Fall 2019 Workshop Descriptions and Registration Information

 

Copyright in the Classroom Webinar (Virtual)

Have you ever heard yourself say, “Should I upload this document? Can I use this image? If I can show this movie in class why can’t I put it online?” If you find copyright confusing, you are not alone. This webinar will introduce you to some basic guidelines about educational fair use and how to apply those guidelines in your courses. After a brief introduction to fair use and the TEACH Act, we will address some of your specific questions during this online webinar. A Zoom link will be emailed to registrants a few days before the webinar.

Course Redesign Workshop (Face-to-Face)

When you renovate your house, it often means taking apart a comfortable space to meet your current household needs. You get ideas from friends – or a decorator – and come up with new ideas. It can be a messy process, but at the end you’re happy with the results. When you redesign your course, the same principles can apply. In this collaborative workshop, we will reflect on your current course- and module-level objectives and analyze your assessments and scaffolded assignments for alignment. We will examine other principles of universal design to help you maximize student engagement and success. By the end of the workshop, you should come away with some practical ideas and a roadmap for redesigning your course.

Motivation and Metacognition Workshop (Face-to-Face)

Motivation and metacognition are two elements important of teaching that increase student success (Ambrose et al., 2010; Schunk, 2006). In this interactive workshop, we will explore metacognition and motivation, determine how these can be woven in your current course (any modality), and establish the student-learning benefits. By the end of this workshop, you may be ready to infuse your course with these strategies.

Student Engagement Techniques Workshop (Face-to-Face)

When you check for understanding during class you are able to determine the gaps in learning. Formative assessment checks help both you and your students make adjustments. Join me for this workshop to explore different ways to assess your students using student engagement techniques, such as student response systems, quick writes, and questioning tools.
