Faculty proposers: Nancy Bacharach (Teacher Development), and Teresa Heck (Kinesiology)
Co-teaching is a powerful framework that provides new opportunities for enhancing student learning. This FLC will explore the many ways the concept of co-teaching can be utilized in not only the delivery of instruction, but in assignments and coursework.
Faculty proposers: Jeanne Anderson (Information Media) and Stephanie Houdek (Math Skills Center)
In this FLC faculty members will explore how we can turn the classroom on its head by delivering instruction online outside of class so that active learning, group collaboration, instructor feedback/support and homework can be addressed during class time.
Faculty proposer: Kate Pound (Earth and Atmospheric Sciences)
Briefly, Backward Design is a process in curriculum and lesson planning starts not by preparing lectures (i.e. learning experiences), but first by identifying the desired results. After that, the educator determines what acceptable evidence for those results having been achieved is, and only then plans the learning experiences and instruction to meet the goals.
Faculty proposer: Nate Winter (Chemistry and Physics)
The overarching purpose of this FLC is to explore and examine the current research and thinking of the pedagogy of laboratory experiences with a view to incorporating some of the strategies into the courses taught by the members.
Faculty proposer: Miguel Chavez (Ethnic and Women's Studies)
The purpose of this FLC is to increase student engagement by redesigning courses to embed structured Collaborative Learning strategies that take into account scholarship on the relationship between group dynamics and student learning and create and redesign their courses.
Facilitator: Rachel Wexelbaum (Library Resources Services)
The members of this FLC are SCSU faculty, instructional staff, and other SCSU community members engaged in research on and teaching of LGBTIQ populations and issues. The purpose of this FLC is to explore theories and practices of heteronormativity in the attempt to identify heteronormative practices at SCSU. In 2013-2013, the LGBTIQ FLC will continue and expand upon our work from the previous year. We intend to conduct focus groups and other activities to determine student, faculty, and staff perceptions of heteronormativity in order to develop best practices and exercises to improve campus climate.
