Dr. Huston states: “Men and women approach decisions differently, though not necessarily in the ways we have been led to believe. Stress? It actually makes women more focused. Confidence? A healthy dose of self-questioning leads to much stronger decisions. And despite popular misconceptions, women are just as decisive as men — though they may pay a price for it.” This book club will explore how the decision making process differs between men and women, and we will apply those insights to the classroom.

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.

Join us for a discussion of Brené Brown’s book, Rising Strong, which focuses on powerful narratives of individuals who have expressed grit, determination, and the willingness to share their stories of success and failure. We will relate the themes and ideas from the book to our own experiences and talk about how we can use them to inspire our students.

This workshop will provide strategies for teaching large classes with a learning-centered approach. Large classes present challenges for instructors and learners alike, and many instructors struggle with how to scale up the active learning pedagogy that is effective in their smaller classes. Participants will discuss their own challenges in this regard, consider the literature on effective teaching practices for large classes, and work together to identify solutions to the challenges discussed.
