Student Review/Peer Assessment:  to Deepen Learning;  to Reduce Faculty Workload Both? Either? Neither?
Date: April 24, 2015  
Time: 2:00-3:00 pm ET - free to all
Presenters: Ed Gehringer, Associate Professor, NC State University, Jennifer J. Kidd, Senior Lecturer, Old Dominion University Steve Gilbert, Beth Dailey - TLT Group, and students involved in the project

Should students grade each other’s work?
When peers are involved in the assessment process it can provide more feedback to students and deepen the learning process. But is it a viable practice? Do students grade accurately? How can educators help students be better reviewers? Join a conversation about peer review and peer grading with  National Science Foundation IUSE (Improving Undergraduate STEM Education) project leaders. They will describe their project and what they hope to learn.  The discussion will focus on peer review at multiple grade levels and include both computer supported and paper based processes. We will also hear from students actively engaged in student peer review/assessment.  Participants will be invited to suggest additional research questions and to consider participating in future research.

“Saving Our Stuff?” - From Research References to Family Pix: Effective Practices in Personal Digital Archiving for Faculty and Students
Date: April 17, 2015  
Time: 2:00-3:00 pm ET - free to all
Presenters: Steve Gilbert, Beth Dailey, TLT Group and others

Suffering from "...link rot, ...content drift, ...and reference rot... "?

What kinds of useful information can we find in the Internet and “Internet Archives”?  Can we find it again?  How can we confidently tell others how to find it … even days, months, years later?  Guidelines and tools for research, bibliographies, and citations.  [Retroactive advice for David Petraus & Hillary Clinton?]

How can internet archives (Wayback Machine, et al.) be used for research? For permanent(?) storage of personal, professional, or institutional work?
What are good options TODAY for protecting (long-term) personal and professional info?  For sustaining access to information produced as an employee of an organization - even when no longer affiliated with the organization?  Even when the organization dies?

We'll describe, discuss, and demonstrate guidelines and tools to help students and faculty use the Wayback Machine, other internet archives, Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs), and related resources to find, retrieve​, save, share,​ and cite​ online information for their research and instructional activities - legally, effectively, and respectfully.​

For example, is there an MLA format recommended for citing URLs for referenced information from the Wayback Machine?  Embed code available to accompany Flickr images that provides correct citation info!  Using DIIGO to store media plus citation info for later usage and attribution and sharing!
