Event Image  CTL Teaching Toolkit
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Bloomberg School of Public Health

CTL's Instructional Design Team invites you to join us for the next Teaching Toolkit Workshop: Promoting Learning Through Purposeful Imagery. In this workshop our medical illustrator will join us in leading a discussion on the power, purpose, and clarity of images in lectures and other classroom artifacts. Take-aways include the pedagogical rationale and implications for incorporating images in your course materials; design considerations, including being mindful of the accessibility principles of Universal Design for Instruction (UDI); and pointers on finding image sources whose permissions include appropriate exceptions to copyright protection.


We encourage onsite attendance, but the workshop will also be streamed via Adobe Connect at Recordings will be posted to our Toolkit Events page at a later date. No registration is needed, but mark your calendars now! If you have any questions, please contact or your Instructional Designer.


Rethinking the Public Health Response to the Indirect Effects of War
12:00 PM - 1:20 PM

Bloomberg School of Public Health

There is a fundamental need to understand and confront the epidemiology of the indirect effects of war, those effects due not to direct battlefield injuries but rather the destruction of the necessities of life, including water, food, shelter, and health services.  Despite the substantial technical capability to mitigate these indirect effects, public health strategies have increasingly been hampered by dynamic political and security obstacles.  Of special concern is the growing risk to health personnel and facilities operating in conflict settings.  Together, these concerns demand a reconsideration of public health strategies to assess, prevent and mitigate the indirect effects of war.

Fei Lu “Data assimilation with stochastic model reduction.”
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM


Speaker: Fei Lu, Johns Hopkins University Abstract: In weather and climate prediction, data assimilation combines data with dynamical models to make prediction, using ensemble of solutions to represent the uncertainty. Due to limited computational resources, reduced models are needed and coarse-grid models are often used, and the effects of the subgrid scales are left to be taken into account. A major challenge is to account for the memory effects due to coarse graining while capturing the key statistical-dynamical properties. We propose to use nonlinear autoregression moving average (NARMA) type models to account for the memory effects, and demonstrate by examples that the resulting NARMA type stochastic reduced models can capture the key statistical and dynamical properties and therefore can improve the performance of ensemble prediction in data assimilation. The examples include the Lorenz 96 system (which is a simplified model of the atmosphere) and the Kuramoto-Sivashinsky equation of spatiotemporally chaotic dynamics.
