Spring 2011 A Bite of Learning Series

The Spring 2011 A Bite of Learning series will be starting up next week on Tuesday, February 8th at 12:15-1:00 in the Hoch Shanahan Aviation Room. We’ve got a great line up for A Bite of Learning this spring. At the first session next week I’ll be talking about Sakai 3, also known as the Sakai Open Academic Environment (OAE). This is a brand new version of Sakai that is under development by the Sakai community. I’ll talk about some of the concepts underlying the new design and do a demo on the Sakai 3 sandbox site. Other topics this spring include Prof. Katherine Maloney and Eric Ditwiler talking about their experiences using the iClickers for assessment purposes and Prof. Jeff Groves, Prof. Bob Borrelli and Prof. Bill Alves presenting the projects that were funded by our Faculty Technology Innovation grants last summer. Sam Kome from Honnold/Mudd Library will speak about Sherlock Search and other new services at the Library and Prof. Vatche Sahakian will talk about his experiences with lecture capture. We also have a special presentation by Prof. Tim Tangherlini from UCLA, who will present on Tools & Techniques for Automated Literary Analysis.
