FEATURED ON-DEMAND EVENTS
Inclusive Teaching Strategies: Are They Working?
What we often don’t consider is how we will eventually know what worked and what didn’t. This workshop will suggest ways to generate data and student feedback to determine whether or not changes to your teaching practice are effective.
Moreover, the process for assessing student learning or the impact of instrutional strategies on the learning context need not require extensive expertise or data analysis. With some planning and focused design, classroom assessment techniques can be easily integrated.
During this workshop, Dave Sovic, Ph.D., Drake Institute for Teaching and Learning at Ohio State, assists participants to:
- Identify multiple forms of assessment of student learning to understand the impact and effectiveness of instructional practices.
- Consider which forms of assessment will work best in your course given the discipline, course modality and your time constraints.
- Develop a plan for building assessments into a course.
Equity and Inclusion in Higher Education
Puklay Pampa: Instructional Strategies for the Open Classroom
In Pukllay Pampa, participants create freely in the realm of possibility, on a space of transformation, a pampaor conceptual open field that connotes openness and potentiality where play has the effect of reinvigorating skill and creativity.
According to Wibbelsman and Ripley, “Our discussion will problematize practices of frontloading outcomes as fundamentally at odds with epistemologies that prioritize process and rehearsing emergent forms of inquiry, collective reflection, collaboration and intercultural engagement that often lead to unpredictable and exciting outcomes.
“We highlight the value of shifting spaces of learning that break out of assigned classrooms to make use of the wealth of resources at an R1 institution and consider the benefits of less structured approaches to learning that promote joy, wonder, excitement, inquisitiveness, and, yes, fun as key elements for sustained and sustainable DEI work and for cultivating a passion for life-long learning among our students.”
Learning Analytics to Support Inclusive Teaching
Attendees learn how partnerships between IR staff and faculty at Columbus State and Lorain County Community College have promoted inclusive teaching practices and learning contexts. Panelists will share strategies with participants, who are encouraged to consider leveraging data available to them at their own institutions. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to consider “real life” data sets relevant to the success of first-generation, returning adult learners and students of color.
