Save the Date, October 27, 3:30pm-6:00pm

Two weeks from today is the Fall Faculty Conference, “Enhancing Your Teaching”. Dr. Rose Bellanca will be the keynote speaker, followed by a line up of concurrent sessions that begin at 4:30, in the Great Lakes Center. Please RSVP.


Teaching Partners

Facilitators Emily Thompson (Biology), Theresa Dubiel (Nursing) and Susan Dentel (Biology) share their experiences regarding their on-going teaching partnership.

This is a fun-filled session guaranteed to make you laugh and smile!  Our supportive collaboration has given us new learning opportunities.  Through many emails, class visitations and a gathering with bagels and coffee, we have gained insight concerning: group work, student-centered learning activities and classroom management techniques.

We’ll tell y’all about it and how it might be beneficial for you to work with a teaching partner as well.


Powerful PowerPoint Presentations

Joyce Jenkins (Business Office Systems), facilitator

This session provides instructors with creative methods in the development of PowerPoint presentations for use in the classroom or online environment.  Highlights include broadcasting presentations over the Internet, embedding videos on or off the web, and engaging your students through the use of PowerPoint games.


Best Board-work Ever Workshop

Nagash Clarke (Chemistry) and Heidi Dodson (Chemistry), facilitators

Have you ever stepped back and looked at what you’ve written on the chalk or white board during class? Do you wonder if there are specific techniques you can use to help your students get more out of what you write on the board? Let’s talk about ways to better maximize board space and improve the techniques you use for board work.


Student Engagement During Lectures

Mary Mullalond (English), facilitator

Do you have students who appear engaged in lecture, but still have trouble remembering the more important material? Would you like your lectures to engage more students? Learn and share new strategies to support student learning (and keep them awake!). We’ll discuss ways to enhance your lectures using multi-media techniques, artifacts, critical thinking breaks, and more!


Classroom Management

Justin Teague (Behavioral Sciences), facilitator

This interactive session presents strategies and teaching skills for dealing with students in the classroom setting. We will discuss the importance of setting an appropriate tone and strategies for changing that tone when necessary. Skills will be examined such as how to verbally and nonverbally draw out, cut off, and redirect students.
