Freshman Research Skills
Thursday, September 12, 9:00-10:00 AM
Haines Room, Shain Library
Enjoy breakfast while learning more about your freshmen students and their approach to the research process. For the past five years the library has been administering a survey to incoming freshmen to collect information on students’ research experiences and assess their research skills. During this workshop we will share some of the interesting results and trends we’ve seen, discuss our efforts to incorporate these findings into our work with students, and how you might use this information to construct assignments that help them grow as researchers.

Students as Creators: Incorporating Video Projects
Tuesday, September 24, 2:30-3:30 PM
Haines Room, Shain Library
Well-designed video assignments provide a rich learning environment and require students to fully engage with course material, apply it by creating something new – all while strengthening communication skills in multiple media. This workshop will focus on the benefits and drawbacks of video assignments, how to design them, and will outline the technology support available to students and faculty. Sample projects will be presented, and there will be ample time for discussion and questions. Coffee, tea, and dessert will be served.
