Infusing A Growth Mindset Culture Throughout Your Courses

Online

Mindset culture refers to the degree to which values, norms, policies, and practices in an environment signal that ability can be improved over time with effort and feedback (growth mindset culture) or is stable and fixed from birth (fixed mindset culture). Instructors convey their courses’ mindset culture through their teaching practices, policies, and implicit and explicit messages. This mindset culture then impacts student engagement and learning. This one-hour workshop invites instructors to think more intentionally about the mindset culture of their courses. We will focus on crafting messages that contribute to a growth mindset culture at key points in a course. These key points include at the beginning of the course, before important exams or assignments, when providing feedback on student performance, and at the end of the semester. We will also discuss messaging pitfalls that can unintentionally decrease student engagement and motivation. NOTE: This workshop is based on resources created by the College Transition Collaborative and will be open to instructors from other Ohio colleges and universities through the Ohio College Teaching Consortium (OCTC).

Introduction to Inclusive and Equitable Teaching Strategies for Teaching Assistants (TAs)

Online

This 90-minute workshop will explore how to support student learning by gaining awareness of the student experience and working to create an inclusive and equitable learning environment. Coming together with other graduate students, participants are also welcome to share strategies that have helped them in the past and challenges they anticipate for the upcoming year. Participants will investigate how to infuse diversity, equity, and inclusion into their teaching and how this may be similar or different to faculty.

Developing Community Agreements

Online

Community agreements are a shared set of values and expectations developed in collaboration with students aimed at making guidelines for classroom interactions transparent. In this 90-minute interactive virtual workshop, we will both discuss the process of engaging students in designing community agreements, as well as participate in the process of creating community agreements as part of our workshop. The workshop will outline a general process for facilitating the creation of community agreements, explore a range of situations and question prompts where community agreements might be valuable, and case study examples of how community agreements might be utilized in the classroom. Please note, this is an interactive workshop and attendees will be encouraged to participate in small group discussion via breakout rooms as well as contribute to a shared virtual document.

What Happened to the Adult Learner?

Online

This session is designed to reinvigorate the conversation on instructional approaches that best support the adult learner, or those age 25 and older who may or may not be juggling families and work in addition to pursuing a degree or certification. This panel discussion takes up the questions, who are the “new adult learners” and how can faculty both best respond to their needs, but also leverage their experiences in the classrooms. Faculty and staff share data on the new adult learner, insight into adult learners at OHIO, and new scholarship on adult learning, while adult learners themselves share the types of instructional contexts and strategies that have supported their success.
