With permission from The Association for Contemplative Mind in Higher Education (ACMHE), Katya Stewart-Sweeney and Toni-Lee Viney, will share a webinar by Beck Tench, "Restoring Our Attention" and facilitate a discussion after the viewing. Through her webinar, Beck Tench invites us to develop skills and a greater capacity for accessing personal wisdom; connect with others through compassion and friendship, improve the quality of our lives through awareness of life as we’re living it, and mitigate or minimize the harms of attention-driven digital culture. At a time of pandemic and civil unrest, many of us are glued to our devices, doom-scrolling with anticipation for the worst to come. How do we use technology wisely? In this webinar, she shares a look at the market forces that incentivize technology to distract and manipulate us. We’ll consider the consequences of chronic distraction across individuals and society as a whole. And then we’ll look to attention restoration theory (ART) for ideas about what to do differently. (excerpted from http://www.contemplativemind.org/archives/6040). Katya Stewart-Sweeney serves as Graduate and International Student Advisor for Electrical and Computer Engineering, and has been with CSU since 2002. She has served on CSU’s Center for Mindfulness Leadership Team for the last five years. Toni-Lee Viney serves as the Manager for Undergraduate Programs in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, and has been a part of CSU since 2006. She has taught yoga for nine years and is pursuing additional training on yoga therapeutics.

Description:
Testing or quizzing oneself is an extremely reliable way to strengthen memory, increase one’s ability to recall information, and identify gaps in knowledge. To get students to utilize these beneficial practice methods, faculty have created low-stakes quizzes and encourage students to test their ability to recall critical information. Despite these intentions, we have found that faculty do not have access to data on how students use the quizzes they have developed. This lack of information makes it difficult for faculty to respond to less than desirable behaviors and encourage “best practice” behaviors. A team within the Center for the Analytics of Learning and Teaching (C-ALT) has developed a process called U-Behavior™ to help faculty and students explore quizzing behaviors and to experiment with a teaching method that has a positive effect on student behaviors. This presentation provides an update on the U-Behavior learning and teaching method, the U-Behavior graphing tool, an automated tool within Canvas, and describes ongoing plans for expanding its use. We also present the initial findings from our fall semester experiment within two large undergraduate courses at CSU.
Goals and Target Audience:
Goals: 1. Discuss the benefits of using U-Behavior and retrieval practice activities as a teaching method. 2. Describe the current status of the U-Behavior LTI tool in Canvas, 3. Present initial research findings from two larger undergraduate classrooms. Target audience: Faculty and staff interested in boosting learning based on the science of learning.

Description:
In Spring 2020, all of us experienced a hard shift from working face-to-face to working online. In our Bus300: Business Writing and Communication class, we needed to change a Team Project with multiple components that lasted over 6 weeks from an in-person experience to a virtual one. In addition, the content of the Team Project has always addressed real-world communication challenges, which meant that we could transform the content of our assignment to ask students the very questions we were struggling with ourselves: what's the best way to communicate in our remote environment? how would a business choose which virtual platforms to use? what communication challenges are businesses facing at this moment? Our session shares both the ways in which we changed our assignment content to match the changes in the real world and how we changed the practical deployment of the Team Project to accommodate our new circumstances.
Goals and Target Audience:
Goals: share how face-to-face Team Projects can be adapted for remote environments and how assignment content can reflect real-world circumstances Targeted Audience: other instructors who are still exploring strategies for working with groups and/or want to make assignments more practical for students

Description:
On the first day of class, students arrive with the same questions: Will this professor be “good” (engaging, approachable, organized)? Will this course be stimulating? Can I see myself succeeding in this course? For instructors, these questions mean that the first day of class offers a unique opportunity that will not come again as students get busier and the workload heavier. In this workshop, we will discuss ways to answer the above questions in a positive, even inspiring way. We can be highly intentional about capturing student interest, building community, priming students to be willing to participate in active learning, and laying out the pathway for success. For better or worse, first day impressions and early practices set a tone that impacts the whole course. This workshop represents one piece of the highly successful CSU student success initiative known as the First Four Weeks.
Goals and Target Audience:
TARGETED AUDIENCE: -faculty and GTAs GOALS: -Acquire tools and perspectives to optimize the first day of class in your course -Plan strategies to launch course community and clarify expectations right from the beginning -Start the conversation with students about how people learn and why active learning is beneficial to them

Description:
As we reflect on and engage in the work of making our teaching practices more inclusive, we must consider the role our written responses to students’ work plays in “deliberately cultivating a learning environment where all students are treated equitably, have equitable access to learning, and feel valued and supported in their learning.” In this session, we will discuss and practice concrete strategies for fostering equity through our written comments. For example, how might we comment on essays that make racist, sexist, or classist claims? How might we prevent ourselves from letting our own biases and orthodoxies cloud our ability to offer thoughtful, instructive comments on students’ writing? How might the issues we ask our students to write about affect students’ abilities to satisfy the expectations of the assignment? We will consider, as well, how we might foster more inclusive commenting during peer review sessions. How might we better prepare students to read and comment on their peers’ writing in a more inclusive manner?
Goals and Target Audience:
The primary audience for this session is faculty and graduate students across the curriculum who want to think critically about their commenting styles and consider concrete ways to make their written feedback to students part of their inclusive teaching practices.

Description:
Join an experiential educator with over 10 years of facilitation experience working among emerging adults and adult learners in individual and team settings. They have led hundreds of creative, inclusive, playful, nourishing, and developmental activities, trainings, and meetings, both in-person and virtually, and are eager to share with you some of their best community building practices. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn by doing, playing, reflecting, absorbing, and conversing with others in mindful, uplifting, and transformative ways. This session is designed to present an intentional teambuilding sequence that can be replicated from beginning-to-end or could be divided up and integrated into new hire trainings, one-on-one interactions, weekly staff meetings, academic classes, and even virtual happy hour fun amongst family and friends! The versatility and practicality of the delivery methods, learning technologies, and gamification practices shared will allow attendees to pick and choose what best suits their community’s needs and their own. Ultimately, attendees will leave with some new resources to upgrade their virtual playbook in hopes to create more purposeful and joyful moments for Rams to feel more connected with each other in a time we could all use it.
Goals and Target Audience:
All are welcome! This session is introvert-friendly and is crafted to be accessible in a variety of ways.
