Visual Resource Collection Workshops

Monday, August 10th, 2009

You’ve heard us mention the Visual Resources Collection on the blog before, but now, we’re excited to announce that we’ll be offering VRC workshops for WSU faculty.

The introduction to the VRC workshop for faculty will be offered on two dates: Wednesday, 19th from 12:30-1:50 pm and Tuesday, August 25th from 1:00 – 2:00 pm in Lab A on the first floor of the Undergraduate Library. The workshop will include learning how to create, manage, and copy media groups; Export image files and presentations to PowerPoint; How to use Flickr to supplement presentations; Professors will be provided an extra lesson how to use VRC to aid in teaching and learning.

For more information please call the TRC at (313)-577-1980 and direct all calls to Jon McGlone. To register for the workshops send an e-mail to jwmcglone@wayne.edu indicating which day you would like to attend along with your name, contact information, and department.

Student walk-in workshops are in the works but will be provided at a later date in the fall semester. They will not be required to register for the workshop and location may change from the faculty workshop. Students, keep an eye out for emails and notices on Pipeline and your classroom Blackboard messages from professors on when the student workshops will be available.

For those not able to make the workshops, the Technology Resource Center will be developing instructional videos to provide a step – by – step process on how to interact with the Luna software and make use of the tools available. The videos will not be available until about early – mid fall semester.
