This webinar will provide strategies for teaching large classes with a learning-centered approach. Large classes present challenges for instructors and learners alike, and many instructors struggle with how to scale up the active learning pedagogy that is effective in their smaller classes. Participants will consider the literature on effective teaching practices for large classes and identify solutions to the challenges discussed. The facilitators will present examples from the literature, as well as lessons learned from their own teaching and from working with other faculty who have faced similar challenges and worked to overcome them.

This workshop is for Deans, Chairs and other University Administrators. National data indicates that academic bullying happens more often than we would like to admit, and can be relentless, resulting in stress, burnout, poor teaching quality, and decreased productivity for its victims. Institutions with high levels of academic bullying may find it difficult to attract and retain new faculty members. In this workshop, we will examine the existing research on academic and workplace bullying in order to understand the various forms of incivility, bullying, and mobbing, and to learn to recognize their symptoms. Representatives from Legal Affairs and Faculty Affairs will also be present to help chairs and directors brainstorm strategies to create more welcoming cultures, at both the individual and institutional level, and to deal effectively with situations as soon as they arise.

The facilitation of discussion is a teaching technique that many of us use in our classes. Yet, so often we don't draw out the level of engagement we would like to see from our students, either in terms of quality or distribution of participation throughout the class. This workshop will highlight simple, yet effective, discussion facilitation and note-taking practices from the literature and the facilitators' teaching experiences. Participants will then work together to identify strategies for addressing the challlenges in facilitating discussion they have faced in their own classes.

As part-time faculty members, we have to be efficient as we prepare for class, communicate with our students, and grade student work. In this workshop, we will discuss practical strategies part-time faculty can use to save time planning and preparing for class. Workshop participants will have the opportunity to share their own strategies and will also leave with tools they can use to plan and deliver their courses.

Come experience what it might be like to work in a Team-Based Learning classroom. The experience 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. During the workshop, participants will experience a number of important elements in the Team-Based Learning approach. This includes the Readiness Assurance Process, completing team-activity worksheets, and peer review of team members. In addition, the facilitator will share anecdotal and other basic evidence of how the course setup positively impacts student performance.
