FACT2 Report
« on: June 14, 2017, 09:21:20 AM »
Conference on Instruction and Technology (CIT) 2017, Teaching and Learning in Multiple Dimensions, took place at  SUNY Oneonta, May 30 - June 2, 2017.http://cit.suny.edu/cit-2017
There were a number of SUNY librarians and library directors in attendance and who presented. A major theme that came out of the conference was the scale up and support of the adoption of OER (open educational resources). There are SUNY libraries involved in these efforts on some campuses. 

The SUNY Learning Commons and groups using it (including FACT2) will be transitioning to a new platform named Workplace by Facebook. Here's the note from Lisa Raposo at CPD:
"The current Commons users will be the first people to have access to Workplace, and we hope you will be able to give shape to our space before we launch across all the entire University System.   Workplace provides a new way of communicating, and includes additional functionality, such as Chat and Video, that were not available in the current platform.
Workplace will enable collaboration across the System, identify expertise, and build colleagues’ connections by allowing you, the user, to connect to groups and people across the system as you choose.
If you currently facilitate a group or community within the current Learning Commons platform, you are invited to learn how to move your group activity into the new Workplace Platform."
