Methods for Encouraging Self-directed Learning: Assignment Wrappers

Facilitated by: Bridget Arend
Wednesday, October 8, 12:00-1:00 pm
OTL Conference Room (AAC Rm 345)

"Wrappers" are short handouts or surveys that students complete along with an assignment or exam. The wrapper focuses on the learning process rather than on the content itself. In this session we will look at a number of assignment wrapper examples and discuss methods for using them effectively. If you've already used wrappers in your course, please contact bridget.arend@du.edu before the session.

How Research on Learning Can Inform Our Teaching

Facilitated by: Virginia Pitts
Wednesday, October 15, 12:00-1:00 pm
OTL Conference Room (AAC Rm 345)

In this interactive workshop, we'll discuss some key research-based perspectives on how people learn that can be used as "tools to think with" when it comes to designing and facilitating learning experiences for our students. An initial 20-minute presentation on these research-based perspectives will be followed by an opportunity for faculty to discuss how these perspectives might apply to their own work with students.

This workshop/roundtable event explores the tools available in the Canvas system for building program assessment into the evaluation of course assignments. Learn how outcomes can be designated and then aggregated at the program level as part of your assessment plan. An initial overview will be followed by a Q&A discussion that can focus on the needs of individual programs. This initial conversation will help the Office of Teaching and Learning identify current and future needs for assistance in this area.

Engaging Faculty in Inclusive Excellence

Facilitated by: Chayla Haynes, Assistant Professor, University of Northern Colorado
Tuesday, October 28, 2:00-3:30 pm
The Loft, Anderson Academic Commons

This interactive workshop aims to both expose faculty to teaching practices that promote inequitable educational outcomes among college students based on race and equip faculty with the skills to implement behaviors (i.e., specific course design formats and pedagogical choices) in their classrooms that link inclusion to teacher excellence. Participants are encouraged to come to the workshop ready to engage in the type of discussion and group activity that fosters deep learning, reflexivity, and the co-construction of knowledge.
