SESSION DESCRIPTIONS

9:00-9:50

D2L 10.1 Upgrade (MC 218)
Facilitators: Greg Jorgensen, Sara Grachek

D2L was upgraded to version 10.1 at the end of May, 2013. This session will highlight changes to the D2L interface, most notably in the content, user progress, and discussion tools.

10:00-10:50

LinkedIn: Social Media & Teaching (MC 207)
Facilitators: Andy Ditlevson, Plamen Miltenoff, Tom Hergert

With the advent of Web 2.0 and its prominent products, such as Facebook and Twitter, other prominent social networking applications such as LinkedIn, can be a major professional asset for students and professionals alike.

LinkedIn, the social networking tool for professional activities. remains underused by instructors and is still in the periphery of the learning and teaching process.

We’ll discuss how LinkedIn can be used effectively as a teaching tool and share examples regarding how LinkedIn can increase learning, class participation, and professional presence.

Andy Ditlevson will share very practical approaches to improve your students’ chances to achieve professional success using LinkedIn, and we will all share our experiences and perspectives on its use, professionally and in class settings.

10:00-10:50

Library Technologies for Teaching and Research (MC 218)
Facilitator: Melissa Prescott

This session will provide participants an opportunity to explore the new resources and technologies available through the Library website. The new Research Guides system provides expanded options for librarians to customize web pages for individual courses. A new Library Search database allows researchers to search multiple databases at once. The Repository provides an opportunity to share your research and publications widely while preserving the scholarly and cultural record at St. Cloud State University. There will be time at the end of the session to focus on individual questions and resources for particular disciplines.

10:00-11:50

Teaching & Learning with YouTube (MC 206)
Facilitator: Matt Barton

YouTube is a lot more than a repository for cat videos. This presentation will walk you though the basics of integrating YouTube into your classrooms, from simply integrating and adding existing videos, using the comments and response features, and, ultimately, producing your own videos.

11:00-11:50

Library Games: A Service Learning Project at the SCSU Library (MC 207)
Facilitator: Keith Christianson

The advent of the Internet changed our daily content from textual to more multimedia. Learning and Teaching are becoming increasingly multimedia and interactive. Generating multimedia and interactive content are becoming less exclusive and more in the hands of both students and instructors. With the proliferation of mobile devices, multimedia and interactive content can be delivered right on the spot.

Join us in perusing through image-altering applications for mobile devices (e.g. Adobe Ideas) and video-editing applications for tablets and mobile devices (e.g. Avid Studio and Splice) to brainstorm about the opportunity to create engaging and student-related content in the classroom.

11:00-11:50

Collect, Organize, Share, Connect: Ref Works, Zotero, Good Reads, LibraryThing (MC 218)
Facilitators: Rachel Wexelbaum, Plamen Miltenoff

With a burgeoning amount of information, collecting resources for learning, and respectively teaching has become an overwhelming process. Organizing the amount of information to teach with, so we can present it to students and assist them learning it has been an issue since the advent of the Internet. In addition, different forms, types and formats of how information is stored and disseminated poses further difficulties. While D2L and similar LRS resources (e.g. RefWorks) deliver options for collection and management of information, they fall behind the times of Web 2.0 and collaborative and creative practices established by the existence of Web 2.0.

In this short session, we will present you with solutions how to collect, sort and disseminate information for your own teaching purposes, for collaboration with colleagues across our field of expertise, and for collaboration with our students.

1:00-1:50

Tech Tools: Leap Motion / iPevo Camera (MC 206)
Facilitators: Greg Jorgensen, Sara Grachek

Leap motion controller senses how you move your hands and allows you to interact with your computer in a new way. You can point, wave, reach, grab, pick things up and more. The iPevo camera is a small, portable, and inexpensive camera you can use for teaching, presentations, distance learning and video communications. We will demo both tech tools and have a short discussion of how these might be used for teaching and learning.

1:00-1:50

Cool Stuff You Can Do With a Classroom Response System (“Clickers”) (MC 207)
Facilitators: Joe Melcher, Tracy Ore

Classroom responses systems have evolved to the point where they are highly robust and offer a variety of uses. For 5+ years I have used classroom responses systems for taking attendance; administering quizzes; conducting polls, doing demonstrations, getting student feedback on lectures, testing comprehension of lecture material. I will share some experiences and tips for effectively using clickers in the classroom.

2:00-2:50

Media Production Tools Available for Checkout (MC 206)
Facilitator: Tom Hergert

There is a wealth of media production tools and opportunities available in the SCSU Library. Still and video cameras, audio recorders, and computer applications are there for faculty, staff, and students. Many instructors are already using these resources in class and for innovative assignments and assessment. We’ll do an overview of available hardware and software and discuss how they can be incorporated into learning and teaching. We’ll outline some options for design and support of these activities.

Bring your ideas, perspectives, experiences, and questions. We’ll work together to make good choices to enhance your courses and your students’ learning.

2:00-2:50
