​Calling all faculty who want to improve their course design skills and/or Canvas knowledge. The Online Readiness Course (ORC) begins September 11th and ends on October 13th. 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.

There are 3 main components to the course:

  • Best practices in online pedagogy and androgogy
  • Advanced Canvas tools and Analytics
  • Course design

In addition, you will get to experience being a fully-online learner and educator using Canvas.

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!​

​We are pleased to share that Don Hill, former Kansas state representative, is ESU's new government relations consultant beginning today. Don served seven terms in the Kansas House of Representatives during which he was a strong advocate for Emporia State, higher education and K-12 education.

Don was awarded the ESU's University Service Citation in 2014 and has served on the ESU President's Community Advisory Council and the ESU Foundation Board of Trustees.​

He moves into government relations for ESU as Brian Denton moves to the Office of Institutional Research and Assessment as coordinator of institutional effectiveness.

Due to reductions in personnel we are looking at ways to stretch our staff to continue to offer the services we currently provide.  We will be implementing a reduction of frequency we will be picking up trash in private offices.  Currently we pick up every day.  We will begin picking up trash in private offices once a week when this is implemented.  We will continue to pick up trash in all public spaces (classrooms, department main office, meeting rooms, labs, etc.) every day.    If you need trash picked up from your private office at other times simply put it outside your door and it will be picked up as we pass through.  Or take it to a trash can that is serviced every day.  We regret that we cannot continue to provide daily service to private offices.  We hope this will have a minimal impact on the overall service we provide but will keep our attention to the public spaces that require daily service.

Building Services supervisors and management will be contacting each department to discuss this change.  Implementation will start no sooner than June 1, 2017.  We appreciate your understanding on how we address personnel reductions while maintaining expectations.

Thank you.

Do you need the OnBase Unity Client?  If you only click the link in your email to get to OnBase, then you don't need the Unity client – the email links open the Web Client.  But if you work often in OnBase here are some advantages to the Unity Client:

·It does not time you out when creating a long document.

·Self-updating when there is a new version.

·Power users can have multiple windows open at once (Document Retrieval, Upload, Workflow...).

·Home ribbon similar to Office products

·Sorting and personalization options

·Most people who import and scan don't need the "thick" client any more.

 

Installation instructions and FACs are at the bottom of www.emporia.edu/onbase.  There is also a fabulous video for new and seasoned users of Unity Client here.  And more useful documentation on our documentation tab. ​

Note:  Mac users can use OnBase Unity Client via SkyLab.  For now, Form Cs must be submitted with the Web Client.

Your Emporia State baseball team is in a good position to host the NCAA Division II Central Regional Tournament May 18-22.  The Hornet Athletic Department is seeking volunteers that are interesting in helping out with various aspects of running the tournament – ushers, foul ball chasers, gate watchers, etc.  Since this is an NCAA event, there will be a charge for admittance to everyone, including ESU students, however workers will be given a pass to the games.

This could be a great way to get some hours for community service!!

If you are interested or have questions, please email Zak King at zking@emporia.edu by Monday, May 15.​

​The Flint Hills Community Health Center has confirmed that an ESU student has a probable case of mumps. Emporia State's Student Wellness Center is working closely with FHCHC's public health nurse, who will directly notify anyone who may have been in close contact with the student.

It is important for the campus and surrounding community to be aware of the symptoms of mumps and how the disease is spread.

According to the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, mumps is an acute viral infection transmitted through coughing, sneezing or talking; sharing cups or utensils; or touching objects or surfaces freshly soiled by infected respiratory secretions. Symptoms start with body aches, loss of appetite, fatigue, headache and low-grade fever — eventually progressing to swollen salivary glands on one or both sides. Symptoms usually appear 16-18 days after being infected, and mumps can be spread to others any time from two days before to five days after the onset of swelling.

For more information on mumps, visit www.cdc.gov/mumps.

Immunization for mumps is part of the Measles, Mumps, Rubella vaccine. As you prepare to leave campus and return home, we encourage you to check your immunization status and get up to date as needed.

Students with symptoms — even if they have received both doses of MMR vaccine — should call the Student Wellness Center at 620-341-5222 and ask to speak with a nurse before they visit the center. ​

ESU wants to hear from you! Please take the 20-minute, online, confidential Tomorrow’s Teachers Speak Upsurvey this week! We are participating in this national research project being led by Project Tomorrow and look forward to what you have to say about what you are leaning and what you are expecting from your future teaching career.

Each year, more principals say they are looking for new teachers to start with a particular set of technology skills. Project Tomorrow wants to know how the next generation of teachers is preparing for that challenge and what YOU are expecting when it comes to technology in your future classroom. (Here’s what last year’s first year teachers told Speak Up: http://bit.ly/1stYearTs )​

The national data findings will be used to inform national policies on technology use in education, teacher preparation programs and K-12 school and district leaders on the aspirations of tomorrow’s teachers. And, we want to use your feedback to inform the work we are doing on campus.

 

Please Speak Up today! Get started at this linkhttp://www.speakup4schools.org/TomorrowsTeachers/
