Faculty / Staff Workshops Spring 2015

Excel Basics: Tips and Tricks for the Average Joe (or Jane)

When: Thursday, Febrary 26, 12:30 - 2:00pm

Where: Library Lab 1004D

Presenters: Leah Massar and Susanne Markgren

Excel can simplify your life, if you know how to use it. This hands-on class will provide you with specific tricks and tips and shortcuts for performing calculations and creating charts and graphs. Most people don't like keeping statistics or crunching numbers, but we will show you that it isn't as scary or as complicated as you might think it is. This class is geared toward beginners.

Making the Most of Moodle Student Project Spaces

When: Thursday, March 5, 12:00 - 1:00pm

Where: Library DMZ Lab 1015B

Presenters: Darcy Gervasio and Marie Sciangula

Student Project Spaces in Moodle are more than just a vehicle for submitting senior projects, capstones, and master’s theses to the Library’s online archive! Student Project submission doesn't have to be a one-way street. In fact, these Moodle Spaces were designed to encourage students and faculty readers to take the wheel by using the spaces to communicate and share resources throughout the research and writing process. In this workshop, we’ll cover the basics of the submission process and also go beyond, demonstrating how to make the most of your Student Project Spaces. We’ll save time for Q&A, so bring any questions you have about the submission process.


Excel: Formulas and Functions

When: Tuesday, March 10, 12:30 - 2:00pm

Where: Library Lab 1004D

Presenter: Keith Landa

This workshop will walk you through the steps to effectively use formulas and functions to process data and calculate results.  Common functions and categories of functions will be reviewed.  We will cover practical examples of interest to the workshop participants. Prerequisite: a basic proficiency with Excel.

Presentation Basics (How to Create PowerPoint Designs from Scratch)

When: Thursday, March 19, 12:30 - 2:00pm

Where: Library Lab 1004D

Presenter: John Sicat

In this workshop, we’ll explore PowerPoint presentations and beyond. While we’ll mainly focus on how to create presentations, there will also be a focus in composing postcards, flyers, and logos for an appealing presentation. You will realize the full value of presentation software and you will know your options in terms of software that’s available out there.

You do not need to have any familiarity of the software. Please contact the presenter ahead of time if you wish to cover a certain facet of the software more so over the other. If you also have a presentation you’re not fully satisfied with that you’d like to be reviewed, you may forward it to the presenter ahead of the workshop.

Presentation Philosophy (PowerPoint as a Tool, Not as the Presenter)

When: Tuesday, April 14, 12:30 - 2:00pm

Where: Library Lab 1004D

Presenter: John Sicat

This workshop is focused more on the science and art of presenting to an audience. If you’d like to take your presentation skills to the next level or simply wish to get ideas on how to improve your existing presentation, this workshop is for you! The presenter will cover a wide range of topics from presentation aesthetics to relaxation techniques to body language.
