SBU InspirationsIn Fall 2019, CELT staff talked to students on campus who asked if there was a way that students could share with faculty ways that they use technology for academic purposes. We have partnered with the Career Center and are excited to announce the Spring 2020 SBU Inspirations Student Technology Showcase.
On February 24th, a call will be sent out to all students inviting them to submit videos (no longer than 4 minutes) that :
focus on experiential and applied learning pieces.
highlight assignments for EXP+, DIV or SPK course where technology is used to complete that assignment
showcase services Stony Brook provides that students can use to share their talents
If you have a student who you believe should submit a video, please nominate them!
If you are interested in participating as a judge, please self nominate via the nomination form at: https://sites.google.com/stonybrook.edu/sbuinspirations

Early today, the following email was sent from our Bookstore Liason to all instructors. If you use clickers, please make sure you indicate that you do when you submit your request trough Follett.
Dear Faculty & Department Administrators,
We have begun to transition to our new official bookstore provider, Follett, and we invite you to select the course materials you need through Follett Discover Adopt, the online course material requisition tool.
Remember, there will not be a brick-and-mortar bookstore on campus. All of your “required and recommended” course materials will be available for students to purchase in time for the Summer I, II and Fall 2018 semesters on the stonybrookshop.com website with available shipping to their home, campus store or campus address.
Our goal is to have all of your course materials up on SOLAR by the time class registration begins. Providing your requisition on time ensures that the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) compliance is met and that students can shop early to obtain their course materials at the best prices. By letting Follett know if you will be using the same course materials in upcoming semesters, they can offer our students more money for their course materials at buyback.
The due date for submitting course materials requests for Summer and Fall 2018 is Monday, April 2nd. If you do not require any course materials for your class, please indicate “No Text Required” in the online portal. Additional information and reminders about placing your course material requisitions will be sent to you via subsequent emails.
Follett will be hosting an Open House event on Wednesday, March 7th from 12:00pm – 2:30pm at Charles B. Wang Center, room 301. We invite you to attend so that Follett can introduce you to the new course material requisition tool and how to log into the portal.
Please click the invite below to RSVP:
Please remind your students that Follett will be hosting book buyback events at the end of the spring semester at Shop Red West and Shop Red East. When they sell back their textbooks to Follett, it helps other students get the best prices for used books next semester. Textbook rental returns through Amazon@StonyBrook can be dropped off at the campus pickup point location in the Melville library.
If you would like a complimentary desk copy for the course you are teaching, you can request a digital copy of the book through the Follett Discover Adopt online portal.
