"One cannot expect positive results from an educational . . . program which fails to respect the particular view of the world held by the people." Join us for a discussion of Paulo Freire's classic book, The Pedagogy of the Oppressed, and contemplate how the world view of our students influences the way they receive and perceive their education.

In addition to having been the QEP for the last ten years, Global Learning is also one of the High-Impact Practices. Study abroad is usually an intensive way of promoting global learning, but you do not have to send your students abroad to promote global understanding. In collaboration with the Division of Global Affairs, this workshop will unpack global learning as a pedagogy to understand why it is so powerful, what it can do for your students, and how you can incorporate it in your courses and/or get involved with the DGA programs and initiatives.

College teachers are well aware that students learn best when they are not fearful or anxious. We also know students lives may be affected by poverty, addiction, interpersonal violence, divorce, or the death of a family member or friend. Drawing upon developmental theories and recent studies about grit (Stoltz 2014) and perseverance through stressful times (Brown 2015), this webinar offers tools for teachers to discuss grades, classroom performance, or learning strategies for students in crisis.

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.

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.

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.
