ASSETT and the University Libraries are pleased to invite you to join the Cultivating Students’ Digital Identity and Ownership SIG. As educators, we strive to build students’ capacity to draw meaning from and contribute to the rich, complex, and global information landscapes in which we reside. Here we will explore information literacy and open pedagogy as methods for approaching this goal. Led by Amanda McAndrew and Caroline Sinkinson, we will discuss ways to engage students in critically analyzing how their digital identities are created, managed and represented. We will meet four times throughout the fall semester. Space is limited so please RSVP to express interest and provide availability by September 24, 2017

This SIG is designed to support and create a community for newly hired faculty who are teaching undergraduate classes for the College of Arts & Sciences. Participants will meet four times throughout the fall semester and discuss topics such as active learning, technology integration, and assessing the learning impact of students. ASSETT staff will also help you navigate the campus and help you find resources. They look forward to meeting and working with you! If you’re interested in participating, please RSVP by September 24, 2017. For more information, please email or call our office at x53813. 

ASSETT invites applications to participate in our first ever Special Interest Group (SIG). A SIG is a community of learners exploring themes in teaching, learning and technology. This SIG will explore ways of Encouraging and Developing Students’ Critical Thinking Skills. We will engage in some common readings, discussions and brainstorming of ideas of how we might encourage undergraduate students to engage in deep and critical thinking during in class time and out of class time. SIGs will meet approximately 4 times.
