Could this system work for your courses? Join the discussion!

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.

Angela Duckworth has spent many years studying what predicts high levels of success. She has found that those among us who reach the highest levels of achievement demonstrate over time a combination of interest, practice, purpose and hope - or what she terms "grit." Gritty people focus on one thing and continue in the face of adversity. They may get disappointed, but do not remain so for long. They continue to practice despite setbacks because they are not only interested but also find meaning in what they do. Join us for a discussion of how we can apply her findings to the context of academia and how we as faculty, and our students, can increase our grit to achieve our immediate goals and greater purpose.

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.
