Maggie Berg and Barbara Seeber argue in The Slow Professor (2016) that "In the corporate university, power is transferred from faculty to managers, economic justifications dominate, and the familiar 'bottom line' eclipses pedagogical and intellectual concerns. Slow Professors advocate deliberation over acceleration. We need time to think, and so do our students. Time for reflection and open-ended inquiry is not a luxury but is crucial to what we do." (p.x) They suggest that in taking the slow approach to teaching, we must shift our focus from impact to pleasure, because "it may be that pleasure -- experienced by the instructor and the students" is the most important predictor of 'learning outcomes.'" (p.36). In this book club we will consider Berg and Seeber's "pedagogy of pleasure, " what it means for ourselves and for our students, and how slowing down to reflect and deliberate can improve our effectiveness in the classroom and beyond.

How can we help students "own" their learning? Leverage social learning theory! Collaborative learning among students on assignments and projects is a high-impact educational practice that can be implemented in a variety of ways in a variety of content areas. Benefits include building authentic work-place skills, exposure to varied perspectives and valuable insights from other students, and the potential to learn more effectively than one could on their own. In this workshop, participants will experience several modes of collaborative learning as we explore the research behind designing top-notch collaborative learning experiences we can implement with our own students.

Laura Rendon's book Sentipensante (sensing/thinking) pedagogy offers a holistic approach to teaching in higher education. Rendon's hybrid memoir and research study proposes a vision of higher education that balances the relationship between intuition and intellectualism. Described as "a pedagogy that embraces wholeness, social justice, and liberation," Rendon describes how to integrate a consonant pedagogy that prepares students for civic action, sustainability, and community building.

Angela Duckworth has spent many years studying what predicts high levels of success. She has found that those among us who reach the highest levels of achievement demonstrate over time a combination of interest, practice, purpose and hope - or what she terms "grit." Gritty people focus on one thing and continue in the face of adversity. They may get disappointed, but do not remain so for long. They continue to practice despite setbacks because they are not only interested but also find meaning in what they do. Join us for a discussion of how we can apply her findings to the context of academia and how we as faculty, and our students, can increase our grit to achieve our immediate goals and greater purpose.

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.

College teachers are well aware that students learn best when they are not fearful or anxious. We also know students lives may be affected by poverty, addiction, interpersonal violence, divorce, or the death of a family member or friend. Drawing upon developmental theories and recent studies about grit (Stoltz 2014) and perseverance through stressful times (Brown 2015), this workshop offers tools for teachers to discuss grades, classroom performance, or learning strategies for students in crisis.

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.

Late career facuty often find themselves uniquely situated between conflicting sentiments. On the one hand they have a sense of pride in the accomplishments of a long career and a sense of community with colleagues and students. On the other hand they are faced with uncertainty as the ground shifts beneath them -- with university consolidation, ever-evolving trends in teaching and scholarship, and retirement on the not-too-distant horizon. Is this a time for teaching innovation, legacy--building, preparing to launch into a new adventure, or simply waiting it out? This book club will seek to build community among late career faculty as we discuss Susan Robison's framework for navigating this phase, outlined in The Peak Performing Professor.
