Dynamic Lecturing and the Science of Learning Workshop

Tue, 2019-10-08 15:00
Rubenstein Library 153 (Holsti-Anderson Family Assembly Room)
West Campus

Join us for this workshop focused on designing classes using dynamic lecturing and engaging and inclusive teaching strategies with Dr. Todd Zakrajsek. By the end of this session, you will be able to select and apply new ideas and techniques to help your students learn based on the science of learning, particularly cognitive load and information processing theory. You will be able to implement inclusive teaching techniques for your diverse students, specifically for students who tend toward introversion, whose first language is not English, and those with high social anxiety. You will be able to ensure that your assessment methods are inclusive, and align with your course learning goals.

Presenter bio:

Dr. Todd Zakrajsek is a very popular speaker and workshop leader in higher education, and the author of several books on teaching and learning, most recently Dynamic Lecturing: Research-Based Strategies to Enhance Lecture Effectiveness and the soon to be released Understanding How we Learn: Applying Key Educational Psychology Concepts in the Classroom. He is Associate Professor and Associate Director of Fellowship Programs in the Department of Family Medicine, UNC-Chapel Hill, former Executive Director, Center for Faculty Excellence at UNC-Chapel Hill, and former Director, Faculty Center for Innovative Teaching, Central Michigan University. He directs 5 national Lilly Conferences on College and University Teaching and Learning.

Lunch will be provided.

This workshop is second in a series of three sessions; although each of the sessions can be attended individually, we encourage you to register for Session 1 (September 20) and Session 3 (November 1) as well, as each session will provide you with new ideas and techniques.

This workshop is co-sponsored by Duke Learning Innovation, the Trinity Office of Assessment, the Trinity Office of the Dean of Academic Affairs, and the Duke Office of Faculty Advancement.

The Empowered Author: Evaluating Publishers, Negotiating Contracts, and Navigating the Scholarly Publishing Ecosystem

Tue, 2019-10-08 14:00
Bostock 127 (The Edge Workshop Room)
West Campus

When you’re getting started as an author, it can feel like someone else is setting all the rules and that the way things work now is the way it has always been. But current scholarly publishing models have only been around for the past couple of decades, and authors have more agency than they often assume. This is a workshop about the process of being an author, about getting published and getting the rewards of being published, while sharing the benefits of your research with as broad an audience as possible. Through a mix of lecture and hands-on activities you will learn about methods to:

  •  evaluate publishers, avoiding “predatory” journals and scams,

  • analyze and negotiate publication contracts, and

  • increase the reach of your work outside of traditional publications.

Copyright in Online Environments

Mon, 2019-10-07 17:00
Bostock 127 (The Edge Workshop Room)
West Campus

What do you need to know about standards of copyright and fair use when sharing materials in online learning management systems, digital publishing projects, open educational resources, or your thesis and dissertation? How can digital note taking tools help you make sure that you keep track of your sources, and that your references are appropriate and complete? Specialists in Scholarly Communications, Digital Publishing, and International and Area Studies at Duke Libraries will provide opportunities for a wide-ranging discussion of copyright issues in online environments.

Preserving collective and individual memories: Developing a Database of Primary Sources from the Mao Era

Thu, 2019-10-03 19:00
Rubenstein Library Carpenter Conference Room 249
From 1949 to 1982, Chinese society was buffeted by political upheavals from the "the Great Leap Forward" and the "Cultural Revolution." China was in tumult and the PRC was all but closed. Zhang Letian, a Fudan University professor, and his team collected information on life at the grassroots level, mostly from Zhejiang, Jiangxi, and Shanghai, including documents from local government offices and work units. The archive, stretching for a time span of ten years or more, provides detailed information on economic, political, social and cultural changes from 1949 to 1980s. The archive's unique collection of private correspondence, personal diaries, and work logs is also enormously valuable to our understanding of contemporary Chinese society.

Grade Faster and Easier with Gradescope

Thu, 2019-09-26 16:00
Bostock 039
West Campus

Join Learning Innovation and the Gradescope team to learn how to use Gradescope to dramatically reduce the pain and time associated with grading exams and homework, while providing better and faster feedback to your students.

You will learn how to:

  • Grade your existing exams and homework on Gradescope,
  • Grade groups of answers at once,
  • Make rubric changes as you grade - changes apply to previously graded work to maintain consistency,
  • Write each comment only once - apply previously used comments with a click,
  • Create better rubrics to increase student learning,
  • Use 'assignment analytics' to gain insight into student learning.

Note: lunch will be provided for those able to join us in Bostock 039, but this workshop can also be attended virtually through Zoom videoconferencing. When you register, let us know how you plan to attend.

DVS Workshop: Python for Data Science: Visualization with Altair

Thu, 2019-09-26 14:00
Bostock Library 023
(Library Classroom)
While Python is my preferred programming language for scripted data transformations, I have avoided routinely doing data visualization in Python. I could follow examples for the many Python visualization libraries, but in the end they all seemed confusing and made it hard to do the types of exploratory visualization that Tableau made easy. Finally, Altair has emerged as a viable alternative for me, because of the way it "thinks about" data and the visualization process.Altair is a declarative statistical visualization library for Python, built on top of the well-design and powerful Vega-Lite visualization grammar. (Vega-lite was built for the web, includes interaction, and is being adopted as a standard by high profile websites and tools.) It works well for small to medium-sized tabular data (like spreadsheets). In this workshop, I'll run you through both some introductory and some more complex examples using Altair with Python in Jupyter notebooks, so you can get a feeling for how you might use it in your own work.

Python for Data Science: Visualization with Altair

While Python is my preferred programming language for scripted data transformations, I have avoided routinely doing data visualization in Python. I could follow examples for the many Python visualization libraries, but in the end they all seemed confusing and made it hard to do the types of exploratory visualization that Tableau made easy. Finally, Altair has emerged as a viable alternative for me, because of the way it "thinks about" data and the visualization process.

Altair is a declarative statistical visualization library for Python, built on top of the well-design and powerful Vega-Lite visualization grammar. (Vega-lite was built for the web, includes interaction, and is being adopted as a standard by high profile websites and tools.) It works well for small to medium-sized tabular data (like spreadsheets). 

In this workshop, I’ll run you through both some introductory and some more complex examples using Altair with Python in Jupyter notebooks, so you can get a feeling for how you might use it in your own work. 

Note: This is an introductory workshop on Altair, but you’ll probably be more comfortable following along if you have at least a little bit of experience using the Python programming language, since I won’t be spending time on the language itself. (Feel free to sign up no matter what your experience level, but past students with no Python or programming experience have found it too confusing to be useful.) The classroom in which this is held has Windows computers with Python and Altair installed, so you don't need to bring a laptop.
