Come experience what it might be like to work in a Team-Based Learning classroom. The experience will be based in part on actual coursework from the facilitator’s nuclear engineering courses which were redesigned to be modeled after the Team-Based Learning approach of Michaelsen and Knight. However, the workshop is designed to appeal to a broad audience. In Team-Based Learning, the use of activities drives much of the instruction through extensive use of cooperative teams to enhance learning. During the workshop, participants will experience a number of important elements in the Team-Based Learning approach. This includes the Readiness Assurance Process, completing team-activity worksheets, and peer review of team members. In addition, the facilitator will share anecdotal and other basic evidence of how the course setup positively impacts student performance.

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.

Faculty who teach in the hybrid modality may be challenged by designing learning strategies that prepare students before they attend class and leveraging the best of both environments to measure student learning. This workshop will explore opportunities to create accountability and assessment options.

Peer coaching is a form of feeback that uses other faculty/staff to collect and provide assessment about areas you have targeted in your teaching. Benefits of this type of collaboration include: obtaining valuable feedback on your classroom performance, introducing others to new educational practices, modeling the value of assessment to the learners in the classroom, and quick propagation of ‘best practices’ within a community of educators. In this workshop, participants will learn about the principles behind peer coaching, tips on implementation, and get to see the process for producing and reporting peer coaching feedback.

When we assign students a project or activity, we often take for granted that they will understand what we are asking them to do and why. Students do not always have the skills and ability to determine this, though, which is why writing assignments with a clear purpose, that explains the task in full, and provides the criteria on which students will be evaluated is so important. This webinar will explore the TiLT framework for assignment creation. Bring an assignment you currently use in one of your classes to study and revise throughout the session.

This workshop is designed to help participants choose and use a variety of assessment tools and techniques for STEM courses that can help us better understand our students’ performance in the classroom. We will discuss important concepts underpinning successful classroom assessment, describe a variety of classroom assessment tools and techniques for STEM courses, and note connections to helpful literature. During the session each participant will have an opportunity to articulate their own assessment needs, select several options for their own course from among a variety of effective assessment tools and techniques, and plan for initial implementation of one or two tools and techniques.

Do you find your students are often underprepared for the rigor and expectations of your class? This is a common challenge many of us face, yet we are expected to teach these students and many of us feel intense pressure to reduce DFW rates. What should we do? Should we fail them? Do we need to do what some view as handholding or coddling? In this panel you will learn about research on this topic, and several faculty colleagues will share though-provoking, successful approaches to moving students where they need to be by first meeting students where they are. Come and discuss your ideas with us as you learn about what you can do in the classroom to help more of your students build momentum and truly succeed, without compromising the integrity of your course.

Do you find that students begin to tune you out just when things are getting interesting in class? Do they seem stuck on details they should already know? In this workshop we will explore research-based practices to reduce student cognitive load and help them learn more effectively in class. During this workshop we will: learn to recognize factors that cause bottlenecks in student information processing required for learning; describe ways to reduce cognitive load by helping students effectively process information; and plan strategies to reduce cognitive load in your classroom

This workshop previews the themes that will be explored in the Momentum Year workshop series for the whole year. We will start reviewing theories of student retention and the conditions they identify for student success. We will offer a preview of how these elements have been translated by the USG into the Momentum Year initiative that all of us are being asked to engage in. Out of all the elements of that initiative, we will focus on the pedagogical ones and how they can be integrated in all our courses.
