Introverts are some of the most creative and productive people, but are often stereotyped as shy and forced to navigate work and class environments designed for extroverts. With the rise of group work in classes, emphasis on interdisciplinary collaboration, and open discussions of often contentious issues in faculty meetings, introverts can feel marginalized. Yet, this need not be the case. In this book Susan Cain examines the power of introverts and how they can leverage their strengths to thrive in these contexts. She also provides valuable incites for extrovert faculty who work with and teach introverts.

In this webinar you can experience what it might be like to work in an online Team-Based Learning classroom. This session will be based in part on actual coursework from the facilitator's nuclear engineering courses which were redesigned to be modeled after the Team-Based Learning approach of Michaelsen and Knight. However, the workshop is designed to appeal to a broad audience. In Team-Based Learning, the use of activities drives much of the instruction through extensive use of cooperative teams to enhance learning.

Interested in exploring the idea of teaching in a learning community? As a high-impact practice, learning communities benefit students in multiple ways, but also benefit the faculty who teach in them by providing a framework for cross-disciplinary connections. In this workshop, we will consider how you might be able to turn an area of interest into a learning community. In addition, Dr. Vaught will demonstrate how he, in collaboration with colleagues, has effectively designed multiple learning communities for maximum student impact.

Higher education in the United States continues to shift from monocultural to multicultural. Part of this shift is the increased presence of faculty who have lived experiences or cultural identities connected to many parts of the world. International faculty bring rich perspectives and experiences that enhance the learning environment for students and contribute to institutional goals, particularly at a time when global engagement is being emphasized. In this workshop, we will explore the challenges and rewards of being an ÒinternationalÓ faculty member and offer ways in which international faculty can use their cultural identities and experiences to 1) expose students to different worldviews and experiences, 2) expand the scholarship of teaching and learning through different lenses, and 3) create global institutions that match the interconnectedness of a global society.
