DML Projects: 3D Printing from MRIs

Posted On: September 14, 2016

The DML has been working with staff from the Cardiac Mechanics Research Group to format and print heart models from MRI data. We’re finding individual medical students and researchers needing to do the same, and we hope to build our skills with medical imaging in this coming year.

Wikipedia in the Classroom: Creating Meaningful Instruction Experiences
9:00 – 10:30am, Tuesday, October 11, 2016
Geisel Library, Seuss Room

RSVP online

Coffee and light refreshments will be served.

Have you thought about using Wikipedia in the classroom? Utilizing Wikipedia can help to increase students’ information literacy, enable them to become critical thinkers and producers of knowledge, and provides an opportunity for them to contribute their work in a space beyond the classroom. It also engages them in the editorial process and allows for a collaborative experience.

Join LiAnna Davis (Director of Programs, Wiki Education Foundation) and Jami Mathewson (Educational Partnerships Manager, Wiki Education Foundation) in a workshop on the many options for critically engaging Wikipedia as a classroom assignment.

Questions? Contact Lia Friedman (lgfriedman@ucsd.edu) or Gayatri Singh (gasingh@ucsd.edu).
