four publications were reviewed in-depth. The weight of evidence suggests that acute exposure to fine particulate matter (PM2.5) induces a shift in the haemostatic balance towards a pro-thrombotic/pro-coagulative state. Insufficient data was available to ascertain if a similar relationship exists for gaseous pollutants, and very few studies have addressed long-term exposure to ambient air pollution. Platelet activation, oxidative stress, interplay between interleukin-6 and tissue factor, all appear to be potentially important mechanisms in pollution-mediated thrombosis, together with an emerging role for circulating microvesicles and epigenetic changes.Overall, the recent literature supports, and arguably strengthens, the contention that air pollution contributes to cardiovascular morbidity by promoting haemostasis. The volume and diversity of the evidence highlights the complexity of the pathophysiologic mechanisms by which air pollution promotes thrombosis; multiple pathways are plausible and it is most likely they act in concert. Future research should address the role gaseous pollutants play in the cardiovascular effects of air pollution mixture and direct comparison of potentially susceptible groups to healthy individuals.

Mapping is a great way to visualize and analyze information – and to tell stories. In this introductory workshop, you’ll learn the principles of mapmaking using the latest in paper and marker-based technologies. You’ll understand how computers are used to plot addresses on a map, conduct basic spatial analysis, and update records in a database based on location. Along with a deeper-appreciation for computers, this class will provide you with a solid foundation of mapping concepts and processes, and get you prepared to take your first computer-based mapping class.

No computers will be used in this class, and there are no prerequisites.

Paper: γPNA FRET Pair Miniprobes for Quantitative Fluorescent In Situ Hybridization to Telomeric DNA in Cells and Tissue

Authors: Orenstein A, Berlyoung AS, Rastede EE, Pham HH, Fouquerel E, Murphy CT, Leibowitz BJ, Yu J, Srivastava T, Armitage BA, Opresko PL

Abstract: Measurement of telomere length by fluorescent in situ hybridization is widely used for biomedical and epidemiological research, but there has been relatively little development of the technology in the 20 years since it was first reported. This report describes the use of dual gammaPNA (γPNA) probes that hybridize at alternating sites along a telomere and give rise to Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET) signals. Bright staining of telomeres is observed in nuclei, chromosome spreads and tissue samples. The use of FRET detection also allows for elimination of wash steps, normally required to remove unhybridized probes that would contribute to background signals. We found that these wash steps can diminish the signal intensity through the removal of bound, as well as unbound probes, so eliminating these steps not only accelerates the process but also enhances the quality of staining. Thus, γPNA FRET pairs allow for brighter and faster staining of telomeres in a wide range of research and clinical formats.

Becoming a Grading Guru: Designing Rubrics (Pitt UCTL) Professional Development Event
Becoming a Grading Guru: Designing Rubrics (Pitt UCTL)
Wed 2/21/2018 1:00PM - 2:30PM
Alumni Hall

Location: Alumni Hall Room 815

Asking students to perform authentic, complex tasks can provoke higher-level learning, but how can we assess a complicated assignment when it has no “correct” answer? Using rubrics can help you assess the seemingly-unassessable. Rubrics also help clarify and communicate your expectations to your students and make for a simpler, faster, and fair grading process. In this workshop, we’ll present different types of rubric, review rubric design best practices, and guide participants through the process of beginning to create a rubric to use in their courses.

As a result of completing this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Define a rubric and identify its components
  • Recognize when it might be appropriate to use a rubric
  • Describe types of rubrics
  • Describe best practices in rubric creation
  • Explain how rubrics can be used as instructional tools
  • Begin to create a rubric which demonstrates alignment to a learning objective, clear performance criteria, and distinct levels of performance

This is the second workshop in the Becoming a Grading Guru series. The series includes:

1. The Grading Process and Providing Effective Feedback
2. Designing Rubrics
3. Designing Better Test Questions

Participants may complete the entire series or can pick and choose individual workshops to develop specific knowledge and skills. We recommend that participants enroll in the first workshop in the series, The Grading Process and Providing Effective Feedback, before completing Designing Rubrics if possible, because it includes an overview of grading best practices and foundational ideas that will be relevant in other workshops in this series.

This workshop may be counted toward the Pedagogy concentration of the Achievement in Pedagogy badge, offered through the Graduate Student Teaching Initiative. For more information, see: http://teaching.pitt.edu/pedagogy-credential/ or contact tahelp@pitt.edu.

Registration for University Center for Teaching and Learning workshops is mandatory. Registering for workshops ensures the distribution of pre-workshop materials and helps maintain the integrity of our attendance records.

