    Monday Morning Mentor: How Can I Write Better Letters of Recommendation?

    Monday May 7
    (All Day)

    Kenneth Alford, PhD, Professor, Brigham Young University

    Consider the last time you were asked to write a letter of recommendation. Chances are it was a last-minute email you received from a student requesting your assistance. You felt pressured to assist because you wanted to help your student and you knew his or her future was on the line. But what if it didn't have to be this way? What if you could write letters of recommendation more effectively and efficiently, by inspiring the students to be more accountable in the process? This 20-Minute Mentor How Can I Write Better Letters of Recommendation? shares the four key steps to doing exactly that.

    This session can be accessed after 10:00 AM online at: http://9nl.pw/MUMentors and will be available on demand for one week.

    Monday Morning Mentor: Copyright Crash Course: How Can I Stay on the Right Side of the Law?

    Monday May 14
    (All Day)

    Thomas Tobin, PhD, Author, Speaker, and Consultant, State College, Pennsylvania

    As more instructors move away from creating course content and into curating content through works created by others, it's important to be aware of how to ethically, legally, and responsibly handle copyrighted works. Copyright laws can be a complex and confusing area. Different rules apply to different types of content, so when designing courses, teachers must have a grasp on the legal limits for copyrighted content and intellectual property. Make sure you're staying on the right side of the law! In this session you'll receive a simple yet deep understanding of how to work ethically with materials created by others, so that you are compliant with copyright laws.

    This session can be accessed after 10:00 AM online at: http://9nl.pw/MUMentors and will be available on demand for one week.

    Please contact Dr. Oliver Dreon, Director of the Center for Academic Excellence (oliver.dreon@millersville.edu) for the passcode to access the session.
