Supporting Inclusive Group Dynamics: Beyond the Group Contract

When: April 5, 2019 from 10-11 AM

Where: Theatre Hall 316, UW-Green Bay Campus

Facilitators: Dr. Caroline Boswell, Director of the Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning; Associate Professor of Humanities and History; and Dr. Kate Burns, Associate Dean of the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences; Associate Professor of Human Development, Psychology, and Women’s and Gender Study. 

While collaborative and group-based learning is on the rise, students are often unaware of the stereotypes and biases that inform group dynamics, student learning, and work productivity. Drawing on recent research on equitable team dynamics, this workshop will allow us to discuss how instructors may use equity-based methods to support the creation of group procedures and dynamics that work to minimize stereotyping and bias.

HIPs @ 10 Reading Series: URSCA

Join us for our third High-Impact Practices @ 10 reading series discussion on February 18, 2019 from 3:00-4:30 PM in MAC Hall 201 or virtually via Blackboard Collaborate Ultra!

The Association of American Colleges and Universities High-Impact Practices turn “10” this year! In honor of that milestone, and an initiative sponsored by UW System and the National Association of System Heads, we’ll highlight readings about Civic Engagement, Undergraduate Student Research and more with the help of the NASH Grant Leadership team.

Ryan Martin will lead a discussion on two chapters from Nancy H. Hensel edited collection, Course-Based Undergraduate Research: Educational Equity and High-Impact Practice.

HIPs @ 10, Nov. 7 from 10-11 CL 204 H

Peter Levine (Assoc Dean of Citizenship and Public Affairs, Tufts University) argues that the answer to the fractiousness of our society and the breakdown of civil society lies with greater civic engagement. We’ll be discussing his book We are the ones we have been waiting for, which considers both the values that we need to re-invigorate our society as well as strategies to strengthen participatory democracy through greater civic engagement.
