As part of a Title V grant extension the college has received, we are continuing our Active Learning workshop series but with a new twist. Instead of bringing in an external speaker, we are utilizing our own talent to facilitate 4 workshops on a variety of perspectives of active learning. Thirty faculty members will be selected to participate, and as a result of participation in the workshops AND applying Active Learning in your class this semester, each will receive up to a $420 stipend (for participation in all 4 workshops).
DATES AND TOPICS
- Workshop #1—Introduction to Active Learning (Gayle Miller and Mary Zenner), Fri. March 13, 9am-noon (Rm. T333)
- Workshop #2—Active Learning for Online/Blended Classes (Ryan Cumpston, Holly Ledvina, and Page Wolf), Mon. March 30-Thu. Apr. 9 (online)
- Workshop #3—Using the Active Learning Classrooms (Holly Ledvina and Kathy Johnston), Fri. April 10, Noon-3pm (L113 and C134)
- Workshop #4—Wrap up/Discussion (all facilitators), Mon. Apr. 27-Mon. May 4 (online)
All sessions will provide practical examples and takeaways for active learning that you can apply to your own classes.
HOW DO I GET SELECTED TO ATTEND?
This workshop is open to both full-time faculty AND good faith offer adjunct faculty. You must be able to attend AT LEAST workshop 1 and workshop 4 to be considered, with preference going to those who can attend all sessions. We will be selecting the 30 participants on a first-come, first-serve basis, but also trying to make sure we have a well-rounded representation from all academic divisions. *NOTE: If you attended any of the previous Title V Active Learning sessions with Dr. Eison, you are STILL eligible to participate!
Please be aware that this is a Title V grant-funded opportunity and not TLETC credit. Therefore, the stipend received would be above and beyond any current TLETC credit you may have. As part of having participated in the workshops AND developing/using Active Learning in your class this semester, each will receive up to a $420 stipend (for participation in all 4 workshops; pro-rated pay is $105/session).
The workshop series will consist of two on-campus and two online (Blackboard) sessions. In addition to attending the sessions, you will be expected to apply and use some of the active learning strategies that you have learned. IEPR will be collecting data afterward on student success in the classes where you used active learning strategies.
