At the University of Chicago Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, we want students to have access to academic and cultural resources, but to also have opportunities independent of the classroom and student life. Thus, the following is a list of opportunities where students can go to search for funding, enrich their summers or find work after graduation.

Ten Myths about Teaching with Technology

Please join Dr. Carol Scheidenhelm, Director of Learning Technologies and Assessment at Loyola University, Chicago for a roundtable discussion on the "Ten Myths of Teaching with Technology." We've all heard them: experiences about teaching with technology that have been universalized and become part of the "urban legend" of higher education. This discussion is designed to identify some of these ideas and define what makes the real, myth, legend, or pure fantasy. Think of your own list and share them with participants.

Dr. Scheidenhelm earned a Ph.D. in English from Northern Illinois University, where she worked as Assistant Director of the Faculty Development and Instructional Design Center. She also taught online courses in English and Education for NIU. Now at Loyola University, Chicago, she has become active in both instructional design and assessment groups. She works actively with their ITS and Academic Technology Services to analyze and select appropriate online technologies. Carol chairs the Academic Technologies Committee at LUC and is the organizer of the Chicago Area Assessment Group (CAAG), an informal organization of university and college professionals interested in assessment.

When: Tuesday, March 22 from 11:00am-12:00pm
Where: Room 207, Regenstein Library
Who: All interested instructors and support staff
