Fall Tech Talks, Digital Scholarship and Technology Events Calendar, Edu-Tech/Moodle Office Hours

Posted September 7th, 2016 at 2:13 pm.


The Tuesday Tech Talk series will resume Oct 11 at 4-5pm in Quita Woodward Room, with “What’s New in Digital Scholarship and Pedagogy?”

We’ve had a lot of new additions to the LITS team since May, including a Digital Scholarship Specialist, Alicia Peaker; an Educational Technology Specialist, Beth Seltzer; and two new Mellon Digital Curriculum Assistants, Melanie Bahti ’16 and Palak Bhandari ’16. Come meet them, learn about their scholarly and pedagogical interests, and about new programs, resources, and opportunities available to faculty, students and staff who are interested in digitally-enabled scholarship and teaching. Snacks will be provided!

Nov 1: Building Digital Competencies into the Curriculum through Online Computational Skills Modules

Liz McCormack, Mark Matlin and Doug Blank share experiences and findings from the TIDES project to develop and use a series of online, instructional modules to help physics majors build skills and understanding of computational methods.

Nov 29: What Could Virtual Reality Do for Your Students’ Learning?

Join us for a sneak preview of soon-to-be-released virtual reality hardware! We’ll have demo models with some pre-loaded 3D models and communications tools for attendees to experiment with and we’ll be brainstorming about whether and how virtual reality could enhance teaching and learning.

Click on an event for more details and to register (where applicable). Registration is encouraged, but not necessary (unless otherwise indicated) as it helps us plan for catering, space, etc. and communicate any last-minute changes. You will also get a confirmation email with a meeting invite attachment that you can add to your calendar.


This semester we will be holding weekly, drop-in office hours for help with Moodle and educational technology related projects, including but not limited to designing digital assignments, creating online quizzes, hosting webinars or Skyping remote speakers into a class, using digital technologies to streamline course housekeeping (e.g., sign-ups, communication and notification, surveys, etc.). All sizes of queries (from small questions to big project), stages of development (from inchoate idea to troubleshooting), and levels of expertise (absolute beginner to seasoned expert) are welcome. And, if you haven’t seen the new Canaday computer classroom, this is a good excuse to drop by!
