Effective Online Discussion Facilitation
Presenters:
Leann Kaiser
Category:
Other
Date:
Monday, January 14th 2013
Start Time:
11:00 AM
Session Length:
50 Minutes
Room:
213-15 LSC
Description:
During this session information will be presented that is applicable in nature. Although online education is not new, research and discussions continue to be ongoing regarding best practices, and how those practices differ depending on the learner population and needs. In many online courses interaction through discussion with both the facilitator and fellow classmates is often a key aspect in course design. If this is put forth as a major learning tool, course designers and facilitators need to have current knowledge of how to best guide these discussions in order to help the students reach stated learning outcomes. In addition, facilitating discussion in an online setting is quite different from facilitating face to face, and understanding this can be a key to successful facilitation.
Goals and Target Audience:
Two main outcomes will be emphasized in this session. First, best practices will be shared that attendees can use in their own online discussion design or facilitation. Second, the content presented in the session will help attendees to understand what is known regarding effective discussion facilitation and the various positive course outcomes stemming from such discussions (including building class community, learner engagement, and learning transfer). This session is appropriate for those who work in some capacity in an online environment in which discussions are a course element. Discussion may either be a central focus or just one aspect of the overall course. Educators who facilitate discussions could benefit from this session, as well as those who design online courses and/or work in faculty development to improve online teaching practices.

In this session we will discuss the advantages of different systems for encouraging student responsibility for academic integrity and look at results from a recent survey of “best practices” in universities such as CSU. Those who have previously been at Honor Code schools will be encouraged to share their perceptions of the effectiveness of that system. Participants will be polled about their opinion for what direction CSU should pursue as we look to our future and how to best fashion student and faculty responsibilities for academic integrity.

Faculty and other instructional staff, and graduate students pursuing a career in academia are encouraged to join in this discussion. The session’s goals are: • To provide an understanding of the difference between “Conduct Code”, “Honor Code”, and “Modified Honor Code” systems for promoting and adjudicating issues of academic integrity. • To present data on the effectiveness of each system for promoting academic integrity and for discouraging academic misconduct among students. • To present data about how other Universities structure honor code systems, honor councils, appeal processes, reporting lines, and support services for academic integrity. • To gather opinions as to how CSU should structure a system if we move to an Honor Code.

Goals and Target Audience:
Audience members will receive materials (syllabus, exams, quizzes, etc.) from introductory statistics and educational psychology courses where TBL was used. The presenter will walk through the elements of TBL and show how each one was adapted to the courses. Technology is an important component of TBL and free open-source web-based tools will be available for audience members. All attendees should bring a laptop as several aspects will be demonstrated by having audience members act as students.

Even at institutions with a police department on campus, a student who is the victim of a crime may be more inclined to report it to someone other than the campus police. For this reason, the Clery Act requires all institutions to collect crime reports from a variety of individuals and organizations that Clery considers to be campus security authorities. This session will explain the duties of a campus security authority, and what their responsibilites are when a crime is reported to them.
Goals and Target Audience:
The goal of this training is to reach and educate as many campus security authorities as possible about their responsibilities in crime reporting. A Campus security authority (CSA) is a Clery-specific term that encompasses four groups of individuals and organizations associated with an institution. 1. A campus police department or a campus security department of an institution. 2. Any individual or individuals who have responsibility for campus security but who do not constitute a campus police department or a campus security department (e.g., an individual who is responsible for monitoring the entrance into institutional property). 3. Any individual or organization specified in an institution’s statement of campus security policy as an individual or organization to which students and employees should report criminal offenses (e.g., Women and Gender Advocacy Center). 4. An official of an institution who has significant responsibility for student and campus activities, including, but not limited to, student housing, athletics, student discipline and campus judicial proceedings. An official is defined as any person who has the authority and the duty to take action or respond to particular issues on behalf of the institution.

Description:
Learning Communities at Colorado State University are cohorts of students intentionally brought together around a common purpose with structured integration of curricular and co-curricular elements in order to promote student learning, retention, transition, and success. Due to the substantial effort required to administer learning communities on campus, it is important to understand if they make a positive difference for students. One way of assessing this is to explore our response data from the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE). The NSSE is an online survey that helps us to better understand our campus environment and student behavior and is the primary institutional level tool used to measure student engagement at CSU. The NSSE collects information from first-year and senior undergraduates at hundreds of universities about their participation in programs and activities relevant to their learning and personal development. The results provide an estimate of how students spend their time (which we know influences their success) and can be used as an indirect measure of student learning and development.
Goals and Target Audience:
This session will: • provide an overview and impact of Learning Communities, • provide an overview of the NSSE survey and benchmarks, • talk about student engagement in the context of Learning Communities, • share exciting practices occurring here at CSU. Audience: students, staff, faculty, administrators

