“Participation Points: Making Student Engagement Visible”

From the Faculty Focus blog. “As I contemplate my syllabi for a new semester, I possess renewed hope for students eager to discuss anything at 8 a.m., yet I have taught long enough to know that I will simply appreciate clean clothes and brushed teeth. As reality sets in, I add to my grading criteria an element that I hope will encourage engagement from even the most timid learners.”

MNState Shark Tank

This year’s SharkTank competition will take place on Thursday, April 20, 2017 from 5:00-8:00pm at the Sheraton Bloomington Hotel, 5601 West 78th Street, Minneapolis, MN (formerly Sofitel).

OER Discussion- Koffee with Karen

“Do you have questions about open educational resources and practices?  Looking for tips and support from colleagues about how best to integrate open texts or want to better understand how to use “print on demand”?

Please join colleagues from across the state for casual and lively conversation about these topics and more!  The conversation will be facilitated by Dr. Karen Pikula, Psychology instructor at Central Lakes College and the Minnesota State OER Coordinator.  It’s easy to join and learn more about what is happening in the world of open education at Minnesota State.
