Academic Integrity Live Panel & Workshop

Join Bill Dirienzo, Mark Olkowski, Nichole LaGrow, and the rest of the CATL team for a virtual panel discussion around academic integrity at UW-Green Bay on Nov. 13 from 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.  

Prior to the meeting, resources and recent research will be made available on the CATL blog so that we begin our discussion with a shared vocabulary of the issues students, instructors, and staff face with regards to academic dishonesty and the policies our institution already has in place. 

We’ll follow the panel discussion with some suggestions for fostering a culture of academic integrity, using campus supported technologies to start a dialogue with students about authentic work, and provide some examples of authentic assessments to support instructors as they build out endofsemester exams and assessments.

The Fall Showcase (October 2020)

Have you ever put in a ton of work to overhaul a class? How about committee work to assess a program? This work is often thankless and goes unnoticed. The Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning and the Provosts’ Office seek to change that with an event specifically designed to spotlight this important work. The Fall Showcase will bring together bring (asynchronously) some of our most creative minds and highlight their work at investigating the effectiveness of teaching and learning strategies.

What

The fall showcase will be a virtual poster session. Presenters will submit a virtual poster (on a PowerPoint template provided by the Center) along with a short description of their work. This description will stand-in for the “spiel” that one might give in a live poster session in a face-to-face event.

Attendees and presenters will be able to interact through VoiceThread.

In this way we hope to simulate the give-and-take of a live poster session.

Examples

Examples of submissions may include UW-Green Bay Teaching Scholars projects, UW Teaching Fellows and Scholars projects, scholarly teaching efforts, or creative attempts at changing assignments to deal with pandemic circumstances.

Timeline

Since this is a multi-stage event, there are multiple deadlines:

  • Deadline to apply for presenters: Sep. 25
    • CATL will notify presenters by Oct. 2 and include presentation kit (template and guidelines for talking points, etc.)
  • Deadline to submit presentation: Oct. 16
    • The Center will prepare the online gallery of presentations
  • Open comment period for attendees: Oct. 20–Oct. 23

Who

Individuals or groups who have engaged in educational research, scholarship of teaching and learning, scholarly teaching, or innovative assessment practices.

Fall Training Opportunity: Pivotal Pedagogy

Managing chaos is better when you have friends. The CATL staff always has your back, but we also have a fall cohort training for those who missed out on the ones this summer. The fall cohort is open to those who were unable to engage in a CATL advanced training, but yet are trying to translate their courses to new formats and build community with their students in new environments (online, hybrid, blended). It will also help you be ready should there be another pivot to remote instruction.  

Rather than struggling alone, the cohort allows you to draw upon the wisdom of your colleagues. Participants in the cohort will earn a stipend for building an equivalent learning experience – what we call “full course citizenship”—for all your students in all the environments you are being asked to teach.

Participants in this cohort will earn a $500 stipend. The cohort will run Sep. 18–Nov. 1. While there is some flexibility, we encourage those who would like to participate to register by Oct. 1
