October Events

October 7th: Community Engagement in STEM Courses
11:30 AM – 12:45 PM, on zoom
This workshop will explore integration of project-based community partnerships into STEM courses. Facilitators will discuss case studies including both recent pilots and long-running projects in Keck Science courses. The workshop will highlight institutional resources to support community engagement work, and help faculty envision such projects in their own courses. This workshop is geared toward anyone curious about incorporating community engagement work into their STEM courses.

October 12th: Troubleshooting Revisited
10 – 11 AM, on zoom
This workshop is a follow-up to our September “Troubleshooting the Return to In-Person Learning” workshop, but you don’t need to have attended last time to benefit! Come ask questions, get advice, and learn from one another in a supportive environment. RSVP:  https://forms.gle/4wq7mk8KM6XGZiEW7

October 20th (on zoom) and 21st (in person): Realistic Excellence
10 AM – 11 AM
What does “excellence in teaching” mean, and what does it look like in these challenging circumstances?  How do contingency, age, race, and / or gender impact perceptions of teaching excellence? This workshop will help faculty identify their teaching strengths, set and communicate realistic expectations for their teaching, and use available tools in ways that convey their definition of teaching success to a variety of audiences. While all faculty are welcomed, we especially encourage contingent / visiting, untenured, and historically underrepresented faculty to participate. These workshops will not be recorded.  RSVP: https://forms.gle/ksX97rHUMj6h8Nde9

Previous Events: August and September

Trauma-Informed Teaching

As we and our students return from a period of remote education that was marked by loss, racism, abelism, isolation, and more, trauma-informed pedagogy offers us a lens to recognize the systems that have harmed teachers and learners, and the changes that are necessary so all of us can succeed and thrive. This hour-long workshop will introduce participants to equity-centered, trauma-informed practices that can be easily integrated into your teaching this fall to the benefit of all..

Troubleshooting Return-to-Campus Teaching  In this workshop, we invite you to bring your experiences, frustrations, and revelations about the first month of back-on-campus teaching to share. We will use the time together to learn from each other and think creatively and strategically about this (once again) unfamiliar teaching environment.
