Playing IPA uno went very well yesterday.
I like this game a lot because their mistakes are out in the open. We used to play bingo to help students learn the international phonetic alphabet. However, if they make a mistake, there is no immediate feedback. If they Mark a tile that I didn't actually say then they will figure it out when they call bingo. However, if they miss a tile that I did say then they may never find out they made a mistake.
IPA uno has immediate feedback if they error
Scholar Social is a microblogging platform for researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.
We strive to be a safe space for queer people and other minorities, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.

Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.
Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to @firstname.lastname@example.org and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
