A hundred years ago, in communities across the U.S., white residents forced thousands of black families to flee their homes. Even a century later, these towns remain almost entirely white. BANISHED tells the story of three of these communities and their black descendants, who return to learn their shocking histories.

In Forsyth County, Georgia, where a thousand black residents were expelled, the film explores the question of land fraudulently taken, and follows some descendants in their quest to uncover the real story of their family's land. In Pierce City, Missouri, a man has designed his own creative form of reparation—he wishes to disinter the remains of his great-grandfather, who was buried there before the banishment. And in Harrison, Arkansas, home to the headquarters of the Ku Klux Klan, a white community struggles with their town's legacy of hate.

Have you ever wondered just how savvy your techno-wizard students are? Professors Jorge Perez and Meg Murray developed the TEaCH Workshops for faculty and staff from their popular IT literacy course CSIS 2101 Computers and Your World. Three modules comprise the course: 1) hardware and operating systems, 2) productivity software, and 3) networks, the Internet and information literacy. The TEaCH workshop touches on these areas, covering topics such as RSS feeds, wikis, Windows basics, BIOS settings, privacy and wireless security. Attend this workshop and you will work more effectively with your computer and learn more about the growing digital divide between faculty and students.

One of the most exciting developments for educators is the recent emergence in popularity and affordability of multi-user virtual environments (MUVEs) to facilitate collaboration, simulation, and experientially based learning. Of the leading platforms, Second Life has gained early popularity among educators, researchers, and institutions. Second Life offers many opportunities for educators proficient enough in virtual environments to develop and lead experiences. However, mastering Second Life can be a challenge.

Join us for the Exploring Second Life Basics for Educators web conference to build a foundation for further exploration of virtual worlds. You will gain a broad understanding of the educational potential of Second Life and be offered a streamlined approach for gaining sufficient mastery of virtual worlds to begin designing effective learning experiences.

This session is designed to explore ways faculty can provide evidence of the quality and significance of their administration and leadership activities. Documenting the administration and leadership activities are often seen as more challenging than documenting effective teaching or research and creative activity. Because the new KSU tenure and promotion guidelines require that such evidence be provided by faculty with administrative duties who are considered for tenure and promotion, this session is intended to address ways this might be accomplished. Participants will discuss what is meant by the quality and significance of the administration and leadership, and how it might be documented in the realm of faculty roles in the institution, in our disciplines, and in the external community.

At this time in history when the survival of the planet depends on global community and understanding, the United States has to assess the racism that is under the radar, yet drives policy that has a global reach.

Robert Jensen, a white journalist and professor, looks at racism in American "polite society." Drawing on his own experience, on theory, and on data, he "reaches white readers where they live." Jensen encourages an honest look at the "pathological nature of white privilege." Join Dede Yow and Darren Crovitz for an energizing discussion of this honest and important book.

There are more slaves today than at any other time in human history: 27 million slaves, 80% of them women and children. We will show the film: "Not for Sale" and have a dialogue discussion after the film. This film depicts seven examples of ways in which modern day slaves are exploited. It provides statistics on human trafficking (a $30 billion a year industry) and the 1 million children who are forced into prostitution each year. We will discuss what is being done globally to document and abolish these practices.

There are more slaves today than at any other time in human history. We will show the film: "Slavery: A Global Investigation" and have a dialogue discussion after the film. This film defines both historic and modern day slavery. The products of modern day slavery include: carpets, cotton, sugar, bangles, fireworks, glassware, clothing, cocoa, etc. These products are sold at a low price at the expense of the quality of life of human beings. We will discuss what is being done globally to build public awareness about this issue.

As recently announced by Provost Black, all online classes must be submitted to CETL for a peer review of course structure and organization as part of the KSU Online Course Quality Initiative prior to the Fall 2008 semester. In order to meet the projected demand for course reviews, I am actively recruiting faculty to serve as peer course reviewers and will host two (2) Quality Matters Peer Reviewer Training (PRT) sessions in early spring 2008.

Successful completion of this course will qualify you to serve on the KSU Peer Review Team. Currently, KSU peer course reviewers receive a $50 stipend and $50 to use for professional travel for each course review. Individuals who successfully complete this QM training will also be eligible to serve as national reviewers for the Quality Matters organization.

The first days of your course can be the most important of the semester. The tone you set will either grab your students, or lose them -- by withdrawal or apathetic retention.

"Successful Beginnings for College Teaching" by Angela Provitera McGlynn discusses some strategies and tools to get off to a great start. Sign up for the book club now, and you'll get the book right away, so you can employ some of them to start Spring semester. (It's a short book with some ready suggestions.) Then come to the discussion, and talk about how it's going.
