09.22 // Getting the Most out of Turnitin

10:00am-11:00am

Location: Agnes Arnold Hall, Room 210

Turnitin is one of the most heavily used educational technologies at UH. However, many instructors use it only to determine if students have improperly used another author’s work without proper citation. With the release of Turnitin’s new Feedback Studio over the summer, there is a lot more that can be done with the platform to coach your students to become better writers.  In this session, we’ll dig deep into all the features that Turnitin Feedback Studio offers so that you can get the most out of a tool you probably already use.

The URL will appear on your registration confirmation

Hurricane Harvey forced everyone in the UH community to shift priorities and concerns. In this self-reflective Emerging Trends in Technology session, we invite the faculty to come together online to discuss instructional continuity practices that worked and didn’t work so well to help us all for future campus emergency closures. Instructional Designers will be available to provide suggestions for quickly getting content and videos online. We hope you can join the conversation.

11.10 // Storytelling with Data

10:00am-11:00am

Location: Agnes Arnold Hall, Room 210

The process of exploring data and inserting it into a visual context is called data visualization. Data visualization tools are often used to tell a clear story with the data. Claude Willan, Director of Digital Research Commons at University of Houston Libraries, Lindita Camaj, Associate Professor at School of Communication, and Wenli Gao, Data Services Librarian will talk about concepts and principles of data visualization and the process of acquiring, cleaning, and creating visualization. They will also demonstrate freely available tools for your research and instruction. Audience will learn not only the conceptual aspect of data visualization, but also get to know some freely available tools for data visualization.
