Do you find that students begin to tune you out just when things are getting interesting in class? Do they seem stuck on details they should already know? In this workshop we will explore research-based practices to reduce student cognitive load and help them learn more effectively in class. During this workshop we will: learn to recognize factors that cause bottlenecks in student information processing required for learning; describe ways to reduce cognitive load by helping students effectively process information; and plan strategies to reduce cognitive load in your classroom

The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) focuses on investigations of teaching practices and student learning within a discipline or across disciplines in higher education. If you are curious about your students’ learning and want to explore the intersection of teaching and scholarship, join us for this interactive webinar, where you’ll gain practical suggestions for any stage of the SoTL research process, from generating initial ideas to presenting or publishing the research.

This workshop previews the themes that will be explored in the Momentum Year workshop series for the whole year. We will start reviewing theories of student retention and the conditions they identify for student success. We will offer a preview of how these elements have been translated by the USG into the Momentum Year initiative that all of us are being asked to engage in. Out of all the elements of that initiative, we will focus on the pedagogical ones and how they can be integrated in all our courses.

This webinar is for all graduate students and faculty who are interested in designing engaging lecture-discussions. The most successful educators treat lectures and discussions as conversations with their students (Bain, 2004). This webinar focuses on designing lectures that effectively blend class discussion to boost student engagement and improve learning.

How can we help students "own" their learning? Leverage social learning theory! Collaborative learning among students on assignments and projects is a high-impact educational practice that can be implemented in a variety of ways in a variety of content areas. Benefits include building authentic work-place skills, exposure to varied perspectives and valuable insights from other students, and the potential to learn more effectively than one could on their own. In this workshop, participants will experience several modes of collaborative learning as we explore the research behind designing top-notch collaborative learning experiences we can implement with our own students.

Higher education in the United States continues to shift from monocultural to multicultural. Part of this shift is the increased presence of faculty who have lived experiences or cultural identities connected to many parts of the world. International faculty bring rich perspectives and experiences that enhance the learning environment for students and contribute to institutional goals, particularly at a time when global engagement is being emphasized. In this workshop, we will explore the challenges and rewards of being an international faculty member and offer ways in which international faculty can use their cultural identities and experiences to 1) expose students to different worldviews and experiences, 2) expand the scholarship of teaching and learning through different lenses, and 3) create global institutions that match the interconnectedness of a global society.

In this webinar you can experience what it might be like to work in an online Team-Based Learning classroom. This session 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.
