Richard Minsky: Material Meets Metaphor 
Thursday, April 27, 2017, 6 p.m.
This is an illustrated talk about the relationship between image, material and metaphor. A methodology is presented that is useful in creating, critiquing, and collecting works of fine art, decorative art, and illustration. In 2010 Yale University, repository of the Richard Minsky Archive, presented a 50-year retrospective. This developed into The Book Art of Richard Minsky, published by George Braziller in 2011. Minsky will show how his own works of book art employ this analytical process, which includes the manipulation of emotion, intellect, and consciousness through visual and haptic stimuli.

This session will cover the Final Grade feature of the myCourses Grades tool.

Instructors have many options to control how a student sees that final grade, or if they even see it at all!

Learn the difference between the Final Calculated and the Final Adjusted grade, and why you might choose one over the other.

NOTE: Releasing final grades in myCourses does NOT fulfill the requirement of posting grades in SIS. myCourses is not connected to the Registrar's records where instructors are responsible for entering the final grade of record. This course does not cover that process or the Registrar's system.

Michigan Players

 

Intended audience: Department Heads, Chairs, Academic Leaders and those who show high potential for holding leadership positions in the future.

AdvanceRIT again welcomes the acclaimed Michigan Players, this time as “The Chair's Role in Faculty Mentoring” - fashioned as three thematically related vignettes.  This interactive workshop explores the department head’s role in faculty mentoring. In the workshop, participants see a department head discuss a third year review letter with a junior faculty member, welcome a new faculty hire, and check in with an associate professor regarding promotion readiness to the rank of Professor. Developed to showcase positive and potentially problematic mentoring behaviors, these interactive vignettes allow department heads and other academic leaders to think through the ways that they might create a more positive climate for faculty mentoring, both structurally in their department’s policies and inter-personally in the behaviors they adopt and use with their faculty colleagues. This workshop is intended for Department Chairs, Senior Leaders and those who show high potential for holding leadership positions in the future.
