Canvas Is Coming

Starting in Fall 2016, Middlebury will adopt Canvas for use across the institution—the undergraduate College, the Institute in Monterey, the summer Language Schools, the Bread Loaf School of English, and the Schools Abroad. And while the institution’s Moodle instance will remain intact until January, for most people accustomed to using Moodle, the change may come with a few hard turns. And even for those new to using any learning management system, the affordances of Canvas may go undetected. Additionally, the speed at which teachers and students must become familiar with a new platform can mean we don’t take full advantage of what a new digital tool offers.

Fortunately, the Office of Digital Learning is here to offer some pedagogical support for new and continuing Canvas users. Take a look at their blog post about some of the ways Canvas can be a great online and classroom tool.

The workshop for students covers 1) The admissions process:  The student’s responsibilities in owning and directing the admissions process and, 2) an admissions office’s responsibility in owning and directing the admissions process.

The workshop for parents addresses 1) How to be a supportive and effective parent throughout the admissions process.  (Rick Hazelton, Director of College Advising at Hotchkiss and Allison Stebe – Guidance Counselor at MUHS will be joining the parent panel), and 2) a presentation and discussion of case studies of college applications.

The student and parent workshops will be run simultaneously.

In separate sessions there will be a financial aid overview as well as a hands-on session reviewing the common application process.

Following the final presentation, individual afternoon appointments can be scheduled with Student Financial Services.

In addition, for any students who are interested specifically in Middlebury College, a group information session will be conducted at 1:30 P.M. and campus tours will be offered at 2:30 P.M.

Intellectual Property Open Meeting

The Intellectual Property Working Group (IPWG) will host an open meeting on Wednesday, April 6, at 4pm in Bicentennial Hall 220. During this meeting, members of the IPWG will be sharing guiding principles for the development of an IP policy for Middlebury and will invite attendees to share their experiences or their questions about IP.

Middlebury faculty, staff, and students are welcome to attend this meeting. 

The IPWG will be offering additional open meetings in Vermont and in Monterey during the month of April to share and collect feedback on a draft of an Intellectual Property policy. The April 6 meeting will not offer a draft of the policy, but will be more generally focused on Intellectual Property questions and issues.

2016 Sophomore Conference

Preparation and Possibilities, Middlebury’s 2nd annual Sophomore Conference will be held Friday January 15 and Saturday January 16. The conference asks sophomores to think about the following question:  You’ve chosen your major, but have you thought about where it might take you? In addition to a keynote address, students will be able to attend panels specific to their major where they will get the opportunity to listen to alumni reflect on their careers.

The feedback that we got from students who attended last years conference was overwhelmingly positive, and we are asking faculty and staff to encourage both first year and sophomore students to attend. Additional information regarding the conference and registration can be found here: http://www.middlebury.edu/studentlife/cci/exploration/sophomore-conference

And for anyone unable to attend, but still wanting to watch the keynote address, they can live stream it here: http://go.middlebury.edu/stream
