Session II (Breakouts) 10:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.

Session A: EMS Introduction and Training | Joshua Akkerman
EMS will be the new way of booking conference spaces and rooms at CSB/SJU. In this session we will introduce you to the platform, review how to make bookings, and how you can get access to the EMS Web Application.

Session B: The HIVE - Training for Faculty Advisors | Mary Beth Thompson
While there are many ways The HIVE can be used, there are specific tools and features that Faculty Advisors should be familiar with to best support students at CSB/SJU. Attend to learn about features and tools used by the Faculty Advisor as well as a few features you want to guide your advisees towards using within The HIVE. This session assumes that you understand The HIVE and that you have completed setting up your profile prior to attending the session.

Session C: Microsoft OneDrive | Cathy Robak
Microsoft OneDrive will be replacing staff and faculty M Drives. OneDrive is a place where you can share documents, edit documents with others, and access them from anywhere. Come to this session and see how OneDrive works. Find out how to create, edit, and share documents and how to access your documents through the web or explorer view.

Session D: Multimodal Podcast Assignments | Karen Erickson and Pedro dos Santos
In this session, Karen and Pedro will share how they have collaborated with Instructional Technology and Library colleagues to create podcast assignments in their Learning Foundation and Theology/Humanities courses. Goals of podcast and other multimodal assignments can strengthen students' critical thinking skills and their understanding of their own voice, engage students in intellectual inquiry in new ways, and enhance their skills as listeners and media consumer. 

Adam and Ethan will be on hand to talk about how Instructional Technology supports educational technology. There will be time for quetions and brainstorming on how to use Podcasts in your class.

Session C: Hive - Raising Alerts and What Happens Next | Mary Beth Thompson
A session to dive into what happens when Alerts (flags, referrals, high fives, and to-do items) are created using the HIVE. What is the intended work-flow once an alert has been raised for a student? We will talk about what alerts to raise when and review the ideal work-flow process for each type of alert. We will look at what instructors, faculty advisors and others in the support network can do to support the student and communicate with the flag raiser when they have been in contact with students about concerns raised the HIVE as well as when to clear an alert.

Session B: Portfolium | Cathy Robak
Portfolium is an academic portfolio network allowing students to showcase their education and work accomplishments and connect with other professionals. A Portfolium profile allows you to organize and display previous educational and professional content. Integrations Curriculum students will be required to create a Portfolium site. E-portfolios are a high-impact practice which allow students to collect work and reflect on what they have learned as they move through their education. Portfolium integrates with Canvas, so professors can build assignments/rubrics and grade. In this training session learn how to add an assignment that is connected to Portfolium, how the students access it and how Portfolium works from the student side.

Session C: Digital Humanities Roundtable
This is an informal roundtable about Digital Humanities. Three history faculty, Shannon Smith, Elisabeth Wengler, and Britttany Merritt will share how they integrated it into their pedagogy. We plan to share some simple tools that can be used in almost any class such as Adobe Spark, Story Maps, and working with data. We hope this session will spark conversation about Digital Humanities and how this concept can be integrated into teaching in CSB/SJU.
