Tech Tip Tuesday: Empty Grades in Moodle

submitted by tensen@augsburg.edu

By default, only non-empty grades in the Moodle Gradebook are aggregated; the others are ignored. This means that if instructors want students to have an accurate understanding of their progress in a course, a value must be inserted into the points window. If students have not submitted an assignment, instructors need to insert a 0 (rather than leaving the place blank) to affect the final grade. Below is a link that explains how to quickly add zeros for all students who haven’t already received a grade for an activity.

Two weeks in The Netherlands – study abroad in summer 2020

submitted by stoddard@augsburg.edu

Short term study abroad is a great way to travel, earn credits, and still have the rest of your summer to work, play, do an internship, etc. There are a few great options coming up for Summer 2020–start planning now. Applications are open and the application deadline is JANUARY 31

***Living Green in Amsterdam***
Course options (students take ONE course):

SOC/URB 295: Living Green in Amsterdam (elective)

This program also fulfills the Augsburg Experience requirement

Faculty Leader: Lars Christiansen
Travel Dates: May 7-22, 2020

Program Description:
Today, most of the world’s population lives in metropolitan areas, whether that means a traditional city, a suburb, an exurb or a slum – this is a very recent change in human history. Humans are fundamentally social beings, and urban areas provide the space where most people are born, grow up and interact with one another throughout their entire lifetimes.. We will explore the city as a social and political phenomenon and examine how the design of cities affects social interactions in perhaps surprising ways – the placement of buildings and the design of open space may make us want to be in an area or flee it.

Commitment to Environmental Equity and Action at Augsburg

submitted by bouzardg@augsburg.edu

Join us for a listening and action planning around how environmental equity shows up in our lives and on campus. Together we will collectively envision Augsburg’s commitment to environmental action beyond 2019.

Monday, November 11, 2019
4:30-6:30 p.m.
Marshall Room

Background:
In 2007, Augsburg affirmed its long-standing commitment to environmental stewardship, driven by students, faculty, and staff, by signing the Second Nature Presidents’ Climate Leadership Commitment. Since then, our campus has made some progress towards living out this commitment, including working towards being carbon neutral by 2019. However, we recognize we have not fully lived up to what this commitment requires, given the urgent realities of climate change, the remnants of an exclusive environmental narrative and movement built on white supremacy, and the clear demands for addressing inequitable systems that are interconnected. As an institution committed to its public mission and to educating students to be informed citizens, thoughtful stewards, critical thinkers, and responsible leaders, how can we take action that directs our power and resources to join the existing momentum of an equity-based environmental movement working for the collective liberation of our common home and community?

Crying Earth Rise Up–Film Event

submitted by marubbio@augsburg.edu

The Augsburg Native American Film Series presents Crying Earth Rise Up on November 12, 2019.
Crying Earth Rise Up, narrated by Tantoo Cardinal, tells the story of Debra White Plume and Elisha Yellow Thunder’s efforts to stop the uranium mining contaminating their community’s drinking water. Informed by Native perspectives and belief systems, the film addresses the sacred relationship between water and life itself, as well as the conflicts between nuclear power companies, activists, and locals. With a nuanced look at what is becoming an increasingly common environmental battle, the film offers a case study of contemporary conservation efforts in the face of corporate and capitalistic interests. (Crying Earth Rise Up)
Crying Earth Rise Up acknowledges the centrality of Native involvement in opposing the particular practice of uranium mining and suggests Native communities’ wider spread contribution to a variety of other conversations related to environmental protection (although not always noted by mainstream media, e.g. the recent blocking of the TransCanada Keystone XL Pipeline) (Documentary Educational Resources site). Join us for the film and a conversation with director/producer/cinematographer Suree Towfighnia and Debra White Plume.

Where & When: November 12, 2019

Community Organizing Skills Workshop: One-to-Ones

submitted by bouzardg@augsburg.edu

If you want to create change, few things are more important as one-to-one relational meetings. One-to-ones are at the heart of community organizing and leadership. These conversations are about establishing a public relationship with someone, and sharing stories as a way to understand their motivations and self interests. They can uncover common values and interests that might lead to collaborative work in support of the change you are trying to create. This mix of personal, sometimes intimate knowledge leading to public action holds unique value. Participants in this Sabo Center workshop will learn and practice one-to-one relationship building for organizing and public work.

Thursday, October 31
3:40-5 p.m.
Marshall Room, Christensen Center

This training will be led by Dennis Donovan. Dennis teaches co-creative politics skills to people of all ages in the Twin Cities, across the US, and around the world who want to make positive change in their communities.
