Abstracts

Keynote Dr. Peter Felten - How do we engage students as partners in teaching and learning? 

Typically we teach to students. What happens if we approach our work differently, aiming to teach with students? Emerging research suggests that engaging students as partners in teaching and learning has the potential to enhance, and perhaps even transform, student learning – and also our teaching. This interactive keynote will explore practical strategies from diverse disciplines for creating and sustaining student-faculty partnerships in teaching and learning.


 

Keynote Dr. Angela Linse - How do we create truly inclusive courses? Practical approaches for  faculty

Dr. Linse’s interactive keynote is designed to help us think about how to create course environments in which all students can learn. We enable learning for all students when we ensure that all of our students experience learning environments in which they are respected as individuals and valued as unique contributors. CoTL attendees will learn about established (and practical) inclusive teaching practices, identify those they already use, and commit to trying additional strategies. Together we will discuss why these practices are inclusive and why inclusion is critical for student success. We will also consider research findings associated with two of the most intractable barriers to inclusive teaching because they create exclusive learning environments. Faculty will leave with the ability to identify and plan responses to exclusionary incidents that may occur in courses and think about alternative actions.


 

Monday, May 7th Lunch Panel - "Sustainability"

How can disciplines with different views and definitions of sustainability engage with each other to create impactful innovations?

  • Panel moderator:  Dr. Nick Gossett, (USA) Member, University Committee on Teaching and Learning 
  • Panelists:
    - Shannon Shelley-Tremblay (USA):  Sustainability and Civic Engagement - opportunities at USA
    - Dr. Leigh Ann Litwiller (SHC):  The ‘Garbage’ Project - what was it and what did we learn?                                              [Theology, Philosophy & Science]
    - Dr. Rob Cloutier (USA):  What does systems engineering teach us that we can apply to an issue like sustainability?
    - Dr. Lonnie Burnett (UM)
    - Dale Pate, USA:  How I am putting together courses and experiences for my sustainability learning pathway
    - John Dahlen - Master Gardener and Entrepreneur:  Sustainability in the real world - lessons from a non-academic context
  • Additional Discussion
    - What does sustainability mean in your discipline?
    - What are ways you have incorporated sustainability ideas into your work?
    - Could it be incorporating arts and humanities into STEM fields (STEAM?)
    - What new opportunities arise if we discuss ways in which to work in interdisciplinary contexts?
    - How do we sustain these innovations?

Tuesday, May 8th Lunch Panel - "Online Teaching and Learning:  Opportunities and Challenges"

Teaching for Impact: Engaging Students Innovatively Online

The abundance of online tools available nowadays support teaching and learning in all forms of instruction - traditional face to face, hybrid (occasional meetings) and fully online. In this panel, participants will share perspectives on how they engage students through online innovations for meaningful educational impact. Each panelist will make a 5 minute presentation and then participants at lunch tables will engage in discussion around their own experiences with fostering student engagement and learning through the use of online tools. ILC will collect any artifacts generated at the tables and share with all conference attendees.

  • Panel Moderator: Dr. Demetrius Semien, Spring Hill College
  • Panelists:

- Dr. Christopher Parrish, USA, How course design informs my online course
- Dr. Peggy Delmas, USA, Getting university level Quality Matters certification for your courses
- Dr. LaShondra Robinson, Bishop State
- Distance Learning student 


 

Tuesday, May 8th Afternoon Workshop by Dr. Angela Linse

Uses and Abuses of Data from Student Ratings of Instruction:  a Workshop for Administrators

Most faculty love to hate student ratings!  Why?  Because they may be the only evidence used to evaluate teaching, they are often over-interpreted, or assigned a precision they do not possess. Yet, most faculty also agree that students should have the opportunity to provide feedback on the learning environment created by faculty.  

In this session, you will have an opportunity to ask any question about student ratings. We will discuss the latest fiery stories in the academic press, and why despite them, student ratings are unlikely to disappear any time soon.  You will also learn something of the long history of research on student ratings by psychometricians and finally, some strategies for effectively using student ratings data and controlling the narrative about them.
