Description

What should researchers do when they have completed their electronic thesis or dissertations? Come and explore best practices during this workshop where we will discuss crucial data curation and digital longevity techniques that will help students and faculty identify and offset risks and threats to their digital research footprints. We will discuss what to do with the data, how to handle copyright, version control, data organization, file formatting and metadata as well as where should these things be stored. Kayla Siddell will present.

Campus support available for promoting student learning outside of the classroom.

The Center for Student Success offers opportunity for assistance outside of the classroom to students. Traditionally he have offered tutoring (one-on-one, and a group) as well as Supplemental Instruction (SI) to the campus. Recently we have participated in a few pilot projects that show great promise. These projects will be described in the presentation provided by Brad Byers.

Continental breakfast will be served.
