Future Auggies IT Expectations Panel

submitted by krajewsk@augsburg.edu

Tuesday August 6, 2PM – 3PM
Hagfors 250

What do future auggies expect from Augsburg when it comes to technology?

What do future auggies expect from their courses, faculty and campus?

The Augsburg IT Department is sponsoring a future student panel to explore what technology future auggies expect. Come see a panel, where three incoming first year students will talk about what they expect from Augsburg’s technology environment.

Teenagers have grown up in a world where technology is everywhere and how they learn is infused with technology. Many K-12 systems have laptop programs, smartboards, and use tools like moodle. This sets an expectation and shapes how they learn — we need to understand this digital reality so we can help students succeed in the college environment. Come and hear from this panel and engage with them on questions you have about their digital reality.

Campus Share Shop at Augsburg, Check it Out

submitted by keenern@augsburg.edu

Members of the Environmental Stewardship Committee and Campus Cupboard are coming together to create a Campus Share Shop for the students of Augsburg! Our purpose is to create a space where students can check out goods they need, rather than purchasing new items. By doing this, we hope to:

-Reduce the consumption of material goods
-Reduce students’ costs
-Create a community space where students can take part in informal learning around sustainable practices and skill-sharing.

This is a project created by students for students, so we are reaching out to you to find out what you would want to see in the share shop. Please take a few minutes to take a short survey that will aid in creating a share shop that will properly serve the students of Augsburg.

Last Transit Event of the Summer – RSVP today

submitted by peterlin@augsburg.edu

There is one final opportunity this summer for you to try transit with our transit consultants as your expert guides.

Please note that this summer’s final transit event has been modified slightly from the quick errand run to a lunch outing in downtown Minneapolis. Details are below:

UPDATED: Lunch from the best food trucks in town! – August 6th from 11:30 – 1:30 pm

Looking for a unique lunch experience? Join us as we walk to the Blue Line light rail from campus and take it downtown to the Nicollet Mall. From there we will walk to both Marquette and 2nd Ave where we will choose from a variety of food truck options. After lunch we will head back together. Throughout the trip we will offer transit tips and tricks while answering any questions participants have. Move Minnesota will provide free transit passes but participants will have to cover their lunch expenses. Travel time is about 20 minutes each way.

RSVP at this link:
