Hands-On Blogs@Baruch and Vocat Workshops for Faculty
Tuesday, Nov. 18 and Thursday, Nov. 20
12:45-2:20 pm, NVC 8-140
(two workshops covering the same material)
From: Luke Waltzer, Director, Center for Teaching and Learning
Are you interested in how you might integrate Blogs@Baruch and Vocat into your teaching, learning, and scholarship? The Center for Teaching and Learning will host a pair of hand-on workshops for faculty interested in learning more about Vocat and Blogs@Baruch. CTL staff will briefly present both tools, and then will be available for one-on-one consultation and support. Faculty members who are already using Vocat or Blogs@Baruch and would like help with specific features or capabilities are also welcome to attend.
RSVP to Craig Stone at Craig.Stone@baruch.cuny.edu.
Blogs@Baruch is an online publishing and academic networking platform for the Baruch College community, maintained by the Center for Teaching and Learning. It is used for course weblogs, student journals and publications, program web sites, public and administrative communication, and various faculty development initiatives.
Vocat is a web application that facilitates robust, asynchronous assessment of videos. Version 3.0, released in Spring 2014, features time-stamped annotations, peer review, server-side processing of videos, and video embeds. These new features have broadened assignment possibilities and intensified analysis of student-produced video content and allowed evaluators to assess student content down to the syllable.
