It is intended to be a collaborative space for adapting and experimenting with research assignments and sharing the success or lessons learned so that others may benefit.

10/13: Faculty Pub Night With Shani Byard
The second Faculty Pub Night of Fall 2015 features Shani Byard, Adjunct Professor of Specialized Programs in Urban Education. 
 
Professor Byard's presentation Is Your Teaching Style Racism Free?, will discuss her research, theory, and practice related to Afro-Media Literacy, a contemporary educational framework she designed to teach educators and youth how to dismantle institutional racism within their media-saturated schools and communities.
 
10/21: The Human Library 
On Wednesday, October 21, 2015 (12:00-3:00pm) at LMU's Laband Art Gallery and the adjacent Dunning Court, LMU will host its fourth Human Library in partnership with the Laband Art Gallery. 

The Human Library is part of an international movement designed to promote dialogue, reduce prejudices, and encourage understanding through one-on-one conversation. 

10/23-10/24: The Haunting of Hannon Library III in 3D: Little Dead Riding Hood
 
LMU Theatre Arts students are back to haunt the stacks and other creepy spaces in Hannon Library for our third annual celebration of "the scary" in literature. This year's theme takes inspiration from the fairy tales of the Brothers Grim(m) and other classic and contemporary authors. Tricks and treats will be served!

We are hosting two versions of the program: a Friday night event for LMU students, and a Saturday afternoon program geared towards community members and their families (recommended for children ages 10 and older).
 
Tours will leave outside the Von der Ahe Family Suite every ten minutes. Spots for the performances will be first-come, first-served, with sign-ups starting 30 minutes prior to the first performance on each day. Arrive early to guarantee your spot!

Open Access to Scholarship 


From October 19-25 the William H. Hannon Library will be joining other scholars and librarians in a national conversation about Open Access (OA) and higher education. Through social media and conversations with faculty, the library will help facilitate a dialogue about OA at LMU.  Our intention is to communicate what OA is, what it means to publish in an OA journal or repository and the potential benefits of Open Access for our faculty and students.  Learn more about Open Access here...

Faculty - please join us for a CTE lunch and conversation about Open Access on 10/22 from 11:30am-1pm. Please RSVP to the Center for Teaching Excellence at teachers@lmu.edu or x85866.
