If you are still on campus and need some SmartSite or final grade submission help from our Instructional Technologists (Steve Faith and Fernando Socorro), please drop by their current offices at 50 Hutchison, found downstairs in the southeast corner of the building in the center of campus. While you are there, Steve and Fernando could also show you our mini-studio, perfect for filming short lectures or demonstrations to share with students.
Our faculty panels will return on April 1st DOLCE meeting that will feature a presentation by Dr. Kevin Miller. Miller was Librarian for Digital Curation and Publication at Pepperdine University from 2010 to 2015, and is currently leading the Archives & Institutional Assets Program as the UC Davis University Archivist.
Curious about the new learning management system that we will adopt this fall? If you have any free time over our spring break, you are encouraged to visit the spring update at the UC Davis “Move to Canvas” page: http://movetocanvas.ucdavis.edu. If you would like to start browsing the guides, trainings, and documentation provided by Instructure, the company behind Canvas, please find them at https://community.canvaslms.com/welcome.
Enjoy the break, and I look forward to seeing you at one of our events in the spring (held on the first and third Friday of every month during the school year).
