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.

A Teaching Circle is a small book club that meets 3-4 times. When you sign up for this event, you are signing up for all THREE meetings listed above. CTEL will lend you the book and send it to your office about a week before the circle starts.

Facilitator: Melanie Burdick, Professor of English
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.

Facilitator: Tonya Ricklefs, Associate Professor of Social Work
Description: Education has continued to have ongoing conversations over the last several years about the importance of creating environments for people to have the important conversations about race, equity, intersectionality, power, privilege, etc. The skills that are needed to navigate these facilitated dialogues are not skills that all social workers have or are comfortable with. Many conflict resolution/facilitator skills not not taught for educators. This session will explore different comfort levels with conflict, provide some self-reflection on our ability to connect individuals through shared meaning (verbally and non-verbally). Higher education should be an environment that each individual can be challenged to listen and hear others in an environment in a positive and supportive environment. Participants will learn about their personal conflict styles; the fight, flight, or freeze reactions of individuals when faced with conflict; and some basic techniques on how to communicate with individuals in high conflict situations.

Facilitator: Colleague2Colleague
Description:

Learning Management Systems (LMS) offer discussion boards. Some even offer a way to upload documents, pictures, sound bites, and videos. However, they can still be chunky, impersonal, and archaic.

By using Google Slides, you can create online engagement whether you’re in-person, online, hybrid, or hyflex. The slide bank can be collaboratively created by all students, exist in a closed system to protect privacy, and provide a convenient way to make interesting slides/pages that contain visual clues.

In this session, I will show you how to build a slide bank for co-creative slide making by the students. Then I will show how to transition slides to the blogging platform. If time allows, I will show the purpose of hot buttons within this co-created blog slide bank.

Location: Online

Facilitator: Dr. Mindy Trenary is an Associate Professor of English and the chair of the Textbook Affordability Taskforce at Butler Community College
Description: OER materials, or Open Educational Resources, allow students and faculty members to think beyond the textbook in ways fostering creativity and innovation. Since many faculty members and support staff are roughly familiar with OER, this presentation will focus on the process of finding appropriate OER and tailoring them to your audience. To do this, we will consider the “good” (reducing costs, removing barriers, and increasing creativity), the “bad” (student learning curves, preconceptions about online courses, and technology concerns), and the “ugly” (broken links, missing pages, and lots of clicking) of using OER in the classroom by looking at two fully OER courses.

Although this presentation will primarily focus on faculty engagement with OER, I will address some ways that support staff can help faculty along their journey. If time allows, we will also discuss concerns regarding the implementation of OER materials in your courses and some resources.

Facilitator: Carson Kay, Assistant Professor of Communication Studies
Description: Presentation skills are pivotal in civic, professional, and personal life. Presenting research and project updates, specifically, is a skill often needed in the workplace but a skill that students generally do not develop before college. Instructors of all disciplines can help students improve facets of their oral presentation skills by focusing on what Rodomanchenko (2014) calls micro skills, abilities needed to prepare and present a speech. In this session, participants will (1) explore these micro skills and consider which ones might align best with their course objectives and (2) discuss activity ideas to help students develop these skills. 

Mentoring Successful, Formative Undergraduate Research and Student Projects

Pillar: Pedagogy
Event Type: Workshop
Date/Time: Thursday, February 23, 2:00-2:50
Location: Memorial Union, Vogel room
Registration:

Register Here

Facilitator: Vince Rossi, Assistant Professor of Physics
Description: Many programs require students to complete an undergraduate research or capstone project for graduation. Programs that don't have such a requirement, may still have a place for student research or projects in their crediting system. Undergraduate research and capstone projects are a critical and formative experience for undergraduates, where they generally gain specialized experience and training. When managed well, these projects can lead to opportunities beyond graduation, whether it be admittance to a graduate program or employment. While student projects are generally associated with credits towards graduation, they may or may not be associated with a specific course or curriculum. In either case, student research and projects are always overseen by a faculty mentor. Faculty mentors are tasked with creating positive, successful and formative experiences for students working on undergraduate research and capstone projects. During this workshop, faculty will first reflect on student projects that they are individually qualified to mentor, including those that may lie outside of, yet adjacent to their own specializations. Faculty will then cover effective management strategies to help students complete a successful project. Finally, faculty will learn of additional resources--both internally and external to WU--in order to help support student research and projects.

Facilitator: Carson Kay, Assistant Professor of Communication Studies
Description:

Two years after the COVID-19 pandemic began, Hu et al. (2022) noted that college students in the United States continue to feel more fear and stress and less happiness than they experienced before the pandemic. As stress and fear are known to deleteriously impact learning (Milner et al., 2017), and chronic stress adversely affects focus (Liu et al., 2020), educators are facing serious implications regarding student engagement. In this lunch session, participants will (1) explore structural approaches for inspiring attention and (2) apply these approaches to participants' own experiences. The goal of this session is for participants to leave with one approach that they can easily implement into their future courses.

Facilitator: Valerie Mendoza, Coordinator of Inclusive Teaching and Learning and Director of the Title III Strengthening Institutions Grant
Huaong Nguyen, Assistant Professor of Chemistry
Description:

Most faculty were trained to focus on content and not students. The learning you will do here will help you flip that paradigm and think more carefully about the diverse gifts your students bring to the classroom and how you can build upon that diversity to help them be more engaged and successful. This is not a course for faculty who already have training or experience in inclusive teaching or student-centered pedagogy. Rather, this is for faculty who are just getting started with these ideas.

Teaching Matters is a group of faculty and staff who learn about teaching together. Teaching Matters are intensive, multi-session 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. When you sign up for this event, you are signing up for all FOUR meetings listed above.

Facilitator: Carson Kay, Assistant Professor of Communication Studies
Description:

Students and instructors do not learn inside of a vacuum. Yet, the college classroom often prioritizes objective information-sharing over the realistic acknowledgment of emotion's impact. Grounded in neuroscience, psychology, and education scholarship, The Spark of Learning argues that the best way to motivate students, improve retention, and maintain engagement is by actively recognizing how course design and delivery are connected to emotion. Author Sarah Rose Cavanagh provides practical ideas for multiple disciplines to illustrate how emotion can become a pedagogical resource.

A Teaching Circle is a small book club that meets 3-4 times. When you sign up for this event, you are signing up for all THREE meetings listed above. CTEL will lend you the book and send it to your office about a week before the circle starts.
