What's the trouble with grades? Walvoord and Anderson (2010) state, when we talk about grades, educators have student learning most in mind. However, our students may have different perspectives about grades. Participants in this webinar will discuss grading processes and products that spur communication with students. We will identify research-based tools and strategies to motivate and engage students in grading practices to improve teaching and learning in our classrooms.

Part Time Faculty Note: This workshop is uncompensated. Part-time faculty who participate will not be compensated but should still enter participation hours in the time management system.

Have you ever told your students they are smart? How do you praise student performance? How do students respond to challenges in your class? This workshop will focus on Growth Mindset research from Carol Dweck. We will explore what it means for you to have a growth mindset and how you can encourage this mindset with your 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.

KSU Peer Reviewer Training is now being offered for those interested in becoming more involved in KSU's internal online course reviews using the Quality Matters rubric. This certification will be delivered as a two-week online course and includes a review of the QM program and its guiding principles. We will examine the KSU review process, delve deeper into the general standards, and provide participants the opportunity to practice writing feedback and reviewing a sample course. A required F2F session, or a synchronous online meeting, will be scheduled with the group on a date that most can attend. Alternative arrangements will be set up for those who cannot attend the F2F session. This session explores the internal review process and application of the skills learned in the online workshop. Participants find this aspect of the workshop very valuable.

The facilitation of discussion is a teaching technique that many of us use in our classes. Yet, so often we don't draw out the level of engagement we would like to see from our students, either in terms of quality or distribution of participation throughout the class. This short webinar highlights simple, yet effective, discussion facilitation and note-taking practices from the literature and the facilitators' teaching experiences.
