How is your team doing?

There are no bad styles! Through lecture and discussion, you will have a chance to experience differences in how people gather information, make decisions, and structure their lives. This knowledge often helps teams find more ways to “play to their styles.”

We all want learners to be deeply engaged, to take risks and be resilient in the face of failure. To increase learner engagement we need to tap into their intrinsic motivation. Gameful pedagogy, and gameful course design in particular, is a framework for giving learners agency and supporting their intrinsic motivation inspired by game design principles. This session will explore the philosophy behind gameful pedagogy, the principles, derived from that philosophy, which can guide your course designs, and the teaching practices that can further support the intrinsic motivation of your learners. Participants will brainstorm ways they might use gameful pedagogy in their own course design, understand the difference between gameful learning and gamification, and develop a plan for giving students choices in how to demonstrate their learning.

Jan. 15, Tues., 11 a.m. - noon | iGen: Teaching the Smartphone Generation

Traditional-age college students are now iGen (born after 1995), the first generation to spend their adolescence with smartphones. iGen’ers spend more time online and less time with each other in person, are growing up more slowly as adolescents, and are more extrinsically and less intrinsically motivated. These differences necessitate new strategies for reaching them as learners, and an awareness of how generational differences affect non-traditional age online learners in both positive and negative ways.

With this new group of young people growing into adulthood, we all need to understand them: Friends and family need to look out for them; businesses must figure out how to recruit them and sell to them; colleges and universities must know how to educate, guide them, and identify how these strategies can apply to all types of learners.

As we learn to understand this new generation, perhaps we can all learn more about ourselves. Because where iGen goes, so goes our nation—and the world.

Mar. 6, Wed., 3 - 4 p.m. | Addressing Implicit Bias & Microaggressions to Create An Inclusive Classroom & Campus Community

Racism, sexism, ageism, homophobia and other forms of discrimination and prejudice toward marginalized and underrepresented groups are pervasive in our society, and sometimes manifest as implicit bias and microaggressions. Implicit bias is the unconscious, automatic and instantaneous association of stereotypes or attitudes towards particular groups of people, while microaggressions are the everyday indignities, insults, and offensive hidden messages inflicted upon people of color and other marginalized and minority groups. Implicit biases and microaggressions negatively impact academic and workplace performance and psychological well-being, and should be the subject of an open, honest dialogue in a higher education environment. This webinar examines implicit biases and microaggressions, and relates examples that have recently been covered in the news media. Participants will reflect on the implicit biases and microaggressions that they may have experienced themselves as well as expressed towards others. They will also leverage their increased awareness and understanding to respond effectively when interacting with students and others.

Mar. 26, Tues., 9 - 10 a.m. | High-Impact Practice: Collaborative Assignments & Projects

Collaborative learning combines two key goals: learning to work and solve problems in the company of others; and sharpening one’s own understanding by listening seriously to the insights of others, especially those with different backgrounds and life experiences. Approaches range from study groups within a course, to team-based assignments and writing, to cooperative projects and research. Educational research suggests high-impact practices increase rates of student retention and student engagement. Come explore and learn how TCC is engaged with this HIP.

Mar. 27, Wed., 1 - 2 p.m. | High-Impact Practice: ePortfolios

ePortfolios are the latest addition to AAC&U’s list of high-impact educational practices, and higher education has developed a range of ways to implement them for teaching and learning, programmatic assessment, and career development. ePortfolios enable students to electronically collect their work over time, reflect upon their personal and academic growth, and then share selected items with others, such as professors, advisors, and potential employers. Because collection over time is a key element of the ePortfolio process, employing ePortfolios in collaboration with other high-impact practices provides opportunities for students to make connections between various educational experiences. Educational research suggests high-impact practices increase rates of student retention and student engagement. Come explore and learn how TCC is engaged with this HIP.

Mar. 27, Wed., 2 - 3:30 p.m. | Mentoring Women of Color: Identify Students' Unique Needs & Establish Support Systems to Ensure Their Success

Does your institution provide strategies and programs that make women of color feel valued, safe, a sense of belonging and supported throughout their educational experience?

Traversing predominately white academic environments can be daunting and difficult for students of color — particularly women. Therefore, designing programs and interventions that increase institutional commitment and sense of belonging for Women of Color is critical. Mentoring relationships help to build trust and accountability, and can establish efficacy and capacity-building opportunities for women of color and help them persist to a degree.

