Introduction to Data Wrangling with OpenRefine
 

CSI Digital Sandbox Series:


Preparing data for analysis in any given project often requires more time and labor than the analysis itself. OpenRefine is a free application that can help you clean and normalize your data, transform it from one format to another, and even automate complicated tasks like data validation. In this workshop, we’ll explore some of the basic operations used in OpenRefine to help us work with “messy” data.

Follow the Money: Supporting Your Scholarly Habit
 
The seminar is not about the procedures of writing a grant proposal. The intent is to offer insights rather than advice. The presentation is structured around seven "tips." The tips are the habits of EIU people who have attracted external funding for their interests. More

EIU Online Learning Community (OLC)
 

The OLC is an online community in which we share information and ideas about online teaching and learning throughout the year in a group chat in Teams and meet virtually on the third Wednesday of the month. Even if you are unable to attend the meetings, we encourage you to join the community to receive the information through Teams and participate in the discussion.

Would you like to see how others are using D2L Brightspace and other instructional technologies to create innovative online learning experiences? Would you like to be one of the first to learn about new instructional technologies and updates to existing technologies? What about sharing campus best practices to improve online teaching and learning? The FDIC invites all EIU faculty and staff interested in online teaching and learning to join the EIU Online Learning Community (OLC). The purpose of the EIU OLC is to:

  • Share campus best practices to improve online teaching and learning.
  • See how others are using D2L Brightspace and other instructional technologies to create innovative learning experiences.
  • Inform the community about existing and new web-based instructional technologies including what's new in D2L Brightspace.
  • Leverage expertise, experience, and training resources for D2L Brightspace and other instructional technologies across campus.

Information and ideas will be shared with the community throughout the year in a group chat in Teams. The OLC will also meet virtually through Teams on the third Wednesday of the month from 3:00-4:00 PM. The OLC meetings for Fall 2022 will be September 21, October 19, and November 16. An agenda will be provided with the topics that will be discussed at each meeting and of course there will be time for sharing and Q&A. Even if you are unable to attend the OLC meetings, we encourage you to join the community so you will have access to the information shared in Teams. The meetings will be recorded for community members unable to attend.

Community members will be added to the OLC team in the Teams app for access to the group chat and upcoming meetings. For questions about the EIU OLC, contact Julie Lockett, Director of Learning Innovation at jalockett@eiu.edu.

Make Grading Less Arduous: Podcasts as Learning Activities
 
Given the widespread use of podcasts in society, asking students to produce their own could be engaging for the students and a unique, authentic assessment of their learning. In this seminar, participants will hear from two EIU faculty members currently using podcasts as a learning activity in their courses. They will describe how the podcasting assignment is designed, how it is scaffolded into the course, how it is graded, their experiences using it as an individual and group assignment, and answer participant questions. This workshop is for faculty who have considered (or currently are) using podcasts as a learning activity or who want to enhance the learning activities in their in-person or online courses. This workshop is offered as a hybrid opportunity. A Zoom link will be emailed to all registrants to join in-person or online. More
