Seminar Leaders FAQ

Question:

How will I know how many students are in my seminar?

Answer:

The program administrator will send you a list of attendees, an attendance sheet, and other instructions the day before your seminar.  

Question:

How long should my seminar last?

Answer:

Professional Development seminars should be no more than 45 minutes, as that is the amount of time students can claim on their timecards if they are attending for work-study credit.  Personal Development seminars can last longer, but in general you should aim for 60-75 minutes.

Question:  

Will someone take care of my AV needs?

Answer:  

No.  You will need to submit your AV requests to the Luther College Technology Help Desk at http://www.luther.edu/helpdesk/eventsetup/.  If you need advance training in the room in which you will teaching, you can set up a time with the LIS Technology Help Desk.  Note:  if you need a ‘clicker’ to advance powerpoint slides, this needs to be checked out from the Preus Library circulation desk.  

Question:

Is there a budget account I can use to print handouts?

Answer:

We encourage handouts so that students have a “take-away” from each seminar.  If your departmental budget cannot cover the cost of printing, contact the Beyond the Bubble administrator for an account number.   We also request you email a copy of your handout to Jennifer Rian (rianje01@luther.edu) in LIS so that she can add it to a repository of Beyond the Bubble resources.

Question:

Will the student seminar evaluations be shared with the instructors?

Answer:  

Yes, but the student feedback will be anonymous. The collective response from each seminar will also be shared with the planning committee to help in the development of future Beyond the Bubble seminars.
