Practicum (Note: All other courses must be completed prior to enrollment in this course)
To successfully complete the program, the staff member must:
Recent in the fields of andragogy (the method and practice of teaching adult learners) and metacognition (understanding of one’s own thought processes) lend insight into the efficacy of various classroom techniques. In this workshop, we explore various strategies that you and your students can use to see remarkable learning gains.
This workshop will offer participants specific suggestions for engaging and managing younger students. The facilitator will show examples of what he/she uses in business classes to encourage engagement and participation and relate concepts to students.
The basic philosophy of Constructivist Learning- to encourage students to actively participate in their own learning-will be introduced. Participants will study examples from different disciplines that encourage active participation by students.
Know your subject, but having trouble making your presentations interesting and rich? Learn how to increase the subject-matter retention and confidence of your students with this simple, interactive teaching technique. The class is taught using the same techniques you will want to develop. You will learn to energize and enthuse your students without having to rewrite your lesson plans.
AAC&U now refers to portfolios as the 11th high impact practice. This workshop explores the benefits of ePortfolios for students to communicate and showcase skills, experiences and learn. Participants will create their own ePortfolios in Taskstream, a tool available for all faculty, during this workshop and gain practical skills to use portfolios in their own classrooms.
Encouraging students to actively participate in their learning opportunities yields positive results. During this workshop, participants will learn how to build activities based upon mastery learning theory that encourage this participation.
Learn to use new online tools to enhance your presence in the classroom (face-to-face and online) and how to create and implement an escape game in your classroom with a simple kit from your campus Library and Learning Commons.
This workshop will share creative teaching techniques designed to motivate students to accelerate self-knowledge, explore learning styles, recognize emotional obstacles and stay focused.
In this workshop, we will explore the literature around students'research habits. Participants will be introduced to how strategies can be used in the classroom to improve students' research abilities. You will also experience planning a lesson to improve research practices in their discipline.
Course description forthcoming
In this workshop, the facilitator will make connections to social justice in the context of highlighting service learning theory and practice. Participants will explore principles, pedagogy and strategies for integrating service learning in courses, while exploring actual community service organizations and upcoming service events at FSCJ in which to directly get involved
In this training, participants will learn about research-based strategies for fostering students' cognitive, affective and social development. Participants will have an opportunity to engage in dialogue about strategies for creating learning experiences and a learning environment that fosters student development.
This workshop will review the theory and practice of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and how it can be applied in your work with students. The three principles of UDL include providing multiple means of representation (the "what" of learning), multiple means of action and expression (the "how" of learning), and multiple means of engagement (the "why" of learning) will be reviewed. Whether you reach online, hybrid or face-to-face, this training will provide resources to make educational materials accessible and engaging for all.
By designing and creating written, graphic, digital and 3-D versions of course content, learners actively organize, synthesize and apply subject matter while improving retention and their ability to retrieve knowledge. Examples will be modeled accompanied by a discussion of the benefits of creative and sensory learning.
The Writing in the Disciplines workshop includes an introduction to the research that supports the Writing in the Disciplines approach and "writing to learn," the role of low stakes writing, developing appropriate writing assignments and responding to student writing especially in the context of a STEM classroom. Each workshop participant will leave with a plan for developing a writing assignment that provides students with writing practice and with the tools to provide constructive feedback.
