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.

As part-time faculty members, we have to be efficient as we prepare for class, communicate with our students, and grade student work. In this workshop, we will discuss practical strategies part-time faculty can use to save time planning and preparing for class. Workshop participants will have the opportunity to share their own strategies and will also leave with tools they can use to plan and deliver their courses.

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.

What's the trouble with grades? Walvoord and Anderson (2010) state, when we talk about grades, educators have student learning most in mind. However, our students may have different perspectives about grades. Participants in this webinar will discuss grading processes and products that spur communication with students. We will identify research-based tools and strategies to motivate and engage students in grading practices to improve teaching and learning in our classrooms.

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 workshop offers tools for teachers to discuss grades, classroom performance, or learning strategies for students in crisis.
