Teaching Circles are a central part of the Center for Teaching Excellence's thriving faculty community. All faculty are invited to network with faculty colleagues through the creation and implementation of a teaching circle. This session will explore best practices for collaborating in a teaching circle and offers information on creating new teaching circles. We will also discuss how to craft a successful mini-grant application to support your teaching circles's goals.
Faculty interested in applying for promotion won't want to miss Promotion night.
If you responded yes to any of these questions, please plan to attend Promotion Night.
Faculty witness and observe numerous student behaviors that
are disruptive or concerning in the classroom.
It can be difficult to know when and how to intervene to ensure that a
positive classroom environment is maintained and that all students have the
best chance of learning and success. IUP offers many services to support
faculty intervention for struggling students, but how do faculty learn about
how these services help in specific instances?
Utilizing a Green Dot Bystander Intervention framework and
techniques, this training will assist faculty in identifying the barriers that
may sometimes prevent them from intervening when concerning student behaviors
appear, and provide hands-on practical approaches to know how to positively intervene.
Participants will learn about services offered by IUP offices
to assist in interventions and work in small and large groups to develop
successful strategies for intervening to become better prepared to address issues
that arise in their classrooms.
Textbook costs are soaring, and more and more college students
are unable to afford them. Open Educational Resources have the potential to
substantially lower the cost of education, give faculty more control over their
instructional materials, and promote student success. Want to learn more about
these materials from IUP faculty who have implemented OER in their courses?
This workshop will introduce participants to what OER
materials are, how to locate high quality OER materials, and how and why your
colleagues are using them. Please bring
your laptop to this interactive session and join us to learn ways to implement
components of OER or to begin a total OER conversion!
