FEB2621st Century Scholarship Unlocked: Open AccessFEBRUARY 26 2016, 3:30pm WAL - Wallace (05), 1st Floor Community Area
When: 02/26/2016 at 3:30pm - 5:00pm.

The open access movement (OA) has been gaining momentum for a number of years, but what does it mean for academic scholarship? As traditional publishers struggle to retain their relevancy in an increasingly web-based environment, scholars have found legitimate open access venues to improve the dissemination of their research and scholarship, increase recognition, accommodate new interdisciplinary works, and add to the world-wide body of knowledge in a timely manner, while continuing to uphold the peer-review process.

Come and enjoy cocktails and light refreshments in an informal setting (individual demonstration tables) as you mingle with faculty and staff from RIT and other institutions who have published journals, conference proceedings, and textbooks on OA platforms. Learn more about open access, the support provided by The Wallace Center, and learn how many of your articles and papers currently published in print journals and proceedings can also be made available via OA.  Drop in anytime to view what your colleagues have  have accomplished and learn how OA may benefit your own scholarship in the 21st century!

MAR04Students as Creators: Assigning Multimedia Projects - Adjunct Community EventMARCH 04 2016, 11:30am WAL - Wallace (05), 1540 - RADSCC Classroom
When: 03/04/2016 at 11:30am - 12:30pm.

With the popularity of online media and the wide array of self-production tools, students have an opportunity to go beyond traditional assignment deliverables.

Multimedia projects allow students to combine different types of media (text, audio, video, pictures, graphics, etc.) into a single cohesive presentation. They offer an opportunity for students to actively engage in a project in a way that is relevant and familiar to how they gather and understand information already.

Join our guest presenters and your fellow adjuncts for a demonstration highlighting RIT student project examples and a review of the tools used to create them.

Participants will be able to identify:

  • Tools and processes required to assign student media based projects
  • Assignments and projects that can be effectively delivered through student media based projects
  • Assignment(s) within an existing course where students can leverage multimedia tools

This is a professional development and networking activity for all RIT adjunct faculty.
