Categories: Midd Blogosphere

International Student & Scholar Services invites you to learn more about our Friends of International Students (FIS) host program.

  • It’s a friendship program. Contacts between student and family are arranged on your own terms.
  • Most of the students participate in our program, so we will need many new hosts.

  • Monday, September 22, from 12:15 – 1:00 p.m.

The meeting will be held in the Carr Hall Lounge (Carr Hall is at 452 College Street). Please feel free to bring your lunch to the mid-day meeting.

Even if you have been a host in the past, please register for a meeting, both to share your experiences with potential hosts and to learn about the upcoming year of the FIS program!

We hope you will be able to join us. However, if you cannot attend a session and are interested in the program, please let us know.

Middlebury’s Course Hub presented at the New Media Consortium Summer Conference

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

On Thursday, June 19th, Joe Antonioli, Senior Curricular Innovation Specialist, presented Middlebury’s Course Hub during the Idea Lab at thecourse hub award New Media Consortium Summer Conference in Portland, Oregon. The Hub won a “Judges’ Choice” award, and this has developed into discussions with other colleges and universities about the Hub concept and how it has worked for Middlebury College during the past three years.

The Course Hub is the location for faculty to find web-based resources available to them for their courses, and for students to find the resources for all of their classes in a given semester. Last year, 83% of faculty used the Hub to share resources for their courses, and 99% of students took a class that had a resource in the Course Hub.

Many have contributed to the success of the Course Hub, and the panther’s-share of the effort in the building and maintenance of the service has been executed by Adam Franco, Senior Application Developer. The Hub now has 9 possible services that can be accessed through each course’s hub page: Eres, Links, Middlfiles, Moodle, RSS Feeds, SANSSpace, Second Life, Shared Resources, and Syllabus. Congrats to all involved!
