If you're a Chicago Public School teacher or librarian and would like to work with us to make eCUIP easier to use, you're invited to our brainstorming party!
We'd like to work with you to assemble a series of guides to accompany eCUIP for classroom use, as well as to aid you in developing custom content modules in support of your lesson plans. Some projects you might want to work on include:
- Teaching Guide
Hands-on activities for professional development, as well as
lesson plans and activities for using eCUIP with students
in the classroom
- Research Guide
Step-by-step guide for students on how to use eCUIP for research
- Content modules
Collections of digitized materials or original content (or both!) to be housed in any of our subject collections (see Digging for Dinosaurs and Inside The Outsiders for samples)
If you'd like to contribute to any of these projects, we'd like to pay you for your time and effort (some restrictions may apply).
To find out more, please join us for a brainstorming session on April 11th at the University of Chicago. The session will be held from 4:15 to 6:00 PM at the Research Institute in AAC-123. The Research Institute is located at the corner of 5640 S. Ellis Avenue (the corner of 57th and Ellis).
Refreshments will be served. Free parking is available in the parking deck located at the corner of Ellis and 55th.
Hope to see you there!
