In this workshop, Dr. Bass explores how faculty can employ the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) to focus classroom inquiry within their specific cultural, social, and educational context. SoTL practices, even when narrowly focused within particular disciplines such as STEM fields or the humanities, can illuminate crucial questions across multiple fields of inquiry. By engaging in SoTL, we may be able to surface the commonalities we all share as we prepare students for a world of complex challenges and continuous change. Details

Are you concerned that your students don’t know how to determine if information is credible? It’s a rich and challenging information world with quality information beyond just what is peer-reviewed. How do you equip students to think critically about the information that they find? Drawing from media literacy and information literacy, this workshop will provide ideas for faculty for in-class learning activities and out-of-class assignments that engage students in critically thinking about information.

Diversity statements are living documents that allow instructors to reflect on their conceptualization of and contributions to diversity and inclusion in the context of their teaching, service, and research. Diversity statements may be a required component of a job application for teaching positions, whether as a stand-alone document or as part of a teaching portfolio. In this first of the two part workshop, we will discuss the purpose of a diversity statement and typical components to include. We will also engage in activities to help you start writing your diversity statement. Details
