Collaborative Conversations

Starting Fall 2017, a group of "dialoguers" from across campus will meet to collectively explore how they understand specific issues related to gender and apply their perspective to their personal and professional lives. The dialogues featured in Collaborative Conversations do more than just highlight the “what” of diversity and inclusion - they also model the “how” of engaging in unscripted, open-ended dialogue to learn from and with one another across our differences. Each Collaborative Conversation features an hour of dialogue with opportunities for audience participation. Four panel participants will explore questions such as: What is it like for a person with a frame on the human spirit to engage with gender-related issues on campus? How might faith, belief, and spirituality inform gender equity on campus? What opportunities exist to develop shared practices for gender equity? This program is a collaborative effort with technical support from CSU Online and The Institute for Teaching & Learning.

Parenting with Social Justice in Mind

This session will include parenting experts who have it all figured out and never ever mess anything up. Just kidding. Let’s be real, being a parent/guardian/auntie/influencer-of-small-humans is hard-freakin-work. From the seemingly constant need to educate them about All. Of. The. Things. (seriously, why can’t they come pre-programed??), to the profound pressure to not only keep them alive but also grow them into the kind, compassionate and socially conscious adults needed to lead our movements. Even the most well-intentioned of us struggle for guidance when it comes to issues of privilege and oppression and most “parenting" books don't take identity into account while doling out advice. In this session we will NOT give advice. Rather, will explore some of the strategies that parents use while attempting to raise socially conscious humans. While this session isn't only for parents, it is intended for folks who: 1. have (or will have) some level of direct influence over small humans as parents/family/guardians/teachers/babysitters/etc. and 2. come to the session with a baseline understanding of identity, power and privilege. Please feel free to bring your lunch along to this session.

Holding Tension Between Shame and Pride: Fat Identity Development Theory

While much scientific literature focuses on the ideas of stigma, health effects, and societal beauty standards, there is little research that attempts to develop a social identity model for those who identify as bigger bodied. As body positive movements continue to gain momentum and the conversation becomes more mainstream, Student Affairs professionals need to be educated and prepared in order to adequately serve student populations. This thesis project utilizes personal interviews, disability and sexuality identity development theories, and queer theory to create a potential framework for fat identity development theory while synthesizing information from existing literature on how fatphobic culture also shapes identity development. Please feel free to bring your lunch along to this session.

A Strategy for Making Lectures More Interactive

Peer Instruction is a research-based, interactive teaching strategy that can easily be integrated into the large lecture or small group settings as a means of increasing student engagement and comprehension.

Adding 20% More Passion to Learning and Teaching:

Google found great success in incorporating 20% time into the work week, allowing employees 20% of their work time for collaboration and creativity. The concept of 20% time, sometimes referred to as Genius Hour, has exciting implications for the classroom as well. If you are looking to increase the passion for teaching and learning in your classroom, this presentation will offer some hands-on strategies you can adapt for your own use.
This seminar counts toward the requirements for the TILT Graduate Teaching Certificate.

Using Learning Objectives to Design your Course

Goals:
1. Find out why learning objectives are critical to effective learning outcomes.
2. Consider what to keep in mind when writing measurable objectives.
3. Walk away with a conceptual toolkit of how to write learning objectives.
4. Practice writing learning objectives.

Come prepared with two topics in a course you plan to teach and something to write or type on. We’ll start this workshop with a very brief overview of how and why to write learning objectives, then you’ll spend most of the hour writing learning objectives for your topics with help from your fellow instructors and a TILT instructional designer. You’ll leave with specific, measurable learning objectives written for your two topics and the tools to write more.

Target Audience: If you are curious about how to use learning objectives in your teaching, this workshop is for you. No experience with writing learning objectives necessary.
