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: 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.

Magna Seminar: Cultivating a Growth Mindset
