Upcoming Sessions

Tech Tuesdays Jim Valentine Guest Presentation: OneNote Class Use

  • Date: July 27
  • Time: 12PM - 1PM
In this lively and interactive guest presentation, learn how OneNote could be used to improve research productivity for you and your students.

Microsoft OneNote is probably the most widely installed software application you’ve never used (it’s been part of Microsoft Office dating back to 2003 and yet it’s sadly under-utilized). Jim Valentine (Senior Instructor and Executive Director, Driehaus Center for Behavioral Finance) uses it with students to conduct research:

  • In most cases the software is already installed on their PC or Mac (it’s easy to download if they don’t have it)
  • OneNote allows for capture of text, pictures, tables, file, video, audio, web pages, emails, handwritten notes, etc. This means students can include almost any type of research they find.
  • The “OneNote Class Notebook” add-on allows faculty to quickly review students’ notebooks to evaluate the quality of the student’s research.
  • OneNote is fully integrated with D2L, which makes it even easier for students to access and faculty to manage.
  • OneNote can be set up to allow students to conduct research in teams, which has been an integral part of Jim’s course for the past 4 years.

Sanjay Deshmukh Guest Presentation: Gradescope

  • Date: September 14
  • Time: 12PM - 1PM
Gradescope is a tool designed to streamline and standardize paper-based, digital, and code assignments. It supports problem sets and projects as well as worksheets, quizzes, exams, and papers. Students can upload written assignments to be graded by an instructor or teaching assistant in an online interface that allows for spontaneous rubric creation and feedback. Gradescope is integrated with D2L with embedded links and gradebook synchronization.

Sanjay Deshmukh (Professor and Director, MS in Finance Program) has been leveraging Gradescope in his online courses. Gradescope allows him to design exams and assignments that critically assess the level of student learning. Gradescope has helped him to efficiently provide crucial feedback to his students, helping them to better understand complex topics.

In this interactive session you will discover how you can use this innovative tool to improve your teaching and provide enhanced feedback to your students.
