Using Free & Open Tools: A Holistic Selection Process Centered On Digital Literacy, Tim Miller Apr 2019

Using Free & Open Tools: A Holistic Selection Process Centered On Digital Literacy, Tim Miller

Digital Initiatives Symposium

This session will cover free and open tools as well as teaching strategies for creating and implementing digital/web literacy and digital media instruction. The session will also be useful for people looking for free and open tools for their own projects, including how to get started and how to learn necessary new skills. Considerations such as terms of use, privacy, accessibility and licensing can be as or more important than functionality. Additionally, adopting open tools can advance conversations about open licensing which, in turn, can promote the application of creative commons and public domain licenses to appropriate works. Knowing ...


Elementary, My Dear Watson: An Undergraduate Comic Books Course Using Enterprise Ai And Tei, Steven W. Holloway, Brian Flota Apr 2019

Elementary, My Dear Watson: An Undergraduate Comic Books Course Using Enterprise Ai And Tei, Steven W. Holloway, Brian Flota

Digital Initiatives Symposium

Two librarians taught an Honors course at James Madison University titled “Comic Books, Analysis, and Digital Scholarship.” This non-coding-requirement course introduced students to the critical study of comic books by way of DH and online tools like IBM Watson. JMU Libraries has a growing collection of comic books (more than 10,000 single issues) and a commitment to foster DH research, hence rationale for the course. Students were introduced to online annotation platforms and comic-book-extended TEI (Text Encoding Initiative), using spreadsheet entry to code a Golden Age comic book in the public domain. In addition, the students used enterprise AI ...


Building A Community Learning Laboratory Through Digital Initiatives, Sonia Chaidez, Stephanie Carmona Apr 2019

Building A Community Learning Laboratory Through Digital Initiatives, Sonia Chaidez, Stephanie Carmona

Digital Initiatives Symposium

How can digital initiatives help to build a community of life-long learners? It begins with creative collaboration. We developed a partnership between the College Library and the Education Department to launch a learning laboratory that partners adult learners from our neighboring community with our undergraduate students to create authentic learning experiences centered on building digital literacy skills. From photo archives to digital storytelling to creating digital maps- this partnership is helping to build and contribute to digital platforms for the populations that will use them to continue the cycle of life-long teaching and learning. This process also helps to give ...

Metadata And Minerals : A Library – Museum Pilot Project, Christine Baker

Digital Initiatives Symposium

The Arthur Lakes Library and the Geology Museum at Colorado School of Mines (Mines) worked together to explore ways to promote the Museum’s unique collections. A task force formed to conduct a pilot project that involved creating digital access, via Mines Institutional Repository, to a set of the Museum’s mineral specimens from Creede Mining District. The Metadata Librarian collaborated with the Museum Collections Manager throughout this process to establish metadata requirements and workflows. This presentation explains how the pilot project came about and describes the preparation, metadata and workflow development, as well as the collaborative experience and evolution ...

Having A Social Impact: Supporting Social Justice And Open Access Through Digital Initiative Projects, Mark Shelton, Frederick Zarndt, Brian Geiger, Cristela Garcia-Spitz

Digital Initiatives Symposium

Digital infrastructures and tools allow organizations and institutions to create opportunities for projects, information transfer, learning, and platforms for a range of voices. It also creates opportunities that promote open access, social justice, and social impact. Panelists who are directly involved in digital initiative projects that specifically seek to impact society, either by opening up information resources to everyone, or by giving people the digital resources they need to be self-supportive, will talk about their projects and the beliefs that underpin their efforts. From libraries, to online content providers, to digital skills educators, the panel represents a wide range of ...


