As the semester intensifies, it’s easy to get overwhelmed and lose track of yourself as a teacher: who you are, where you’ve come from, and why you teach the way you do. In this workshop, we invite you to pause and reflect on your teaching journey in words and images. Together we’ll cover some basic principles of verbal-visual storytelling, then craft brief narratives centered on key moments in our teaching practices and experiences. All materials will be provided; no prior skills necessary, just a willingness to jump in and put something down on paper. This workshop is geared especially toward graduate student teachers and those interested in teaching, but KSU instructors of all experience levels are welcome.

This interactive webinar takes a proactive approach to classroom assessment. We will examine factors that contribute to a constructive classroom climate, review university policies and resources, and identify intervention basics. Knowing our students, inviting their feedback, and being prepared to respond compassionately and professionally are essential to resolving problematic student behaviors, addressing academic misconduct, and supporting students in crisis.

If you’re interested in a career in academia, a teaching statement that describes your approach to teaching and learning will be a key requirement for future job applications. In this workshop, you will reflect on your beliefs about teaching and learning, identify theorists that align with your views, and articulate concrete ways your philosophy is enacted in online or traditional classroom settings. This workshop is designed for all graduate students interested in teaching or preparing materials for a job search.

Research shows that community and a sense of belonging are associated with improved motivation and learning in undergraduate instruction. However, graduate student teachers seldom receive specific training in creating community when teaching undergraduates. This webinar introduces graduate students to community-building strategies in the undergraduate classroom to improve undergraduate learning.
