Admissions Selection (Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences) [Full] 14:00 - 17:00 Wolfson College, Chancellor's Centre, Roger Needham Building


The Senior Tutors' Committee expects those involved in the undergraduate admissions selection process to receive appropriate training. These workshops cover the entire selection process as well as interviewing techniques. Led by Admissions Tutors, they are designed to help you make your contribution to the admissions selection process as effective as possible. They include opportunities to practise by interviewing current first-year undergraduates, using authentic paperwork, and they explain how interviews and admissions decisions relate to the University’s agreement with the Office for Fair Access (OFFA).

The workshop will focus on mock interviews, with first-year undergraduates in related disciplines, and on discussion with an Admissions Tutor. We have asked all volunteer interviewees to consent to our circulating their application papers to participants in advance of the workshop, so that you may consider possible approaches to interviewing mock applicants. Closer to the date of the session we will send you copies of the handouts by email, to be printed and taken with you to the session.

Before attending the workshop, please study the online module. This module provides an overview of Cambridge's undergraduate admissions process and highlights some important principles and practices relating to conducting effective admissions.

This instructor-led fee based course has been commissioned by the UIS through a third party company.

You will receive hands-on instruction and practice configuring advanced Windows Server 2016.

This course is part three in a series of three courses that provides the skills and knowledge necessary to implement a core Windows Server 2016 infrastructure in an existing enterprise environment. The three courses collectively cover implementing, managing, maintaining and provisioning services and infrastructure in a Windows Server 2016 environment.

Although there is some cross-over of skills and tasks across these courses, this course focuses on advanced configuration of services necessary to deploy, manage and maintain a Windows Server 2016 infrastructure, such as Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS), Group Policy, Managing User Settings with GPO's, Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) and Active Directory Certificate Services (AD CS).

This course maps directly to and is the preferred choice for hands-on preparation for Identity with Windows Server 2016: Exam 70-742, which is the third of three exams required for MCSA: Windows Server 2016 certification.

For those who wish to commence with the MTA entry-level credential from Microsoft there are a number of Online courses listed in Related courses below that would be relevant.

Leading your Team Through Change (2 of 2) In progress 09:30 - 12:30 Greenwich House, Edmonton Room


Change is a constant feature in today’s workplace and yet many of us find it hard to navigate successfully through change.

Studies show that the line manager has a critical role to play in ensuring staff are ready for change and in successfully implementing it. These sessions will equip you with the skills and attitudes you need to guide, support and motivate your team through the process of change.

Case studies, discussion and activities will provide the opportunity to share ideas and embed skills.

How to write an academic paper and get it published [Places] 09:30 - 16:30 PPD, Revans Room

The course takes an evidence-based approach to writing. Participants will learn that publishing is a game and the more they understand the rules of the game the higher their chances of becoming publishing authors. They will learn that writing an academic article and getting it published may help with their careers but it does not make them better researchers, or cleverer than they were before their paper was accepted; it simply means they have played the game well.

Suitable for GSLS postgraduates in any discipline who are keen to learn how to write academic papers and articles efficiently as well as more established researchers who have had papers rejected and are not really sure why.

If you want a better chance of your name on a paper, this is for you!

Trainer

Olivia Timbs is an award-winning editor and journalist with over 30 years' experience gained from working on national newspapers and for a range of specialist health and medical journals.

The course website providing links to the course materials is here.

Please note that although we will demonstrate how to perform statistical analysis in R, we will not cover the theory of statistical analysis in this course. Those seeking an in-depth explanation of how to perform and interpret statistical tests are advised to see the list of Related courses. Moreover, those with some programming experience in other languages (e.g. Python, Perl) might wish to attend the follow-on Data Analysis and Visualisation in R course.

CT9 Atomic Force Microscopy (2 of 2) In progress 14:30 - 15:30 Department of Chemistry, Unilever Lecture Theatre

Probe microscopy is a general term for a class of microscopy in which well-defined nanoscale probes are used to interact with a sample in some manner. In this introductory lecture the necessary background principles to understand probe microscopy are explained with reference to Scanning Tunnelling Microscopy and Atomic Force Microscopy in both tapping and contact mode. This will provide the user with the necessary background to make the most of the increasingly well-used Departmental Keysight 5500 multimode system, which is operated and maintained by the Melville Lab. Probe microscopy is of interest to anyone with a need to perform single molecule or surface based studies. Typically anything involving a surface interaction is accessible and the technique is particularly well suited to studying a variety of chemical and electromechanical properties of aggregates with 1-1000 nm dimensions. Recently, the system has been used to study cellulose crystals, amyloid fibres, protein monolayers, thermal properties of polymer films, doped graphite and so on.

Other modes are available on the Keysight system such as pico-trec, electrochemical STM, EFM, KFM, MFM, and LFM and these modes will be described but not explained in detail during the lecture.

Workshop: Using Your Own Data [Places] 16:00 - 18:00 University Information Services, Titan Teaching Room 1, New Museums Site

All the SSRMC's statistics courses are hands-on: you'll learn how to analyse real data, using state-of-the-art statistical analysis packages. But sometimes things aren't so straightforward when it comes to using your own data: the data may not be in Stata format; it may be a funny "shape"; there may be no variable or value labels; or it may be very dirty.

If you have completed your basic stats training and need a helping hand getting started with your own data, this workshop will help you to:

  • Read your own data into Stata
  • Label your variables and values
  • Deal with dirty data

The workshop, based in a computer lab, is entirely devoted to helping students get started with their own data - there is no lecture component. You will need to bring your own data along.

CULP: Spanish Advanced charged (7 of 15) In progress 17:00 - 19:00 Language Centre, Teaching Room 4

The Programme offers general language tuition with a focus on communicative competence.

At an advanced level, the focus shifts slightly towards reading and writing whilst still offering plenty an opportunity for oral communication. The syllabus is more topical and the contents feature many a cultural, historical, political and current affairs theme. While the grammar is analysed within a context, explicit grammar instruction becomes an integral part of the course.

One of the aims of the advanced level courses is also presentation skills as the courses aim to cater for the academic needs (i.e. research, conferences) of the students.

For more detailed information about the course please visit our website.

NB: Advanced courses are official, award-bearing University qualifications.

Please also note that the certificates and transcripts are usually issued in July.
