An awareness of how the mind processes and remembers information can be a student's key to unlocking effective and transferable learning strategies. This workshop, based on the latest research in educational and cognitive psychology, will help you embed instruction on how people learn alongside your course content.

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:

  1. What are the goals and objectives of KSU's It’s About Engagement initiative?
  2. How do faculty and students participate in It’s About Engagement?
  3. 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.

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. CETL is partnering with the Department of Student Conduct and Academic Integrity to deliver this workshop.

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. Join me for this workshop to explore different options for creating engagement and interactions in the classroom.

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.
