Course design is one of several important elements of teaching for student success. This interactive workshop will provide a framework for self-reflection about opportunities for course redesign through the lens of student success. The framework will emphasize three research-based elements: mastery, metacognition, and motivation. Join us to reflect on the framework and to strategize and set priorities to improve student outcomes.

Midterms have passed and finals are coming up. These are two times in the semester when instances of academic dishonesty are at their highest. Do you feel comfortable and prepared in addressing academic dishonesty in your course? This workshop will provide you with step-by-step guidance on how to deal with occurrences of possible academic integrity issues. We will discuss what cheating might look like, how to deal with it, and provide guidance for discussion you may need to have with students.

Employing interactions in the classroom is one way to improve student engagement. By getting student involved in class discussions, interactive classroom activities, and classroom assessment techniques, students can create a deeper connection to the content.

We must intentionally think about where we want students to go in order to help them get there. Teaching with purpose requires us to first identify our course goals and objectives and create assignments that are aligned. Often we, as instructors, know why were doing certain things in our courses, but it might not be apparent to students. This workshop will explore the Transparency Framework (of purpose/task/criteria) developed by Mary-Ann Winkelmes, as it relates to assignment creation. We will introduce the framework and apply it to redesigning an assignment you currently use in your course.

Exams are a helpful assessment tool if aligned to your course objectives and goals. However, they can present a challenge with issues of academic dishonesty depending on the structure and design of the exam. This workshop will explore strategies for creating test questions and an environment that can promote academic integrity. We will also discuss the process of addressing academic integrity issues if they do arise. CETL is partnering with the Department of Student Conduct and Academic Integrity to deliver this workshop.

Our previous workshops on motivation have focused on creating a supportive environment, enhancing student self-efficacy, and establishing the value of the material. In this workshop we will address new research that reveals that student motivation can be further enhanced with the establishment of rapport and trust between the faculty member and the students. Join us to explore this new information and discover more and better ways to motivate our students to succeed.
