Join us for this term’s series of [un]Workshops:
10/17 (Tue) – 3-4p – Leighton 426
Title: Social Reading and Notetaking: An Overview of Web Annotation Tools
Blurb: A foundational activity for many courses is the critical reading of texts. This [un]workshop will demo and discuss how annotation of online texts (newspaper articles, scholarly pieces, pop culture artifacts) can help students better understand how scholars read, analyze, and synthesize different kinds of written materials. Please bring your laptop if you would like to follow along with the demonstration of Hypothes.is and PRISM.
10/26 (Thu) – 3-4p – LDC 104
Title: Oral feedback in Language Lesson
Blurb: Providing contextualized feedback to students on their foreign language production is well-known to be a big contributor to student success. This [un]workshop will demonstrate Language Lesson, a tool designed to facilitate student recording of speaking exercises, and to allow instructors to respond by placing oral feedback directly into the recordings. Language Lesson is currently being piloted with several language classes this term, but has the potential to be used with audio recording exercises in any discipline.
11/02 (Thu)- 12-1p – LDC 104
Title: GIS, Spatial Analysis and You: Mapping your research data!
Blurb: Geographic Information Systems (GIS) have become important tools within research, but can also give your datasets critical spatial contexts. This [un]workshop will give a basic introduction to GIS and spatial analysis, discussing what is possible with spatial databases for both traditional and non-traditional contexts.
