Michael Reder (2006) states that assigning student writing is an “efficient way not only to engage students with the content of the material they are learning but also to foster the development of the thinking abilities we want in our students.” Participants in this workshop will discuss research-based strategies for designing, assigning, and responding to student writing in our various disciplines. We will examine ways to scaffold writing-to-learn activities with longer writing assignments. We will also practice teacher-friendly strategies for responding to student writing.

The brains of most of our students in the classroom are still developing. Leveraging this fact, the instructional choices me make can either help to accelerate student learning and growth or act to hinder it. This workshop will provide faculty of all disciplinary backgrounds with an introduction to the several essential student development theories and will include a discussion of teaching approaches based on the theories.

Come experience what it might be like to work in a Team-Based Learning classroom. The experience will be based in part on actual coursework from the facilitator’s nuclear engineering courses which were redesigned to be modeled after the Team-Based Learning approach of Michaelsen and Knight. However, the workshop is designed to appeal to a broad audience. In Team-Based Learning, the use of activities drives much of the instruction through extensive use of cooperative teams to enhance learning.

Maggie Berg and Barbara Seeber argue in The Slow Professor (2016) that "In the corporate university, power is transferred from faculty to managers, economic justifications dominate, and the familiar 'bottom line' eclipses pedagogical and intellectual concerns. Slow Professors advocate deliberation over acceleration. We need time to think, and so do our students.

How can we help students "own" their learning? Leverage social learning theory! Collaborative learning among students on assignments and projects is a high-impact educational practice that can be implemented in a variety of ways in a variety of content areas. Benefits include building authentic work-place skills, exposure to varied perspectives and valuable insights from other students, and the potential to learn more effectively than one could on their own.
