Using EndNote to create bibliographies -- this session will provide a demonstration of and basic instruction for using EndNote, an online citation management system provided by RIT Libraries. EndNote allows users to create formatted bibliographies in many citation styles, including APA and MLA, and output those bibliographies to word processing programs such as Microsoft Word. All faculty, staff and students are welcome to attend this workshop.

Attendees may want to familiarize themselves with the product slightly before this demonstration. Reviewing this InfoGuide would provide a great foundation allowing for greater understanding during this in-person session.

Attendees who use laptops are encouraged to bring them to the session, so that they can install EndNote plugins for web browsers and word processors.

FACULTY & STAFF ONLY EVENT

Join the University of Michigan's CRLT Players for Cuts: Responding to Student Concerns, a two-session series, that invites participants to think together about the many forces that can shape campus climate both positively and negatively.  Built around a series of vignettes that explore students' experiences of marginalization, each session offers a space where participants can practice engaging in difficult conversations about and across differences in identity while also reflecting on their personal responsibilities to cultivate inclusive and equitable spaces within and outside of the classroom.

Session 1: Mariam
"Mariam" is offered twice on Wednesday, February 28: 9-11 am (http://bit.ly/Michigan-Mariam-AM) AND the same session is repeated from 1:25-3:25 pm (http://bit.ly/Michigan-Mariam-PM). This is an interactive workshop involving five actors where participants will: 

  • Analyze a series of bias incidents from the perspective of a targeted student.
  • Reflect on their own experiences of marginalizing behavior--as target, aggressor, or bystander.
  • Explore strategies for intervening effectively when they observe marginalizing behavior and for responding productively when concern about their own behavior is raised.
Session 2: Carter
"Carter" is offered twice on March 1 from 9:30-11:30 (http://bit.ly/Michigan-Carter-AM)  AND the same session is repeated from 1:20-3:20 pm (http://bit.ly/Michigan-Carter-PM). This interactive workshop involves two actors where participants will: 
  • Consider the impacts of an 'isolated' bias incident on a targeted student.
  • Reflect on the ways they listen to others' stories about negative experiences of climate at RIT
  • Develop strategies for responding to concerns shared with them in ways that might mitigate rather than exacerbate existing climate concerns

In the first half of this workshop we'll watch a Magna 20-Minute Mentor video by Maryellen Weimer, the author of Learner-Center Teaching and editor of the Faculty Focus journal.

Professor Weimer will explain how we can transform exams into enhanced opportunities for student learning with practical solutions to the three core problems with exams today. Making exams better suit our learning goals requires student participation at every step of the process; she will share real-world, tested guidelines for integrating student input.. 

In the second half we'll share reactions to Weimer's presentation and explore strategies and techniques for making our exams less about grades and more about learning.

Teaching and Learning Services has paid for the campus license to the entire Magna 20-Minute Mentor video series. If you would like to see what other videos are available in that collection, visit our Magna Mentor web page.

David Simkins

Join David Simkins, assistant professor in Interactive Games and Media, for a discussion about the effective uses of role play in classrooms. Commonly used in pre-service and ongoing training in fields as diverse as social work, medicine, emergency response, and military preparation, its applications are much broader. 

Role play is a form of experiential learning that engages contextualized critical thinking in practice. Good role play creates learning opportunities, enhances uptake, encourages ongoing engagement, creates opportunities to put critical reasoning into practice, and improves comprehension of complex topics. It is particularly useful when teaching how to participate within complex systems. 

If you have used role play in classrooms, have thought about using it, or simply want to learn more about an innovative technique, join us for this guided conversation and learn techniques and best practices for applying role play across disciplines and practices.

Michael Starenko

Instructional designer Michael Starenko will lead this active learning-style workshop to discuss the multiple purposes and elements of a course syllabus and explore how to (re)design a syllabus that facilitates both effective teaching and student learning. Some of the questions addressed in the workshop include:

  • What RIT policies are required or expected to be in every syllabus?
  • What course-specific policies ought to be included in my syllabus and how should I frame them?
  • What message is my syllabus sending to students?
  • How can my syllabus inform, guide, and motivate students when they’re not in class?
  • What resources and services are available for planning, writing, and formatting my syllabus?
DINNER WILL BE PROVIDED. 
 
FEEDBACK FROM THE FALL 2017 WORKSHOP: 
  • I'm always working to make my syllabus better. This gave me some idea of how to do that for the next semester's classes.
  • I had gone into the workshop having a syllabus nearly completed for the course I am teaching in the spring. After attending, I can say that I will definitely be adjusting it significantly.  Appreciated learning what to include, what does not need to be included or what could simply have a link, etc, length expectations, and general info ALL GREAT.  What I didn't expect was to learn about all of the more subtle nuances that can really change how a student might respond to this document.  That was great "icing on the cake."
  • It was helpful to hear other faculty have similar issues across the disciplines with their syllabus design. The small group activity was great. 
  • Love the social events and networking opportunities. It is great to meet other faculty and share ideas.
  • Please, more like this!

AdvanceRIT, Council for the Representation & Engagement of Women Faculty (CREW), and Faculty Career Development facilitate the formation of peer support groups for faculty submitting their packages for promotion to full Professor and Senior or Principal Lecturer. These teams are referred to as Promotion Package Prep or “P3” (P cubed) groups.  Those considering or planning to submit for promotion to full Professor are encouraged to attend this panel session with senior leaders.

The P3 Group started in 2016 and the first group consisted of women faculty from five different colleges (COS, KGCOE, CAST, GCCIS, and NTID).  Out of this group, six submitted their proposal packages and all were promoted to full Professor.  Based on the positive feedback from participants the first year, the team broadened the efforts and now coordinate the formation of P3 Groups for ALL interested tenured faculty seeking promotion to full Professor and for Lecturers seeking promotion to Senior or Principal Lecturer. 

We expect to announce formation of 2018 P3 Groups later in February 2018.  Visit the Promotion Package Prep P3 website for more details on this program.

This is an informal event encouraging conversations about movies and pop culture and how they relate to information and media literacy.
