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!
The UCBA Library is pleased to welcome five new student assistants for the 2017-2018 school year. They are joined by five returning student assistants. Together, they assist students, staff and faculty by answering general questions about the library and its policies, checking materials in and out, facilitating study room usage, and providing instruction on how to use the various tools and resouces available in the library.
