Teaching to who and where students are: Making courses accessible @ Digital Scholarship Lab (2nd floor of the west wing in the MSU Main Library)

Presenters: Madeline Shellgren

This workshop focuses on various notions of accessibility. We will start with questioning who students are and why that is important to consider. Together, we will also explore ways to make space for identity and student agency, discussing how we can help create opportunities for students to empower themselves and find relevance in course content, curriculum, and design. We will then move to ways to critically leverage today’s technology, specifically focusing on intentional and ongoing work we can do as instructors to remove barriers to information and education.

Liaisons in French: What are students really learning in class? @ B135 Wells Hall
Mar 15 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Liaisons in French: What are students really learning in class? @ B135 Wells Hall

Presenter: Dr. Anne Violin-Wigent

As part of my current investigation on the effectiveness of explicit instruction, this project investigates the evolution of the accuracy of French liaisons produced by students over a semester. Do they actually produce French liaisons more accurately after they are given the list of explicit rules than before? How do they change after the lesson? After a brief explanation of what French liaisons are, I will present preliminary results that compare students enrolled in a French phonetics and pronunciation class (FRN 330) where they are taught the rules, to students enrolled in FRN 320, a grammar and writing class that does not include liaisons at all.

This workshop meets on Thursday from 3-4 pm in B135 Wells Hall. Cookies and coffee will be served.

Promoting foreign language study in middle schools @ B135 Wells Hall
Mar 21 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Promoting foreign language study in middle schools @ B135 Wells Hall

Presenter: Alissa Cohen

This workshop will explore some of the challenges of promoting language study among American school children and look at the CeLTA Fellowship project I conducted this year to address some of these challenges. I will provide an overview of a language exploration club that was designed to introduce students at East Lansing’s MacDonald Middle School to the study of foreign languages in general and, more specifically, to the languages offered at the school, French, German, and Spanish. The goal of the project was twofold: To promote foreign language study by middle schoolers and to promote service learning and teaching practice by MSU students in the fields of language learning and teaching. Participants in this workshop will have the opportunity to review and evaluate the structure, materials, and outcomes of the program and contribute to the revision process, with an ultimate goal of encouraging greater future participation among the middle schoolers and MSU student teacher volunteers and to create contacts and collaborations across the many MSU units involved in promoting language teaching and learning.

A Crash Course in Research Data Management @ Digital Scholarship Lab, Main Library
Mar 28 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm
A Crash Course in Research Data Management @ Digital Scholarship Lab, Main Library | East Lansing | Michigan | United States

Have you ever lost a project file? Been unable to find the most recent version of a document? Suffered hard drive failure or had your laptop stolen? Been unable to open old files? Been told your data management plan wasn’t detailed enough? Forgotten which file was which? Even small research projects can generate enough data and digital material to become confusing and vulnerable to loss. Start your next project (or class) out with a plan to keep your project organized and your data safe, from inception until you are ready to share, reuse, or revisit the project whether next month or years from now. This workshop will provide strategies and insights for managing your data for effective collaboration, to meet funder requirements, or to preserve it for reuse or sharing in the future. Part of the MSU Digital Humanities Workshop series, this introductory workshop is open to anyone – students, faculty, staff, the public – from any disciplinary background.
