What's the trouble with grades? Walvoord and Anderson (2010) state, when we talk about grades, educators have student learning most in mind. However, our students may have different perspectives about grades. Participants in this webinar will discuss grading processes and products that spur communication with students. We will identify research-based tools and strategies to motivate and engage students in grading practices to improve teaching and learning in our classrooms.

Part Time Faculty Note: This workshop is uncompensated. Part-time faculty who participate will not be compensated but should still enter participation hours in the time management system.

Do your students come to class not having done the reading? Do they fail to turn in simple assignments? Do they seem disengaged? How can we get our students to care about our classes as much as we do? In this workshop, we will examine a few theories of motivation that may help explain some of these student behaviors. Then we will work together to brainstorm ways we can use this new knowledge to bring out the best in our students.

If you are a KSU part-time instructor wishing to energize your teaching and to take it to the next level, this two-day program is for you!

The 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
