Dear Colleagues,

Another first Friday of the month is upon us. I hope you can join us for the May 6th DOLCE: Discussing Online Learning and Collaborative Education. We will meet in 1310 Surge III at noon on Friday, May 6th.

Kate Meley of the UC Davis Bookstore will speak about Inclusive Access: Affordable Digital Content Delivery.

UC Davis Stores has implemented an award-winning, innovative program to deliver digital content at low prices. Inclusive Access helps the bookstore prioritize affordability, access, and student success. In addition, the bookstore will be piloting two adoption software programs that offer faculty low-cost adoption choices, including when available, preferred digital options.

Kato Meley is the UC Davis Stores Assistant Director for Course Materials. The former chair of the California Association of College Stores (CACS) Course Materials Committee, Meley will assume the presidency of CACS in 2018-2019.

In addition, at DOLCE this month Instructional Designer Cheryl Diermyer will preview a new and enormously helpful resource that will be launched later this spring: The EdTech Commons. This project is a joint endeavor between the Center for Educational Effectiveness and Academic Technology Services.

Finally, Instructional Technologist Steve Faith will tell the story of how he and others have helped one particular college at UC Davis inform faculty about our move to Canvas. Find out more at

I hope you can join on May 6th!
