Join us for a lively discussion of the book "Teaching with Your Mouth Shut" by Donald Finkel. The first 12 participants who sign up for the book club receive a complimentary copy of the book. In this book, Finkel challenges the model of teaching as transmission or telling students what they should know. Without discounting the importance of the captivating lecture, he offers other images of good teaching. Finkel identifies activities by which we can deepen our students?learning with our mouths shut.

Part-time faculty members have experience and knowledge to share, but we don't always know the best way to convey this information to our students. In this workshop, we will discuss a variety of teaching practices that can enhance student learning in your classroom--and strategies that may make your life easier, as well.

Are students different from 10-15 years ago or did you just grow old? Generational theorists agree that the current cohort of students, dubbed Millennials, is indeed unique in formative experiences, beliefs, attitudes, and goals. However, the usual characterization of Millennials as facile with technology, chronically multitasking, and incurably entitled misses the mark and is not conducive to productive pedagogical reflections. In this workshop, we will examine the societal trends that have shaped our students and affected their readiness for college and their attitudes about learning. We will link Millennial theory to the learning sciences to draw teaching implications for fostering students' intellectual development and metacognitive skills.

Research shows that the popular saying "Practice makes perfect" is not always true. Sometimes practice only reinforces bad habits. Research has identified the features of productive practice, including the kinds of feedback that must accompany it. In this workshop, we will review this research, and generate strategies for embedding deliberate practice into our courses.
