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.

Do your students come to class not having done the reading? Do they fail to turn in simple assignments? Do they seem disengaged? How can we get our students to care about our classes as much as we do? In this workshop, we will examine a few theories of motivation that may help explain some of these student behaviors. Then we will work together to brainstorm ways we can use this new knowledge to bring out the best in our students.

Late career facuty often find themselves uniquely situated between conflicting sentiments. On the one hand they have a sense of pride in the accomplishments of a long career and a sense of community with colleagues and students. On the other hand they are faced with uncertainty as the ground shifts beneath them -- with university consolidation, ever-evolving trends in teaching and scholarship, and retirement on the not-too-distant horizon. Is this a time for teaching innovation, legacy--building, preparing to launch into a new adventure, or simply waiting it out? This book club will seek to build community among late career faculty as we discuss Susan Robison's framework for navigating this phase, outlined in The Peak Performing Professor.

As college campuses become increasingly multicultural, we must broaden our readiness to teach international students. Using videos and vignettes, this seminar will highlight the potential impact of cultural differences in our courses. We will then introduce some tools to understand cultural differences, and discuss pedagogical strategies useful in cross-cultural contexts.

Since 1989, Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People has shown millions how to develop a long-term plan for success in their work and their lives. In this workshop, we will apply Richard Lyons’ adaptation of Covey’s seven principles to our careers as part-time faculty members. Come prepared to engage in interactive activities that will help you reflect on your role as an educator (including developing a Statement of Teaching Philosophy) and to make a plan for your continued success!
