“Transfer Ready, Major Ready”—How to get there from here-- Welcome to the new Transfer Web site!

The Educational Planning & Advising/Transfer Center has a brand new Web site to help advisors and our students navigate the transfer process while they are at Highline.

When should students start their transfer planning?
Need UW major preparation worksheets? How about a transfer checklist? How do I sign up for a faculty advisor? How can I locate the AA planning sheet on the Web?
This poster session will showcase all of the exciting resources that are available to help advisors empower and guide students in their transfer planning.

The web pages highlight helpful tools designed to make the transition to a baccalaureate college smoother: major preparation information, transfer checklist, selecting the right college, transfer tips and more!

Being There:  collaborating with faculty where we’re at

 Recognition is the watchword:  Recognizing the meaning, role, and importance of information literacy; recognizing our particular skills and opportunities for incorporating information literacy into the academic process; recognizing the teaching moments where librarians and teaching faculty can collaboratively enhance information literacy in the curriculum.   

This poster session comprises a narrative of collaborative experiences, formal and informal.  This session discusses strategies that have worked, more or less, over the last academic year:

  • Core example -- A quarter long, faculty/librarian collaborative incorporation of information literacy into the syllabus of an interdisciplinary Sociology and Writing course utilizing such tools as document-based exam questions, and weekly research training sessions
  • Supplementary examples – Several efforts at faculty/librarian collaboration, including
    • one-on-one and small-group office visits to discuss IL content of specific assignments
    • presentations at faculty department meetings
    • faculty training sessions (or at least the attempt to make them happen)
    • a for-credit co-ordinated study course with Business Tech faculty
  • Personal experiment – Bates also teaches humanities courses and as such I am experimenting with incorporating IL into my syllabi.  I consider this process, highlighting what seems workable from an instructor’s perspective.

Improving Student Group Presentations
You can help students put together group presentations that are creative and exciting for both the participants and the audience with a professional flair. Using communication and public speaking theories, group discussion and problem solving strategies, and group development milestones and timelines, students are able to quickly research and prepare topics in a guided approach for an effective presentation with confidence. This guided approach prepares students for both impromptu group presentations or quarter-long group projects while helping them to develop skills for both academic and business presentations.

Angi Caster & Marc Lentini It's only a game?  The Implications of Videogames for Pedagogy
Literature 220, spring 2005, was "Videogames as Contemporary Literature," and the success of that course in terms of student production, retention and critical thinking has huge implications for assumptions we make about traditional methods of assessment, rigor, student sophistication and subject matter. The course also offers pedagogical insights that we can learn from the world of computer games. Come see the results.  Proposal document
