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. Significant time will be devoted to comparing and contrasting actual syllabi in small groups.

Some of the questions addressed in the workshop include:

  • 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 by more "learner-centered"? That is, how can it better inform, guide, and motivate students, especially when they’re not in class?
  • What resources and services are available for planning, writing, and formatting my syllabus?
This workshop is open to all RIT faculty and teaching staff (full-time and part-time, visiting, lecturer, academic support specialist, tenured, tenure-track, adjunct, etc.).

To request interpreting services, go to: http://myAccess.rit.edu/

The deadline to register for this event is Tuesday, August 20, 2019 at 11:00am.

Cecil Foster, PhD, who has published widely and can speak to how important it is to form mentoring circles will be visiting RIT on September 18, 2019. Dr. Foster is Chair and Professor of Department of Transnational Studies in the College of Arts and Sciences at University at Buffalo. Click this link to view his profile

This presentation will be in two parts and registration is required for each:

Part 1: Open discussion with all faculty offering tips on some of the ways to make their book proposals to editors more attractive and more likely to ensure greater success in academic and general publishing. (10:45 am-12:15 pm with a light lunch following 12:15-1 pm).

Part 2: This second part will be in the form of individual mentoring, so that individual faculty members can discuss their plans and get immediate feedback. (2 pm-3 pm seating for the individual mentoring is very limited). Click here to register for Part 2. SEATING IS VERY LIMITED! 

Combined, the two sections aim for personal outcomes for the individual faculty in ways that will embolden them to a) carefully develop book proposals; b) be mindful of some of the traps faculty can encounter; and c) to encourage faculty to become actively engaged in seeking publication for their work.

Cecil Foster: Journalist. Novelist. Academic.

Cecil Foster is often described as a renaissance man because of his many intellectual interests. He is an author, an academic and a public intellectual. But should you ask him to describe himself he would probably explain that he is a writer who uses many genres to tell stories about the human condition and the struggles by individuals for a better world.

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.

Using Mendeley -- this session will provide a demonstration of and basic instruction for using Mendeley, an online citation management system. Mendeley allows users to create formatted bibliographies in many citation styles, and output those bibliographies to word processing programs such as Microsoft Word. Mendeley also allows users to access a social-media-like network of fellow scholars in their disciplines, as well as share references and bibliographies with colleagues. All faculty, staff and students are welcome to attend this workshop.

Attendees may want to familiarize themselves with the product slightly before this demonstration. Mendeley is available as a free download for use with web browsers or as a standalone program. Attendees may also find this online guide to be helpful.