Critical Thinking
Date:
Tuesday, January 15th 2013
Start Time:
11:00 AM
Session Length:
50 Minutes
Room:
221 TILT Building
Description:
Nothing encourages curiosity more than seeking answers to really good questions, so using questions to promote critical thinking would be the focus of this session. As teachers, we know that questions are more than a way to test knowledge. They can be a means of increasing engagement, promoting critical thinking, and encouraging thoughtful discussion. It is therefore useful and beneficial to refine our questioning skills to increase student learning. Not only is there value in instructors refining their questioning ability, there is also substantial value in the students’ participation in the crafting of good questions—it’s another level of engaged critical thinking that allows students to develop the art of good inquiry. This session will explore a two-pronged approach in the art of asking questions: how faculty can ask better questions of their students (during class discussion, for writing prompts, and when commenting on student papers) and how students can be instructed to ask/write good questions for in-class and/or online discussions. Both of these approaches have the common goal of inspiring genuine curiosity and engaging critical thinking within the classroom environment –both the physical space as well as the digital space.
Goals and Target Audience:
The primary audience for this session is instructors who want to refine their questioning capabilities. The goals for this audience include the following: creating good questions that prompt students to critically engage with the content during class discussion; creating good questions that students can critically respond to on forums (or other online media); creating good questions that students can critically respond to in papers and in-class writing activities; helping students understand how to ask good questions and why it's beneficial; and finally, having students practice the art of questioning within a class discussion and/or an online discussion.

Date:
Tuesday, January 15th 2013
Start Time:
1:00 PM
Session Length:
50 Minutes
Room:

Description:
New graduate teaching assistants are often expected to begin teaching with little to no professional development or instruction on how to teach. In this proposal we discuss techniques for teaching new teachers "on the fly" as they begin their journey into the classroom (i.e. we introduce classroom activities that the teacher will learn to become a more proficient teacher through teaching with). In particular, we focus on special activities created to influence the teacher's regular classroom practice. We focus on activities that will help new teachers become more aware of and responsive to student thinking, which forms the foundation for effective classroom practice. Although these techniques have been developed in the context of mathematics, they should be easily adaptable to other academic fields.
Goals and Target Audience:
This session is appropriate for: teacher trainers (e.g., course coordinators), new teachers, or any teacher who would like to think more about student thinking. The goal is that participants who attend the session will leave with practical techniques and activities they can use in their classroom (or implement in the classrooms of others).

Room:
214-16 LSC
Description:
For the past few months, the Geospatial Centroid at CSU has been working with instructional designers and professors from across campus to add elements of spatial thinking and geospatial technologies to courses in TILT’s course redesign process. While not always obvious at first, many classes can be enhanced by considering a spatial perspective. This means that location matters: in archeology or business, engineering or horticulture, water management or disease diffusion. Where something occurs is affected not only by that place but by other features, elements, or processes at work in that place. By using the increasingly available tools for spatial data visualization and analysis, instructors can expose their students to these data and encourage new observations and analyses of patterns not considered before. The Centroid offers resources to assist professors in incorporating spatial thinking into their classes and work.
Goals and Target Audience:
Faculty, students

Description:
Kuali Coeus (KC) Proposal Development and Budget modules will replace CSU’s existing proposal tracking, approval, and budget development tools (PASS/SP-1 & PBS). While we are in the process of implementing the entire KC research management system, we are exploring the range of functionality available in KC Budget, with an eye to helping all users get the most out of it. We would like to demonstrate and discuss the following specific ideas: 1. How to create/use KC templates to save time in proposal budgeting; 2. Using templates to create quick budget estimates on the fly(i.e. the 10 minute budget); 3. Using Templates to create a task or deliverable based budget; 4. How do we prepare a federal flow through proposal in KC (ex: NIH subaward )? 5. What is required for a federal proposal budget, non-System to System submission (ex: NSF FastLane submission)? 6. Budgeting for proposals to Commercial/Industry sponsors

This session will introduce participants to a series of “invention” activities that we developed for our general chemistry courses, based on an instructional model that has been demonstrated to enhance transfer of learning in other content domains. During the activities, students work with data sets that highlight contrasting cases to invent formulas, procedures, and other general rules regarding topics that have not yet been discussed in lecture. Our intent is that participation in these activities will prepare students to learn with deeper understanding when the topics are discussed in lecture. Participants in this session will have the opportunity to experience one example activity as a "student".
Goals and Target Audience:
The session is intended for faculty members who want to use research-based approaches in developing and implementing classroom activities that support transfer of learning. It will explain the basic structure of the activities that we developed, as well as a present of some of the successes and challenges that we experienced with implementation. It is also intended for advisors who work with CHEM 111 students, to provide information about how the activities are structured and insights into the goals of the CHEM 111 instructors in using the activities.

