Diversity Task Force: Inclusivity Tip #4

The recent presidential election has heightened our opportunity for conversation with students on issues of diversity. The CPS Diversity Taskforce shares information in support of an inclusive college. UW Extension has provided some excellent resources you can utilize in your classrooms.
On a campus note, several outstanding events are taking place. The chancellor is holding listening sessions with students, faculty and staff. Diversity Council is starting listening sessions for the campus once a month, starting in December. The search for a director of the Center of Inclusive Teaching and Learning is nearing completion.  

CPS is a family. Like all families we don’t always agree, but we’re there for one another and for that we can be thankful. As we break to celebrate Thanksgiving, may we continue to look for ways to support all of our family members in the college and on campus.

Marty's Message

by guest writer Kristi Roth

It is an exciting time in the Center for Collaborative and Interactive Technologies (CCIT). We now have a lightboard, which allows users to write on glass while recording a presentation and it looks like they are writing in the air. See a demo and ideas for use.
We also recently adopted a robot! This robot can be controlled by anyone, from anywhere. Watch Dean Loy as he took the robot for its first outing into Joan North Place where he rolled around and talked to students. This can be great for remote or place-bound students or class guests. Please help us name our robot by suggesting names on our Facebook page or Twitter with #UWSProbot.
We also encourage you to check out our green screen. Prof. Mary Jae Kleckner discovered this is a great tool for an oral communication assignment and the Department of World Languages and Literatures is using it to engage its students in language practice.
Stop by the CCIT or send me an email to explore these and many more engaging tools for innovative instruction.
Kristi Roth, Ph.D.,
Director of Technology Innovation in Teaching and Learning
