Using EndNote to create bibliographies -- this session will provide a demonstration of and basic instruction for using EndNote, an online citation management system provided by the RIT Libraries at the Wallace Center. EndNote allows users to create formatted bibliographies in many citation styles, including APA and MLA, and output those bibliographies to word processing programs such as Microsoft Word. All faculty, staff and students are welcome to attend this workshop.

Attendees may want to familiarize themselves with the product slightly before this demonstration. Reviewing this InfoGuide would provide a great foundation allowing for greater understanding during this in-person session.

Attendees who use laptops are encouraged to bring them to the session, so that they can install EndNote plugins for web browsers and word processors.

Rachel Silvestrini will give an overview of her recent investigations into learning analytics in myCourses. Specifically she used data collected from (grades and student access of material) mycourses in conjunction with demographic and prerequisite data to generate mathematical models that could be used to predict student success in her classes. Some models created provided useful information regarding student behavior and performance. There are not generalizable results, but the methods are generalizable can could be useful for instructors. This work was supported by a Provost’s Learning Innovation Grant.

“Feedback is the breakfast of champions.” - Ken Blanchard

Feedback can help you develop professionally and personally. RIT has partnered with the SUNY Leadership Institute (sunyli.suny.edu) to offer a 360° (multi-observer) survey for your individual professional development. This orientation will introduce you to the 360° tool and prepare you to take the assessment.

Upon completion of the orientation session, you will be able to:

  1. Know what a 360° instrument is and the benefits of 360° feedback.
  2. Use the SUNYLI 360° portal and be prepared to take the assessment.
  3. Identify observers to gain the feedback you are seeking.
  4. Learn what will happen next in terms of the final report and the 360°follow-up session.

*Note: At the orientation session, you will be asked to commit to participating. If you agree and do not participate, your department will be charged $75 to cover the costs.

About the facilitator: Ginny Hronek brings many years of experience in public service, higher education, faculty development, training and coaching. Her work has been domestic and international. Ginny has offered perspective and advice on radio, television and written for newspapers and periodicals and been a keynote speaker for several conferences.

FEEDBACK FROM  PAST PARTICIPANTS:

-The results will help me develop skills that need attention. It also showed me what my observers value.
-The process was very useful…it provided 25 individuals who work with me an opportunity to provide anonymous feedback from which I can learn and grow.
-The 360 LSI brought several issues in my performance and how it is perceived by others to my attention.
-I found it valuable and useful. The comments were particularly helpful. The instructional seminars at the start and end of the survey were very helpful as well.
-I think a 360 is a much better tool than an upward appraisal as it allows you to get a broader range of input.
-It is always good to get feedback every few years to keep on track.

This is a professional development opportunity for all full-time RIT faculty hosted by Faculty Career Development Services, The Wallace Center.

We invite you to join Provost Haefner and recipients of the 2015  Provost's Learning Innovations Grants (PLIG) as they present their results.

Each year PLIG grants provide support to faculty who want to explore and implement new technologies or methods to improve student learning. At this event, PLIG faculty recipients will share posters, videos, and/or tools demonstrating topics from the flipped classroom (one of last year’s focus areas) to interactive, virtual environments. They will address how the grants enabled them to enhance their students’ classroom or online experiences.

To learning more about PLIG, and each PLIG-funded project, https://www.rit.edu/ili/plig.

Appetizers and cocktails will be served. Registration is required.
