The Story
  
  
  

Calling all Faculty and Graduate Teaching Assistants who want to improve their course design skills and/or Canvas knowledge. The Online Readiness Course (ORC) begins January 8th.  This course rigorously explores all the Canvas tools necessary to take a course you have already taught in a face-to-face environment and redesign it with the online learner in mind.

As a student in ORC, you will progress through the following Modules:

  1. Module 1: Orientation. Checking your tech prerequisites; getting to know each other; introducing the Principles of Online Pedagogy (POP) framework.
  2. Module 2: Designing Your Environment. Your classroom is a place, not a filing cabinet! Careful user experience (UX) design helps your online space actively encourage student engagement.
  3. Module 3: Designing Your Content. From pedagogical considerations like active learning and universal design, to tech considerations like choosing appropriate media types, this module focuses on creating course content that fits the online environments you're using.
  4. Module 4: Interacting. Instructor presence and community-building are important, and work differently online than in a physical space. Developing your presence and baseline habits is crucial to success.
  5. Module 5: Revising, Iterating, and Troubleshooting. Responding quickly and effectively to the unexpected is a critical skill for any online instructor.

There are no texts to purchase. All readings, media and all other required materials will be provided within the course!

Each Assignment contains the materials required for you to complete it successfully. In addition, every Module contains further readings to deepen your understanding of the principles and practices you've encountered. At the end of the course, you will be awarded a Digital Badge through our Hornet Badges portal.

Please email Dr. Anna Catterson acatters@emporia.edu if interested in enrolling!

The IT Security team would like to share five simple steps you can take to help protect yourself online and enjoy the holiday season with peace of mind:

  1. Keep clean machines: Make sure your devices are free of viruses and malware before you shop. Download ESU's free antivirus software here.
  2. Lock down your login: Safeguard your online shopping, email and banking accounts by creating passphrases or enabling two-factor authentication. Learn more here.
  3. Conduct research: Before you shop, research the websites you are going to use. Read reviews and pay attention to other people's experiences with the company. Pay special attention to the URL of popular sites. For example, criminals may create a fraudulent site called www.shop-amazon.com instead of the legitimate www.amazon.com.
  4. When in doubt, throw it out: Be especially cautious with emails about problems with your credit card or account or status of an online order. Pay special attention to ads that offer discounts too good to be true. If you're not sure whether an email you received is legitimate, contact the ESU IT Helpdesk at 620-341-5555 or helpdesk@emporia.edu.
  5. Your information is like money. Value it. Protect it.: Be alert to the information being collected about you - remember you only have to fill out the required fields at checkout. Your personal information has value, just like money.  

To learn more, view the full holiday shopping tip sheet here. Happy holidays!

​Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday, and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday, November 28th, kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.

I'm looking for current students that want to help share on your personal social media and/or RSO pages about #GivingTuesday on November 28th. You will be sharing out a crowdfunding page that supports the Student Foundation fund, whose mission is to help peers in need through an emergency scholarship. This is peers helping peers and we need you! If we get 50 current students to get involved on this day, we have a donor that will give $2,500 to help students in emergency situations at ESU!

It's easy, just visit http://givingtuesday-esu-stufo.everydayhero.do/, click "start fundraising" you will create a page and share it out. For the first 75 students that receive one or more gifts on their fundraising page they will receive a cool "Corky Cares" t-shirt to promote being a philanthropic leader.

The purpose of this project is to provide our Health Promotion students with experience in analyzing a clients' diet and physical activity. The primary goal for our students will be to provide you with an accurate analysis of your current eating habits as well as suggestions for making improvements to your diet, if any are warranted.  Additionally, your physical activity will be analyzed, simply in terms of caloric expenditure. This will be useful in determining your daily caloric needs which are important if you are wishing to lose or gain weight, or even just remain at your current weight.  

In order to participate in this project, you will simply be required to commit to keeping a Food Diary for seven consecutive days, as well as a simple record of physical activity.

If you are interested, please contact Dr. Paul Luebbers at pluebber@emporia.edu.

The Intensive English Program (IEP) is still seeking at least 10 volunteers to be conversation partners with international students. ​

Conversation partners is a program that pairs international students with fluent English speakers to give the international student a chance to practice conversational English. The program also builds connections within the ESU community.

Conversation partners meet for at least one hour each week for casual conversation. The two partners choose the time and place for their meetings, which means that it's easy to fit the conversation around your normal schedule. Conversation partners are not required to tutor. You just have to have an informal conversation for one hour each week.

Students, faculty, and staff are all welcome to be conversation partners. All fluent English speakers are welcome, which means English does not have to be your first language. As long as you are fluent in English, you can be a conversation partner.

To sign up to be a conversation partner or for more information, email iep@emporia.edu or stop by the IEP office in Roosevelt Hall room 113.

The Wichita local section of the American Chemical Society will be meeting at Emporia State University on Friday, October 6, in the PKP room in Memorial Union.  A pasta dinner ($7 students, $11 others) will be served at 6:30 PM, followed by a free presentation by Professor Emeritus Paul Philp from the University of Oklahoma at 7:30 PM.  Dr. Philp will present "The Fracking Revolution in the Oil and Gas Business and its Implications from both the Environmental and Energy Perspectives."  Guests may attend the talk without joining us for dinner, but those who intend to come for the meal should RSVP to Diane Nutbrown at dnutbrow@emporia.edu before 5 PM on Friday, September 29.

