A display of academic inquiry

By Audriannah Horne;

Faculty and staff at the University of Washington Bothell devote themselves to academic inquiry in a multitude of ways. Each year in the fall, the University of Washington Bothell and Cascadia College Campus Library showcases the results of their work in a display open to all.

“It's always exciting to put together the Faculty & Staff Publications Display each year,” said Hannah Mendro, materials processing lead. “It’s an opportunity for library staff to get an update on what researchers on our campus have been working on over the past year and to tap into some of the current discourses in various subjects.

“From popular and timely articles to in-depth scientific papers and poetry,” she said, “we can see where members of our campus are involved in ongoing conversations with various communities — academic, non-academic and artistic alike.”

The library display is diverse in a variety of ways, including academic fields, array of topics and materials used in imparting the research and pedagogy. Common to all is the theme of inquiry that advances the limits of knowledge production in a way that is accessible to all learners.

Both Dr. Stephen Jones, associate professor in the School of Business, and Dr. Daniel Cavanaugh, assistant teaching professor in the School of Nursing & Health Studies, focus on ways to evolve interpersonal development. Jones co-authored “Things Are Not Always What They Seem: The Origins and Evolution of Intragroup Conflict,” an article that reevaluates the way scholars have historically conceptualized and measured intragroup conflict at the team level. Cavanaugh published “Developing and Initially Validating the Youth Mental Health Literacy Scale for Ages 11-14” both to destigmatize views of mental illness and to encourage youth in crisis to seek help.

A book co-authored by Dr. Antony Smith, assistant professor in the School of Educational Studies, considers a new way to teach children to read: through a mathematical lens. “Mathematizing Children’s Literature: Sparking Connections, Joy and Wonder through Read-Alouds and Discussion” asks the question, “How might mathematizing children's literature give learners space to ask their own questions and make connections between stories, their lives and the world around them?”

Dr. Salwa A-Noori, associate professor in the School of STEM, similarly considers new ways of teaching. Co-author of “An Active Learning Workshop to Teach Active Learning Strategies,” she engaged a diverse pool of postdoctoral scholars at the University of Washington and affiliate institutions in a closely mentored apprenticeship to learn how to teach scientifically with inclusive, demonstrably effective, student-centered pedagogies.

One publication featured in this year’s display crosses international borders. In “Vehicles of Decolonization: Public Transit in the Palestinian West Bank (Critical Race, Indigeneity, and Relationality),” Dr. Maryam Griffin, assistant professor in the School of Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences, published her results from a year of fieldwork. Through the book, she demonstrates that the politics of mobility are shaped by ongoing settler colonialism and Indigenous struggle.

The library display is a bit like a snapshot — or series of snapshots — of a particular time and set of conversations amoung faculty.

“Within the classroom space, the main focus tends to be teaching and learning, as it should be,” said Mendro. “But since members of both campuses are also working on their own scholarship, the display allows us to showcase some of that work for our community to see the breadth and depth of research occurring at UW Bothell and Cascadia College — some also conducted in collaboration with students.”

All are welcome to visit the library to see the works or to review them virtually at UW Bothell/CC Faculty and Staff Publications. The website also features an archive of work from previous years.
