Building Collaborative Relationships through Co-Teaching

What do you do when the adjunct scheduled to teach a particular course is no longer available or interested in teaching the course? In most cases, the director must quickly locate another adjunct and prepare the person for teaching the course within a small window of time. Preparation to teach with such short notice can take many forms, both good and bad. In some cases, it may consist of a syllabus, books, class roster, and the location of the classroom. In other cases, it may be online training, mentoring, and a syllabus review.

The most important thing is to support the adjunct in the transition to teaching in higher education and to create a strong learning environment for the students. Co-teaching is a model that requires the adjunct to work side-by-side with an experienced faculty member while learning on the job. The faculty member serves as a mentor for the adjunct and is listed as the co-instructor in the actual course. It is experiential learning at its best.

Understanding Plagiarism in the Digital Age: Using Media Examples to Guide Students

In the context of academic research, plagiarism may often appear as an abstract concept to first-year composition students. When students struggle to understand the meaning of plagiarism, it damages their progress in elementary composition in several ways. First, it hinders students from fully understanding the research and publication process, as well as the need for expert opinions. Second, it keeps students from properly engaging in citing sources. And finally, it results in poor writing performance in first-year composition, which many students unfortunately already find difficult.

This project aimed to meet students in a place where they already receive and disseminate information. In order to facilitate greater understanding of what plagiarism is, as well as the ramifications, this project uses real-world examples of plagiarism in social media to bring familiarity to students. The presentation will explain the gap in understanding for first-year students, the examples used in a first-year class, and finally reveal the overall impact of the lesson. The study involved multiple courses in which a pre-assessment was given to test awareness of the concept. After the lesson, an additional assessment revealed successful outcomes. These results will also be discussed during the presentation.

Teaching as Performance

Rubrics. Learning Outcomes. Assessment. As educators, we have become accustomed to developing and documenting the mechanics of teaching. In so doing, have we lost sight of the art of teaching? How do we embrace the performative facets of our craft without sacrificing academic rigor? Moreover, how do we ensure the connection between content and craft so that students retain the material as well as our delivery of it? The creative, improvisational aspects of teaching need not be confined to the liberal arts: techniques and principles from performance-based disciplines can be applied to enhance teaching in any classroom.

Drawing on our previous research which focused on using humor in the classroom to increase student engagement and to mitigate professor burnout, Dr. Ann Glazer Niren and Dr. Rebekah Dement will demonstrate how good teaching may be considered a performance by offering strategies to provide balance between the competing demands of mechanics and art. Using scholarly research that emphasizes storytelling, class collaboration, movement, and improvisation in instruction, Drs. Niren and Dement will showcase role-playing and group discussion in this session as a means to demonstrate the value of performance in the college classroom: no previous performance experience required!

Leveraging the Practitioner Adjunct Professor to Infuse Equity and Inclusion Tools, Strategies, and Practices from a Large K-12 Urban School District: Instruction Pre-Service Teachers Towards Racial Educational Equity for all Students

Educating pre-service teachers, the practitioner adjunct professor is a key lever to tie theory to practice in the current K-12 context. This presentation focuses on strategies, tools and practices infused into teacher prep courses that provide a foundation for teaching through a lens of equity and inclusion. Leveraging the policy, practices, tools, and strategies of local school districts in which practitioner adjunct professors are employed, this session will explore how this method will empower preservice teachers, increase their employability, and contribute to building educator pipelines that are reflective of the needs of urban school districts.

As an employee of this country’s 29th largest urban school district, Jefferson County Public Schools has embarked on our District Commitment to Racial Educational Equity Policy (09.131) for all students and created plans across five tenets: (1) Diversity in curriculum, instruction & assessment; (2) School culture & climate; (3) Programmatic access; (4) Staffing & classroom diversity; and (5) Central office commitment to racial educational equity. Intentionality in sharing this information and utilizing tools and strategies to support implementation of equity and inclusion practices in concert with outlined course requirements of schools of education amplifies the potential impact of teachers to increase student achievement outcomes for all students.

Ivy Tech Community College's Learn Anywhere Program

This presentation will begin with a brief simulation of a first-year college student beginning a fast-paced college course, in the style of Ivy Tech’s Learn Anywhere Program. The audience members will act as the beginning college students, with no real context of the short lesson at hand, simulating the “first day” of class. A short reflection will follow in the form of a poll and follow-up discussion of the poll’s results, focused on how the audience members felt under those learning circumstances.

Then, an informational segment of Ivy Tech Community College’s Learn Anywhere Program will take place, followed by perceptions of both Ivy Tech students and faculty, including both presenters’ experiences co-teaching an 8-week, co-requisite, Learn Anywhere, English composition course from August to October of 2021. This session will end with open discussion, as well as Q&A’s.

Teaming Up to Create a Shared Canvas Shell with New Technology

What are the advantages and disadvantages of new quizzes in Canvas, the new glass board ILTE studio, and other new teaching technology? Nicolas Overgaard and Mildred Vernia will present their journey with new teaching technologies. See how one adjunct math lecturer has teamed up with a full-time faculty member to employ certain technologies in the creation of a shared Canvas course shell. Participate in a brainstorming session about how these resources could benefit your classes.

The Power of Play: Nature-Based Education in Play-Based Learning

Wonder. Excitement. Surprise. Joy. Love. These universal human experiences contribute to a fuller life on their own, but there is evidence that they also provide an impetus to deeper learning in the field of environmentalism. Combining classic environmental studies commentary from Aldo Leopold and Rachel Carson, with theories of play-based education, and direct observations from my own senior-level environmental ethics course at Bellarmine University, this presentation will seek to advocate for fostering a "sense of wonder" in undergraduate students.

The New Way to Design College Courses with Real Application in Mind

Using the instructional design framework, in this interactive workshop, participants will use bloom's taxonomy to maintain the academic structure of any courses, while exploring new ways to a) sequence the required materials and b) enhance the traditional activities with methods that help students extrapolate any knowledge into the field of work. We will explore innovative assignments with everyday use platforms like YouTube. Inject gamification concepts in traditional quizzes or tests and discuss activities to help students implement or practice concepts as they would in the work environment.
