What do we want students to remember from our courses? This interactive webinar prepares us to think about our goals for the last class of the semester. Perhaps we want to reinforce the course goals, create opportunities for reflection, connect student learning to future classes or employment, affirm the value of continuous learning, or inspire our students. Join this webinar to share and to learn about purposeful strategies to wrap up our last class in a meaningful way for ourselves and our students.

Paradoxically, role-play is an authentic activity to improve long-term learning and prepare students for future coursework or careers. Role play activities encourage students to identify solutions to case studies, resolve problems in representative scenarios , interpret theories, analyze literature and visual arts, or practice empathy by taking another person’s point of view. Through role play, students can engage in research, build “think-on-your-feet” skills, and reflect upon alternative solutions. Participants in this research-based, interactive workshop will examine the effectiveness of role-play across disciplines, analyze guidelines and resources for role-play activities, and practice how to design and implement role-play in college classrooms.

Teachers employ stories every day in their classrooms. But do these brief stories purposefully establish your teaching philosophy, amplify instruction, or create inclusivity? This interactive workshop explores storytelling as an effective, inclusive, and often overlooked pedagogical approach to enhance teaching and learning. Participants will pinpoint whether they currently integrate narrative into their undergraduate instruction. Further, they will identify opportunities for storytelling to punctuate classroom lecture, enhance discussion, and establish an inclusive classroom environment. Taking disciplinary-based goals into consideration, participants will create and share brief stories or anecdotes to purposefully integrate into their online or f2f classroom contexts.

Laura Rendon's book Sentipensante (sensing/thinking) pedagogy offers a holistic approach to teaching in higher education. Rendon's hybrid memoir and research study proposes a vision of higher education that balances the relationship between intuition and intellectualism. Described as "a pedagogy that embraces wholeness, social justice, and liberation," Rendon describes how to integrate a consonant pedagogy that prepares students for civic action, sustainability, and community building.
