Study Abroad Fair – Jan. 30, Cougar Mall

By Office of the Provost
Posted on 29 January 2019 | 3:18 pm — 

Join us Wednesday, January 30 from 10 AM to 2 PM in Cougar Mall to learn about CofC Faculty-led programs at the Study Abroad Fair hosted by the Center for International Education.

Open educational resources (OER) are classroom resources with no copyright restrictions. They are in the public domain, licensed through the Creative Commons (or similar intellectual property licenses) or library-licensed, so students can access them at little or no cost. Textbook prices are rising rapidly, putting enormous financial strain on students. OER can help mitigate textbook expenses for students and also provide instructors with pedagogical advantages, since they are more adaptable than traditional textbooks. In order to encourage faculty to integrate OER materials in their courses, the OER Faculty Incentive Program will award grants of $750 to instructors selected by the campus OER Committee. Faculty who are awarded OER incentive grants will integrate OER into their fall 2019 course(s). The deadline for submission of applications is February 15, 2019. For more information and to apply, go to http://academicaffairs.cofc.edu/research/index.php#oer.

 

Dr. Godfrey Gibbison, Associate Professor of Economics and Dean of the School of Professional Studies, will also serve as Interim Dean of the Graduate School.

The 2018-2019 College Reads! book selection is The Hate U Give  by Angie Thomas (HarperCollins, 2017).

Incoming students received a copy of the book and an interactive Reading Guide. Students were asked to prepare for Convocation by reading the book and selecting one Convocation Project to complete and submit during their small group discussion. Author Angie Thomas will be on campus Monday, January 14, 2019. This is a change from the previously advertised date in mid-October. The feature film based on the book is scheduled for wide release on October 19.  Angie Thomas will be attending several film premier events that week, including one in her hometown of Jackson, Mississippi. We look forward to her campus visit in January!  Her public lecture will be at 7:00pm on 1/14/19 in Sottile Theatre. Stay tuned for more details.
