Teachers employ stories every day in their classrooms. But do these brief stories purposefully establish your teaching philosophy, amplify instruction, or create inclusivity? This interactive workshop explores storytelling as an effective, inclusive, and often overlooked pedagogical approach to enhance teaching and learning. Participants will pinpoint whether they currently integrate narrative into their undergraduate instruction. Further, they will identify opportunities for storytelling to punctuate classroom lecture, enhance discussion, and establish an inclusive classroom environment. Taking disciplinary-based goals into consideration, participants will create and share brief stories or anecdotes to purposefully integrate into their online or f2f classroom contexts.

This workshop is for Deans, Chairs and other University Administrators. National data indicates that academic bullying happens more often than we would like to admit, and can be relentless, resulting in stress, burnout, poor teaching quality, and decreased productivity for its victims. Institutions with high levels of academic bullying may find it difficult to attract and retain new faculty members. In this workshop, we will examine the existing research on academic and workplace bullying in order to understand the various forms of incivility, bullying, and mobbing, and to learn to recognize their symptoms. Representatives from Legal Affairs and Faculty Affairs will also be present to help chairs and directors brainstorm strategies to create more welcoming cultures, at both the individual and institutional level, and to deal effectively with situations as soon as they arise.

The facilitation of discussion is a teaching technique that many of us use in our classes. Yet, so often we don't draw out the level of engagement we would like to see from our students, either in terms of quality or distribution of participation throughout the class. This workshop will highlight simple, yet effective, discussion facilitation and note-taking practices from the literature and the facilitators' teaching experiences. Participants will then work together to identify strategies for addressing the challlenges in facilitating discussion they have faced in their own classes.
