On Display at UCBA Library: Native American Heritage Month

by Christian Boyles

Native American Heritage Book DisplayThis commemorative month aims to provide a platform for Native Americans in the United States of America to share their culture, traditions, music, crafts, dance, and ways and concepts of life. This gives Native people the opportunity to express to their community, both city, county and state officials their concerns and solutions for building bridges of understanding and friendship in their local area.  Your UCBA library is sharing a selection of our titles relating to many aspects of Native American life. The display will be available until December 8th and can also be browsed online on the Library Displays at UCBA guide.  Special thanks to our student employee, Haiden Reno, for putting the display together.

What I Did On My Summer Vacation, Part II

by Kellie Tilton

Hi, again! Kellie Tilton, UCBA Librarian, back to give you part two of my Summer Vacation Library Adventures. If you miss the first one, it is available here!

In July, I was fortunate enough to travel to Barcelona, Spain to present at the 2017 EduLearn Conference with Becky Leporati, my colleague in the Langsam Library. We had submitted two presentations for consideration and both were accepted. The first, A Flipped Classroom is an Inclusive Classroom, was about incorporating Universal Design into eLearning projects and the second, Format Choices are Content Choices, involved selecting the right format to design eLearning projects.

The conference itself was an international, with 80 countries represented. I met educators from the UK, South Africa, Sweden, Australia and more and was able to learn so much about the similarities and differences in our approach to technology in education.

It was also my first trip to Spain and it was absolutely beautiful. I took a few days of vacation so I was able to visit Madrid and Toledo, as well. All three cities were awe-inspiring, the people were friendly and welcoming and taking in the culture and heritage of Spain there only made me want to go back again.

It was an amazing experience and I am so grateful I was able to present and attend!
