CAPE is offering the following workshops during April:


Developing Valid and Reliable Rubrics. This workshop will introduce participants to the basics of writing student learning outcomes (SLOs). Participants will learn about the fundamental structure of SLOs and common strategies for development. Participants are encouraged to bring their SLOs for analysis and discussion. Lessons learned from this workshop may be useful for those developing course or program learning outcomes. Facilitated by the Office of Institutional Research and Effectiveness.

Faculty Learning Community (FLC): Flipping the Classroom. This session is designed to foster interaction of faculty who are sharing information about "flipping the classroom". Whether you are interested in flipping your class or are already flipping elements of your class, come share your interest and experience. The intent of this FLC is to meet monthly so faculty can share the successful attempts and the not-so-successful attempts of flipping.  Facilitated by the Faculty Learning Community Members.

Using Images and Videos in Presentatons Part of National Medical Library Week. Because medicine is a visual science, high quality images and videos are important aids in diagnosis and teaching. In this workshop, participants will learn how to locate images and videos in SpringerImages for use in presentations.  Users will learn how to create a personal account in SpringerImages, which allows a user to save images and searches for future use, and create PowerPoint presentations and PDF files. Using images from AccessMedicine, MD Consult, UpToDate, Visual Dx, and the library’s Images Research Guide will be included.  Copyright implications for use of these images will also be discussed. Presented by Ruth Harris.

Webinar: Social Media in Higher Ed: Legal Considerations. If you’re not careful, it won’t take you very long to tweet your way into some kind of trouble. Social media is relatively new, very exciting, and rife with potential pitfalls. If you don’t know what the risks are, you can get your institution into trouble with legal issues such as defamation, vicarious liability, copyright and trademark violations, and more. But Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram, and other social media platforms don¿t have to be danger zones loaded with legal landmines. They can be just what they were intended to be: innovative and fresh ways to communicate with and engage students, alumni, and other populations. The key to making this happen is evaluating social media options and developing a social media strategy that guides individual and institutional uses of various platforms. Webinar presented by Jacob Rooksby – Magna Publications.
