Come join this learning community by participating in this specially designed seminar series for junior faculty, though all are welcomed to participate.

Since each session builds on each other, we hope you will be able to attend all the meetings.  

 

Session 1:  “I wish I had known that earlier”: Using Informal (IEF) and Formal (ICES) Student Feedback to Improve Teaching and Learning

 

Wednesday, Sept.18, 2019
11:30 – 1:00
Room 428, Armory Building 
 
 

On our campus, the formal student ratings are called the Instructor and Course Evaluation System (ICES) which are administered at the end of your course. Through careful analysis, you can learn valuable information for next time, but the results are too late to help your current class.

 

However, by using an Informal Early Feedback (IEF) form early in this semester, you can receive timely feedback to immediately implement. You’ll get important information right now about what is successful and not as successful on both the teaching and learning.  In this session, we will focus on the use of several informal feedback mechanisms and help you develop your own individualized IEF form to implement right away. (and come back to CITL for consultation!)

 

This workshop counts towards the Graduate Teacher Certificate, the Teacher Scholar Certificate or the Certificate in Foundations of Teaching.

Session 2: Effective Questioning Skills to Enhance Student Engagement

 

Have you ever asked a question and you’re met with silence? Or do the same students always eagerly raise their hands to answer. Or perhaps students don’t know how to answer questions requiring higher level thinking.

 

We all know the importance of including questions in our teaching.  Questions serve to motivate students, to assess students’ understanding, and to engage them in a thought-provoking discussion. Effective questioning skills require us to plan carefully not only the type of questions, but also the timing and sequencing.  Come join this session to learn about how to create an effective question, but also how to encourage students to participate.   

 

This workshop counts towards the Graduate Teacher Certificate, the Teacher Scholar Certificate or the Certificate in Foundations of Teaching.

Session 3: Critical Factors for Motivating Students to Learn

Have you ever said, “If only my students were more motivated, they would be better students”? Did you then attribute their lack of engagement as being lazy or apathetic? 

 

Perhaps what is at stake here is not about the quantity of student motivation, but rather the quality. The type of motivation can affect the direction, persistence, and behaviors of our students. Join this session to learn what aspects of the class and your teaching, in addition to helpful strategies, influence the resultant type of student motivational goals and expectations.

 

This workshop counts towards the Graduate Teacher Certificate, the Teacher Scholar Certificate or the Certificate in Foundations of Teaching.

Session 4: The Art of Lecturing

.

The lecture mode is the oldest teaching method; however, when compared to other teaching methods, it is often not as effective in areas such as student retention of information, transfer of knowledge, and problem-solving.  The traditional lecture method is the most widely used across the world (Smith & Valentine, 2012).  In this interactive session, we will explore ways and conditions under which the lecture method can be more effective; e.g., in its preparation and organization, delivery, and student-learning checkpoints.

 

This workshop counts towards the Graduate Teacher Certificate, the Teacher Scholar Certificate or the Certificate in Foundations of Teaching.

Session 5: Make Teaching Stick - Six Ways to Make Your Lessons More Memorable

.

We spend hours making decisions on critical concepts and skills for our students to master; we think about the best ways to present those concepts; we plan activities to engage our students.  Yet… some of our students just don’t get it. Maybe what our class lacked was “stickiness.” In this interactive session, we will discuss the six principles that Chip and Dan Heath propose in their book Made to Stick: Why Some Ideas Survive and Others Die” and ways to apply them to our teaching.

 

This workshop counts towards the Graduate Teacher Certificate, the Teacher Scholar Certificate or the Certificate in Foundations of Teaching.
