WINDOWS XP AND YOU
MONDAY, APRIL 21
Have you been or will you soon be upgraded to Windows XP? Share your questions and comments about the upgrade with the ETS Training Team. Feel free to bring examples. This is an information gathering session. If time allows, your questions will be addressed. Other issues will be the basis of future Brown Bag Lunch Sessions and training classes. Help us meet your future training needs! Facilitated by Terry Keys, director, ETS Instructional Technologies, and ETS Training Team members.
PLAGIARISM IN THE ONLINE ERA
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 23
The Internet has made plagiarism and cheating easier than ever, and it seems that more and more students are taking advantage of the technology to engage in academic dishonesty. Celia Reaves, chairperson, Department of Psychology, will share insights from a recent online course about plagiarism online, including a list of best practices and a suggestion for policy changes that have been shown to reduce dishonesty in institutions similar to ours.
HEAR YE, HEAR YE: XP IS HERE…YEA!!!
FRIDAY, APRIL 25
The goal of this session is to provide a summary of what’s new in Microsoft Windows XP. The session will include a multimedia tour of XP, hitting the highlights. Participants will be shown how to find the tour and some other items that are available to them right on their own computers to use. The following people should attend: 1) prospective users who want a quick overview of what to expect when XP arrives on their desk, and 2) current users who are functioning but want insight on what else is new that they have not “discovered” yet. Facilitated by Martha Kendall, ETS Instructional Technologies.
