Google Classroom Workshop and Help Session: 1/8

Posted on December 10, 2018 | Filed under Events

All educators are invited to a Google Classroom workshop from 11 a.m. until noon on Tuesday, January 8, in the Pelletier Collaboratory. (This is a repeat of the Teaching with Technology/Teaching Tidbits workshop that took place on Monday, December 3.) Rachel Weir will demonstrate how Google Classroom (part of G Suite for Education) can be used to: assign, collect, and grade classwork; communicate with students; post course materials, and much more. A laptop or smartphone will enable you to participate in the demonstration but these are not required for attendance. Refreshments will be available at 10:45 a.m. and lunch will be provided to participants in the Collaboratory from noon until 1 p.m. To RSVP for the workshop or the help session, please use this link. For educators who are considering using Classroom for spring classes, a drop-in help session will take place from 1 to 3 p.m. on Tuesday, January 8. Rachel Weir and Helen McCullough will be available during this time to answer questions about Classroom and to assist with setting up classes on Classroom. Location to be announced.

Success at Allegheny? What First Year Students Discovered: 12/18

Posted on December 9, 2018 | Filed under Events

Want to talk about what it takes to succeed at Allegheny? Struggling as a first-year or sophomore student? Interested in learning more about effective studying, time management, or self-care strategies? Join us on Tuesday, December 18, from 7 to 8 p.m. in the Gateway of the Pelletier Library as students from the two FS101 sections for Access Allegheny present posters about how to “thrive” at Allegheny College. For their final assignment, the students were asked to research a challenge/issue that students transitioning to college might face and to develop recommendations or suggestions for meeting that challenge. This poster session is unique because the students have gotten a chance to contribute to research that is so often written about them. Come see what they discovered and help us recognize their work.
