November 15, 1:30p - 3:30p
An introduction to Desktop Publishing, Using Adobe In-Design, IS 134
An introduction to the Zen of desktop publishing (DTP.) What makes DTP different than word processing? Attendees will be introduced to the concept of Adobe's pallette metaphor. There will also be an in-class excercise. We will create a newsletter page using InDesign. The powerpoint presentation for the seminar is available here:

November 19, 10:00a - 11:30a
Adobe InDesign, Session Two, IS 134
Adobe InDesign is a flexible desktop publishing program available for both PC and Macintosh Computers and produced by a local company.  This session assumes a basic knowledge of desktop publishing principles and some familiarity with the pallette interface common to Adobe applications. We will produce a document using InDesign and discuss how to become a more powerful user of this wonderful tool.

December 2, 11:30a - 1:00p
Emerging Technology and our University, IRC 101
This brown bag seminar is the second in our Emerging Technology series.  For this seminar we will step back and look at emerging technology itself and how the Information Technology paradigm continues to evolve and change.  We will look at the impact of this on higher education overall and our institution in particular and discuss how we adapt, cope and implement technology.

Weblogging Seminar
This was a great seminar! Dennis Dunleavy did a fantastic job telling the attendees about how he is using weblogs in his teaching. A number of folks have expressed interest in the seminar and if there is interest and willingness on Dennis's part to repeat it, I would love to. Meanwhile, here is a link to the Powerpoint:

Next week I will be at the O'Reilly Mac OS X Conference
