Critical Thinking, Consensus, and Connecting: Techniques for the Face-to-Face Classroom

Schedule: Wednesday, December 14, 2022, 02:00 PM – 03:30 PM
Location: CTL 1232/1233 (700 California)
Instructors: Erica Stevens Abbitt, Andrew Allen, David Andrews, Frances (Frankie) Cachon, Laura Chittle
After two years of sweatpants, Zoom calls, and remote teaching and learning, we found ourselves returning to in-person teaching in a way that is both familiar and unique. For some students and instructors, this was their first in-person University class. Using this pivot back to in-person learning experiences offers a valuable opportunity to rethink some of our approaches to teaching and take advantage of what we’ve learned during this challenging time. In this session, participants will meet a range of faculty members who will share practical strategies (e.g., note taking, classroom agreements, etc.) to enhance the face-to-face teaching experience.

Why bother reading: Strategies for getting students to read course material

Schedule: Thursday, January 19, 2023, 01:00 PM – 03:00 PM
Location: CTL 1232/1233 (700 California)
Having trouble getting students to read course material? Or heard the dead silence following the question “what was the reading about”? Do students tell you they don’t need to read the materials in your course? Are they right? In this workshop we will dive into useful (and less than useful) strategies for getting students to read course material and how to troubleshoot when students don’t do their readings. Participants will be invited to think and discuss how they can adapt these strategies to their own disciplinary context.
