How can we help students "own" their learning? Leverage social learning theory! Collaborative learning among students on assignments and projects is a high-impact educational practice that can be implemented in a variety of ways in a variety of content areas. Benefits include building authentic work-place skills, exposure to varied perspectives and valuable insights from other students, and the potential to learn more effectively than one could on their own. In this workshop, participants will experience several modes of collaborative learning as we explore the research behind designing top-notch collaborative learning experiences we can implement with our own students.

This workshop is designed for full-time faculty on the tenure track who will be submitting their portfolios in Fall for a multiyear review. While all the rules, schedules, forms and procedures can be found in the Faculty Affairs website, preparing all the relevant documentation is a momentous endeavor that can generate questions and perplexities. Furthermore, the P&T narrative is a genre few faculty are practiced in. We will review requirements and timelines, as well as share common pitfalls and suggestions for crafting an effective portfolio.

This workshop is designed for full-time faculty on the tenure track who will be submitting their portfolios in Fall for a pre-tenure review. While all the rules, schedules, forms and procedures can be found in the Faculty Affairs website, preparing all the relevant documentation is a momentous endeavor that can generate questions and perplexities. Furthermore, the narrative is a genre few faculty are practiced in. We will review requirements and timelines, as well as share common pitfalls and suggestions for crafting an effective portfolio. Full-time non-tenure track faculty in departments that require a third year review should consult with their chairs to understand the expectations for that review.

Introverts are some of the most creative and productive people, but are often stereotyped as shy and forced to navigate work and class environments designed for extroverts. With the rise of group work in classes, emphasis on interdisciplinary collaboration, and open discussions of often contentious issues in faculty meetings, introverts can feel marginalized. Yet, this need not be the case. In this book Susan Cain examines the power of introverts and how they can leverage their strengths to thrive in these contexts. She also provides valuable incites for extrovert faculty who work with and teach introverts.

Have you found yourself telling your students they should study two hours for every one hour of class time… that they should know their learning style… that they should listen to classical music while they complete their math homework… and then wondered if your words of advice are actually true? Join us for this fun, informative workshop. We will even ensure that we use more than 10% of our brains to decide whether the evidence supports or rejects these and other learning myths!
