Teaching with Time in Mind

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Fri, 2018-05-25 14:00
Other (see event description)
East Campus

Teaching takes time and energy, two of our most precious and limited resources. In this workshop hosted by Faculty Write, we will discuss how to direct your time and energy to promote learning while also making time for your other responsibilities (especially writing). We will reflect on how you spent your teaching time this past academic year, and learn to plan to teach with time in mind for the year ahead. Discover principles and strategies that enhance efficiency and learning, and apply them to your course plans.

Workshop leader: Dr. Monique Dufour, an award-winning teacher with extensive experience in faculty development.

The workshop will be held in Art 100.

RSVP to jahern@duke.edu.

The Menopause Monologues

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Wed, 2018-05-23 19:00
Rubenstein Library 153 (Holsti-Anderson Family Assembly Room)
West Campus

“I’m going to pull menopause out into the open, remove the cobwebs, clean it off, and look at it” – Rosetta Reitz.(from Menopause: A Positive Approach. Rosetta Reitz (1924-2008). New York: Penguin Books, 1979, c1977, pg. 1.)

To bring an oft-taboo topic out into the open, you are cordially invited to a dramatic reading: The Menopause Monologues.

Excerpts from pertinent texts will bring to life the voices of women and men, past and present, whose perspectives on menopause range from “the historical to the hysterical.” In addition to the readings, individuals are also encouraged to share their own stories and experiences of “the change.” Light refreshments will be provided. The reading complements the Spring exhibition on display in the Josiah Charles Trent History of Medicine Room, The Change of Life: Menopause and Our Changing Perspectives. Curated by Erin Rutherford, Josiah Charles Trent Intern, the exhibition runs from March 20 – July 14, 2018. This program is co-sponsored by the History of Medicine Collections and the Sallie Bingham Center for Women’s History and Culture.

The Great American Read on PBS

Humanities - Tue, 2018-05-22 16:20

The Great American Read premiers on PBS tonight at 8:00 pm.  It’s going to be an 8 part series hosted by Meredith Vieira.  They have a list of the 100 titles selected (along with a checklist you can download) on their website, and voting opens after the first episode.  You can see how they selected the titles on their about page.

As you can imagine, we have many of the titles here in our library.  I’ve randomly selected a couple of titles from each of the nine categories to highlight some of what we own (these are no indication of how I will be voting).

Mystery/Horror

Romance

Classic

Science Fiction/Fantasy

Adventure

Coming of Age

Young Adult

Contemporary

Literary

You might also check if Durham Public Library and Chapel Hill Public Library have copies!

Join the conversation by using their hashtag #GreatReadPBS. I’m thinking about starting a campaign to include Mrs. Dalloway and Kindred!
