Students are coming out as trans* in college at much higher rates than in the past, and many eductors feel unprepared to reach them. This book is a great resource in that direction. Rather than looking at trans* students from a deficit perspective, as problems needing to be accommodated, Z Nicolazzo uses a framework of resilience and agency to shape hir empirical study. The book also provides a glossary and answers to commonly asked questions about gender beyond the binary.

Teaching students to think critically and examine their own assumptions is something that most faculty in higher education are striving to achieve. In his book The Skillful Teacher, Stephen Brookfield writes, "Thinking critically is a basic survival skill of adult life." Please join us as we examine and discuss how to effectively teach critical thinking to our students. Author of the book, Why Brilliant People Believe Nonsense, KSU faculty member Steve Miller will help facilitate the discussion and share his own experiences and results in teaching critical thinking.

Tenure and promotion to full are tremendous accomplishments, but what comes next? Once the celebration ends, service committments tend to build-up. Many faculty have overextended themselves for so long, they have habitualized the prioritization of work over other important persuits. Whether you have just achieved tenure or are nearing retirement, it is important to reflect on your body of work with an eye toward legacy-building. Participants in this workshop will identify how to leverage what matters most to build a fulfilling academic legacy.

Problem-based learning, first introduced in medical schools, is a pedagogical approach which strives to make the classroom student-centered and the learning experience relevant to real life situations. Dr. Wynn will demonstrate how he applies this pedagogy in his history courses. We will examine the evidence for the effectiveness of this technique as well as ways to incorporate it in various disciplines.
