Blended Learning Lunch 11/6 -- Topic: Turnitin

The CIP held its monthly Blended Learning Lunch on Wednesday November 6th.  Director Murphy's email announcing this event generated a small flurry of an email thread discussing the merits of and whether we should even use the online service that was the topic of discussion for our lunch: Turnitin.  There are indeed some controversial issues surrounding Turnitin, and the Kenyon faculty members who have raised these issues are not alone in the broader academic world.  Our lunch was billed as an opportunity to see demonstrations of Turnitin's plagiarism detection and grading too

Video Lectures and Flipped Classes: Notes in the Raw

These  notes come from Simon Garcia (SG) who also attended the Video Lectures and Flipped Classes faculty panel discussion.  In the interest of time , which I am short on, I will not "flesh out" these notes like I did for my earlier post -- um, by the way, those earlier notes came from Joe Murphy (JM).  These notes are "raw" except I have added information to explain Simon's shorthand, which he can correct me on if he wants to do so.  I also made one correction -- the question by DK at the end was erroneously attributed to KR.
