New feature on LRC Blog: Faculty Profiles
We are excited to announce a new, regular feature on the LRC Blog: Faculty Profiles. Each month, a different faculty member will be profiled, rotating among the language/culture departments. We hope that the profiles will help students (and colleagues) to get to know our faculty better, as teachers, as researchers and as people. The profiles will serve as a venue to showcase faculty teaching and research accomplishments and will eventually introduce all of the language/culture faculty at MHC.
Each of the profiles will integrate multimedia, allowing us to hear the faculty describe the intricacies of their research as only they can and to see real examples of their teaching strategies in action. The profiles will be researched and written by the student consultants in the LRC.
Our first profile features Professor Ying Wang from Asian Studies. In 2010, Professor Wang was recognized with the Mount Holyoke College Faculty Award for Teaching, so we look forward to learning about what she finds effective in the classroom and how she connects her language teaching with her research in Chinese literature.
Course Reserves and Screenings
All items placed in course reserves at the LRC for fall semester have now been returned to faculty boxes in your department offices.
For spring semester, please feel free to bring in reserve materials at any time. The LRC will be open only occasional hours during J-Term, so items for reserve can also be left in the LRC box in the mail room on 1st Ciruti. You can download and print the reserve form from the LRC website:
The same form can also be used to schedule screenings of films placed on reserve in the LRC. Or, feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Materials that are owned by the MHC library (or any other library) cannot go on reserve in the LRC; they must be held on reserve at the main library:
To place films owned by the MHC library on reserve, schedule screenings of these films, and/or to request that the library purchase a new film, use this online form:
Reserve LRC Facilities for Spring Semester
It's not too early to start making reservations for LRC facilities (the lab, multimedia studios or lounge) or LRC equipment (pocket video cameras, external hard drives, document cameras, and more) for your spring semester classes. Reservations can be made with the online reservation form or by emailing email@example.com.
New on MHC Languages YouTube: "L'histoire de France"
"L'histoire de France," a video created by Karolina Kubik, a Foreign Fellow in the French department, humorously tells 1000 years of French history in (approximately) 10 minutes:
