Dear Colleagues,

I hope you can join us for the April 1 DOLCE: Discussing Online Learning and Collaborative Education. We will meet in 1310 Surge III at noon on Friday, April 1.

Dr. Kevin C. Miller will speak first on “The Archives & Institutional Assets Program: Enhancing the Impact of UC Davis Scholarship (and Scholars).”

All of us are consumers and producers of knowledge and research, and while we are primarily concerned with the impact of our research on the world, someday we or our heirs may also be concerned with the impact of our research on our garages and spare bedrooms. Among other opportunities and concerns, Dr. Miller will help us consider how best approach and share our personal academic archives.

Kevin C. Miller is an expert in confronting academic archives in the digital age. He holds a PhD in ethnomusicology and a master’s degree in library and information studies, both from the University of California, Los Angeles. His research interests (as an ethnomusicologist) include the music-cultures of the Pacific and the South Asian diaspora. As an archivist, he is primarily interested in digital preservation and the evolving scholarly record. Formerly Librarian for Digital Curation and Publication at Pepperdine University in Malibu, CA from 2010 to 2015, Miller is currently leading the new Archives & Institutional Assets Program as University Archivist at UC Davis.

In the second half of the hour, we will discuss instructional design, and why you should want to consult with one before taking on a new or re-visioned teaching project. We will also hear from an expert on Canvas, the new learning management system and SmartSite replacement that we will all get to start using this fall, 2016. To find out more about Canvas, please visit http://movetocanvas.ucdavis.edu.

Please join us at noon on April 1 in 1310 Surge III, also known as The Grove.
