Copyright in the Classroom
Tuesday, April 2, 1:10 - 2:30 p.m.
“Have you ever wondered what “Fair Use” really means? In this workshop, representatives from the University Library and University Counsel will use real-life scenarios to help you navigate topics such as Fair Use, the TEACH Act, copyright support on campus, and more! The workshop will focus on topics that are relevant to instructors, but it will be useful for anyone with questions about copyright on campus.”
Escape from Spreadsheet Hell
Wednesday, April 3, 3:30 - 4:30 p.m.
Have you ever felt like Excel is working against you instead of with you? This workshop will cover best practices for set-up and formatting, the differences between spreadsheet file types, and tips for avoiding common pit-falls in Excel and similar programs. There’s no escaping spreadsheets but you can escape spreadsheet hell! TL;DR – we’ll teach you how to create spreadsheets optimized for reuse by you and others. Your future self will thank you.
Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon: Digital Humanities in Practice
Wednesday, April 10, 1:10 - 2 p.m.
Digital Humanities has been one of the most ubiquitous phrases on university campuses for a number of years. This workshop will put a practical and pedagogical face to the phrase, by introducing the concept of a Wikipedia “Edit-a-Thon.” Attendees will learn how to turn Wikipedia editing (updating as well as creating entries) into a valuable teaching tool in the humanities.