Gather your colleagues from across campus and engage in critical discussion on ways you can better support and serve your women of color. Our expert presenters will build your capacity to better mentor across racial and ethnic lines.

Become an essential resource to students who seek a relationship that helps them navigate institutional barriers by engaging across the racial, ethnic and cultural divide. Join our expert presenters as they discuss these challenges and others relating to working with students of color, best practices and their personal experiences in helping women of color succeed.

Mar. 28, Thurs., 10:30 - 11:30 a.m. | How the 90s Sparked Change in College Teaching

Active learning is the buzzword in educational communities with a heavy focus on the role of the learner. While the concept is often presented as a new approach, it actually came to light in the 1990s right along with boy bands, big hair and tapered jeans. Come explore history as we compare the old paradigm and new paradigms of teaching.

Presenter Summer Dusek, Location FPAC 216

Mar. 28, Thurs., 2:30 - 3:30 p.m. | High-Impact Practice: Undergraduate Research

Many colleges and universities are now providing research experiences for students in all disciplines. Undergraduate research, however, has been most prominently used in science disciplines. With strong support from the National Science Foundation and the research community, scientists are reshaping their courses to connect key concepts and questions with students’ early and active involvement in systematic investigation and research. The goal is to involve students with actively contested questions, empirical observation, cutting-edge technologies and the sense of excitement that comes from working to answer important questions. Educational research suggests high-impact practices increase rates of student retention and student engagement. Come explore and learn how TCC is engaged with this HIP.

Presenter Summer Dusek, Location FPAC 216

Mar. 28, Thurs., 4:30 - 6:30 p.m. | CRASE: Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events

The Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) course is designed to educate, empower and provide attendees with an action plan for an active shooter event. Through situational awareness and mental scripting, attendees will leave with a sense of preparedness, not fear. The goal is to provide a decisive action plan that will limit accessibility for the shooter and assist police response. Officers will be available to address specific questions and concerns after training.

Mar. 29, Fri., 12:30 - 1:30 p.m. | Backward Design

The backward design framework suggests that instructors should consider these overarching learning goals and how students will be assessed prior to consideration of how to teach the content. For this reason, backward design is considered a much more intentional approach to course design than traditional methods of design. This workshop will explain the benefits of incorporating backward design. Then it will elaborate on the three stages that backward design encompasses. Finally, an overview of a backward design template is provided for practice.

Presenter Summer Dusek, Location FPAC 216

Mar. 29, Fri., 3 - 4 p.m. | High-Impact Practice: Diversity/Global Learning

Many colleges and universities now emphasize courses and programs that help students explore cultures, life experiences, and worldviews different from their own. These studies—which may address US diversity, world cultures, or both—often explore “difficult differences” such as racial, ethnic, and gender inequality, or continuing struggles around the globe for human rights, freedom, and power. Frequently, intercultural studies are augmented by experiential learning in the community and/or study abroad. Educational research suggests high-impact practices increase rates of student retention and student engagement. Come explore and learn how TCC is engaged with this HIP.

Multidisciplinary research demonstrates active learning approaches increase student engagement and achievement (Freeman et al 2014). This workshop introduces a range of activities–including ungraded quizzes, “minute papers,” and group work–for use in different instructional settings.

Presenter Summer Dusek, Location FPAC 216

Apr. 1, Mon., 2:30 - 3:30 p.m. | High-Impact Practice: Service Learning, Community-Based Learning

In these programs, field-based “experiential learning” with community partners is an instructional strategy—and often a required part of the course. The idea is to give students direct experience with issues they are studying in the curriculum and with ongoing efforts to analyze and solve problems in the community. A key element in these programs is the opportunity students have to both apply what they are learning in real-world settings and reflect in a classroom setting on their service experiences. These programs model the idea that giving something back to the community is an important college outcome, and that working with community partners is good preparation for citizenship, work, and life. Educational research suggests high-impact practices increase rates of student retention and student engagement. Come explore and learn how TCC is engaged with this HIP.

Apr. 2, Tues., 10:30 - 11:30 a.m. | How Students Learn: Applying the Principles of Learning to Teaching

The first step in designing teaching strategies that make coursework effective and meaningful for students is to understand what helps them learn. In this workshop, we discuss evidence-based teaching strategies relevant for teaching in higher education contexts. We will discuss the seven principles of student learning identified by Ambrose et al (2010) and their significance in teaching and learning, including strategies for how participants might apply these principles into their own teaching.

