The Original Test and Survey tool in Oncourse is being retired August 16. To minimize the impact of issues related to exporting and importing tests, instructors who are using the Original Test and Survey tool are urged to migrate their assessments well before the retirement date. The CTL is offering open migration help sessions throughout the summer. Faculty are invited to simply show up and walk in to these sessions but are encouraged to register in advance. Consultants will be available to answer your questions and assist you in the process.

Meeting the NSF Data Management Plan Requirement: What You Need to Know

Wednesday, June 13 | 1 - 2:30 p.m. | UL 1126
Register »   | Organizer: Center for Research and Learning

As of January 18, 2011, the National Science Foundation now requires a Data Management Plan for all new proposals. This plan should describe how the proposed study will disseminate and share the collected research results. Do you know what this plan should include? Are you aware of best practices and standards for data management, sharing, and curation? Do you know what support services are available at IUPUI? This workshop will outline the process of developing a data management plan, provide resources for DMP development, and introduce data services available on campus. Q&A will follow the presentation. Anyone interested in or planning to apply for NSF funding should attend.

In addition to these workshops, the Data Services Program provides individual consultations in developing and implementing data management plans. Researchers interested in these services can contact us at (317) 278-7125  or dataserv@iupui.edu.  Additionally, we have a wealth of information and resources available on our website:http://ulib.iupui.edu/digitalscholarship/dataservices.

 

Project-Based Learning Institute

June 25-28, 2012
Register and for more information»   | Sponsors: IUPUI, University of Indianapolis and Wayne Township School District

The annual Project-Based Learning Institute prepares educators for implementing PBL by immersing them in an authentic PBL environment. Over the course of four days, educators from across the state work together in small content-area groups to develop a project for their classroom. The Institute offers programming for novice, intermediate, and advanced PBL practitioners and administrators in grades K through 16.

The PBL Institute models project-based learning for teachers just as it should be implemented with students. At the outset of the event, participants receive an entry document and learn the vocabulary of PBL. Educators have the opportunity to see and critique successful projects. In small groups, facilitators guide participants through the PBL process as they create projects for their classrooms. Throughout the event, participants can choose to attend workshops and mini-lessons to increase their PBL skills. Workshops cover topics like differentiation, technology, and integrating state academic standards. Media specialists staff the library to provide additional support through research and idea generation. At the conclusion of the event, participants present their projects to other educators to gain authentic feedback.
