Upcoming Events (More Events)
What are your tips for the transition from high school to college? Professionalism, communication, regular attendance, respect--how can you help make these skills habitual? Award-winning associate professor Jodi Sterle, Animal Science, shares how she helps freshman adjust to learning in the 300+ large introductory class environment.
Sara Marcketti, Director, CELT and Professor in Apparel, Events & Hospitality Management, will guide participants through engagement strategies applicable for every classroom.
Are you interested in developing, or enhancing, a service-learning component within your course? You are invited to join this dynamic, interdisciplinary group as we share ideas and best practices of integrating service-learning into the curriculum. These interactive sessions will include topical discussions, readings, and sharing of best practices.
This topic-based teaching and learning community meets throughout the academic year. We work as teams to optimize application exercises, readiness assurance tests, peer evaluation, and other aspects of course design, and also invite speakers to facilitate discussions of TBL theory, research and classroom application.
When disruptive conduct takes place, a number of Iowa State University instructors recommend addressing it immediately. Their advice: remain calm, assess the situation, listen to student concerns. Especially recommended: provide a clear, firm response that is consistent with responses you've given other students. The strategies and resources in this workshop will help you prepare for these moments before they occur.
How do students learn best in your discipline? Where can you publish the way you solved instructional problems? You are invited to share and discuss DBER journal articles, seek feedback as you begin designing your own educational research projects, and form collaborations with participants from other disciplines.
