Computing Learning Center (CCLC) Is Available Online

The Michigan Tech Provost has issued guidance that due to MTU’s new COVID-19 policy, all university learning centers must remain closed to physical sessions.

The College of Computing Learning Center will be available online and staffed by undergraduate coaches according to the Spring 2020 schedule: (https://www.mtu.edu/computing/labs-facilities/cclc/).

We will maintain our online presence in two ways:

1. Zoom. We will use the following Zoom meeting as a landing point for students seeking help from Learning Center coaches: https://michigantech.zoom.us/j/654452233. In this space, coaches will assess a student’s needs and either provide quick pointers or invite the student(s) into a Zoom meeting room for more targeted tutoring.

2. Canvas. We are setting up a special Canvas page where we can share information with students. We plan on posting short tutorials and quizzes to help students review topics required for their courses. If you have information you would like posted on our Canvas page, please send it to myself or Bonnie Henderson (bhenders@mtu.edu).

Students can self-enroll in the CCLC Canvas page here: https://mtu.instructure.com/enroll/KWFTJ9

After that, link directly to the CCLC Canvas page here: https://mtu.instructure.com/courses/1265465

The CCLC coaches are looking forward to helping the campus community in new ways during this challenging time. Please be patient as we get things up and running.

Please direct any questions about the CCLC to Leo Ureel (ureel@mtu.edu) or Bonnie Henderson (bhenders@mtu.edu).

Summer Online Classes

If you’re looking at some classes to take this summer, the two classes that I have attached flyers for are GREAT OPTIONS! 

KIP1500: Foundations of Kinesiology is a required class that will introduce you to the various sub-disciplines of kinesiology and focus heavily on the core program areas of exercise physiology, biomechanics, and motor control/learning.


KIP3700: Lifetime Fitness is a class that  introduces you to facets encompassing personal health & fitness and offers guidance to make lifestyle decisions to maintain or improve health status. This class is helpful for those that are looking to work with patients and changing their lifestyle choices (which is most of you!!)

If you have any questions don’t hesitate to email me!

Outdoor Sculpture Moves online – FA2110

Hello Students,

I’m excited to announce that my class, Outdoor Sculpture (Track B, HASS, 3 credits) will move online this summer.

 
Outdoor SculptureFA2110Summer Track B, 3 Credits, HASS
The class focuses on making works of art outside. And — because of the world we’re in — it will also include many opportunities for creating connections with community (even at a distance). We’ll learn from environmental artists and from artists whose work brings people together, and you’ll make your own works of art, wherever you are. 
There are no prerequisites.

No experience is necessary, and very few tools are required.. This is a HASS class. Everyone is welcome. Please see the attached flier for more information. 
All the best,

The Data Incubator’s Summer 2020 Fellowship

Early application deadline for The Data Incubator’s Summer 2020 Fellowship cohort closes on April 3. Apply here!

Get the insights into coding you need for a more successful application. Join us on Tuesday, March 31 at 1PM ET for a practical data science demo: a live session with instructor Michael Cullen introducing the how and the why of data science.

We’ll cover some common tools and techniques for exploring data and demonstrate how to use them to answer meaningful questions.

Join Us on Zoom March 31

Michael will show you how to do some initial exploration of a data set and turn broad questions into specific ones.

If you don’t already have access to Jupyter notebooks and Pandas, make sure you get what you need before the session begins.

In this live, 30 minute webinar, Michael will show you the steps to:
– Start with an analytical question, then introduce a data set
– Perform initial exploration of the data set, including inspecting columns, looking for missing values, basic visualizations and summary statistics
– Form a plan for analysis, turning the original question into something we can compute
– Find some “checkpoint” values we can compute as we work toward the final answer
– Understand code style and readability.
