The annual “Applying to College” workshop sponsored by the Admissions Office is scheduled for Friday, June 6, 2014 at McCardell Bicentennial Hall.

2014 Spring Pedagogy Series

Online Identity Part 1 - Tuesday, June 3, 10:30 am – noon  in Wilson Media Lab, LIB 220

With every click, post, tweet, checkout, like, search, digg, friend, tag and other activities we have created a record of our time spent interacting with web sites that are viewable from anywhere in the world. What do our web sites and social media activity say about us? This workshop will explore the meaning that others give to our digital identities, and present some strategies for managing our identities in the digital space. NOTE: Attendees must be comfortable with having their name searched for.

Noon – Lunch served in CTLR, LIB 225

Designing Effective Presentations - Wednesday, June 4, 10:30 am in LIB 230

Presentation software (PowerPoint, Keynote, Prezi) is perhaps the most common technology used in the classroom by both instructors and students.  Yet faculty often feel constrained by the software, and students voice frustration about PowerPoint becoming the focus of a class. In this session, we will discuss ways of making presentations more effective through the stages of preparation, design,and delivery. 

 11:20 – 12:00 pm – Wilson Media Lab & LIB 230

In the second half of this session, we invite you to submit slides from your presentations that you’d like to improve or are dissatisfied with. Shel Sax, Joe Antonioli, and Heather Stafford will be available for individual consultations to help with conceptual and technical issues.  If you are interested, please forward a representative presentation that you’d like to discuss to Shel Sax (sax@middlebury.edu).
