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 A focuses on issues that impact learning and student morale such as the instructors' methods and practices regarding the maintenance of discipline and order, excuse policies for missed classes, making changes in the course after the term is under way, and managing disruptive, difficult, disturbed, and scary students.

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.

Filled with real-life examples, the book offers research-based suggestions for dealing with this disruptive and negative behavior in the academic workplace" (from Amazon.com). “The authors combine their thorough knowledge about incivility and workplace bullying with their deep insights into academic culture and changes taking place in the higher education sector.

This workshop will demonstrate the use of virtual worlds in education and explore the possibilities for applicable teaching in this environment. We will be utilizing dynamic in-world tools to emphasize the effectiveness of the virtual world.

But why this environment and, most of all, why me? It is our belief that in the near future our students (digital natives) will not differentiate online learning from "traditional" education. If we ask ourselves, "Can we teach technology to traditional students in ‘traditional’ formats? We know we can. The bigger question is “Are we truly tapping the full potential of tomorrow's learner?’ We believe the virtual environment this presentation encompasses will afford educational agencies the opportunity to not only more fully explore the digital natives’ potential, but to grow it."

Nearly two-thirds of students who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT) report feeling unsafe at school because of their sexual orientation and/or gender expression. Sadly, the harassment they face is not just initiated by fellow students, as various members of the school community make (or silently condone through inaction) homophobic remarks such as “faggot” or “dyke” or “that’s so gay.”

Are you currently conducting or interested in pursuing research in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL)? Were you aware that all SoTL research, regardless of discipline, requires approval by Kennesaw's Institutional Review Board (IRB) if you intend to present or publish findings that include data you obtained from students?

Dr. Ginny Zhan (Chair of KSU's Institutional Review Board) and Dr. Tom Pusateri (CETL Associate Director) will lead a discussion on the ethical issues faculty should consider when conducting SoTL research, such as obtaining informed consent from students, avoiding conflicts in your dual role as a teacher and researcher, maintaining confidentiality of student information. They will also suggest strategies for submitting a successful IRB application for SoTL research.