Multimodal Adventures In Teaching: Individualized Learning, Relationship-Building, And Nurturing A Sense Of Belonging Through Fsd’S Student Life And Writing Centre Videos, Jenna L. Goddard 8197389, Alicia Ashcroft Feb 2019

Multimodal Adventures In Teaching: Individualized Learning, Relationship-Building, And Nurturing A Sense Of Belonging Through Fsd’S Student Life And Writing Centre Videos, Jenna L. Goddard 8197389, Alicia Ashcroft

Teaching Practices Colloquium

The results of the recent Canadian University Survey Consortium (CUSC) survey indicate that, compared to equivalent institutions, TRU students lack a feeling of connection to the campus; thus, growing and nurturing a sense of belonging within our increasingly diverse student body is vital. How does one create or facilitate connection or belonging to places and spaces of learning? Teaching and learning do not always take place in the traditional way within a classroom; in fact, sometimes the best “learning” takes place in unique and unanticipated ways. TRU’s Writer & Storyteller Alicia Ashcroft uses Faculty of Student Development’s Student Life ...

The Adventure Capstone, Iain Stewart-Patterson Dr

Teaching Practices Colloquium

The woodstove crackles and the light from the flames dances across the student’s face as she introduces the first question for the group to address. “How has education got in the way of your learning?” This is not your typical university capstone experience. The Adventure Capstone is the final culminating undergraduate level course and exit point for adventure students in the Bachelor of Tourism Management. It is also available to graduating Adventure students in the Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies. This course is a unique progression point for adventure students about to leave the security of the university environment and ...


Photo-Voice As A Reflexive Method, Nan Stevens Feb 2019

Photo-Voice As A Reflexive Method, Nan Stevens

Teaching Practices Colloquium

Photo-voice is rapidly becoming a popular and accepted research method in the social sciences (Holm, 2008). Developed by Wang and Burris (1994), Photo-voice is a participatory method through which research participants identify and represent their lived experiences and contexts through the use of photo imagery. Reavey and Johnson (2013) claim that visual methods “hand over agency to the participants (p. 302). Participants are provided cameras or electronic devices to document images that resonate for them (consciously or unconsciously). Participants then share verbal associations about the photos in order to communicate feelings, ideas, and information about personal and community relationships, issues ...


Rhetoric At The University Of Chicago, James Beasley Feb 2019

Rhetoric At The University Of Chicago, James Beasley

Showcase of Faculty Scholarly & Creative Activity

From the early 1940's through the 1960's, some of the most important articles in rhetoric and composition were written by University of Chicago faculty, and it was these articles that became the touchstones of rhetorical education in the institutional return to rhetoric in the latter half of the twentieth century. By organizing these articles according to their institutional context, my book, Rhetoric at the University of Chicago, sheds new light on the beginnings of rhetoric and composition and demonstrates the significance of historical context in avoiding the misuse of these articles as foundationalist rhetorical theory.

Formative Asynchonous Feedback For Faculty: A Case Study, Chad Rohrbacher, Jessica Mckee Dr Jan 2019

Formative Asynchonous Feedback For Faculty: A Case Study, Chad Rohrbacher, Jessica Mckee Dr

SoTL Commons Conference

While student evaluations provide a snapshot of feedback for faculty, successful teachers regularly seek feedback from other sources, including their peers. This case study at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University describes a process of instituting a video recording and web-based technology to provide faculty peers and developers opportunity to asynchronously observe, reflect, and comment on peers’ teaching and classroom experience. Additionally, faculty developers were able to view courses on a larger scale and provide directed pedagogical feedback in new ways. This presentation explores the preliminary results including benefits and drawbacks to asynchronous formative feedback for improving teaching.


Gender And The Yale Faculty: A View Of The Data, Emily Stark, Nancy Ruther, Paula Kavathas, Claire Bowern Jan 2019

Gender And The Yale Faculty: A View Of The Data, Emily Stark, Nancy Ruther, Paula Kavathas, Claire Bowern

Yale Day of Data

Every five years, the Women Faculty Forum compiles the demographics of the University’s faculty in a report called “The View.” The findings of The View of 2016-2017 belong in the context of a series of structural changes at Yale over the past five years that contribute to a widespread effort to foster gender equity and to recruit, retain, and support a more diverse faculty.

The 2016-2017 report shows the gains made in university leadership (particularly administrative leadership and Heads of College) by women faculty since 2012 but a stagnation in numbers of URM (under-represented minorities) faculty and women with ...
