Events

ITS is delighted to offer a variety of events, trainings, and workshops throughout the year. These services are available at no charge to the Wesleyan community. Events that are open to students will indicate as much.

  • Compass Workshops

    The Compass Workshop series (formerly known as Academic Technology Roundtable) is the result of a collaboration between the CPI, ITS, and Library Services. The goal of these workshops is to bring faculty and staff together to learn about and discuss the kinds of innovative pedagogies and technological methods their colleagues at Wesleyan are using. Lunch will be served!

     

    Iris Bork-Goldfield, Adjunct Professor of German and Chair, German Studies and Jesse Simmons '21, "A Digital Genealogical Voyage"

    March 4, 2020
    12:15-1:15 PM
    ALLB 311

    A Digital Genealogical Voyage is the story of Albert Alexander who—like some German Jews—arrived on the shores of New York in the mid-nineteenth century only to return to the German Empire shortly after its founding in 1871. Albert was always on the move, from city to city, country to country, and even street to street in both Germany and New York. Therefore, maps are an important element in the telling of his story. This presentation shows how: (a) ArcGIS, a geographic information system, can help enhance telling a family story and; (b) how the collaboration between a student research assistant and professor developed and enhanced the project.
