Session Title:
The Introverted Teacher: Strategies for Teaching and Leading
Presenters:
Emily Morgan
Category:
General Teaching Topics
Date:
Monday, January 14th 2019
Start Time:
9:00 AM
Session Length:
50 minutes
Room:
LSC 322
Description:
Particularly with the publishing of Susan Cain’s book, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking, we are paying attention to and more thoroughly considering the role of introverts in society. There is a call to celebrate introverts’ contributions and destigmatize the personality type, and rightly so. Educators are frequently in a performance situation – teaching class, leading discussion - and so, on some level, forced to behave more like an extrovert and if introverted, less like ourselves. As an introvert, I have struggled with this spectrum for years. I love what I do, but teaching with an extroverted personality is exhausting. It stands to reason that some sort of extroverted behavior is needed for classroom management alone, but how do introverted teachers navigate that and preserve our energy while serving our students in the best possible ways? How do we share our enthusiasm and passion for what we do in our own, somewhat quieter way? How do we function (and sometimes survive) as introverted teachers? My session will start with a brief discussion of an introverted personality type, largely culled from the field of psychology. Then, I will share my own experiences as an introverted teacher over the past ten years, as well as those of others with whom I’ve spoken. I will also draw upon existing ideas and approaches for introverted teachers and leaders. I will share strategies for educators culled from research on introverted teachers and leaders, as we are both. Attendees will leave with concrete strategies for being their true selves in their teaching lives. Studies indicate introverted teachers burn out more quickly than others. The teaching profession benefits from all personalities, and it behooves us to support introverts in this field. Figuring out how to be true to oneself, to be as authentic as possible, makes us better, more efficient teachers and leaders.
Goals and Target Audience:
While the session is geared toward teachers, I will also address teaching introverted students, so students, professors, and graduate assistants may also get something from this session.

This session will provide participants the opportunity to think about their own death and that of those they love, those they work with, and the students they teach and support. Whether facing their own death or knowing how to support someone else with the experience of death or the loss of a loved one, it is a relief to be prepared with the knowledge of the dying process.
Goals and Target Audience:
This session will provide information about the natural changes that may accompany dying, gently describe physical changes, and suggest how best to provide comfort. Participants will be encouraged to think and talk about the natural process of dying. The target audience for this presentation is faculty, staff, and students at CSU. Everyone will experience their own death and in the meantime will be involved in the death experienced by those they love and care about, those they know intimately, and those that they know only casually. No matter the nature of that relationship, it is comforting to know that we are prepared.

ORCID provides a unique and persistent identifier – an ORCID ID – that distinguishes faculty and students from other researchers and a mechanism for linking their research outputs and activities to their ID. This ID can be used to automate publication updates, connect to researcher’s current works, connect to existing grants, connect existing profiles (e.g., ResearcherID, ScopusID, Medeley) together, simplify the publication import process into Digital Measures and meet some Federal grant application requirements for the National Institutes of Health and the Grants.gov portal. This session will outline the benefits of having an ORCID, describe the process necessary to obtain an ORCID and explain how to complete the ORCID profile.
Goals and Target Audience:
Describe the process for obtaining an ORCID and integrating the ORCID with various systems including Digital Measures. Provide tips for completing an ORCID profile. Our target audience is anyone involved in research and publication including faculty and graduate students.

Session Length:
50 minutes
Room:
LSC 376
Description:
Whether you have been teaching for 2 months or 20 years, there is always more we can learn to be effective educators. For many adult educators, what we have learned has been gained “on the job” and we may have little formal background on how or why what we do works, nor ideas based on solid evidence on how to improve in areas where we struggle. Luckily, there is a depth of knowledge about how adults learn and how to facilitate that learning. During this session the presenters will share the major academic foundations of adult education. The presenters are professors in a graduate level program, teaching adult education practitioners. The information they present will be drawn from their knowledge of theoretical underpinnings and how application of those can lead to improved instructional methods and design. During this session the knowledge and experience of the participants will be utilized as their questions, struggles, and areas in which they want to improve will form the basis for the content presented. These issues presented by the participants will be directly addressed through the lens of adult education theory and foundations to assist participants to both understand the importance of these foundations and also to use them to improve their own teaching practices.
Goals and Target Audience:
GOALS: 1. Participants will be introduced to major theoretical foundations on how adults learn and how to facilitate learning. 2. Participants will share their own questions and issues related to teaching adults and apply adult learning theory to address those items. 3. Participants will be given tools to apply what they have learned during the session to improve their own teaching practice. TARGET AUDIENCE: Faculty and staff with teaching and/or instructional design responsibilities

