Please join Terri Gustafson on Thursday, October 9th for a lunch and learn event to learn more about lecture capture applications in higher education. The College of Education shares a license with the College of Veterinary Medicine for Echo360’s room capture system, personal capture software, and external media hosting solution. There will be a review of the advantage of each feature and how instructors can use a lecture capture active learning solution to give students a personalized education using video, polls, quizzes and analytics to know what their students don’t know.

What: Lecture Capture Lunch and Learn

When: October 9th from 12:00 – 1:00 pm

CI Days provides an opportunity for the MSU community to share information about cyberinfrastructure resources and their use in research.  This free event will feature:

  • Nationally-renowned research leaders from multiple disciplines presenting how advanced technologies have enabled their scholarly work
  • A panel of MSU researchers discussing CI challenges and solutions
  • Posters showcasing CI-enabled research at MSU
  • Resource fair featuring CI resources available to MSU researchers; and
  • While the preconference workshops are full and no longer available for registration, the keynotes and breakout sessions look very interesting.

Participants are not required to be present for the full day of events.  You may select to participate in only the presentations that are of interest to your work. We hope you will register and plan to attend this event and also encourage interested faculty and students in your unit to register and attend. More information, including a detailed agenda is available at http:/tech.msu.edu/CI-Days/index.html.

This event, coordinated by the Institute for Cyber Enabled Research (iCER) and IT Services’ Research Support Team, is jointly sponsored by the Vice President for Research and Graduate Studies and IT Services. CI Days is based on an initiative originally supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF) in 2010 to support the implementation and use of cyberinfrastructure in support of research.

Round Table on Alternating – Hybrids and Flipped Classes in the College of Education

Tuesday, October 29, 2013 11:45 AM – 1:15 PM

Location:  252 Erickson Hall

Cost:  Free

Contact:  John Bell (johnbell@msu.edu)

Audiences: College of Education Faculty, Staff, and Students


A number of faculty in the College of Education have been experimenting with alternate structures for their classes. Two key alternate structures are “Alternating Hybrids” in which some face-to-face sessions are replaced with online work, and “Flipped Classes” in which what used to happen in class is now covered outside of class (e.g., a lecture) and what used to happen outside of class is now completed in class (e.g., problem sets).

In this Round Table, faculty will talk about their experiences with these different models along with their future directions. The invited participants include Kristy Cooper (EAD), Kim Maier (CEPSE), Danah Henricksen (CEPSE), and Punya Mishra (CEPSE).

Food will be provided at 11:45, followed by faculty descriptions of their work and what they have learned. There will be an opportunity for questions and dialogue.

This Round Table will be broadcast live and will also be available at edtalks.educ.msu.edu afterward.
