Workshop on Flipping the Classroom

Classes and Workshops

"Flipping the Classroom: Strategies for Ensuring Students Complete Out-of-Class Assignments." Arguably, the most talked about teaching strategies in higher education today are “flipping the classroom” approaches. Flipping typically refers to approaches that require students to significantly engage with instructional content before coming to class. Class time is then spent engaging in activities other than traditional lecturing. One of the greatest challenges of this model is figuring out how instructors can motivate students to engage with the out-of-class assignments so that they are prepared to engage in active learning when actually in class. This workshop will provide concrete strategies for meeting this challenge and will include hands-on activities regarding crafting excellent questions for short, pre-class quizzes and maximizing the benefits of briefing writing assignments. Student motivation, entrance tickets and other related strategies also will be explored.

Award-Winning Faculty Series Workshop

Classes and Workshops

"Coloring Outside the Lines: Pushing Boundaries Through Diverse Teaching." Teaching in general is a very involved process, and when difficult subject matter sits at the core of any course, that process becomes doubly difficult. A teacher is often times faced with resistance, apathy and confrontation. While most students appear somewhat comfortable with learning about traditionally taboo issues, it can be unsettling to begin understanding the world from a worldview that is different. To that end, Tina Harris purposefully employs diverse teaching strategies that allow her to both engage and challenge students to think more critically about the world in which students and faculty live.

Workshop on Archives-based Learning

Classes and Workshops

"Why to Bring Students to the Archives (and How)." It is often assumed that any student exposure to primary sources is inherently good. The creators of TeachArchives.org beg to differ. Over three years, they brought into the archives more than 1,100 early-career college students with majors ranging from pharmacy to architecture to history. After much experimentation, they developed an innovative approach which models document analysis by setting specific learning objectives, pre-selecting a small number of documents and tailoring prompts for small group work. When done right, archives-based learning can have a huge positive impact on student engagement, individual skill building, course learning objectives, campus goals like retention and civic participation at large. This talk will push participants to evaluate their own practices—in and out of the archives—in the interest of excellent pedagogical design.