Presenter Summer Dusek, Location FPAC 216

Apr. 2, Tues., 2 - 3 p.m. | Energize Your Lectures to Help Students Meaningfully Engage With Your Subject

Most college teachers enter their classrooms with thousands of hours of experience in their chosen field and typically face students who have little to no experience with that field of study. In this setting, teachers may take for granted all that they know and are able to do. In a sense, they expect students to "get inside their head." This has been called "expert blind spot"—experts have a difficult time seeing or meeting the needs of relative novices which can be challenging in teaching. This Magna Online Seminar discusses ways to overcome this expert blind spot by addressing how to harness the power of examples, case studies, visualizations and stories to help students meaningfully engage with your subject.

Apr. 3, Wed., 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. | Equity & Access: Teaching Practices in the Diverse Classroom

Inclusive teaching in higher education refers to the ways in which all aspects of teaching and learning are designed and implemented to enable learning that is meaningful, relevant, and accessible to all students regardless of social differences such as race, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, class, sexuality, disability/ability, religion, nationality, age, and military status (Hockings, 2010). This workshop introduces specific strategies to effectively engage all students.

Presenter Summer Dusek, Location FPAC 216

Apr. 3, Wed., 2:30 - 3:30 p.m. | Assessing Subjective Student Work

This workshop explores ways of assessing student work in subjective student work often in disciplines such as art, music, drama, dance, creative writing etc. We will examine strategies for clearly communicating to students 1) how they are being evaluated before they complete assignments, and 2) why their work does or does not meet instructor expectations. We will discuss how to develop a list of expectations and evaluative criteria, assign grading value to those items, and build a grading rubric based on that information. Together we will identify issues involved in assessment and feedback in the fine arts (subjectivity, constructive feedback, establishing credibility as a grader etc.).

The book Just Mercy is at once an unforgettable account of an idealistic, gifted young lawyer’s coming of age, a moving window into the lives of those he has defended, and an inspiring argument for compassion in the pursuit of true justice.  Bryan Stevenson was a young lawyer when he founded the Equal Justice Initiative, a legal practice dedicated to defending those most desperate and in need: the poor, the wrongly condemned, and women and children trapped in the farthest reaches of our criminal justice system. One of his first cases was that of Walter McMillian, a young man who was sentenced to die for a notorious murder he insisted he didn’t commit. The case drew Bryan into a tangle of conspiracy, political machination, and legal brinksmanship—and transformed his understanding of mercy and justice forever.

This webinar is designed to share best practices for getting and keeping students engaged in the classroom. Too many times, professors find they are asked questions they answered during their lectures.

This webinar demonstrates easy ways to differentiate instruction during class, thereby holding students’ attention and increasing their engagement.

During this webinar, participants learn how to use technology to increase student engagement, flip the classroom from teacher-centric to student-centric, and identify on-the-spot methods for assessing student learning. This information is valuable for increasing student achievement and instructors’ understanding of student comprehension.

Participants must provide their own transportation to Montgomery, AL and have supervisor approval to attend the trip.

The book Just Mercy is at once an unforgettable account of an idealistic, gifted young lawyer’s coming of age, a moving window into the lives of those he has defended, and an inspiring argument for compassion in the pursuit of true justice.  Bryan Stevenson was a young lawyer when he founded the Equal Justice Initiative, a legal practice dedicated to defending those most desperate and in need: the poor, the wrongly condemned, and women and children trapped in the farthest reaches of our criminal justice system. One of his first cases was that of Walter McMillian, a young man who was sentenced to die for a notorious murder he insisted he didn’t commit. The case drew Bryan into a tangle of conspiracy, political machination, and legal brinksmanship—and transformed his understanding of mercy and justice forever.

Nov 5, Mon 1-2 p.m. Technology vs. Innovation: Strategies to Build an Engaging Online Course

Does the inclusion of technology alone make a course innovative? While technology plays a significant role in education, it should serve as a means to an end rather than the end goal. Innovation in its simplest form means change. It's in the way we design our courses, create our objectives, implement our instructional materials, and design our assessments. And, not necessarily, related to the colors, templates, technologies or the size of our budgets.

As the educational landscape shifts and evolves, it is essential that we change to meet the diverse needs of learners. Most learners today are fast-paced, visually-stimulated, and seeking experiences relevant to their lives. This presentation will offer strategies to make your courses more engaging through multiple modalities. We'll present a multi-developer perspective to show how designers, instructors, and media technologists can contribute to course enhancements.

