Eventoons: Experimental creative art using educational eventoons, cartoons and avatars
Cartoons and Second Life (SL) avatars have been used in management and information systems courses to bring educational current events to ground and virtual classroom. Eventoons are an experimental creative way to use art to shape current events in a drawing and/or virtual world to enhance their impact in our students. Drawing cartoons for a class is done on a whiteboard and/or posted on a website (www.eventoons.org), blog or SL virtual world. Creations are experimental because they are tested for usefulness to enhance the learning experience. (ID #143/Track 1)

Microblogging and social media groups to enhance classroom discussions topics
Microblogging and social media networks are two of the current web technologies that bring classroom activities outside the traditional ground and virtual platforms. Microblogging using Twitter is a creative way of posting comments and links that can be replicated in social groups, Blackboard announcements or inside a discussion board. Students are able to read and reply to tweets as part of a class or comment in a social group. Professors can select good responses and tweet them as a microblog in both Twitter and social media groups to expand discussions outside the classroom. (ID #139/Track 4)

Capstone course development for the BAS in Supervision and Management
The Capstone in Supervision and Management is a course that focuses on the integration of knowledge, skills and abilities learned in the BAS in Supervision and Management program through a capstone project. Integrating management knowledge was accomplished by including the core competencies and program outcomes (professionalism, problem solving, literacy skills, management perspective, information technology and teamwork), business advisory board current industry needs, students’ current workplace experience, and faculty academic and practitioner experience. The result was a matrix of course components (team project simulation, individual project, OPQ, professional development, current topics, and mentoring) that combine and integrate the above-mentioned areas. (ID #158/Track 1)
