Multiple colleges at KSU have begun formally supporting the peer coaching process. This workshop is designed to support those efforts and expand participation across KSU. Peer coaching is a formative process conducted with another instructor to provide feedback about teaching in areas you have targeted for improvement in your classroom. It is specific, organized, constructive, collaborative, non-threatening, confidential, and focused on mutual benefits. The process generates valuable feedback on classroom performance, introduces participants to new educational practices, models the value of assessment to the learners in the classroom, and quickly propagates ‘best practices’ within a community of educators. In this workshop, participants will learn about successful peer coaching efforts from the literature, discuss the value of various steps in the peer coaching process, and practice providing peer coaching feedback for a case scenario and for the workshop context itself.

If your students often skip the readings in your class, or if they struggle to comprehend the content of text when they do read, this workshop is for you. In the workshop we will illuminate factors that make it difficult for students to comprehend what they are reading, discuss research-based approaches that support students’ comprehension of text, and plan strategies to help your students comprehend the readings for your course.

Why is it that so many student teams fail to live up to their potential? How can we design a process to create and manage more effective student teams? This workshop will introduce the research-based CATME team-maker and peer review tools. This online platform can be used directly, or its ideas adapted separately, to help produce high-performing teams in the classroom. Participants will explore some of the factors that research has uncovered for forming and managing effective student teams, and we will utilize the CATME system to observe how these factors can be operationalized.

This workshop highlights important components of the educational research process, often referred to as the Scholarship of Teahcing and Learning (SoTL). Building on participant backgrounds in scholarly teaching, we will highlight key aspects of carrying out various types of SoTL work (from the very small and personal to the very large and collaborative). Throughout, we will work together in groups to support each other as we generate personal plans for moving forward in our teaching and learning journeys. These plans will incorporate elements of SoTL that will help us investigate the impact of our pedagogical practices on teaching and learning.

Metacognition is a big word for a simple concept: thinking about our thinking. As professionals, we are constantly monitoring what is being asked of us, thinking about how we will accomplish the tasks at hand, and considering how we can improve the way we do things. However, this is a challenge for many college students. In this workshop, we will discuss metacognitive strategies you can teach your students to help them be successful—while still covering your course content.

The SoTL Writing Group is an informal gathering of faculty working on projects at any stage of the SoTL process, from idea generation to manuscript publication. In this group, faculty members share their ideas, exchange peer feedback, and receive professional mentoring as they work on individual or collaborative SoTL projects with the goal of enhancing student learning. Faculty may drop in and out of this group as their schedule permits; no registration is necessary.

If you’re interested in a career in academia, a teaching statement that describes your approach to teaching and learning will be a key requirement for future job applications. In this workshop, you will reflect on your beliefs about teaching and learning, identify theorists that align with your views, and articulate concrete ways your philosophy is enacted in online or traditional classroom settings. This workshop is designed for all graduate students interested in teaching or preparing materials for a job search.