Why We Do Not Measure Up! The Metric System in America
Presenters:
Don Hillger
Category:
Personal/Professional Enrichment
Date:
Monday, January 14th 2019
Start Time:
2:00 PM
Session Length:
50 minutes
Room:
LSC 304
Description:
Even though the United States has resisted the worldwide change to the metric system, its adoption is inevitable for Americans! History tells us that countries have only switched to metric, none the other way (except for temporary reversions). The US remains in the midst of its metric transition as measurements change in various aspects of business and life. This information is especially important for teachers/instructors, who should also know the history and current status of metric in the US. The US “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 a firm deadline and the voluntary nature of our conversion has hindered progress towards metric. Therefore, the US in effect remains the only major industrial nation not using the metric system. The slow (voluntary) path that the US 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, most of which are hidden to the average/casual observer.
Goals and Target Audience:
This lecture presents the current status of the metric system adoption by the US, 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 here, and that metric is inevitable for the US. Faculty and staff - as teachers, instructors, and leaders - should be knowledgeable of the history and status of the US transition to metric. This PowerPoint lecture, with imbedded humor, explains what resources are available to help them, and it encourages participants to not ignore, but support the metric transition of the US.

Description:
Over the last year, TILT has developed a program to develop and evaluate teaching effective at CSU. This program is an extension of the work that began in 2011 by the COTL Evaluating Teaching Effectiveness Task Force and was triggered by revisions to the CSU Faculty Manual (E.12.1 - Teaching and Advising) in December 2017. After extensive research into best practices in teaching and learning, along with feedback from CSU faculty and leadership, the TILT Teaching Effectiveness Team has identified 7 essential criteria for effective teaching and, therefore, student learning. Although the Framework separates each of the criteria, TILT recognizes the deep connections among them and is working to align the framework with the proposed student survey (LENS). The team has developed a program that outlines a process for departments and faculty to set teaching goals and evaluate teaching effectiveness. The program includes a set of tools that can be modified by each department to meet their needs.

Receiving criticism is an important and valuable skill. To achieve success in any endeavor we must be able to tolerate critical feedback and learn from it. However, receiving criticism is difficult for most people. Upon receiving criticism we feel vulnerable and become defensive and thereby miss opportunities to benefit from feedback. This workshop will help you explore why we become defensive, deliver tips for knowing when your “hot button” has been pushed and how to accept and integrate useful criticism. The training will also instruct though examples and/or role plays.
Goals and Target Audience:
• Identify emotions that get triggered when one is criticized • Describe how feedback can feel like an attack on your identity * Identify ways to respond effectively to criticism • Describe methods used to protect your ego • Identify ways to acknowledge that you heard the feedback • Describe the types of probing questions you can ask to reap benefits from the criticism

Date:
Wednesday, January 16th 2019
Start Time:
2:00 PM
Session Length:
50 minutes
Room:
LSC 308-10
Description:
Feedback is a gift, an opportunity to see things from outside of our own vantage point and grow beyond our current capacities. However, more often than not, when we receive critical feedback that identifies some of our own actions as harmful to others, we become defensive; we resist. This session, offered by members of the Feminist Fight Club for Men at CSU, explores common ways resistance impedes our ability to show up as effective supporters and allies for those who occupy marginalized identities. Utilizing the lens of Sexism and Gender-Based Oppression, examples will be provided to identify a range of responses rooted in resistance, while offering a model for more effectively operationalizing feedback to be and do better.
Goals and Target Audience:
Goals: 1) Familiarize participants with the 'Action Continuum' from Social Justice Education Theory. 2) Identify ways in which participants manifest 'destructive' behaviors. 3) Identify ways in which participants can move towards more 'constructive' behaviors. 4) Disseminate information on resources, including the FFC @ CSU and the FFC For Men, to aid in developing more constructive responses to being called on harmful behaviors.

Just when we had VeriCite all figured out, they were acquired by TurnItIn. (Clearly, we should have owned stock in VeriCite!) For that reason, CSU will pilot TurnItIn in spring 2019. And move completely to TurnItIn as our anti-plagiarism tool for summer 2019. The good news is the TurnItIn interface in Canvas is almost identical to VeriCite’s. And CSU papers that were submitted in VeriCite will be incorporated into TurnItIn. Come see how TurnItIn integrates with Canvas and learn more about our transition.
Goals and Target Audience:
Instructors and TA's who use the anti-plagiarism tool in Canvas.
