Wanted: New batch of talkative toddlers for language lab

Thursday, February 21st, 2013

Language Learning LabUW-Green Bay’s Language Learning Lab is once again looking for local parents interested in having their children ages 18 months through 4 years participate in a major study of toddlers’ skill and language development.

Prof. Jennifer Lanter of Human Development is asking alumni, University employees and returning adult students with young children to consider volunteering for a visit. Participation is easy, with only a single 30- to 45-minute session in which the parent gently guides his or her child through a few simple play exercises. Participants (the children, anyway) get a free book or toy as a parting gift. Lanter and/or one of her student research assistants will observe.

If you have a child between the ages of 1 and 4 and a willingness to play games for science, contact Lanter at MAC Hall C322; email Lanterj@uwgb.ed, or sign up online at the project website, http://www.uwgb.edu/learnlab.

Thursday, September 20th, 2012

UW-Green Bay is launching a new social media engagement program where alumni, students and anyone interested in the University can show their support by engaging on social networks and earning rewards through our new Phoenix Phanatics Rewards program.

Developed in partnership with Lodestone Sports, the leader in social media programs for college sports, fans receive points for participating in social media activities such as ‘liking’ Facebook posts, commenting, sharing, tweeting hashtags, re-tweeting, watching a YouTube video, checking in on Foursquare or Facebook and more.

The UWGB Alums Facebook Page is one of these pages!

The program tracks overall point leaders from all participating UW-Green Bay departments. In addition, fans can sign up for special promotions, coupons or become the Fan of the Week on Facebook pages. This will allow UW-Green Bay to create a unique experience and promotion for each department, drive awareness and reward our fans. There will be grand prizes, giveaways and special fan experiences.

This is just the beginning as participating UW-Green Bay departments will be adding new social platforms and additional ways to earn points and engage. So check it out and start earning rewards today!  What a fun and easy way to stay connected to your alma mater!
