Reconnect

Workshops for Undergraduate Faculty and Practitioners

 

Reconnect is a long-running program at DIMACS that features summer workshops on a chosen topical theme.

Reconnect workshops are intended to reengage faculty teaching undergraduates with the mathematical sciences research enterprise by introducing them to current research topics that are relevant for classroom presentation. They also offer an opportunity to researchers in government or industry to learn about recent techniques. Participants also acquire materials and gain ideas for seminar presentations and for undergraduate research projects and have the opportunity to network with people from a variety of backgrounds.

Topics are presented in a week-long series of lectures and activities led by leading experts in the field. Participants are involved in both research activities and in writing materials useful in the classroom or to share with their colleagues, with the possibility of ultimately preparing these materials for publication as a research paper or an educational module.

In earlier years, there were sometimes multiple Reconnect workshops in a year, but we currently aim to organize one Reconnect each summer, typically in June. The location for Reconnect also changes each summer, and it is often hosted at institutions of past participants.

Often Reconnect workshops are associated with our homeland security center, CCICADA, or one of our themed programs.
