How do we create the conditions for effective, engaging, supportive learning?

Is teaching an exercise in covering content, or in helping students attain learning outcomes? How do you know when you've "done enough?"

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?
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!

Student interactions in a classroom, lab, or other learning environments are shaped in important and subtle ways by who students are and by how they interpret their lived experiences. This workshop, open to faculty of all disciplines, examines important principles of equity and inclusion, summarizing the research on historically excluded students' perceptions of the academic environments. 

Participants will engage in collaborative activities to develop a greater understanding of the underlying causes of student disengagement and design practices that encourage greater student involvement. Participants will observe recorded classroom interactions and discuss different measures of equity, building on participants’ intuitive sense of fairness. The result will be a greater understanding for participants of why inequity and exclusion occur, what they can do to increase equity and inclusion, and how they can assess their own impact in the classroom to chart future improvement. The workshop will also discuss lessons learned from RIT’s Inclusive Excellence initiative, a 5-year project funded by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute to foster an inclusive culture in the natural sciences.

Your research has been conducted and the paper is complete, now the question becomes, where will you publish? Amid the changing nature of the academic publishing world, along with the sheer number of publishers out there, this can be a daunting step. This panel discussion will cover topics such as assessing publishers to make sure they will meet your needs, rejecting publishers that won’t, avoiding predatory publishers, and ultimately choosing the right vehicle to disseminate your research. This event is ideal for faculty, graduate students, and anyone else interested in academic publishing.

Panel discussion: 2:00 - 3:30pm
Public reception: 3:30 - 4:30pm

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.

Attendees who use laptops are encouraged to bring them to the session, so that they can install the free Mendeley software.
