From Shipping Crate to Exhibit Case: The Lisa Unger Baskin Collection

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Fri, 2019-04-12 15:00
Rubenstein Library 153 (Holsti-Anderson Family Assembly Room)
West Campus

In April 2015, the Lisa Unger Baskin Collection arrived at the David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library at Duke University. Comprising over 11,000 rare books and thousands of manuscripts, journals, ephemera, and artifacts, the Baskin Collection includes many well-known monuments of women’s history and arts as well as lesser-known works produced by female scholars, printers, publishers, laborers, scientists, authors, artists, and political activists.

“From Shipping Crate to Exhibit Case” looks at the comprehensive work of libraries, including how we organize, conserve, describe, and exhibit, through the lens of this unique collection.

Our new exhibit Five Hundred Years of Women’s Work: The Lisa Unger Baskin Collection will be available for viewing after the program, in the Mary Duke Biddle Room.

Free and open to the public.

Grade Exams Faster and Easier with Gradescope

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Wed, 2019-04-10 16:00
Bostock 039
West Campus

Learn how other instructors at Duke use Gradescope to dramatically reduce the pain and time associated with grading their exams and homework while providing better and faster feedback to their 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.

We're looking forward to seeing you!
Duke Learning Innovation and the Gradescope team

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