Working with international artists and designers Maja Kuzmanovic and Nik Gaffney of FoAM, the Desert Humanities initiative at ASU is hosting a desert ecology listening salon at Hayden Library.

Kuzmanovic and Gaffney traveled the desert in two years of site visits with ASU’s D.A.R.E. team collecting artifacts and sounds. From these experiences, they have created a desert sounds vinyl album and series of accompanying images for the salon. Further books, maps and images are supplied by the Hayden Library and its archives. 

Thanks goes to the Global Institute of Sustainability, the Institute for Humanities Research and the Center for Philosophical Technologies for assisting in funding this initial salon, and thanks to Hayden Library and its dedicated staff for space and creative research.

An opening reception will be held at 5:30 p.m. Sept. 23, and the salon will run through Dec. 7 in the Hayden Library.

Part of the Graduate Scholars Toolkit, this one-hour workshop will encourage you to engage with primary sources as an interdisciplinary scholarly research tool and to develop these skills by utilizing the resources available through the ASU Library. You will learn fundamental archives terminology, discuss common barriers in accessing archival materials, explore strategies to overcome these barriers, and discover how you can apply primary source inquiry into your academic endeavors.

The Graduate Scholars Toolkit workshop series is a way for ASU students to connect with the tools and information they need to succeed in graduate school. Workshops are offered on all campuses at various times throughout the semester, with more online offerings to come.

Join the ASU Library Map and Geospatial Hub for this two-hour workshop on printing geographical 3D models.

This hands-on workshop will explore three types of geographical 3D models thus far experimented with: (1) physiographic (topographic landscapes); (2) cityscapes (built environment meso-scale); (3) building and landscape architectures (built environment micro-scale). In all three of these instances, the primary data inputs will be publicly-available geospatial datasets.

We'll explore both web-based data extraction services that quickly provide appropriate data for 3D printing, as well as raw data that requires some basic pre-processing in a free, open source geographic information system (GIS) software application called QGIS.

Twenty desktop computer workstations are available for this workshop. Alterntatively, participants can perform the workshop activities using their personal laptop computers. 

Participants intending to use their own computers may want to pre-install the free software needed to follow along with workshop activities:

  1. QGIS: http://www.qgis.org/en/site/forusers/download.html
  2. Meshlab: http://www.meshlab.net/
  3. Makerbot Printhttps://www.makerbot.com/print/

Please see the full calendar of Map and Geospatial Hub events.

Come explore the best and worst practices for growing OER on your own turf!

In 2013, Maricopa Community Colleges began a strategic district-wide initiative to cut down the cost of a college education for Arizona students. 

By encouraging and providing support for instructors to locate, adopt and create open and no-cost educational materials and textbooks, the Maricopa Millions Open Educational Resources Project was born, saving students more than $11 million in its first five years.  

Now a nationally renowned leader in the open education movement, the Maricopa Millions Project has partnered with Arizona State University to offer faculty and instructors the opportunity to learn from the project’s expertise.  

ASU faculty and instructors are invited to attend a seven-part workshop series called “Exploring the World of Open Education.”  

The workshops cover a variety of topics: open education, copyright and open licensing, finding and reusing open resources, creating your own open educational resources (OERs) and designing renewable assignments.  

Those who attend all seven workshops will receive an “OER Practitioner” certificate from the Maricopa Millions Project.  

To learn more and/or register, check out the complete workshop schedule
