This is a group viewing of the Magna Webinar described as follows:

Naturally, adults and children learn in different ways. However, this truism does not necessarily translate when learners transition from secondary to postsecondary educational settings. It’s even more elusive in online learning environments as students are not immediately visible to their instructors. This seminar will first challenge you to “see” your students by understanding that the learning style and needs of historically traditional online students is different than what the current student population desires. Additionally, you will gain strategies to apply adult learner principles in online courses to enable high expectations and promote student success across diverse adult learners.

LEARNING GOALS

Upon completion of this seminar, you’ll be able to:

  • Identify the obstacles of higher-level learning
  • Analyze adult learning characteristics that inform equitable teaching strategies
  • Apply best practices in adult learning

HERE'S WHAT WE'LL COVER

  • Defining learning and the barriers of learning
  • Adult learner principles
  • Andragogic course analysis through an equity lens
  • Transparency in Learning and Teaching (TILT) strategies
  • Collective teacher efficacy (CTE)

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

This seminar will benefit:

  • Faculty
  • Instructional designers
  • Technologists
  • Program directors
  • Program or discipline chairs
  • Instructional deans

Teachers on Teaching: Effective Student Teamwork Workshop with Carol Marchetti

For years, instructors have heard that assigning group work is a good teaching strategy. Research shows that by working together in small groups, students can develop critical thinking skills, exchange knowledge, share expertise, increase motivation, and improve their attitudes toward learning. Yet, when asked, many students describe negative experiences with group work and may even declare that they prefer individual work.

In this session, we’ll discuss ways to implement student teams in a variety of environments and for a variety of tasks. We’ll address approaches to creating student teams, instructional supports, tools for communication, and the instructor’s role in managing teamwork.

Dr. Marchetti is a professor in the School of Mathematical Sciences, College of Science; an associate faculty member in the Research Center for Teaching and Learning, National Technical Institute for the Deaf; and a recipient of RIT's Provost Award for Excellence in Teaching.

In this workshop, faculty participants will bring a challenge or a “pain point” from their own teaching. We will discuss ways to implement small, impactful pedagogical changes to improve the inclusion of all students. These simple changes often improve interaction between all enrolled students, enhance the classroom experience, and make teaching more efficient and effective.

Participants are welcome to bring their own lunch to this brownbag session.

Nicole Watson is the Assistant Softball Coach at RIT and a former NCAA athlete who is in recovery from an eating disorder. After struggling with an eating disorder for five years and going through treatment, she learned that her underlying anxiety was part of the issue. She then learned how to manage both mental illnesses. As the founder of Hope for Athletes and a Body Project facilitator, Watson shares her story to educate others about eating disorders, provide guidance and hope to those going through treatment, and help lift the stigma of mental illness.

Matt Altobelli is a fourth year psychology student at RIT who struggled with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) following eight years of military service. He is the author of the memoir, The American Nightmare and the Art of Failure: Life with PTSD (published by iUniverse, 2018). Altobelli plans to pursue a Ph.D. in Clinical or Cognitive Psychology with the goal of helping trauma victims recover and find a life worth living.

Jessica Hanna is the owner of several autoimmune diseases, all of which went undiagnosed for many years. At 23, it was Celiac disease; during a pregnancy at 28, it was pruritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy (PUPPPS). She graduated to lupus, and eventually Type 1 diabetes at the age of 34. Hanna is a mom, wife, photographer, and aspiring web designer with two golden retrievers, a fat cat, and four chickens. She lives in Macedon with her husband of 7 years, Tom, and their kids, Oliver (6) and Mariah (4).

This is a group viewing of the Magna Webinar described as follows:

Creating accommodating, all-inclusive environments for all students should be a top priority for any educator. Fortunately, faculty can implement small, straightforward pedagogical changes to increase the inclusion of students with disabilities that often improve interaction between all enrolled students, improve the classroom experience, and make teaching more efficient and effective. These changes are in addition to what is more typical: honoring accommodations requests such as letters from a disability services office detailing the needed accommodations (e.g., presence of ASL/English interpreter in the classroom, extended time on a test, large-print handouts, digital version of slides) and then keeping the course as planned with minimal additional adaptation from the faculty member or class participants.

