DELTA – Congratulations to Shayna Burchett & Klaus Woelk

Congratulations to Shayna Burchett and Klaus Woelk.  Both have been participating in the DELTA (Delivering Experiential Labs to All) project.  They have been working on a blended Chemistry redesign for Chemistry 1319 (or the old Chem 2).  There efforts were recently recognized by the American Chemical Society.  On March 24th, Shayna and Klaus were asked to present a talk about their efforts at the 249th ACS National Meeting & Exposition.  They have been working hard to transform this course and will be in full production in the fall.  This will allow them to offer this course to all students who are eligible in the fall (and taking Chemistry 1310).  The blended format allows them to have more students enrolled.  This will keep students on a better schedule in their coursework.  They have also worked to redesign each lab to provide the correct lab experiences students need and are rigorous to push students to work harder.  If you want more information on the DELTA project contact Amy Skyles (skylesa@mst.edu) in Educational Technology.

CLC Software Request Process for SUMMER / FALL 2015 Now Open!

CLCLogo-02-mini4EdTech is opening up the Computing Learning Center (CLC) software request process for instructors who need specific software packages installed in computer learning centers across campus.

The software request web-based application is available on the EdTech web site.

  1. Go to edtech.mst.edu/clc/.
  1. Click Request Software (Faculty).

Please enter all software requests before close of business on FRIDAY, APRIL 17, 2015.

Software must be requested for each semester in which it will be used!

Software currently available in each of the CLCs on campus can be found on EdTech’s CLC index page.

IMPORTANT:

  1. DO submit requests in a timely manner to ensure the best possible support from IT and EdTech.
  2. DO submit requests for software that is already installed. This helps IT and EdTech determine how each application is currently being used and which licenses need to be renewed.
  3. DO submit requests for software for which the license has not been acquired. We need to know which software is requested to obtain the proper licenses!

We appreciate your cooperation!

Questions, comments, or concerns about the CLC Request process can be sent to edtech@mst.edu.