Paper: Gut microbiome influences efficacy of PD-1-based immunotherapy against epithelial tumors

Authors: Routy B, Le Chatelier E, et Al.

Abstract: Immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) targeting the PD-1/PD-L1 axis induce sustained clinical responses in a sizable minority of cancer patients. We found that primary resistance to ICIs can be attributed to abnormal gut microbiome composition. Antibiotics inhibited the clinical benefit of ICIs in patients with advanced cancer. Fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) from cancer patients who responded to ICIs into germ-free or antibiotic-treated mice ameliorated the antitumor effects of PD-1 blockade, whereas FMT from nonresponding patients failed to do so. Metagenomics of patient stool samples at diagnosis revealed correlations between clinical responses to ICIs and the relative abundance of Akkermansia muciniphila Oral supplementation with A. muciniphila after FMT with nonresponder feces restored the efficacy of PD-1 blockade in an interleukin-12-dependent manner by increasing the recruitment of CCR9+CXCR3+CD4+ T lymphocytes into mouse tumor beds.

Paper: Declining exposures to lead and cadmium contribute to explaining the reduction of cardiovascular mortality in the US population, 1988–2004

Authors: Adrian Ruiz-Hernandez, Ana Navas-Acien, Roberto Pastor-Barriuso, Ciprian M Crainiceanu, Josep Redon, Eliseo Guallar, Maria Tellez-Plaza

Abstract:

Background
Lead and cadmium exposures have markedly declined in the USA following the implementation of large-scale public health policies and could have contributed to the unexplained decline in cardiovascular mortality in US adults. We evaluated the potential contribution of lead and cadmium exposure reductions to explain decreasing cardiovascular mortality trends occurring in the USA from 1988–94 to 1999–2004.

Methods
Prospective study in 15 421 adults ≥40 years old who had participated in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 1988–94 or 1999–2004. We estimated the amount of change in cardiovascular mortality over time that can be independently attributed to the intermediate pathway of changes in blood lead and urine cadmium concentrations.

Results
There was a 42.0% decrease in blood lead and a 31.0% decrease in urine cadmium concentrations. The cardiovascular mortality rate ratio [95% confidence intervals (CIs)] associated with a doubling of metal levels was 1.19 (1.07, 1.31) for blood lead and 1.20 (1.09, 1.32) for urine cadmium. The absolute reduction in cardiovascular deaths comparing 1999–2004 to 1988–94 was 230.7 deaths/100 000 person-years, in models adjusted for traditional cardiovascular risk factors. Among these avoided deaths, 52.0 (95% CI 8.4, 96.7) and 19.4 (4.3, 36.4) deaths/100 000 person-years were attributable to changes in lead and cadmium, respectively.

Conclusions
Environmental declines in lead and cadmium exposures were associated with reductions in cardiovascular mortality in US adults. Given the fact that lead and cadmium remain associated with cardiovascular disease at relatively low levels of exposure, prevention strategies that further minimize exposure to lead and cadmium may be needed.

As part of the Provost’s Year of Healthy U initiative, we are organizing a one-day cross-disciplinary conference around the topic of family and health. In this conference, we will focus on the central role of the family as a fundamental building block of society. Family is often the foundation of determining a healthy (or unhealthy) lifestyle for all family members. Family narrative and dynamics, gender identity, kinship and social organization, race, literacy, household income, and sociolinguistic background represent the early input children receive and shape the construction of identities, roles in society and expectations and values. They affect the earliest experiences which impact our health.The Year of Healthy U and this conference represent a unique opportunity to convene experts to discuss the diverse roles family plays in health and well-being and to discuss how to make our community safe and healthy for all.

Global Healthcare Delivery Course: Harvard Medical School
Fri 6/8/2018 to Sat 6/9/2018


The program is designed to give practicing clinicians an introduction to best practices in the provision of health services in low-resource settings globally. The course will discuss the biosocial determinants of health and disease and explore how programs that deliver healthcare in low-resource settings address these factors to improve the health of the communities they serve.
 
Topics covered in the program will include: 
- Understanding the global burden of disease and social determinants of health, 
- Infectious Diseases: HIV prevention and treatment and global tuberculosis control, 
- Non-communicable disease prevention and treatment: cancer care in global health, emergency medical care in global settings, global surgery, and mental health in a global context, 
- Human resource capacity building: the role of community health workers in health service delivery, and
- Global healthcare policy.  
The course will be taught through lectures and an interactive case approach that seek to provide participants with a rich understanding of the complexities of health care delivery in low-resource settings.
The program will include two days of course work and case discussions as well as a “meet the faculty” reception.
