    Conversations around the many aspects of diversity and inclusion are an ongoing dialog. These can be complex issues and there are no clear-cut answers. Every day in our classrooms and office environments, questions arise around the diverse culture in which we live in. CELT is partnering with the Office of Diversity and Inclusion to begin the conversation. In this 1hr open conversation, we would like to hear from you regarding the issues surrounding diversity and inclusion that interest you, as well as the topics you would like to explore further. Based on these conversations we will build future programming targeted at the identified needs. We are excited about creating this space for the ongoing exchange of ideas related to understanding, defining, and embracing diversity.

    Discussing the Higher Education NMC Horizon Report
    Autumm Caines - CELT Office
    Explore If you have never heard of the NMC Horizon Report this session is a great introduction.  The report is a collaborative effort between the NMC (New Media Consortium) and the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI), an EDUCAUSE Program. This eleventh edition describes annual findings from the NMC Horizon Project, an ongoing research project designed to identify and describe emerging technologies likely to have an impact on learning, teaching, and creative inquiry in education. Six key trends, six significant challenges, and six emerging technologies are identified across three adoption horizons over the next one to five years, giving campus leaders and practitioners a valuable guide for strategic technology planning. The format of the report is new this year, providing these leaders with more in-depth insight into how the trends and challenges are accelerating and impeding the adoption of educational technology, along with their implications for policy, leadership and practice.

    Stopping Plagiarism at the Source: Why Assignments Matter
    Turnitin Webinar with Barry Gilmore and Jason Chu
    iLearn integration demo with Autumm Caines - CELT Office
    Learn Half of this workshop will be a 30 minute webcast from Turnitin followed by a 30 minute demo of how Turnitin integrates into iLearn by Autumm Caines.  More info on the webcast can be found here http://go.turnitin.com/stopping-plagiarism-at-source

    Every teacher dreads it—the plagiarized paper, the confrontation with a student, the demise of trust and learning. As schools move toward an online future, educators are understandably concerned about increases in plagiarism. Yet while the problem is real, there are solutions beyond forcing teachers into the role of police. In this presentation, we will reconsider our assignments with the goal of discovering how we can stop plagiarism before it happens. We’ll also touch on the role of school and classroom culture, and teacher attitudes and preparation.
