SOE professor Liz Kolb and School of Information professor Kristin Fontichiaro speak about about the Digital Wellness Symposium on the Michigan Minds podcast
The Digital Wellness Symposium is a virtual gathering for children and their parents or caregivers to learn and talk about healthy online behaviors.
The EdHub Design Lab includes the EdHub’s design spaces, recording studio, AV equipped conference room, and shared working spaces. The Design Lab’s custom-built recording studio is open to only Marsal Family School of Education (SOE) faculty, staff, and graduate students.
The recording studio has three primary components: a built in studio space in suite 3210 for recording lecture videos and other digital content, a portable recording studio that can be transported within the SOE, and a set of loaner items intended to enhance audio recording capabilities for users. We envision folks using this space to record video/audio components of professional development offerings, courses, community projects, or other continuing education opportunities.
If you are interested in learning more about this space and available opportunities, please log into mySOE.
