This year’s Institute (to be held January 18, 2018) coincides with UW-Green Bay’s “Becoming a Student-Ready University” initiative, sponsored by the Office of the Provost and Business and Finance. The morning will kick-off with a special keynote by Dr. Christine Harrington, who will speak to our entire campus community about how small actions can have a big impact on student achievement. She will ask us to consider how student experiences in and out of the classroom make a huge difference in terms of persistence and goal completion, and she will follow-up by encouraging us to discuss the small actions that staff, faculty, and administrators can take to help students meet with success.
Sessions include workshops on Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity, Transparency in Teaching and Learning, Peer Review, the Flipped Classroom, Information Literacy, Contemplative Pedagogy, Student Success, and more. Registration is open until January 10th, but, why wait! Space is limited.
2017’s institute focused on a range of issues in higher ed. The institute was made up of four sessions, each of which allowed guests to pick from three workshops. See the schedule here for more detailed session information. Contact CATL to follow-up or learn more about any of the topics covered.
UW-Green Bay faculty and staff showcased their talents at the faculty development institute on January 19th. Workshops ranged from how to navigate the changing landscape of academic freedom to how to write grants to how to develop cultural competency in the classroom. While the workshops varied greatly in their subject matter, there were two elements common to all presentations. The first is that they all gave participants ideas and practices to use in their work. The second is that UW-Green Bay has a remarkable collection of workers who are a truly valuable resource for each other. From the perspective of the Center, the key takeaway from the day was that we felt fortunate to have provided a platform where over ninety UWGB community members – plus colleagues from elsewhere – could share in each other’s strengths. Be on the lookout for reading groups and workshops this Spring that seek to continue the Center’s mission to bring UWGB together to enhance teaching and learning.
