Fall 2014

  • Tuesday, September 2, 3-5 pm in MLIB 002 TLP Training Lab- Building Traditional Assessments (live or online): A QOLT-Friendly Approach-- Ben Seipel-- Hands on Workshop

Maybe you have never been trained professionally to write quizzes, exams, or other types of assessments. Or perhaps you just want to see what other formats, configurations, and approaches exist. Possibly you want some guidance on transferring your face-to-face assessments into the Blackboard Learn platform. If any of these resonate, then this hands-on workshop is for you!

  • Wednesday, October 22, 12-1:30pm in MLIB 002 TLP Training Lab- Using Video to Enhance Learning & Teaching: A Hands-On Workshop-- Claudine Franquet and Kate Transchel

We all have heard that “Millennial” students (the current generation coming through Chico State) are visual learners, used to turning to YouTube videos and Video Blogs for entertainment, personal edification, and self-expression. Come and hear how one faculty member has successfully incorporated video introductions as well as video assignments into her class, then start learning how to use our free tools to enhance your own courses with video. 

  • Tuesday, November 4, 3-5 pm, MLIB Studio A- Demystifying the RTP Process-- Lyndall Ellingson, Mitchell Johns and Kate McCarthy

The process of Retention, Tenure, and Promotion can be stressful, seem obscure. In this panel discussion, faculty members from every academic college will answer questions about how to navigate the process successfully. Learn about strategic planning, finding mentorship, preparing your dossier, and sailing through the personnel committee interview.

  • Friday, February 20, 2-4pm, SSC 122- Approaches to Learning & Teaching (through) Writing-- Chris Fosen, Kim Jaxon, Laura Sparks, Deborah McCabe, & Maria DeCastro

How do we get excited about writing, or learn to write better? By reading more? Simply doing more writing? Focusing on grammar? Or structure? Or content? What is the value of writing in the learning process? In this workshop, several faculty members will share their own experience as well as research on the subject.
