BRC logoBerkeley Research Computing Services

The Berkeley Research Computing (BRC) program supports research with a coordinated set of services across a range of computation and data analysis needs. BRC includes consulting that ensures faculty are matched to the appropriate resources, and that the computation and data resources meet their needs. BRC compute resources range from the Savio High Performance Computing cluster, to facilitated access for cloud computing, to the Analytics Environments on-Demand (AEoD) resource, designed for researchers who need to run analytic software packages (such as ArcGIS, Stata, SPSS, R Studio, etc.) on a platform that is scaled up from a standard laptop or workstation, in a Windows-based environment.

ETS and CSS-IT Service Desk Collaboration Project

The objective of the ETS and CSS IT Service Desk Collaboration was to move first tier phone and email support for online ETS services to the campus-wide Service Desk (CSS IT), with three months for training and just under a month for a pilot before the Spring 2017 semester.

Presenter: Paula Miranda, Instructional Technologist and Support Lead, ETS

Paula is a baseball fan and active Ella Baker Center member who manages support and training for bCourses, in that order.

image of IT monitoring posterIT Monitoring for UC Berkeley

While most IT infrastructure and application support teams currently have some form of monitoring solution for their respective services, there is no system in place that allows for a holistic view of the entire operational environment. The IT Monitoring Service is intended to provide a central coordination point for the prompt and effective resolution and communication of IT system outages. This service utilizes the Groundwork Open Source monitoring platform, housed in the IST Data Center, to consolidate all critical systems monitoring into a single pane of glass. This overhead view allows CSS IT Service Desk and responding IT Personnel greater visibility into the overall health of all mission critical services. View our poster

Presenter: Peter Collins, ITOC Systems Analyst, IST-Infrastructure Services

Peter loves IT Monitoring!

Did you know that over 70% have at least one social media profile? As IT professionals, we understand that technology is a great tool for conducting research, connecting with family and friends, as well as learning in the classroom. However, it wasn’t until 2014 that the systemwide IT communications movement took off, and as a community we began to connect with colleagues across the state using new platforms. In this session, we’ll go over all UC IT social platforms, from the steady build-up of the UC IT Blog to the recent Slack explosion. With each platform we’ll introduce tips and tricks and give shout-outs to campus rock stars. Throughout, we’ll delve into the science behind community building, and explain why simply sharing your story – whether it be small project update or big award for your team – can lead to a happier, more collaborative workplace.

Leveraging Technology-Enhanced Active Learning on Campus

Active learning classrooms (ALC) are flexible learning spaces that feature advanced technology, moveable furniture, whiteboards and huddle boards, and more. They are designed to support a wide range of pedagogical approaches that encourage student engagement and interaction. These classrooms facilitate technology-enhanced teaching with features such as advanced video distribution, multiple source destination, and device control through networking. This poster will highlight the unique features of the six general-assignment ALCs on campus, with capacities ranging from 15 to 120, while also providing examples of how faculty are using these flexible spaces to advance student learning. In addition, we will share preliminary results of faculty and student feedback related to teaching and learning in the ALCs during Spring Semester 2018 as well as future directions for advancing digital learning and innovation.

Presenter: Brit Toven-Lindsey, Active Learning Specialist, Center for Teaching & Learning

Brit supports faculty in incorporating more active learning and student-centered pedagogies into their teaching. The Center for Teaching and Learning partners with faculty to inspire, enrich, and innovate Berkeley’s collective practice and pursuit of teaching excellence.

The Power of Collaboration: Berkeley’s Debut of Virtual Advising for New Students

In Summer 2017, UC Berkeley transitioned all academic colleges and departments from an in-person summer orientation advising model to virtual academic advising of 9,500 undergraduates via Canvas, a learning management software. In nine months, units across campus collaborated on technology, content, and communication to make this possible. Learn how we did it and who we involved at this poster session.

Presenters: Rebecca Sablo, Assistant Dean of Instruction & Student Affairs, College of Natural Resources and Micki Estuesta, Associate Director, New Student Services
