This event is full. Registration has been closed. Using Saundra McGuire’s book, Teach Students How to Learn, participants will explore the role that metacognition plays in student learning. We will discuss and practice a variety of adaptable teaching strategies that will encourage students in any course to practice deep, reflective learning. In addition, we will develop a list of questions for Dr. McGuire, who will visit the KSU campus for a presentation and book signing as part of the Gateways 2 Completion project.

This workshop will provide strategies for teaching large classes with a learning-centered approach. Large classes present challenges for instructors and learners alike, and many instructors struggle with how to scale up the active learning pedagogy that is effective in their smaller classes. Participants will discuss their own challenges in this regard, consider the literature on effective teaching practices for large classes, and work together to identify solutions to the challenges discussed. The facilitators will inform the discussion with examples from the literature, as well as lessons learned from their own teaching and from working with other faculty who have faced similar challenges and worked to overcome them.

Held on Mon. April 3 and Tue. April 4, this Teaching Academy will introduce you to research on student learning, information processing and skill development, and to teaching strategies tailored to foster deep lasting learning in your students. Rather than simply listening to presenters, the sessions will be very interactive, and there will be time during the two days dedicated to apply the theories and research to your own courses.

Some of the topics discussed will include:

  • Student's Prior Knowledge
  • Information Processing and Knowledge Organization
  • Student Motivation
  • Practice and Feedback
  • Student Development
  • Course Climate
  • Metacognition

NOTE: This event required an application and is not open for general registration.

Dr. Huston states: “Men and women approach decisions differently, though not necessarily in the ways we have been led to believe. Stress? It actually makes women more focused. Confidence? A healthy dose of self-questioning leads to much stronger decisions. And despite popular misconceptions, women are just as decisive as men — though they may pay a price for it.” This book club will explore how the decision making process differs between men and women, and we will apply those insights to the classroom. What are the implications for students making decisions about their studies, or how to act in teams, or how to choose majors? What can we do as instructors to create environments where multiple ways of making decisions are valued and respected? We will also touch on the implications of different decision making processes for women faculty when it comes to establishing their competence, leadership, and collegiality.
