DOLCE this Friday: pedagogical principles, NB, and Aggie Feed

We hope you’ll join us this Friday (December 6) at 12pm in 1310 Surge III for the final DOLCE (Discussing Online Learning and Collaborative Education) meeting of the calendar year. We’re excited that David Lazar of Columbia College Chicago will give a presentation on Pedagogical Principles in Practice. David is a remarkable academic who created the undergraduate and Ph.D. programs in Nonfiction Writing at Ohio University, and who has seen five of his essays appear in the yearly Best American Essays anthologies.

Following Professor Lazar we will be joined by Philip Matern, a graduate student in Neuroscience, Physiology, & Behavior. Philip will discuss and demonstrate NB, an annotation tool that allows for collaborative annotation, discussion, and note taking.

Finally, Alex Alfieri (Information and Educational Technology) will show us the Aggie Feed, which creates an activity stream of Davis events and will provide a helpful portal for students and others using campus networks and databases.

We will leave one chair empty for you. Happy holidays!

P.S. For those of you who can’t make Professor Lazar’s teaching-centric comments this coming Friday at noon, David will also be giving a reading Thursday / tomorrow evening at 8 at the John Natsoulas Gallery, 521 1st Street in Davis. All are welcome.
