  • Chakra Workshop: Anahata - Finding the Heart

    Date: Friday, December 10th, 2021 | 10:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Facilitator: Michele DiPietro Academia traditionally centers thoughts and reason, but there is a new movement to find the heart in higher education (Palmer and Zajonc 2010). What does it mean to do our work with love as well as will, and with a balance between head and heart? In fact, the heart chakra is the one in the center of the system, and as such is the one dedicated to balance—between teaching and research, giving and receiving, work and life, and so on. In this workshop we will unpack the mechanics of the heart chakra and generate strategies for a professional life where heart and mind are reunited.  –  December 10, 2021

    Date: Thursday, December 9th, 2021 | 9:30 - 10:45 a.m. Facilitators: Hillary Steiner and Angela Bain In the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, students are our “human subjects”; thus, SoTL studies, while often classified as Exempt from Continuing Review, require oversight of the Institutional Review Board. However, the close relationship of researcher and participants in SoTL studies necessitates special consideration. Join us for a webinar co-facilitated by CETL and the Office of Research to discuss ethical and procedural guidelines for building a SoTL IRB proposal.  –  December 09, 2021

  • For Faculty: Preparing Your Annual Review Submission

    Date: Wednesday, December 8th, 2021 | 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Facilitator: Michele DiPietro The Annual Review Document and Faculty Performance Agreement can be laborious and time intensive to create, depending on departmental guidelines. While this is a required process, it can also be an opportunity to think strategically about what we have accomplished in the past year and what our goals are for the next year – and about the story we want to tell. In this workshop we will explore strategies for documenting your effectiveness in the Teaching, Research, and Service areas; demonstrating progress toward your mutually agreed goals; laying the foundations for your next multilevel review, and situating yourself in an optimal position for negotiations with your chair.  –  December 08, 2021

  • Book Chat: The Rise: Creativity, the Gift of Failure, and the Search for Mastery

    Date: Tuesday, December 7th, 2021 | 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Facilitator: Este Jordan Faculty are among the 1% most educated people. We constantly pursue mastery, but many of us never feel like we achieve it. We have accomplished so much yet have so much left undone. We are not alone in this. From the most acclaimed artists to the most decorated athletes, the pursuit of mastery feels ever elusive. We can learn much from them in order to better understand our own struggles with self doubt, perfectionism, overachievement, and the relentless pursuit of mastery. Join us for a book chat about Sarah Lewis' The Rise: Creativity, the Gift of Failure, and the Search for Mastery. Dr. Lewis provides a perspective that many faculty have found valuable as they seek to thrive among the elite of the academy.  –  December 07, 2021

  • Faculty Mindset and Student Success

    Date: Friday, November 19th, 2021 | 12:20 p.m. - 1:10 p.m. Facilitator: Mandy McGrew Since the publication of her book, Mindset: The New Psychology of Success in 2006, Carol Dweck’s theory of growth mindset has encouraged a generation of students to see failures as opportunities to learn and challenges as opportunities to develop new skills. But how do our mindsets as educators influence how we approach teaching our students? How do our attitudes about student learning impact our own students’ learning? In this interactive session, participants will review some of the research on mindsets, consider some new perspectives on these theories, and reflect on how our own mindsets about student learning may be helping or hindering student learning in our classes.  –  November 19, 2021
