Junior Faculty Seminar Series: Best Practices to Improve Student Learning

Come join this learning community by participating in this specially designed seminar series for junior faculty, though all are welcomed to participate. We'll share strategies and best practices for effective and efficient teaching. There will be great conversations, handouts, and lunch! Since each session builds on each other, we hope you will be able to attend all the meetings.  

 

Session 2: Active Teaching to Active Learning: Strategies for Deep Learning and Retention

Wednesday, Sept. 27, 2017
11:30 – 1:00
Room 428, Armory Building 
 

Learning is not a spectator sport (Chickering & Gamson). Students must be cognitively, physically, and affectively engaged for deeper learning and retention to occur. Yet, we have to admit, there are many distractions and the attention span of our students can be relatively short. How do we manage the amount of content that we should teach while providing opportunities for our students to be engaged in active learning?

 

We’ll begin by identifying activities where student are involved in doing, seeing, writing, feeling, and talking. Also, we’ll learn about Classroom Assessment Techniques (CATS), which actively engage students while providing valuable feedback about their learning.

Description:

What is this thing you’re supposed to include in your application?  Some institutions call it a teaching philosophy, some a teaching statement, others a teaching philosophy statement, but more and more places require such a document from applicants for faculty positions.

I’ll be honest with you: your teaching philosophy statement is difficult to write, and different institutions want different things out of it.  But there are some general rules you can follow to help your statement do its job of telling your future colleagues what kind of teacher you are and will be.

Come to this workshop to begin the process of identifying your teaching philosophy, deciding which parts of it belong in your statement, and avoiding common mistakes.

Session 3: Improving Our Testing and Grading of Student Achievement

 

Wednesday, Oct. 4, 2017

Room 428, Armory Building 
 

Have you heard your students say this?

  • “You’re unfair”
  • “We weren’t taught that”
  • “This test is too hard and too long” 

The task of assessing and grading student learning is one of the most complex and stressful responsibilities of the faculty member and, at the same time, is one of the most important.  It is critical that the grading process is fair, reliable, valid, and relevant so that the resulting grade is an accurate representation of a student’s achievement. When done properly, the grade and accompanying feedback are additional teaching opportunities where students can improve their learning.  In this session, we will analyze your exams using the key principles of test construction and practice effective grading practices.

Session 4: Enabling Students to Think Critically and Problem-Solve Creatively

Wednesday, Oct. 11, 2017
11:30 – 1:00
Room 428, Armory Building 
 

As the world becomes more global and information grows exponentially, our students are facing increasingly more complex problems whose solutions cannot be readily found in textbooks. Our responsibility is then to enable our students to approach issues through an inquiry-based instructional model in tackling authentic real-world problems.  As an illustration, problem-based learning (PBL) utilizes a guided learning by discovery approach. This model requires us to reconsider our role as instructors, to reexamine the content; (e.g., what and how much); and to rethink how we will evaluate our students as we support them in their development from a novice to an expert.

 

In this session, we will begin our conversation and practice this teaching (and learning) model. Participants in this highly interactive workshop will receive a handout packet with resources, strategies, and sample assignments.

Session 5: Best Practices from Face-to-Face Courses to Online Courses

 

Wednesday, Oct. 18, 2017
11:30 – 1:00
Room 428, Armory Building 
 

When we start designing our more traditional face-to-face courses, we typically implement a backward design where we identify the critical learning goals or outcomes, determine the acceptable evidence (through exams, projects, presentations, etc.), and then plan the learning experiences where students can learn and practice the necessary skills and knowledge. 

 

In designing an online course, we should start with the same pedagogical framework of course design. In addition, the same critical components of engagement, motivation, clear communication and explanation, and, yes, even active learning can be achieved in an online environment by maximizing the available technology-enhanced tools.  This session will highlight the strategies of our professors who have successfully implemented (or modified) the best practices of their face-to-face courses to their online courses.

Location: Interrupting a (Student) Feedback Loop: Revising a Course through Student Feedback
Description:

ICES, IEF, and reflection essays come and go, particularly as your program stretches on. Rather than reading and filing that feedback, we can use those resources to consider long-term changes to a particular course, future courses, or our own pedagogy. This workshop will address different types and forms of student feedback, tailoring your questions/approaches to generate useful feedback, and using student feedback over time to develop and revise a course. This workshop may be particularly useful for instructors with experience teaching the same course repeatedly but will be applicable to anyone hoping to teach, revise, or develop a course in the future.

This is a TA-to-TA workshop, run by one of CITL's Graduate Affiliates.

Session 6: What We Know About Visual Learning & Thinking Applied to PowerPoint Presentations and More

 

Wednesday, Nov. 1, 2017
11:30 – 1:00
Room 428, Armory Building 
 
 

As we have increasingly moved from blackboard to PowerPoint slides, it is essential to examine our slides to see if they enhance or detract from our students learning and comprehension.  When a PP deck is horribly designed, it can ruin our presentation. It is difficult enough for our students to see visually ineffective, confusing slides and then have their instructors read off the slides! What strategies can we use to ensure that our PP slides and other multimedia are effective tools that do not interfere with the message?    

 

Neuroscience and cognitive research have discovered how our brains process auditory and visual information, visual imagery being more easily remembered than some other forms of information.  Join this session to learn more about visual learning and thinking and how to apply that research to our teaching.
