Do you spend so much time going over prerequisite material that you don't get to nearly enough new material? Come to CETL and discuss strategies to handle this.

Can creativity and innovation be part of significant student learning experiences? Effectiveness in the classroom depends on thinking/reflecting about learning objectives, designing or tweaking a course, and developing learning strategies. If you want to renew/reflect/create and search for new ideas this interdisciplinary workshop will explore creativity from different perspectives like: cognitive neuroscientists' studies of the brain, creativity in non-Western cultures, and the role of collaboration in the creative process. Participants will be able to: 1) develop pedagogies for teaching and assessing creativity in specific disciplines; and 2) develop rubrics or models for creative student learning outcomes.

Being with a/r/tography Book Club. Participants will receive a copy of Being with a/r/tography, a collection of essays that explain and exemplify the arts-based qualitative research methodology developed by four scholars who are artists, researchers, and teachers. The book includes three sections: 1) self-study and autobiography; 2) communities of a/r/tography practice; and 3) ethics and activism. An introduction contextualizes and theorizes the methodological framework and a conclusion provides considerations of issues related to assessment, validity, and interpretation. a/r/tography is significant for qualitative research in all the social sciences and the health sciences including communication studies, nursing, counseling psychology, and arts therapy. This session will serve as a springboard for a discussion of qualitative research in higher education.
