Now that the crush of the start of classes has eased a bit, we’d like to announce the Fall 2013 schedule for the Bite of Learning Series. A Bite of Learning is an informal series of lunch-time presentations held in the Aviation Room in the Hoch-Shanahan Dining Commons on the HMC Campus. We usually schedule 5 or 6 presentations per semester, with the focus being new or innovative uses of technology in teaching or research. This semester we have an exciting lineup of speakers to announce.
In October we start up with a presentation by Chris Clark from the HMC Engineering department. Prof. Clark will be presenting on “Robotics: Motivation for Learning.” Lindsay Janssen and Prof. Steven Casper from Keck Graduate Institute will talk about their experiences using iRubric for writing assessment.
In November Allegra Swift from the Claremont Colleges Library will talk about Open Access Online Journal Publishing and Scholarship at the Claremont Colleges. Pitzer College’s experiences with online course evaluations is the topic of Joanne Zhang’s presentation on November 19th.
In December Prof. Katherine Van Heuvelen, Kevin Heath (HMC ’16) and Jeho Park (CIS) will talk about using the XSEDE supercomputing resource and on Jeho’s role as XSEDE Campus Champion.
We’re looking forward to a great semester and hope you can join us at A Bite of Learning. The full schedule can be found on the Bite of Learning web site at http://www.hmc.edu/bol.
