ED COUNCIL HOSTED A WORKSHOP
Last week, Curry School's Ed Council sponsored a workshop focused on "Classroom Management." The CLIC was filled with students, presenters, and pizza!
The librarians couldn't resist the opportunity to suggest that for further study about this topic, try searching these 4 Ebsco Education databases simultaneously. You could search by keywords, such as "classroom management" and/or author. The library recently ordered the book Classroom Management by Paul Burden. To get journal articles by Paul Burden, you could search these 4 Ebsco Education databases using his name as an author. And don't forget those great handbooks in the CLIC including these:
Handbook of Classroom Management
Education Handbook Area: LB 3013 .H336
Table of Contents
Handbook of Research on Teaching, 3rd edition
Education Handbook Area: LB 1028 .H315
note the chapter by Walter Doyle, pages 328-375
Classroom Organization and Management
SYMPOSIUM AND EXHIBIT
The images of early American history are easy to visualize: Jeffersonian architecture, redcoats and revolutionaries, powdered wigs, flags with the slogan "Live Free or Die," but its soundtrack is elusive.
Now, a pair of University of Virginia events will conjure and examine the sounds of early America, from the parlor music of Thomas Jefferson's Monticello to slave songs and bawdy tavern sing-alongs.
On March 30 and 31, the McIntire Department of Music's "Soundscapes of Jefferson's America" symposium will examine the sounds of the era through a combination of scholarly presentations and musical performances.
Concurrently, the "Sound in Early America" exhibit – a collaboration between the Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library, the music department in the College of Arts & Sciences, the Jefferson Trust and the music library–opened March 20 and will run through August 12, 2012. The exhibit features sound artifacts ranging from Jefferson's personal notebooks and family music collection to a Civil War-era musical Valentine. An opening reception on March 26 at 5 p.m. will officially kick off the exhibit.
PUBLIC ACCESS POLICY
The public access policy of the Institute of Education Sciences is as follows:
Recipients of awards are expected to publish or otherwise make publicly available the results of the work supported through this program. Institute-funded investigators should submit final, peer-reviewed manuscripts resulting from research supported in whole or in part by the Institute to the Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC, http://eric.ed.gov) upon acceptance for publication. An author's final manuscript is defined as the final version accepted for journal publication, and includes all graphics and supplemental materials that are associated with the article. The Institute will make the manuscript available to the public through ERIC no later than 12 months after the official date of publication. Institutions and investigators are responsible for ensuring that any publishing or copyright agreements concerning submitted articles fully comply with this requirement.

• Submission Guidelines
• Online Submission
The database “U.S. History in Context” is an excellent resource for people working on any aspect of U.S. history and culture, and is a great starting point for users seeking an overview of a particular issue or topic in U.S. history. It is a collection of almost 200 online historical encyclopedias and compilations. In addition, there are full text articles from over 200 journals, plus primary source materials.
WHAT: Higher Education Policy in Times of Constraint: Opportunities for Research on Faculty & Staff.
WHEN: Monday, March 26 from 11:00am – 12:30pm
WHERE: The CLIC (3rd floor, Ruffner Hall)
WHO: Paul Umbach of North Carolina State University's Department of Leadership, Policy and Adult & Higher Education
WHY: Because of recent changes in the professoriate and the complex structures of faculty work, studying how college faculty engage students in and out of the classroom presents many challenges. Paul Umbach will share findings and lessons learned from his research and will discuss avenues of promising research.
OPEN ACCESS VIDEO-BOOK
Learning from YouTube, the first video-book published by the MIT Press, investigates what actually happens within new media settings that proclaim to be radically "democratized," why what could be a tool for political change is used mostly to spoof mainstream media, plus other topics about YouTube with a series of more than 200 texts and videos—"texteos." In scholarly fashion, this video book has ten "YouTours" composed of sequenced texteos making lengthier arguments. Unlike other books, it is written in a relatively informal voice, it cannot be printed and will appear only online, and content can and will be added. YouTube is its subject, form, method, problem, and solution.
The author, Alexandra Juhasz, is Professor of Media Studies at Pitzer College, Claremont, California. This video—book is the pilot project of an initiative of the Alliance for Networking Visual Culture funded by the Mellon Foundation. It was selected for publication, peer reviewed, and copy-edited by the MIT Press.
The database, Dissertations and Theses Full Text,will be unavailable from Saturday, March 24, 2012, at 23:00 EDT to Sunday, March 25, 2012 at 11:00 EDT as ProQuest®. the company from which the library purchases the database will be performing updates.

BROWN BAG LUNCH FOR UVa STUDENTS
WHO: Madelyn Wessel, J.D., Special Advisor to the University Librarian and Liaison to the General Counsel, University of Virginia.
WHAT: A brown bag lunch, presentation, and Q&A for students focusing on your rights as authors with regard to intellectual property, copyright, and patent issues. These rights are inherent in all forms of publication including dissertations, journal articles, books, and research projects. Cookies and drinks will be provided.
WHEN: Tuesday, April 2nd, Noon
WHERE: Scholars' Lab Classroom in Alderman Library. Alderman Library is building #1 on this map.
The Scholars' Lab is located on the 4th floor (West wing) of Alderman Library.
WHY: Faculty aren't the only ones to have questions about copyright, intellectual property, and patents that affect their research projects, publishing endeavors, and potential income opportunities. These questions play out in the print and the online world for graduate students as well. Recently, a UVa grad student wondered if she could provide Open Access to her dissertation and how that would affect her copyrights with regard to her dissertation. A TA wanted to know about online teaching and who owns the intellectual property involved in creating an online course. Then there is the question of who owns the intellectual rights to student work. These and other topics of interest are certain to be on the lunch menu at this brown bag session. So please come, enjoy the conversations, and seek answers to your most perplexing copyright, IP, and patent questions.
