IUPUI ePortfolio Symposium
When: Friday, September 30, 2016 9:30 AM
Where: UL Lilly Auditorium (UL 0130)

More than half of US colleges and universities have adopted ePortfolios to enhance teaching and learning, foster student personal and career development, and support assessment of student learning At IUPUI, ePortfolio use has more than doubled in the last four years. In a forthcoming book, George Kuh will recognize ePortfolios as an 11th High-Impact Practice (HIP)--the first new HIP to be added since he published the original list of 10 in 2008.

The 2016 IUPUI ePortfolio Symposium will focus on new experience with the benefits of ePortfolios locally and nationally. Keynote speaker Dr. Daniel Terry, Director of ePortfolio at Texas Christian University, will discuss "Naming the Why of ePortfolio Work: Implicating Students in Their Own Learning." Dr. Catherine Buyarski, Associate Dean of University College, will describe the model of student development underlying IUPUI's Electronic Personal Development Plan (EPDP) as increasing numbers of students create EPDPs in the First-Year Seminar and beyond. Other IUPUI faculty presenters will report on new graduate and undergraduate ePortfolio projects in schools across the campus, and several award-winning students will discuss their experiences in creating ePortfolios.

Plan now to join IUPUI colleagues to consider how ePortfolios reinforce IUPUI's strategic directions and might benefit your own programs and students.

Lunch will be provided, but you must register to participate. The registration deadline is Friday, September 23.

This is the second workshop in a series of four designed to help faculty increase the impact of their work. Once you have created an online profile, the next steps are to share your work, connect it to your profile, and engage with your readers. There are many options for sharing your work to increase its reach. This session will help you choose the tools that are right for you. We will demonstrate how these tools work with online profiles and sources of citation and altmetrics (the topic of the third workshop).

Reading at the Table/From Jack Johnson to LeBron James: Sports, Media, and the Color Line
When: Wednesday, October 19, 2016 11:30 AM
Where: University Club at Indianapolis (850 W. Michigan St., Room 200, Indianapolis, IN 46202)

The campaign for racial equality in sports has both reflected and affected the campaign for racial equality in the United States. Some of the most significant and publicized stories in this campaign in the twentieth century have happened in sports, including, of course, Jackie Robinson in baseball; Jesse Owens, Tommie Smith, and John Carlos in track; Arthur Ashe in tennis; and Jack Johnson, Joe Louis, and Muhammad Ali in boxing. Long after the full integration of college and professional athletics, race continues to play a major role in sports. Not long ago, sportswriters and sportscasters ignored racial issues. They now contribute to the public’s evolving racial attitudes on issues both on and off the field, ranging from integration to self-determination to masculinity.

From Jack Johnson to LeBron James examines the intersection of sports, race, and the media in the twentieth century and beyond. The essays are linked by a number of questions, including: How did the black and white media differ in content and context in their reporting of these stories? How did the media acknowledge race in their stories? Did the media recognize these stories as historically significant? Considering how media coverage has evolved over the years, the essays begin with the racially charged reporting of Jack Johnson’s reign as heavyweight champion and carry up to the present, covering the media narratives surrounding the Michael Vick dogfighting case in a supposedly post-racial era and the media’s handling of LeBron James’s announcement to leave Cleveland for Miami.