Nov 26, Mon 12-1 p.m. Diversity Book Club #5

Participants must provide their own transportation to Montgomery, AL and have supervisor approval to attend the trip.

The book Just Mercy is at once an unforgettable account of an idealistic, gifted young lawyer’s coming of age, a moving window into the lives of those he has defended, and an inspiring argument for compassion in the pursuit of true justice.  Bryan Stevenson was a young lawyer when he founded the Equal Justice Initiative, a legal practice dedicated to defending those most desperate and in need: the poor, the wrongly condemned, and women and children trapped in the farthest reaches of our criminal justice system. One of his first cases was that of Walter McMillian, a young man who was sentenced to die for a notorious murder he insisted he didn’t commit. The case drew Bryan into a tangle of conspiracy, political machination, and legal brinksmanship—and transformed his understanding of mercy and justice forever.

Dec. 7, Fri 10-10:45 a.m. and 1-1:45 p.m.Going Gameful: Level Up Your Learners’ Motivation

We all want learners to be deeply engaged, to take risks and be resilient in the face of failure. To increase learner engagement we need to tap into their intrinsic motivation. Gameful pedagogy, and gameful course design in particular, is a framework for giving learners agency and supporting their intrinsic motivation inspired by game design principles. This session will explore the philosophy behind gameful pedagogy, the principles, derived from that philosophy, which can guide your course designs, and the teaching practices that can further support the intrinsic motivation of your learners. Participants will brainstorm ways they might use gameful pedagogy in their own course design, understand the difference between gameful learning and gamification, and develop a plan for giving students choices in how to demonstrate their learning.

Magna Seminar: Building a Tougher Student: Applying the Research on Intellectual Development

As new students enter your institution each year, they bring a new way of thinking and learning with them. For this reason, you must understand how to mold your teaching to fit the needs of today’s learners. Have you noticed that students are less resilient than they were in the past? Are they less able to think critically? Many instructors would agree. By applying research on how students learn and intellectually develop, you can foster a growth mindset, improve learning, and ultimately build tougher modern learners. Are you ready to improve the way students learn in your classroom?

This is a webinar that you can join from anywhere; please email cpe [at] tcc.fl.edu for the login information.

Magna Seminar: Collaborative Learning Approaches that Support Neurodiverse Students

This workshop is an opportunity to learn more about applying a growth mindset pedagogy in our classrooms. We will look at ways we can reframe our language, assignments, and assessments towards a model of growth mindset. Let's take all of the great things we are already doing and collaborate ways in which the theory of Growth Mindset can be integrated and infused into our classroom culture.

This is a webinar that you can join from anywhere; please email cpe [at] tcc.fl.edu for the login information.

Magna Seminar: Create Influence Beyond Campus: Video Basics for Faculty

Classroom video started as recorded lectures, then morphed into searchable lectures or dividing lectures into chunks. But by thinking about video a little differently—in terms of microlectures, series, and challenge videos—you’ll not only better engage your students but also make a bigger impact on a greater group of people. This in turn can lead to a vast array of opportunities to establish your expertise in your field, increase your exposure, and acquire greater grant and research funding. You’ll learn multiple ways to conceptualize video use in and out of the classroom. Explore video’s role in various aspects of academic life as well as how video can help establish your expertise and open opportunities beyond the classroom.

This is a webinar that you can join from anywhere; please email cpe [at] tcc.fl.edu for the login information. 

Magna Seminar: Creative Course Design: Yes You Can!

You will learn strategies to help students achieve performance targets while also restoring student engagement through a variety of practical, actionable teaching techniques.

Magna Seminar: Cultivating a Growth Mindset

Bringing flavor and variety to courses is often a struggle—especially if you’re teaching the same course multiple times and year after year. But change is important! It’s what keeps student engagement high and teaching inspired.

Magna Seminar: Wake Them Up! Engaging Students in the Twenty-First-Century Classroom

Classroom video started as recorded lectures, then morphed into searchable lectures or dividing lectures into chunks. But by thinking about video a little differently—in terms of microlectures, series, and challenge videos—you’ll not only better engage your students but also make a bigger impact on a greater group of people. This in turn can lead to a vast array of opportunities to establish your expertise in your field, increase your exposure, and acquire greater grant and research funding. You’ll learn multiple ways to conceptualize video use in and out of the classroom. Explore video’s role in various aspects of academic life as well as how video can help establish your expertise and open opportunities beyond the classroom.
