Are you curious about leading a study abroad trip but aren’t sure where to start? Do you wonder how much work these trips actually involve? Are you interested in proposing a study abroad program but are not sure how the process works?
If so, please attend our faculty-led study abroad proposal roundtable on Tuesday, September 15 at 3:30 in Cochran 303. Light refreshments will be provided.
MUW faculty who have led study abroad trips successfully in the past and Study Abroad Coordinator Erinn Holloway will be there to answer your questions and share tips. The intent of this roundtable is to get MUW faculty more involved in thinking about leading study abroad programs and, ultimately, to increase the number of MUW students that participate in international programs.

Are you frustrated and disappointed when you discover a case of plagiarism while grading? Take a proactive stance against plagiarism in your classroom by developing writing assignments that discourage plagiarism from the start. After understanding why students plagiarize in the first place we will discuss tried and true methods to make your assignments more plagiarism-resistant while simultaneously increasing their impact on student learning. This workshop will be helpful for any faculty members who assign student writing and especially for those who have relied upon plagiarism detection software through Blackboard in the past since no such software will be available in Canvas.
Learn how to use Respondus software to create and manage exam questions in Canvas. With Respondus you can create your exam questions in the familiar MS Word format and import them into Canvas in batches without laboriously re-entering the information for each individual question. You can also seamlessly import questions from publisher-generated question banks. Using this program could save you hours of labor if you regularly offer online tests or quizzes. Make use of our campus-wide license and create question banks from the comfort of your home or office computer.
