Holding Students Accountable for Pre-class Work

Tuesday, January 23, 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM, CITL Workshop Room (Wells Library East Tower E243)

In this workshop, participants will modify one of their existing assignments to include pre-class and in-class accountability. Participants will learn how to use dynamic and automated Canvas tools to support accountability activities and to assess comprehension and progress before class. When students prepare before class, lecture segments will be more relevant, class time can be used for work when the expert help of the instructor is available, and students can productively engage in project work, collaborative work, application of concepts, and other meaningful in-class work.

Associate Instructor Identity: Performance and Perception

Wednesday, January 24, 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM, IU Archives (Wells Library East Tower E460)

Are you interested in learning strategies for teaching with diversity? Do you identify as a member of a marginalized group? This workshop is the opening event for the Intersections of Identity and Instruction Graduate Student Learning Community (I3 GSLC), a partnership of the Center for Innovative Teaching and Learning and The University Graduate School. We seek to promote the engagement and professional development of diverse graduate students as associate instructors. This community provides a welcoming space for understanding the connections between our diverse identities and education.

For Graduate Students: Writing a Course Proposal

Friday, January 26, 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM, CITL Workshop Room (Wells Library East Tower E243)

This workshop is divided into three elements. First, participants will look through samples of syllabi that have been taught by graduate students at Indiana University. Second, we will share principles of backward course design. Lastly, for this workshop, graduate students and postdocs should bring an idea for a course at any stage in development: from a broad concept to a sample syllabus, or anything in between. We will end our workshop by meeting in small groups to provide one another with feedback and suggestions for improvement. Participants will leave this workshop with knowledge about forming a course proposal as well as a plan for polishing their existing course materials.

“But They Don’t Do the Reading!” Helping Students Read Productively for your Course

Tuesday, January 30, 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM, CITL Workshop Room (Wells Library East Tower E243)

In this free-standing workshop, we will continue the discussion about accountability with an emphasis on helping students prepare readings in ways that will help them succeed in class. Participants will explore the wide variety of expectations for reading that students face as they move through their curriculum, including different genres, varying levels of engagement (e.g., skimming vs. reading closely), and different purposes. The workshop will also consider how instructors might make their unique expectations for reading transparent to students so that they are appropriately equipped for class.

The Experiences of Undergraduate Women in STEM: CIRTLCast

Thursday, February 1, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM, Online

In the first of four events on women in STEM, we will define and characterize the participation of women in STEM. We will assess the challenges they face at the undergraduate level. Lastly, we will discuss strategies for creating inclusive environments. Questions to consider include: What is the landscape: what are current proportions of women in a range of fields? Which fields are doing the best? What fields are lagging? What are some common challenge during undergraduate education? What actions can be taken by institutions, departments, colleagues, and students to create inclusive environments?

Intensive Writing Roundtable and Breakfast

Friday, February 2, 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM, CITL Workshop Room (Wells Library East Tower E243)

Are you teaching an Intensive Writing course for the first time? Are you interested in teaching an IW course but not sure about what is involved? Are you an experienced IW instructor looking for new ideas? Do you worry about how to handle the paper load, how to best support international students, or how to integrate the writing process into your course? Please join experienced instructors from across the COAS disciplines and Campus Writing Program staff for an informal roundtable discussion and breakfast as we address these and other questions related to teaching an IW course. Participants will leave the roundtable with proven IW strategies as well as knowledge of support services available for instructors.

SOTL-Disciplinary-Based Approaches to Online Teaching and Learning

Friday, February 2, 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM, CITL Workshop Room (Wells Library East Tower E243)

Instructors tend to organize their online courses around specific content rather than around the mental moves they want students to make. As a result, their teaching efforts may focus on looking for more engaging or effective content or choosing new technological tools in the hopes of promoting student learning. We propose to integrate disciplinary-based approaches into the process of online teaching development to increase faculty motivation and agency. We will be researching the extent this influences the online learning results and the experience for students. Session participants will be able to try out parts of the bottleneck process and be invited to join in ongoing efforts to further this work.

For Graduate Students: Preparing for the Teaching Related Academic Interview

Friday, February 2, 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM, CITL Workshop Room (Wells Library East Tower E243)

Being able to talk about teaching experiences and philosophies is necessary for the academic job market. Workshop participants will listen to a brief explanation of common interview questions and job committee expectations. After, participants will partake in an informal “speed-dating” style interview process. This event is perfect for graduate students and postdocs in the academic job process or applying to campus positions.

SOTL Event - Flipped Learning: Roots, Research, and Future Directions

Friday, February 16, 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM, IMU - Georgian Room

Flipped learning (or "the flipped classroom") burst onto the national and international stage in the early part of the current decade, garnering huge popularity through books, workshops, and media articles. Its fast rise to prominence led to a common misconception that flipped learning is merely an educational fad, with no roots and no future, just like many other fads before it. In this talk we will debunk this myth by examining flipped learning research from three viewpoints.
