Join Us This Spring for CoDEx and TEACHx

Northwestern IT, in partnership with the Office of the Provost, is pleased to announce two upcoming events showcasing the exciting research, teaching, and learning achievements of University students, postdocs, faculty, and staff.

Computation and Data Exchange (CoDEx) – April 2

On Tuesday, April 2, the new Computation and Data Exchange (CoDEx) research symposium will be held at Norris University Center on the Evanston Campus. This all-day, campus-wide event will showcase computational and data-enabled research at Northwestern and share these practices with the Northwestern research community.

The program includes morning and afternoon guest keynotes, parallel sessions, lightning talks, workshops, a poster competition, and a visualization challenge. All Northwestern researchers, including faculty, students, postdocs, and staff, are invited to register. In addition, undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to participate in the Poster Session and Visualization Challenge for a chance to win prizes, including $3,000 towards a conference of their choice, and Lightning Talks. Learn how to participate.

  • Be inspired by guest keynotes Beth Plale, executive director of Indiana University’s Pervasive Technology Institute, and Thomas McDade, professor of anthropology at Northwestern.
  • Hear from faculty and students about computational and data-intensive research projects being explored at Northwestern.
  • Discover solutions and discuss challenges the Northwestern research community faces in computation, data science, AI or machine learning, and other data-enabled research.
  • Learn about the support and services available from Research Computing and Data Services.
  • Engage with others conducting computational and data-intensive research across Evanston and Chicago campuses.

The event is open to all Northwestern community members. To learn more and register, please visit the CoDEx website.

TEACHx – May 15–16

TEACHx is an annual conference designed to spark innovation in teaching and learning. This year's TEACHx takes place May 15–16 at the Norris University Center. The two-day event includes opportunities to learn about technological advances and innovative approaches impacting teaching and learning through hands-on demonstrations, interactive workshops, lively conversations, and thought-provoking presentations. 

  • Hear from keynote speaker Susan D. Blum, PhD, professor of anthropology at the University of Notre Dame, who will inspire you to think about grading in a whole new way.
  • Focus on inclusion by attending the featured workshop offered by Luis Perez, disability and digital inclusion lead for CAST (Center for Applied Special Technology), which is sponsored by AccessibleNU. Learn about creating, delivering, and using high-quality, accessible educational materials and technologies to support equitable learning opportunities for all students.
  • Collaborate with instructors pioneering experiments in teaching and learning through technology and creating solutions to today's challenges.
  • Share reflections on and experiences navigating generative AI's impact on teaching and learning, practices you have adopted in your teaching to take care of yourself and others, engaging in civil discourse, strategies for creating active learning spaces, and more.
  • Connect with peers from Northwestern and other regional higher education institutions through engaging sessions, access to experts, and stimulating conversations with peers.

There is no cost to attend for members of the Northwestern community. Registration opens on March 20. To learn more, visit the TEACHx website.