Equal Access through Affirmative Action in Employment and Education: Historical Perspective and Present Reality
Presenters:
Diana Prieto,Nick Cummings
Category:
Diversity
Date:
Wednesday, January 16th 2013
Start Time:
10:00 AM
Session Length:
1 Hour, 50 Minutes
Room:
211E LSC
Description:
Access to education is often taken for granted in our society, but historically the opportunity to become educated was closed to many. Following U.S. Supreme Court decisions, equal access to public elementary through high school education was administered with the help of law enforcement. In response to similar discrimination keeping members of our society from employment opportunities, a 1965 Presidential Executive Order mandated that federal contractors, entities conducting business with the federal government (including CSU), take “affirmative action” intended to provide equal employment access for qualified individuals. Since then, affirmative action has also come to describe efforts to provide equal access to education for people who might not otherwise be admitted. Throughout its history, affirmative action has been a controversial and debated practice. This controversy stems from both philosophical disagreements and misunderstandings about its intent and practical implementation. This session will explore the inception and history of affirmative action; its adoption in employment and adaptation by educational institutions; the myths that still surround affirmative action; and the future of affirmative action in light of the U.S. Supreme Court hearing a new challenge in the fall of 2012.
Goals and Target Audience:
All interested university community members are invited to take part in this discussion of the current state of affirmative action and equal opportunity in employment and university admissions.

Description:
Imagine walking into a presentation. It can be an office presentation, a sales presentation, a continuing education credit class, or even a workshop at a conference. Now, when the speaker begins and fires up a PowerPoint does your interest level automatically plummet a couple of notches? Do you start nodding off at the mere thought of bullet point, after bullet point... after bullet point? Wouldn't you love to never use or sit through another PowerPoint presentation ever again? Ladies and gentlemen… I give you Prezi. Come to the this PDI session on creating and presenting with Prezi and you’ll learn a new and visually engaging way to digitally tell a story, present to students, highlight the features and benefits of your department, and just about anything else you’d use PowerPoint for… but in an interesting and fresh way. You’ll see how Prezi is more intuitive, less linear, ditches the awful transition graphics, and has wonderful depth and fluid movement. Depth? Movement? That’s right. Prezi will better reach your audience in an engaging and interactive way that will make a lasting impact. Does PowerPoint do that for you? I didn’t think so. In addition to a general introduction, there will be step-by-step instruction. So, feel free to bring a laptop with you and create a Prezi as I present it to you. Death by PowerPoint? Prezi to the rescue!
Goals and Target Audience:
The primary goal is to introduce a new presentation tool to help speakers/presenters to liven up their message in a way that is exciting, engaging, and interactive for the audience. The target audience is anyone who would create a presentation of any size for any reason. It's use is diverse and could pull from all levels of faculty/staff on campus in any department.

Date:
Wednesday, January 16th 2013
Start Time:
1:00 PM
Session Length:
50 Minutes
Room:
105 TILT Building
Description:
Undergraduate students too often sit idly in class, perhaps imagining that their presence alone translates to comprehension and retention of course material. Then exam time arrives and it becomes clear that a half-attentive approach to classroom time hasn't served them well. In this session, we offer a model of an in-class mini writing sequence that probes student understanding and compels students to think. This type of writing does not require extensive individual feedback but can be quickly assessed to achieve both student accountability and an understanding of whole-class needs. Meanwhile, engaged students gain direct benefit from the effort involved in thinking through writing. The model was recently tested by the presenters who found modest gains in student performance as result of informal, in-class writing.
Goals and Target Audience:
This session aims to engage participants in thinking about how and when to support student thinking through low-stakes writing that requires similarly low-stakes grading. The session welcomes graduate students and faculty from across the campus who are interested in integrating writing into their courses and departmental programs.

Whatever Happened to the United States Adoption of the Metric System?
Presenters:

Category:
Personal/Professional Enrichment
Date:
Wednesday, January 16th 2013
Start Time:
1:00 PM
Session Length:
50 Minutes
Room:
210 LSC
Description:
Metric is inevitable for the United States! History tells us that countries have only switched to metric, none the other way (except for temporary reversions). The U.S. remains in the midst of its metric transition as measurement changes are made in various sectors of the economy. Therefore, this information is especially important for teachers/instructors, who should also know our metric history and its current status. The U.S. “missed the boat” in the 1970s when the rest of the English-speaking world converted to metric. That was a time when the metric system was being taught in schools, and metric was intended to replace our former units in most aspects of daily life. However, the lack of firm deadlines for conversion has hindered progress towards metric. Therefore, the U.S. remains the only major industrial nation not using the metric system. The voluntary (slow) path that the U.S. chose to follow is why we are still struggling with metric transition. Most people are surprised when they learn of the large number of consumer products, services, and standards that already use metric units, but that are mostly hidden to the average/casual observer.
Goals and Target Audience:
This lecture presents the current status of the metric system adoption by the U.S., where the change is currently taking place, and where it will likely take place in the future. Most Americans do not realize the extent of metric usage in the world, how widely metric is already used in the U.S., and that metric is inevitable for the U.S. Faculty and staff - as teachers, instructors, and leaders - should be knowledgeable of the history and status of the U.S. transition to metric. This PowerPoint lecture, with imbedded humor, explains what resources are available to help them, and it encourages participants to support the metric transition of the U.S.
