The division of Faculty Affairs within the Office of Academic Affairs invites faculty to participate in a workshop series developed by School of Education Professors Jeff Mangram and Melissa Luke. These workshops are part of the university commitment to professional development opportunities related to diversity, belonging, inclusion and equity offered throughout the academic year.
This professional development opportunity focuses on High Leverage Teaching Practices (HLTP) as a set of instructional strategies that provide clarity and expectations for the teacher and support learning and accountability in the students (McLeskey & Brownell, 2015). Across the three interactive workshops, presenters will identify 22 HLTP within four domains, Collaboration, Assessment, Social/Emotional/Behavioral and Instruction. Case studies will be used to encourage attendees’ application of the HLTPs within a real world classroom situations.
The three-part High Leverage Teaching Practices (HLTP) workshop series is designed so that Parts 1, 2 and 3 are inter-related, but each stand alone. Therefore, faculty can attend the HLTP starting with any of the three sessions and proceed with the remaining workshops. These workshops are part of the university commitment to professional development opportunities related to diversity, belonging, inclusion and equity offered throughout the academic year.
“I walked away with actual techniques, skills, tools that I had practiced and at least attempted to perfect. The use of real-world, real-time, personal examples gave the workshop not only a freshness but also a sense that the material was current and urgent and that if I intended to be an effective teacher and create a sense of belonging in all of my students, I needed to begin this work immediately. That message continues to resonate with me.”

“I found the content to be practical and impactful across content areas and contexts. I have been teaching for nearly 20 years and believe that the presenters provided many useful teaching practices while simultaneously framing their use within the realities and complexities of the post-secondary landscape.”
