The Smithsonian Learning Lab is an online resource platform for educators. Launched in 2016, the Learning Lab is ideal for objected based learning in and outside of class. College educators have used this platform in all courses of study. Choose from over 2 million images and resources at the Smithsonian or import materials from other sources. Create a collection of items and resources for your course that students then access in class or at home for discussion or assignments. Students can also create their own collections for assignments or portfolios. In this workshop you will be introduced to different ways to use the Learning Lab and get started creating your own collections. This workshop will be led by Dr. Amy Shell-Gellasch

Dr. Shell-Gellasch received her Doctorate in Mathematics from the University of Illinois at Chicago in 2000. Since a three-year post-doctorate fellowship at the United States Military Academy at West Point, she has taught college mathematics in six states and two countries while following her active duty military spouse around the world until his retirement in 2017. Her research is in the history of mathematics and its uses in history and she has published scholarly articles and books in this field. From 2013-2017 she conducted research at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History and contributed to their web-based resources. Currently Dr. Shell-Gellasch produces content material for the Smithsonian Learning Lab and teaches mathematics at EMU.

This workshop is sponsored by the EMU Faculty Development Center and is open to all EMU faculty, staff, and students. For more information, please contact Dr. Shell-Gellasch at ashellge@emich.edu
