Held on Mon. April 1 and Tue. April 2, this Teaching Academy will introduce you to research on student learning, information processing and skill development, and to teaching strategies tailored to foster deep lasting learning in your students. Rather than simply listening to presenters, the sessions will be very interactive, and there will be time during the two days dedicated to apply the theories and research to your own courses.

Some of the topics discussed will include:

  • Student's Prior Knowledge
  • Information Processing and Knowledge Organization
  • Student Motivation
  • Practice and Feedback
  • Student Development
  • Course Climate
  • Metacognition

KSU part-time faculty members have access through OwlTrain to a large variety of training sessions provided by the university to all faculty and staff. These trainings focus on a variety of topics, tools, etc. For example, there are currently trainings on how to use D2L (from the basics to advanced uses), VoiceThread, SoftChalk, and many more teaching and technology tools. There are also trainings in how to use Adobe products, Microsoft Office products, and more. Most of these trainings are provided at no cost and may be face-to-face at a scheduled time or virtual and available 24/7.

Metacognition is a big word for a simple concept: thinking about our thinking. As professionals, we are constantly monitoring what is being asked of us, thinking about how we will accomplish the tasks at hand, and considering how we can improve the way we do things. However, this is a challenge for many college students. In this workshop, we will discuss metacognitive strategies you can teach your students to help them be successful—while still covering your course content.

As part-time faculty members we are often very busy with multiple ongoing tasks including full-time jobs, families, and research--it can be overwhelming. Using rubrics to grade student work can save you time and will clarify your expectations to your students. In this interactive and productive one-hour workshop you will learn about different types of rubrics, how to create one, and how to use it to clarify and speed up the grading process. Bring the description of one of your assignments and leave with the beginnings of an actual rubric you can use.
