As our modern lives become busier and the fast-paced world in which we live draws our attention in multiple directions, we have to make choices about what we will do and how we will spend our time. College students are no different. If faculty want students to prioritize their courses, come to class prepared, and spend adequate time on assignments and studying, it is helpful to understand how human motivation works. This 75-minute workshop will introduce several motivation theories and provide opportunities for faculty to identify ways in which they can enhance and direct student motivation to increase engagement in their courses.

KSU's It’s About Engagement initiative fosters learning through participation in high impact experiences in undergraduate research, internships/co-ops, and service learning. It’s About Engagement is integral to KSU's mission and vision to "offer high-quality and productive undergraduate ... and co-curricular programs" that "empower the members and graduates of the university community to have the vision, ability, and courage to transform the future." In this workshop, we will explore how It’s About Engagement relates to our own contexts by investigating these questions:

What are the goals and objectives of KSU's It’s About Engagement initiative?

How do faculty and students participate in It’s About Engagement?

What are the characteristics of an It’s About Engagement course?

Learning objectives can sometimes seem static and impersonal in nature. How can we make them come to life in the classroom? Write performance criteria! Performance criteria are the expectations given to learners before a performance that define the characteristics which make up a high quality performance related to achieving a learning objective. Participants attending the workshop will be able to articulate the value of writing and using performance criteria, practice using a methodology for writing performance criteria, and assess performance criteria to improve quality.

In this webinar, we will discuss how we can grade student work and give feedback that they can use to improve their performance in class. This webinar is geared toward part-time faculty who have a limited amount of time to spend on their courses, but all faculty can benefit from thinking critically and reflectively about their grading practices. Topics that will be covered include rubrics, checklists, minimal marking, and targeted feedback and how to apply them in all disciplines.

Metacognition is a big word for a simple concept: thinking about our thinking. As professionals, we are constantly monitoring what is being asked of us, thinking about how we will accomplish the tasks at hand, and considering how we can improve the way we do things. However, this is a challenge for many college students. In this workshop, we will discuss metacognitive strategies you can teach your students to help them be successful—while still covering your course content.

When we assign students a project or activity, we often take for granted that they will understand what we are asking them to do and why. Students do not always have the skills and ability to determine this, though, which is why writing assignments with a clear purpose, that explains the task in full, and provides the criteria on which students will be evaluated is so important. This webinar will explore the TiLT framework for assignment creation. Bring an assignment you currently use in one of your classes to study and revise throughout the session.
