2019-2020 Teaching Workshops
In this interactive session, participants will learn about various inclusive teaching strategies and discuss with colleagues how they can implement these strategies in their own contexts.
Research shows that when students worry about fulfilling a negative stereotype related to certain social identities, it can hurt their learning (a phenomenon known as stereotype threat). In this interactive session, participants will learn about strategies for mitigating stereotype threat in their classes.
Encouraging Growth Mindset to Support Student Learning^
Research shows that an instructor’s beliefs about their own and their students’ intelligence and ability impact the classroom environment. In this 45-min session, participants will learn strategies to encourage a growth mindset for students in their classes.
Identity Matters: Understanding the Impact of Social Identities in the Engineering Classroom
In this interactive session, participants will reflect on how their own and their students’ social identities impact the learning environment in engineering courses.
Classroom assessment techniques (CATs) are quick and useful ways to gather information on what, how much, and how well students learn. Instructors can use the data to create more effective learning environments. Participants in this session will identify ways to use CATs in their own class.
‘Flipping’ the Engineering Classroom^
This session will focus on how engineering faculty can engage students during class by moving traditional lecture prior to class. Participants will experience a “flipped classroom” by watching short videos prior to the session and engage in conversations and activities relevant for designing a class session.