The abstract is as follows:

Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking as it is more commonly known, has become a despised term in many quarters, but most people do not look at both sides of the process but simply see it as a blessing or a curse. In my opinion it can be both but there is a need for better communication on both sides and not the general mass hysteria that accompanies such discussion. In this presentation I will try and outline some of the issues on both sides of the argument. These are simply my opinions backed up as far as possible by published data.

               First a little history, not many people realize that the first patent for fracking was issued back in the 1850s during the Civil War and applied to water wells to improve supply of fresh water for the soldiers. There were various attempts at fracking oil and gas wells during the 1920s and 30s with limited success. After that in the 50s and 60s many vertical wells were successful fracked with little attention from people outside the industry. However it was in the 1990s and the first decade of this century that fracking started to gain attention. The first big shale gas development was in the Fort Worth Basin, TX. Mitchell Energy desperate to find gas in the basin finally successfully developed the technique of horizontal drilling around 2000 after many failed and expensive attempts. The real breakthrough coming with the combination of horizontal drilling and fracking leading to significant gas production from the Barnett and later many oil source rocks long thought to be past prime.

               So what are the major environmental problems? The first is the water issue-fracking a well requires large amounts of fresh water, a precious resource in states such as Texas, Oklahoma and California where there are steady droughts and water could be used for other purposes. This issue is being addressed and alternative techniques are being developed. Second the concern that gas will get in water wells. This has been happening in oil and gas producing regions for years and has not been shown to cause health issues. Numerous papers were published a few years back suggesting fracking was responsible for this and these papers were later found to be false and some were retracted. Third chemicals from the fracking operation will get into the aquifers and water wells. This is indeed a concern but many studies have shown a limited number of occurrences and few health related incidents. Fourth-damage to the environment in rural areas. That is a problem, huge storage pits have to be dug for water storage and new roads for rig transport. Fifth earthquakes are another big problem but not directly related to the fracking. The earthquakes are caused by disposal wells where salty formation water is reinjected into very deep formations, subsequently causing the earthquakes.

               Finally I think one has to ask the question why would the oil companies want to intentionally fracture the ground water aquifers? By doing so they would only produce water and that is not their goal.

​ESU Theatre's production of "Family Furniture" by A.R. Gurney plays tonight through Saturday at 7:30 PM!

"Family Furniture" was inspired by Gurney's own life and the culture of the 1950's when he was a young adult. The show focuses on a young adult brother and sister pair who must come to terms with traumatic events going on in their family. The potential of a mother's infidelity and a father's apathy threatens to divide a seemingly normal, nuclear family in a society where keeping up with appearances can be more important than honesty.

"Family Furniture" will play in the Ronald Q. Frederickson Theatre at 7:30 PM September 26 – 30 with an additional matinee performance at 2:00 PM on September 30. Emporia State University.

Depression is a major factor in academic problems.  It is listed as the 4th leading reason (from an ESU survey) students don't do well academically (after stress, anxiety, and sleep problems by). We want to reach out to as many students as possible so we can connect with those who are experiencing depression, anxiety, or other mental health issues that are interfering with daily functioning.

Faculty:

Many faculty offer extra credit to students who participate. Offering extra credit in classes has been proven to be the best incentive to get students to participate in the Depression Screening. I believe we are lucky on this campus to have so many faculty members partner with Counseling Services in this endeavor. Please ask your teachers if they are offering extra credit in your classes.

Logistics:

When: October 2, 3, and 4th, between 10:00-2:00 pm

Where: Memorial Union 2nd floor (Ballroom Monday and Tuesday, lobby on Wednesday)

What happens: Students complete a questionnaire and meet individually with a counselor or counseling intern for 5-10 minutes. An appointment for later counseling can be made if needed. Students are then given an extra credit ticket, signed by the counselor, to give to those faculty who are partnering with Counseling Services.

Side Note:

Emporia State University has one of the best attended Depression Screenings nationally. This is in part to the commitment ESU has to our students' success. I want to thank all who have joined in this effort in the past and encourage more to join in. If you are planning on giving extra credit in your classes, it would help to know how many students you are offering it to. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call me at 341-5222 or emailing me.

Redefining Realness: My Path to Womanhood, Identity, Love and So Much More by Janet Mock


In her profound and courageous New York Times bestseller, Janet Mock establishes herself as a resounding and inspirational voice for the transgender community—and anyone fighting to define themselves on their own terms.

With unflinching honesty and moving prose, Janet Mock relays her experiences of growing up young, multiracial, poor, and trans in America, offering readers accessible language while imparting vital insight about the unique challenges and vulnerabilities of a marginalized and misunderstood population. Though undoubtedly an account of one woman's quest for self at all costs, Redefining Realness is a powerful vision of possibility and self-realization, pushing us all toward greater acceptance of one another—and of ourselves—showing as never before how to be unapologetic and real.

When: Tuesdays: October 3rd, 10th, 24th & November 7th | 5:00PM-6:00PM |

Where: Diversity Lounge, MU


Be sure to sign up to reserve your copy of the book today!
