CITL: Rethinking Technology’s Role in Transforming Higher Education

Date & Time: Thursday, November 2, 3:30 pm to 5:00 pm

Presenters: Dr. MJ Bishop

Audience: Community Members, Faculty, Staff, Students, Undergraduate Students, Graduate Students

Advances in available instructional technologies have many excited about the possibility that we may soon break free of the immutable "iron triangle" that has prevented higher education from increasing access, affordability, and quality simultaneously. But while we have seen advances in access and affordability, the 100-year history of technology use in education paints a rather bleak picture of the extent to which technology, in-and- of-itself, can lead to the kind of increases in learning outcomes that we seek.  This presentation traces the many lessons learned from that history and explores how changing the way we view technology's role might finally help us achieve meaningful and sustainable change.

Dr. MJ Bishop directs the University System of Maryland's William E. Kirwan Center for Academic Innovation, which was established in 2013 to enhance USM's position as a national leader in higher education transformation. The Kirwan Center conducts research on best practices, disseminates findings, and supports the system's institutions as they develop innovative academic programs.  Prior to USM, Bishop was Associate Professor of Instructional Design and Technology at Lehigh University and Director of the College of Education's Teaching, Learning, and Technology Program. Author of numerous peer-reviewed publications, her research explores how instructional media might be designed and used more effectively to improve learning.  She has received several awards for her research and innovative teaching, including Lehigh's prestigious Stabler Award, conferred by students to faculty who have mentored them to "excellence in their chosen field" as well as "excellence as human beings and leaders of society."

CITL: Open Access: Make OA Work for You

Date & Time: Friday, October 27, 10:00 am

Location: Linderman 302

Presenters: Carrie Baldwin-SoRelle, Social Sciences and Scholarly Communications Librarian

Audience: Faculty, Staff, Graduate Students

Whether required by funding agencies or encouraged for socially responsible community engagement, Open Access publishing is increasingly part of the academic landscape. Make the most of it with our primer on grant compliance, open data, reputable versus predatory publishers, and the preprint/postprint options.  

CITL/MDHI: Beginning Scalar Workshop

Date & Time: Friday, October 20, 10:00 am to 12:00 pm

Location: Linderman 302

Presenters: Jason Slipp, Instructional Technology

Audience: Faculty, Staff, Graduate Students

This entry-level workshop provides an overview of the Scalar platform available at Lehigh.  Scalar is an authoring and publishing platform designed to make it easy for authors to create long-form, born-digital scholarship online.  Scalar enables users to assemble media from multiple sources and juxtapose them with their own writing in a variety of ways.  This workshop is for beginners with little or no experience working with Scalar.  We will create a project of your liking by going step-by-step through the process of assembling artifacts, developing your Scalar framework, and publishing your work to the web.  We will also take some time during the workshop to go over best practices and example projects that have been developed by Lehigh faculty, staff, and students.  

(Registration is limited to 18)

In this talk, Adam will narrate how he leverages the technology of the open web to stimulate his students’ learning and personal growth and to catalyze creativity in his classroom. Adam’s course project, which started off with a 15-student class, has grown into a university-wide initiative in which more than 5,000 students, faculty, and staff are given space and tools on the open web to write, build, and share. Learn how this project is providing soft infrastructure for teaching, learning, and, ultimately, creating a domain of one’s own. A longer bio and his organization's website can be found here: http://ou.edu/digitallearning/
