6:30pm Reception 7:00pm Discussion Following up on Pope Francis' newest book, The Works of Mercy, the Center for World Catholicism & Intercultural Theology is hosting a new lecture series this year on the "Corporal Works of Mercy." Kicking off the series is America Magazine's chief correspondent, Kevin Clarke, on American Catholics and the global refugee crisis. Around the world, the refugee crisis has been met with indifference and responsibility-shifting-a sadly familiar response. Pope Francis has bridged secular and faith divides in his repeated attempts to highlight the human misery of today's refugees and migrants, but how well has that message been received by U.S. leaders and average Catholics? What will it take to reach people in the pews and policymakers in Washington? About the Photo: Taken by Kevin Clarke in an IDP (internally displaced person) camp in Bangui, Central African Republic. About the Corporal Works of Mercy The next lecture in our series is October 19, "Feeding the Hungry/Giving Drink to the Thirsty: The Challenges in Haiti & South Sudan." The 7 corporal works of mercy are found in the teachings of Jesus; they give us a model for how we should treat all others, as if they were Christ in disguise. They respond to the basic physical (corporal) needs of humanity as we journey together through this life: Feed the hungry.Give drink to the thirsty.Shelter the homeless (welcome the stranger).Clothe the naked.Visit the sick & imprisoned.Bury the dead.Give alms to the poor.Learn more about the 7 corporal works of mercy here. And explore their parallel, the 7 spiritual works of mercy, which focus on the spiritual well-being of others. Questions? Please contact CWCIT at cwcit@depaul.edu or 773.325.4158.

This workshop aims to provide teachers with the skills to evaluate the quality of their multiple choice questions. With this knowledge, teachers can precisely quantify just how easy or how hard the test truly is, how well the items are separating the higher scorers from the lower scorers, and how well the items are able to reproduce the students' scores. The workshop will focus on classical item analysis techniques such as item difficulty, item discrimination, and reliability indices. The session will be conducted in a hands-on format so that teachers will be able to conduct the analyses on their own. Example data sets will be provided in the session. By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to: (1) interpret item analysis reports to effectively improve the quality of the question items (2) identify students' strengths and weaknesses from the assessment report and alter their instructional strategies accordingly (3) Apply strategies to improve writing high quality items Presented by: Ivan Hernandez (Psychology)

Come and join us for a workshop that will demonstrate how public domain texts, scholarly articles, government documents, and historic collections can be text mined using the resources provided by the University Library. The workshop will feature the data mining possibilities of several collections: the HathiTrust Research Center Portal (http://analytics.hathitrust.org), which features more than three million digitized items in the public domain; JSTOR Data for Research, a free service for researchers wishing to analyze content on JSTOR; and two primary source collections -- African American Communities and Race Relations in America -- that can be mined through a request to the publisher Adam Matthew Digital, Ltd. There will be time to discuss and brainstorm about the possibilities of other resources of interest to workshop participants. Light refreshments will be served.
