Events

Teaching Action Groups

Teaching Action Groups (TAGs) are a series of three or more sessions focused upon a particular issue or strategy in teaching and learning. These advanced inquiry groups are highly participatory and limited in size. Participants should have some introductory knowledge of the topic, be willing to look critically at the topic, and apply what they have learned into their own teaching contexts.

Teaching Circles

Teaching Circles are book clubs where CTEL provides the books. Participants will meet 3-4 times during a one-month period to discuss insights or challenges that emerge from the work. This is a great, low-key opportunity to meet new colleagues and share ideas.

Teaching Matters

Teaching Matters is a group of faculty and staff who learn about teaching together. Teaching Matters are intensive semester-long experiences in which instructors are led through a structured process that allows them to learn about specific teaching strategies and create concrete innovations in their teaching practice.

Webinars

Webinars cover a variety of topics. If you would like to watch pedagogical webinars on your own, you will be awarded a badge for every 60 minutes you watch. Send an email to ctel@washburn.edu with the title of the webinars and the date you watched them to receive your badge.

Workshops

Workshops are 1-2 hour face-to-face presentations/discussions/activities that are designed to help faculty and staff learn more about teaching and learning. Our workshops are often collaborative endeavors with different faculty and staff facilitating.

Course Design

Course design programs are usually multi-day opportunities where we work on course design principles and help guide course preparation for both in person and online courses (individual program descriptions will specify which course type it is targeting).

Speakers

Each year CTEL helps design, coordinate, and/or sponsor events that address university-wide issues, and are targeted at generating open dialogue among faculty and staff around the issues of teaching and learning. Speakers will reflect on one of the central pillars that define CTEL (High Impact Practices, Diversity, Technology, Assessment, Pedagogy, Co-curricular Learning).

Description: A secure and trusting relationship between teacher and students is at the heart of positive discipline and a safe, productive classroom. The positive effects of building teacher-student relationships impact all aspects of classroom life. Students come to class and like to be there, they are more engaged in learning, they retain more of what they learn, and their creativity is unleashed. There are fewer behavior issues, lower dropout rates, and more harmony between class members. With humor, practical action steps for the teacher, and a few wacky stories, Jim Sturtevant shows all educators how to connect with students and operate a classroom in ways that show acceptance, breed mutual respect, handle and reduce conflict, build self-esteem, support students in trouble, and add peace and enjoyment.

Description: Higher education has seen better days. Harsh budget cuts, the precarious nature of employment in college teaching, and political hostility to the entire enterprise of education have made for an increasingly fraught landscape. Radical Hope is an ambitious response to this state of affairs, at once political and practical—the work of an activist, teacher, and public intellectual grappling with some of the most pressing topics at the intersection of higher education and social justice. Kevin Gannon asks that the contemporary university’s manifold problems be approached as opportunities for critical engagement, arguing that, when done effectively, teaching is by definition emancipatory and hopeful. Considering individual pedagogical practice, the students who are the primary audience and beneficiaries of teaching, and the institutions and systems within which teaching occurs, Radical Hope surveys the field, tackling everything from impostor syndrome to cell phones in class to allegations of a campus “free speech crisis.” Throughout, Gannon translates ideals into tangible strategies and practices (including key takeaways at the conclusion of each chapter), with the goal of reclaiming teachers’ essential role in the discourse of higher education.
