Rethinking Presentation Slides Using Assertion-Evidence Structure

Event Location: 
Lucille Little Fine Arts Library, Room 205

Event concludes at 4:00 p.m.

This workshop is part of the New Faculty Teaching Academy series designed to provide new faculty with basic information that will contribute to a successful start at UK. However, all instructional populations are welcomed to attend.

This workshop encourages you to consider an alternative approach to slide design known as Assertion-Evidence Structure developed by Michael Alley at Penn State University. This technique eliminates bullets, minimizes text, and incorporates relevant graphics as a means of enhancing learning and retention. Summer break provides an opportunity to redesign presentation slides for the Fall semester.

Promoting Cross-Disciplinary Self-Regulation

Event Location: 
Lucille Little Fine Arts Library, Study Room 1 (second floor)

Event Concludes at 4:00 p.m.

Although learning transfer (applying skills and knowledge to new learning contexts) is a crucial goal of higher education, it often does not occur. Self-regulated learning (SRL) is a well-established process by which individuals develop goals, select learning strategies, and monitor their performance. In this workshop, after introducing participants to learning transfer and SRL, we will use case studies to show how science and humanities instructors promote SRL. The group will identify transferable and discipline-specific SRL components and participants will design activities to foster transferable self-regulatory skills.

Light refreshments will be provided.

Graduate Student Workshop: Facilitating Classroom Discussions

Event Location: 
Study Room 1, Lucille Little Fine Arts Library

Event concludes at 6:15.

Knowledge is often produced in communication with others. But encouraging and facilitating effective classroom discussions is challenging when faced with students who are silent, disengaged, or unprepared. Participants in this workshop will discuss strategies for facilitation, including encouraging student engagement and what to do when conversations are derailed or become heated. We will also look at the characteristics of productive discussion and the challenges of defining/assessing participation.

Graduate Student Workshop: Co-Constructing Knowledge: Collaborative Pedagogy in the Classroom

Event Location: 
Study Room 1, Lucille Little Fine Arts Library

Event concludes at 6:15.

Collaborative learning is the use of student groups in the classroom to enhance engagement and learning. Instructors are often met with resistance from students to this pedagogical approach despite extensive educational research that finds collaborative learning enhances student success and belonging in the classroom. Participants in this workshop will learn and discuss the reasons for and potential pitfalls of collaborative learning. We will also focus on different approaches to group learning, assignments, and assessment.
