The schedule for the Fall 2012 Bite of Learning series has been finalized. We’ve got an exciting series of presentations lined up this fall. You can see the entire schedule on the Bite of Learning web site at http://www.hmc.edu/bol, but here’s a sneak preview. You can look forward to sessions on the use of Piazza to answer student questions by Chris Stone in the CS department, an introduction to the field of Digital Humanities by Jacqueline Wernimont from Scripps, and exploring your musical creativity with software called Impro-Visor by Bob Keller in CS. The ETMS staff will also be presenting this Fall. Jeho Park will talk about the XSEDE high performance computing resource. James Sadler will talk about our experiments with lecture capture software and hardware this past year, and I’ll be demonstrating a Google Apps tool called Appointment Slots for making office hours appointments. However, I expect our most popular presentation this semester will be a presentation by Matt Construction on using computer modeling in building construction. I’ve been promised a 3-D fly-through of the new TLB building. So keep your eye out for our Bite of Learning announcements and hope to see you there!
We’ve also got a brand new Facebook page for the series at http://www.facebook.com/ABiteOfLearning/. We’ll be posting announcements there as well as photos and videos. We’re also hoping to be able to continue some of the great discussions that we have at the end of our presentations there. So please “Like” us on Facebook!
