CEITL Events Calendar


Talk about Teaching, Session 1: The Card Sorting Activity 12:30 PM to 2:00 PM

12:30 PM to 2:00 PM - MUB 162: The Card Sorting Activity: Assessing Student Conceptual Organization of Subject Matter as a Measure of Deep ComprehensionProficiency in domain-specific conceptual organization is a characteristic of deep comprehension. One way to gauge students’ conceptual organization is with a card sorting task. This activity is designed to help assess whether students possess relatively shallow or deep understanding of specific subject areas. Students with novice level content understanding typically sort cards according to shallow or mixed features; whereas, content experts sort according to deep features. When assigned at the beginning of the semester, this activity can help inform your initial approach as you begin your course. Conceptual mastery of material over time might be reflected students’ performance in a repeat assignment of this activity at the end of the semester. Participants in this workshop will learn to develop and incorporate the card sorting activity into their courses. Workshop leaders will assist participants in generating cards for their courses.

WAC Faculty Network Brown Bag 12:10 PM to 1:30 PM

12:10 PM to 1:30 PM - MUB 321: A round-table event for faculty to share information and discuss writing in their courses. All faculty interested in managing writing in their courses are welcome.

CEITL Workshop Series: Feedback (Part 3) 12:30 PM to 2:00 PM

12:30 PM to 2:00 PM - MUB 164: Leverage Technology to Facilitate Student Feedback Providing prompt and targeted feedback is important for student learning, both in the classroom and online. In fact, some research has indicated that feedback can double the rate of learning for students. In this interactive session, participants will explore the use of technology (particularly tools in Canvas) to facilitate feedback on student work. Participants will examine Canvas speedgrader, markup tools, grading rubrics, and the use of media for feedback. As a group, we will discuss best practices and research notes on the effective uses of these tools. Bring your laptop for hands-on opportunities during the session.

Talk About Teaching Session 3: Going Hybrid: A Case of First Impression 12:30 PM to 2:00 PM

12:30 PM to 2:00 PM - MUB 162: The University of New Hampshire Franklin Pierce School of Law increased the amount of distance education credits a student could take in an ABA approved program. As the first law school to create a hybrid JD with a focus, we will discuss how we constructed a new blended learning environment without blueprints. In this workshop, we will discuss student benefits of a hybrid classroom, pedagogical challenges, strategies to create parity between the hybrid and residential programs, and the instructional design process. We will hear faculty testimony and view real hybrid classroom time to gain student and instructor perspective. We will discuss:Day-to-day of teaching a hybrid courseAsynchronous versus synchronous online instructionReducing faculty/student fatigue during residential periodsAssignments, grading, and academic successMarketing and assessing this programMoving forward Please bring computers and a specific course or program you would consider “hybridizing." Workshop facilitators will work with participants to help begin a design and develop a two-year vision map for a course or academic program, incorporating varying levels of distance education components.
