Talks
9.) Can’t Google that: Tools for deep Web search
12 p.m. - 1 p.m. Oct. 23 Room 204, Bingham Humanities Building
Free
What do you do when Google doesn’t know the answers? Some studies estimate that the so-called “deep Web,” the portion of the Web that isn’t indexed by traditional search engines, is 500 times as large as the rest. With the right tools, you can mobilize that harder-to-access information. This workshop will offer general strategies for finding more information when a line of search inquiry runs cold, a list of discipline-specific resources and guided time to experiment.

10.) Why you need a statement of teaching philosophy and how to develop one
Noon - 1:30 p.m. Oct. 22 Houchens 105
Teaching philosophy statements are valuable personal and professional documents, and increasingly are a requirement in academic job applications. In this workshop, you will be given the opportunity to reflect upon your philosophical approach to teaching and learning by examining sample teaching philosophy statements, learn strategies for writing a successful statement and be given time to begin work on your own statement. Graduate students can find more information and register at PLAN.
