CITG 2017-2018 Application Due June 1

The Concordia Intramural Teaching Grant application information is now available for the 2017-2018 academic year.  Applications are due June 1, 2017.

Full-time faculty members at Mequon or Ann Arbor may submit applications for an innovative teaching project connected to a face-to-face or blended course they are scheduled to teach in the 2017-2018 academic year.

Funding supports the development, demonstration and evaluation of innovation in a particular course which is over and above normal teaching expectations. Examples might include a service learning project, developing a problem-based learning approach in a course, strategies to support measurement of student learning for a Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) project, or a project that demonstrates the value of high-impact practices or the Concordia Principles for Good Practice in Teaching and Learning.

This grant is administered by the Director of the Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching (CELT),  Elizabeth Evans who can be reached at 262 243 4283 or Elizabeth.evans@cuw.

Mathematica Hands-On Training Seminar

Mathematica Hands-On Training Seminar

Tuesday November 10, 1-3pm on Pharmacy 149

Stay the entire time, or drop in for part of the time.

Click here to register.

Seminar presented by Neil Andrews from Wolfram, the makers of Mathematica. This will be an introduction to the software and hands-on help. Concordia University has purchased a site license. All faculty and students can download and activate the software for free, but it may be especially helpful for those in the math or sciences areas.

Downloading and installing Mathematica is easy through the Wolfram user portal (https://user.wolfram.com/portal/login.html).  You need to create a Wolfram account.  You can then download Mathematica and request an activation key.  Anyone with a @cuw.edu or @cuaa.edu email should have no trouble obtaining an activation key.

Here is a link to a 6 minute overview of Mathematica: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z0QPUemRnPU

The session will be recording for those who cannot attend.

Panopto: How to move recordings from a folder that is scheduled for deletion

Due to the high utilization of Panopto, academic recordings will need to be archived after three semesters. Folders that are four semesters or older will be deleted from the Panopto server after each semester.  An example is a folder with a term code of 201410 (Fall 2013) will be removed from Panopto at the start of the 201610 (Fall 2015) term. There are many folders that are unlabeled, these will be removed as well if they are more than four semesters old.

If your current classes require videos from older terms it will be the responsibility of the folder owner to move the recordings from those folder slated for deletion. If you share a folder with another faculty member, please work together to keep only recordings you need. Instructions for moving videos to a recent folder can be found here.

If you have any questions about videos falling under the policy stated above, please feel free to email Rob Erbes at robert.erbes@cuw.edu.