This Magna Online Seminar will present additional, easy to implement strategies that improve inclusion and interaction of students with and without disabilities, as well as provide a framework for faculty to further develop their own strategies.

LEARNING GOALS

Upon completion of this seminar, you’ll be able to:

  • Differentiate how access and accommodation services are not sufficient for inclusion, or for interaction between students
  • Distinguish exemplar challenges, in a range of typical college classrooms and settings
  • Review pedagogical strategies to reduce challenges and increase interaction and inclusion for all students
  • Devise assessment options to gauge effectiveness of said strategies
  • Employ takeaways and apply this framework to your own courses

HERE'S WHAT WE'LL COVER

  • Access vs. inclusion of teaching spaces
  • Pedagogical challenges of co-enrollment of students with and without disabilities and why accommodation letters from disability services offices are not enough
  • Actionable, example strategies that lessen the challenges you face in the classroom
  • Considerations for fulfilling assessment
  • How to apply the provided strategies to your own course

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

This seminar will benefit:

  • Faculty and instructors of all ranks and disciplines, including graduate students with teaching responsibilities
  • Faculty developers
  • Teaching and Learning Center professionals

The deadline to register for this event is Thursday, November 7, 2019 at 1:00pm.

This is a group viewing of the Magna Webinar described as follows:

You have the basics of teaching well in hand. Your students are successful. You feel comfortable with your content knowledge and teaching methods. So why would you change anything? This Magna Online Seminar invites you to peek behind the classroom doors and LMS screens of college and university instructors who win national teaching awards to find out what they do that is so different. We will take up three challenges, designed especially for already-excellent instructors:

  • Moving away from instructor-constructed interactions
  • Providing authentic experiences for learners
  • Shifting assessment to the learning process rather than what students produce at the end

All of these strategies share a grounding in the neuroscience of learning, greater learner engagement, and reduced instructor workload and will help you take your teaching to the next level.

LEARNING GOALS

Upon completion of this seminar, you’ll be able to:

  • Collaborate with learners to create learning processes together
  • Share authentic learning experiences that model real-world conditions for practitioners in the field represented by your courses
  • Assess learning through means beyond testing and project-writing

HERE'S WHAT WE'LL COVER

  • Threaded-pathway teaching practices
  • Collaborative learning design
  • Constructivist learning theory
  • Authentic learning design
  • Learning neuroscience

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

This is a group viewing of the Magna Webinar described as follows:

Learning goals and objectives are where the real work of teaching is accomplished. Meaningful and measurable learning goals are tied to student success. When course goals aren't linked to the desired outcomes, then student success is greatly compromised. Learn how to target your teaching and make an impact on student learning by designing specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and timely goals before you assign that reading, assignment, project, or test. Discover what makes a SMART teaching goal and how to revise any goals that don't make the grade. Finally, this seminar will demonstrate how to purposely cater appropriate materials, activities, assignments, and assessments to best promote the achievement of your set goals.

LEARNING GOALS

Upon completion of this seminar, you’ll be able to:

  • Identify the "levels of learning" your course requires
  • Classify and refine the course outcomes/goals/objectives in your own program, course, or unit

In this interactive workshop, you will engage in a practice to better support our growing and diverse student population. Faculty will reflect on how their personal and social identities have shaped their learning. Faculty will also enhance their understanding of how micro-messaging can negatively impact their students. Finally, attendees will leave with a couple of tools to address difficult learning moments in the classroom.

This program is a repeat of the session held in Fall 2019.

Co-Sponsored by the Division of Diversity and Inclusion, Office of Faculty Affairs, and the ILI.
