Using D2L Tools for Formative Assessment in Your Online Class
Location: TCB 109
In contrast to summative assessment, formative assessment has value in helping the instructor understand student comprehension of the content as the lesson unfolds. It is meant to be diagnostic in the sense that both instructor and student can benefit from just-in-time feedback on learning objectives. In this session, Dr. Wang will discuss formative assessment using a multitude of features and functions of D2L Learning Environment, including class progress, content access logs, criterion-referenced rubrics associated with assignment submissions and discussion participation, ePortfolio, mini quiz, survey, real-time video presentation, paper originality check, Feedback Studio, and competency/learning objectives. Please join us.

Dr. Omar El-Gayar
Crimson Hexagon: A Tool for Social Media Analytics
Location: TCB 109
According to Gohfar Khan, social media analytics is the “the art and science of extracting valuable hidden insights from vast amounts of semi-structured and unstructured social media data to enable informed and insightful decision making.” However, analyzing the wealth of social media data available has been hampered by the complexity of the techniques and algorithms used to harvest and analyze such data, as well as the ability to gin meaningful insight from what is sometime referred to as messy data. Tools such as Crimson-Hexagon are aiming to fill this gap. In this presentation, Dr. Omar El-Gayar will provide an overview of Crimson-Hexagon with an emphasis on social media analytics. DSU has a two-year subscription to this immense data base which can be an asset to anyone who seeks to leverage social media for research or teaching in healthcare, politics, consumer trends, and other contemporary topics.

Promoting Student Interaction in Online Courses
Location: Mundt Library 201
Online courses provide unprecedented access to learning experiences for college students. When those courses include generous amounts of interaction they result in both improved student learning and course satisfaction. But how does an instructor encourage interaction when students seem to be comfortable as passive learners? Or, when the content and the technology seem to defy interaction efforts? Dr. Viki Johnson and instructors Katie Anderson and Dan Klumper, who all have been recognized for their outstanding online courses, will share some of their strategies for engaging learners in interactive experiences in online course work.

Empowering Students to Achieve Their Goals in Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activity
Location: TCB 109
Many of us train undergraduate students to complete independent research as part of our mission at the university, yet very little attention has historically been paid to best practices for training undergraduates in research, scholarship, and creative activity. We hope that this undergraduate mentoring workshop helps bridge this gap.
