We must intentionally 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/criteria) developed by Mary-Ann Winkelmes, as it relates to assignment creation. We will introduce the framework and apply it to redesigning an assignment you currently use in your course.

Exams are a helpful assessment tool if aligned to your course objectives and goals. However, they can present a challenge with issues of academic dishonesty depending on the structure and design of the exam. This workshop will explore strategies for creating test questions and an environment that can promote academic integrity. We will also discuss the process of addressing academic integrity issues if they do arise. CETL is partnering with the Department of Student Conduct and Academic Integrity to deliver this workshop.

Panelists discussing this timely topic will roundly explore how we employ, avoid, or confront discomfort in the college classroom. Topics will include teaching from a “pedagogy of discomfort;” student and instructor discomfort; the didactic benefits of making students comfortable; diversity and inclusion in the college classroom; safe spaces; trigger warnings, power dynamics, and more. Join us for a lively and much-needed discussion on the topic of discomfort in the college classroom!

Our previous workshops on motivation have focused on creating a supportive environment, enhancing student self-efficacy, and establishing the value of the material. In this workshop we will address new research that reveals that student motivation can be further enhanced with the establishment of rapport and trust between the faculty member and the students. Join us to explore this new information and discover more and better ways to motivate our students to succeed.

What if there was a way to prevent or reduce those student meetings at the end of the semester on cheating and academic dishonesty? This workshop will explore strategies for creating an environment of trust in your course that can promote academic integrity and examine ways to design assessments that can reduce the opportunity for cheating. We will also discuss the process of addressing academic integrity issues if they do arise. CETL is partnering with the Department of Student Conduct and Academic Integrity to deliver this workshop.

NCUR is coming to Kennesaw State in April 2019! Encourage your students to take advantage of this opportunity to participate in a national conference by creating an assignment that they can complete at the conference. At this workshop, we will actively engage in the design and construction of assignments that will be relevant to your specific course and support your students' learning at the conference. We will apply the TiLT (Transparency in Teaching and Learning) framework to ensure that your students clearly understand the Purpose, Task, and Criteria for the assignment. Bring your ideas or existing assignments that you can revise and CETL faculty will be available to work with you one-on-one.

Many of us educators feel like they are walking on eggshells when they express their thoughts in the classroom and when they are faced with unsophisticated student comments. The discourse is rife with loaded terms such as “coddling," “trigger warnings,” “political correctness,” “safe spaces.” How do we balance the principles of academic freedom, freedom of speech and expression, and inclusive learning environments? How can we protect ourselves and our students? The authors (one the dean of the Law School at University of California Berkeley and the other the chancellor of University of California Irvine) provide a review of what schools can and cannot do, but, more importantly, discuss what’s at stake when we talk about censorship and hate speech. Come add your perspective to the discussion!

  • Student Development
  • Course Climate

In this workshop, author and fellow KSU faculty member Dr. Seneca Vaught will take us through the argument in his new book. We will consider the hidden costs of college and the shortcomings of considering education merely as a commodity, paying particular attention to groups of students who regularly shoulder more of that cost. We will broaden the definition of investment, moving from a guild mentality to considering long-term returns beyond financial earnings, so that we can have productive conversations with our students about the value of their education.
