Death to PowerPoint: Lesson Planning for the 21st Century

August 2019 - Annual Teaching Symposium

October 2019 - Faculty Workshop Series

Abstract

This workshop presents a "post-modern" lesson planning approach that is an alternative to the linear presentation of content in a prepared slideshow (or individual lessons in a semester-long plan).

-- Identify your pedagogical commitments

-- Explore methods of non-linear course material presentation

-- Understand the learning benefits of non-linear and unpolished approaches

Death to PowerPoint II

March 2020 - Faculty Workshop Series

 

Abstract
This workshop is an opportunity for faculty members to engage in a creativity-and-feedback session focused on revamping 2-3 of your own lessons into a post-modern curriculum. Please come prepared with a topic or lesson sequence you’d like to develop during the workshop – we especially recommend lessons or topics that students tend to struggle with. Whether you attended the Fall workshop or not you’ll gain insights into how lessons and assignments can be crafted into a transparent, interleaved, and integrated curriculum that uses student work to enhance learning experiences.

Making the Most of Challenging Conversations

August 2019 - Annual Teaching Symposium

Abstract

Students can surprise instructors by introducing discussion or comments that aren’t appropriate for our university culture, and that we’ll need to respond to promptly and expertly.  In this workshop, we’ll explore how to establish standards of inclusivity in the classroom as well as how to deliberately initiate and effectively facilitate conversations that are difficult because of political or cultural pressures, thereby providing our students with opportunities to develop the skill of polite disagreement in conversation.
