Attention Faculty: One Button Studio up and running in Trexler Library

From the Provost:

Below are excerpts from an email that Dr. Eric Hagan, Director of DEIT, sent me yesterday:  

“The One Button Studio in Trexler Library is up and running! Right now we are doing scheduled sneak previews for faculty…. Soon faculty, students, and staff will be able to schedule the One Button Studio through the normal library room scheduling system.  Thanks to Deb Malone for the space, Bob Snyder for the money, Marc Albanese and Mike Duffy and crew for getting the room ready, Jim Holton for bringing forth the idea, and especially Mike Yorgey for putting the whole thing together skillfully and within budget.”

My thanks to those listed above and to our faculty, who embrace technology as a tool to improve teaching and learning.

Our DEIT staff is superb.  If you want to have a good chuckle, treat yourself to the One Button Studio Unauthorized Demo at .  But, shhhhhh…don’t tell anybody.

Warm regards, Karen

You are MORE than a like: PACE presentation today, 11/20

Have you ever given thought about what you’re really liking when you click that “like” button on someone’s Facebook picture or status? Many of us are so quick to scroll through social media and click the “like” and/or “favorite”button without even thinking about it.  Why do we allow ourselves to be defined by the amount of likes and/or comments we receive on social media? We need to be reminded that social media does not validates us. You are more than an edited Instagram picture, more than an anonymous Yik Yak post, and more than a retweet or favorite. 

Come out to the PACE (Peers Advising Counseling Educating) presentation “You Are More Than A Like” about social media and self-worth on Friday, November 20 at 2:30PM in Kender/Danko at McShea Student Union. Freshman can earn a CharacterU Point!
