As more students from racially, culturally, and economically diverse backgrounds enter our institution, it is important to recognize the differences in life experiences and perspectives these students bring into the classroom. Research shows that some students are less apt to retain information delivered through lecture. Others may lack trust in institutions or authority figures and hesitate to speak up in class. Some may experience stereotype threats that influence their achievement on exams. In this workshop, we will address a variety of factors that influence the experiences of underrepresented students and discuss how faculty can emphasize students’ strengths while acknowledging students’ challenges.

An awareness of how the mind processes and remembers information can be a student's key to unlocking effective and transferable learning strategies. This workshop, based on the latest research in educational and cognitive psychology, will help you embed instruction on how people learn alongside your course content.

Undergraduate research is a high-impact educational practice that leads to deep, meaningful learning for students (Kuh, 2008). This workshop will be focused on how faculty can engage students by mentoring them to be undergraduate researchers, how to work with teams of researchers, and how to embed meaningful undergraduate research experiences into your courses.

As the semester intensifies, it’s easy to get overwhelmed and lose track of yourself as a teacher: who you are, where you’ve come from, and why you teach the way you do. In this workshop, we invite you to pause and reflect on your teaching journey in words and images. Together we’ll cover some basic principles of verbal-visual storytelling, then craft brief narratives centered on key moments in our teaching practices and experiences. All materials will be provided; no prior skills necessary, just a willingness to jump in and put something down on paper. This workshop is geared especially toward graduate student teachers and those interested in teaching, but KSU instructors of all experience levels are welcome.

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.

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.

Even though the book is five years old, Selingo’s analysis is still relevant. From his experience as an editor of the Chronicle of Higher Education, he traces problematic administrative practices that took hold in the first decade of the millennium (building debt and promoting a customer mentality with regards to students). Together with unforeseen societal changes, such as economic crises and disruptive technologies, these practices have exacerbated the college dropout problem and made students question the value of a college degree. Join us for this chat to discuss what of his analysis resonates with your experience, the likelihood of the future he predicts, and the applicability of the strategies he suggests.

Midterms have passed and finals are coming up. These are two times in the semester when instances of academic dishonesty are at their highest. Do you feel comfortable and prepared in addressing academic dishonesty in your course? This workshop will provide you with step-by-step guidance on how to deal with occurrences of possible academic integrity issues. We will discuss what cheating might look like, how to deal with it, and provide guidance for discussion you may need to have with students. CETL is partnering with the Department of Student Conduct and Academic Integrity to deliver this workshop.
