Written by Keelin Crotty

The Student Education Association (SEA) and Kappa Delta Pi Honor Society (KDP) collaborated with the GSU Library to host a free professional development, Media Workshop on Monday, November 12, 2018 in Governor State University’s (GSU) Library.  The workshop, held in room D2430B, was open to GSU students, faculty, staff, and educators in the community.  Educators who attended the professional development workshop were able to earn CPDUs.  The workshop, by Cari Didion GSU Science Librarian and Assistant Professor, demonstrated how to use ten Google Plug-Ins extensions.  The ten extensions presented were: Google Scholar, Google Drive, Honey, full page screen capture, word count tool, Office editing for Docs/ Sheets/ Slides, Bitly, MyBib Toolbar, LastPass, and Screencastify.  All 20 workshop attendees left with an abundance of new knowledge regarding Google Plug-Ins/ extensions that will enhance attendee’s literacy toolbelt and makes online time more productive.

The members of SEA/ KDP would like to thank Cari Didion for her time and effort put into making the Media Workshop a success!

This event was organized by SEA/KDP Committee Chair, Dr. Katy E. Hisrich and GSU Librarian, Alexis Sarkisian.
