On behalf of the Weinberg Memorial Library and the Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence, we invite University of Scranton faculty and staff to our Fall 2012 Technology On Your Own Terms (TOYOT) workshops. Here’s what we’ve got planned for this semester:

How serious are you about your digital photography? Which device or camera fits your needs?
Brian Snapp and Tom Leong from the CTLE will provide an overview to help you make these decisions. In this workshop there will be a short review of current digital devices and common uses; best practices for taking digital pictures including subject, lighting, composition and shutter speed; and creative uses in digital photography.

Traditional photo-sharing sites, like Flickr and Picassa, have been studied in previous Technology on Your Own Terms sessions. In this session, we will explore the next generation of digital photo sharing with apps like Instagram and Hipstamatic; the photo blogging site Tumblr; and the virtual/visual bulletin board, Pinterest. Sheli McHugh, Cataloging and Metadata Librarian, will provide an overview and introduction to these sites, while demonstrating their various features and functions. A light lunch will be provided.
