We’ll talk about the place of civic engagement in higher education, including the role of arts and humanities and other fields in examining critical issues and advancing the public interest.

While a growing literature documents African history, cultural diversity, and contemporary trends, there is a glaring lack of accessible work on the initiatives of individuals and institutions currently tackling Afro-pessimism and Afro-ignorance among U.S. civil society. Therefore, the CETL-funded KSUAfricanist Faculty Learning Community is sponsoring a mini-symposium titled, "Teaching Africa in the 21st Century Classroom" in conjunction with an anticipated edited-volume on the same theme. The multidisciplinary participants will consist of contributing authors from KSU and other Georgia Colleges and Universities. This event is open to the public. Anyone interested in strategies for bringing Africa into university classrooms or would simply like to learn something about this diverse continent and its people are encouraged to attend.

The workshop will close with a Wine and Goldfish reception for all attendees.

We Band of Angels: The Untold Story of American Nurses Trapped on Bataan by the Japanese. Hailed by The New York Times Book Review as a "grippingly told" story of "power and relevance," here is the true, untold account of the first American women to prove their mettle under combat conditions. Later, during three years of brutal captivity at the hands of the Japanese, they also demonstrated their ability to survive. Filled with the thoughts and impressions of the women who lived it, "every page of this history is fascinating" (The Washington Post).

While the AAUP addresses general ethical responsibilities in its 1987 Statement on Professional Ethics and 1940 Statement of Principles on Academic Freedom and Tenure, as faculty we face many dilemmas that represent ethical conflicts that are not necessarily explicitly addressed in the AAUP statements. As with any potential ethical dilemma, clear cut answers are not always evident. Using a case study approach, this series of workshops will explore the types of ethical dilemmas faced by faculty and discuss issues and solutions.

Workshop E focuses on issues related to instructor competency (e.g., psychological/physical impairment, apathy, working outside of expertise, lack of objectivity, or theoretical bias), confidentiality issues (e.g., insider information, student disclosures, students discussing private lives of other students or faculty), academic freedom, and institutional responsibilities.

The KSU Online Course Quality Initiative mandates that all online classes must be submitted to CETL for a peer review of clarity and organization and I am actively recruiting additional faculty to serve as peer course reviewers. To meet the projected demand for reviewers, CETL is hosting another training session for prospective peer reviewers on Friday, March 26th, from 9 AM - 4 PM in the CETL Lab. Lunch and refreshments will be provided!

Successful completion of this workshop qualifies you to serve on the KSU Peer Review Team and simultaneously certifies you to teach online at KSU. Currently, peer course reviewers receive a $150 honorarium for each completed course review. Individuals who successfully complete this QM training may also be eligible to serve as peer reviewers for Quality Matters on QM-based course review teams.

Whether we intentionally design our courses to address issues of diversity (i.e., race/ethnicity, social class, gender, sexual orientation, religion, politics, etc.) or not, topics and discussion related to diversity are a reality in the classroom. Students in our classrooms are diverse and bring their diverse experiences with them, and we as faculty bring our own perspectives and cultural experiences to the classroom. Many times, we are hesitant to introduce these topics and don’t know how to manage them when these exchanges do occur. This workshop will not only provide an opportunity to examine strategies to steer such topics in a positive direction, it will encourage discussion of such topics in ways that bring relevance to course material and facilitate growth and learning for everyone.

Why should I conduct research with undergraduates?
How can I be a good mentor to my undergraduate researchers?
How can I get publications and presentations with undergraduate researchers?
What kind of funding is available for undergraduate research?
How can I make the process less time-consuming for myself?

The purpose of this training is to introduce you to the Quality Matters (QM) Rubric for Online and Hybrid Courses and, thus, to provide you with a framework for designing or improving your online course. During this hands-on workshop, we will discuss the KSU Online Course Quality Initiative, examine the QM Rubric in detail, summarize the research on effective practices in online course design and delivery, review several exemplars of effective (and not-so-effective) online course design, and generate a personalized course development/improvement plan. In addition to identifying the various Internet resources and KSU groups that support effective online teaching and learning, we will conclude by outlining the online course submission and peer review processes at KSU. Any remaining time will be devoted to participant Q & A.

At the completion of this workshop, you will be able to:
