Special Delivery: It’s a Freezer!

Preservation Underground - Thu, 2017-04-20 20:51

When I was a kid, my mother would recite this poem in the springtime when all the new plants and birds started emerging:

“Spring has sprung
The grass is riz
I wonder where the birdies is…”

I don’t know where the birdies are, but we know where our brand new freezer is. It’s been delivered to the disaster supply room. Happy Preservation Week to us!

The post Special Delivery: It’s a Freezer! appeared first on Preservation Underground.

A Portrait of Venice

Thu, Apr 20, 2017
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Perkins Library 218(Towerview Room)
"A Portrait of Venice" is an innovative exhibition that will open at Duke's Nasher Museum of Art in September 2017. Jacopo De' Barbari's patented image, a meticulous portrait of Venice in 1500, is the gateway to a world of knowledge. Along with the mural-sized, first state print borrowed from the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the exhibition features a number of interactive digital engagements that bring the city to life. Multi-media visualizations of the print's art historical and historical material have led to exciting discoveries and invaluable understandings, information to be shared with the public for the first time. The result is an original, highly dynamic, and multi-sensory way of experiencing art and its history. Dr. Lanzoni (Wired! Lab) will give an overview of this digital humanities initiative, and Mary Kate Weggeland will discuss her work with the exhibition and on a digital display of the Civitates Orbis Terrarum atlas from the Duke Libraries' collection.

President Donald Trump had said that he would "load [Guantanamo] up with some bad dudes." He also said that he would be willing to bring American citizens to Guantanamo for trial, although current law forbids the trial of Americans in Guantanamo. What does the future hold for the current 41 prisoners at Guantanamo, and could the Trump Administration transfer other alleged terrorists to Guantanamo? The Witness to Guantanamo Project is the world's most comprehensive collection of filmed stories about the prison camps at the U.S. naval base in Cuba. Join Peter Honigsberg, founder and director, for a special lunchtime discussion. Free and open to the public. Lunch will be provided.

New Directions in Instructional Design: Keeping Pace in a Time of Rapid Change

Bostock 024
West Campus

Wednesday 4/19/2017 and Thursday 4/20/2017
12:00 - 3:30 pm each day (attend all or part of either or both days)
Bostock 024

This ELI Focus Session is an interactive virtual conference across two days, featuring live web-based presentations, participant discussions, and activities supporting the theme: "New Directions in Instructional Design." See the full event schedule here.

Instructional design has emerged as the key resource for fueling change and innovation in teaching and learning. This new importance brings with it significant challenges, as instructional design must keep pace with—if not remain a step or two ahead of—the new directions and opportunities to support learners:

  • What new organizational models and practices do instructional design teams need to adopt?
  • How can instructional designers best make use of the increasing amount of learning data that is available?
  • What kinds of evidence-based practices make the most sense for instructional designers?
  • What are some professional development approaches that provide structure for instructional designers to share their mutual areas of expertise, while focusing on key areas of professional growth?

This online event will bring together a variety of teaching and learning professionals to explore successful models for leadership in teaching and learning. The session will be valuable for:

  • Learning technologists and instructional designers
  • Campus teaching and learning center directors and staff
  • Faculty members and instructors
  • Senior teaching and learning administrators (e.g., deans, provost office staff)
  • Librarians

Join CIT staff in our meeting room for one or both days, to view the sessions and engage in discussion with Duke colleagues and those from other institutions. Please register if you plan to attend.
