Transparent design invites ALL students to learn

Part 1: Transparent assignment design. Research demonstrates that when college teachers incorporate transparent design into two course assignments, students report a significantly increased sense of belonging. This three-part workshop begins with a focus on the research, followed by participants applying transparent design to a specific assignment they are drafting for a fall course. Part 2: Broaden the impact of transparent design. In the second hour, we apply transparent design to other aspects of college courses that can cause confusion. Participants will choose a topic such as participation, office hours, course calendar, pandemic-related expectations, support for learning, group work, communication with faculty. They will join a virtual break-out group on their topic of choice and outline (1) the aspects that are hidden from (some) students and (2) outline 2-3 ideas for making it transparent. Part 3: On your own time, revise or create teaching material using the transparency model. The first 20 people who register for this option and complete the requirements listed below will receive a $250 stipend. • Commit to participating in Parts 1 and 2 of this workshop, • On your own time, revise or create teaching material using the transparency model, • Submit one revised or newly created document to the CTLE by August 27, 2021. This event is part of a week of virtual re-entry sessions where we look at ways to promote deep learning for all students. Each session features small, researched steps faculty can take and provides brief periods of time for hands-on course planning. Sessions held on Zoom to accommodate travel schedules.

Connecting for learning through relationship-rich classes

“Relationships are the beating heart of the undergraduate experience” (Felten & Lambert, 2020). “Decades of research demonstrate the transformative potential and the lasting legacies of a relationship-rich college experience” (Felten & Lambert, 2020). [introduction, p. 1] In this workshop, participants will apply research findings on the power of relationship-rich higher education to their own fall 2021 re-entry teaching context. Each participant will examine one of their own syllabi to identify places where they might increase the role of relationships in learning (e.g., faculty and students, students and students, and students and people outside the course). They will plan to implement a few small changes. This event is part of a week of virtual re-entry sessions where we look at ways to promote deep learning for all students. Each session features small, researched steps faculty can take and provides brief periods of time for hands-on course planning. Sessions held on Zoom to accommodate travel schedules.

Rethinking the Disability Paradigm: The University Community Working Together

What do you need to know about disabled students and co-workers? This workshop will answer this question and many more that you didn’t know to ask! What does able-bodied privilege mean? How does it manifest in the workplace? Our socially mediated and culturally affirmed beliefs influence how we think and engage with each other. These largely unconscious beliefs can lead to biases and micro-aggressions that impact others in ways that we may not be aware of or intend. We want you to gain an awareness of your own beliefs and how they influence your actions and the language you use. This is a collective responsibility we all share.
