The Research on Teaching and Learning Community (RTLC, formerly RLC) provides a platform where faculty members collaborate on scholarly inquiry into student learning which advances the practice of teaching (also known as the scholarship of teaching and learning or SoTL). Faculty members are welcome to join the community, share their ideas, and work together on SoTL projects with the aim of making the research public in the form of conference presentations and journal publications.

Students are not empty slates. They enter our classrooms with experiences and beliefs that shape their readiness to learn. Most of the time prior knowledge is the foundation for new learning, but sometimes prior knowledge can actually impede it. This workshop will highlight research on prior knowledge, beliefs and misconceptions. Participants will generate strategies to capitalize on relevant prior knowledge and productively challenge student misconceptions.

This workshop will focus on the changes in advising and mentoring due to the consolidation of SPSU and Kennesaw State University (KSU). Currently at SPSU every faculty must act as a faculty advisor and mentor for students as assigned by the department chair. The advising and mentoring is considered as a part of teaching activity for tenure and promotion evaluation.

Learning Outcomes: Upon completion of the workshop, participants will:
¥ Be able to explain the current status of advising and mentoring at SPSU
¥ Be familiar with the current status of advising and mentoring at KSU
¥ Know the status of advising and mentoring at new University after consolidation.

Have you modified your instruction to improve student learning? Teachers assess their student's learning daily and adjust instruction accordingly. But what part do our students play in these ongoing, formative processes? This workshop focuses on learning-centered strategies for classroom assessments to boost student motivation and learning.
