Dear Faculty ,
We are excited to announce the DOLCE this upcoming Friday, November 2nd will feature a wide-range of topics including open textbooks, Canvas updates, and iClicker.
Delmar Larsen, Associate Professor of Chemistry and ChemWiki pioneer, will share updates on the international free textbook movement that he spearheaded at UC Davis. His talk, “Free the Textbooks with Libre Text” will likely inspire us to explore opportunities for sharing educational materials profitably, so to speak, and for reducing financial barriers students face as they pursue their degrees.
Todd Van Zandt, Learning Management System Program Manager at Academic Technology Services, will discuss Canvas updates in his talk “Coming Soon to a Canvas Near You.” As we all use Canvas to facilitate instruction in a digital learning environment, understanding updates that impact our daily instruction is no doubt essential.
Finally, Dr. Fernando Socorro, instructional technologist for Academic Technology Services, will join Justin Navarro, iClicker representative, to discuss UC Davis and iClicker personal response system updates.
Please join us at this DOLCE this Friday, November 2nd at noon in 1310 Surge III/The Grove.
