Important Note: Do not use the Faculty tile found on the home page of Campus Connect. Please follow the above instructions for the correct navigation.

Additional Note: Your class must have a status of 'Active' in Campus Connect and you must be listed as the instructor in order for your class to be listed in your Faculty Profile. Once the class is entered in Campus Connect with you as the instructor and is made 'Active', it will also be reflected in your Faculty Profile.

Faculty with needs for specific classrooms or types of classroom features should indicate them in the comment box. Although requesting specific classrooms does not guarantee assignment, it helps Academic Space and Scheduling to match course pedagogy with available classrooms to the extent that it is possible.

Please note: If your class is not listed in Campus Connect, it will not be listed in Faculty Profile. Once the class is entered in Campus Connect, it will also be reflected in Faculty Profile.

Upcoming Tech Tuesdays

We have two exciting Technology Tuesdays this quarter:

1: Using Edutainment to Teach Business Courses.
Guest presentation from Kelly Richmond Pope (Associate Professor, School of Accountancy & MIS) and Roni Jackson (

Have you ever thought about using edutainment as business pedagogy? An edutainment curriculum is designed to educate through entertainment. Early implementation of edutainment dates back to Poor Richard’s Almanac, with Benjamin Franklin combining entertaining and educational content, such as puzzles and rules of conduct, for colonists.

In this workshop, you will learn how to implement edutainment into your courses. Our speaker, accounting professor and award-winning filmmaker Kelly Richmond Pope, will unveil a new edutainment product designed specifically for the business curriculum with funding from the DePaul University Academic Innovation Grant.

2: How Students Cheat with Technology
An updated encore session from 2018

Technology can be a boon to educators, extending the reach and productivity of effective professors. However, there are various technological solutions that can be abused by students to cheat on assignments and high-stakes testing. In this engaging and hands-on session, you will be introduced to some of the gadgets, websites and software that can be used by the less-than-ethical students. Methods that professors can use to protect the integrity of their teaching will be presented.

Some of the examples presented include:

• Cheating gadgets - “Spy” pens, wristwatches with hidden cameras and microphones, and other devices to beware
• Software and website that creates corrupt Office documents
• Sites where students can find your papers and exam information
• Sites where students pay others to write papers
• How Desire2Learn can highlight examples of plagiarism
• How online exams can be secured
