ACTL

CELEBRATION OF FACULTY SCHOLARSHIP AND TEACHING

Please consider submitting material for the Celebration of Faculty Scholarship and Teaching which will be held on a date (TBA) in October, 2009.

The library needs your scholarship published or performed through August 30, 2009-including books, journal articles, grants, SoTL articles, music compositions, plays, photos of works of art, papers or presentations at conferences.  (Scholarship published or performed after August 30 will be included in the next year's celebration.)

We also need narratives about your teaching innovations. The topic for the Fall, 2009, celebration will be "Responding to Student Writing." Faculty are invited to submit narratives on approaches to this topic. (e.g., In what ways do you respond to student writing? How do you phrase critical remarks so as not to discourage?  Do you use an effective grading rubric to respond to student writing?  What is a timely response to student writing assignments?)

Please use the library's handy online forms at http://www.augustana.edu/library/Services/facultyachievement.html to submit your information. The deadline for submissions will be announced in the Fall-but please help us to "get ahead" over the summer!


NEW ARTICLE ON MOODLE

We have added the following article from the Inside Higher Education On-Line Journal on the ACTL Moodle site entitled: The Dreaded Grade Appeal by Shari Dinkins.  Dinkins presents practical ways to avoid grade disputes through careful syllabus design.
