Course design is one of several important elements of teaching for student success. This interactive workshop will provide a framework for self-reflection about opportunities for course redesign through the lens of student success. The framework will emphasize three research-based elements: mastery, metacognition, and motivation. Join us to reflect on the framework and to strategize and set priorities to improve student outcomes.

We must intentially think about where we want students to go in order to help them get there. Teaching with purpose requires us to first identify our course goals and objectives and create assignments that are aligned. Often we, as instructors, know why were doing certain things in our courses, but it might not be apparent to students. This workshop will explore the Transparency Framework (of purpose/task/criertia) developed by Mary-Ann Winkelmes, as it relates to assinment creation. We will introduce the framework and apply it to redesigning an assingment you currently use in your course.

If you find yourself wondering why your students' exam results are often worse than their homework and class activity results, this 30-minute informative webinar is for you. We will discuss strategies and tools to incorporate the use of purposeful knowledge network development throughout our teaching in order to help students transfer what they learn from lecture and practice to other contexts, including in exams and later in life. Registrants will receive a webinar link a few days before the event.

Employing active learning techniques does not automatically produce high quality learning, nor does it necessarily contribute to a productive academic mindset in students. While a large body of research shows that incorporating active learning techniques into the classroom can significantly improve student achievement of learning outcomes, how can we use it to produce a productive academic mindset as well? In this workshop we will explore how we can create productive academic mindsets by engaging students in ways that really make a difference. Specifically, we will consider three components identified in the research that teachers can influence student mindset in the classroom: emotional engagement, cognitive-emotional engagement, and behavioral engagement.

The most successful students take charge of their own goals for learning and are reflective about their learning processes. Attend this workshop to learn some simple ways to integrate metacognition and self-regulation—two research-based concepts that make a difference for motivation and learning--into your course.
