The Effective, Efficient Professor @ EIU
 
This presentation is for both new faculty or those who might feel stuck in a rut. Phillip Wankat’s ideas within The Effective, Efficient Professor: Teaching, Scholarship and Service are presented through EIU’s unique combination of teaching, research, and service. The presentation contains two major features to build momentum for increased productivity. First, efficiency. Hear one professor’s approach to be more efficient by intertwining teaching, research, and service! Second, effectiveness. Hear one professor’s approach for getting internal funds to support your teaching, research, and service in order to be more effective! Working smarter, not necessarily harder, will help ensure you have time to do the things you have to do, want to do, and hope to do. More

Communication Across the Curriculum: Toward More Effective Evaluations of Student Writing
 
Our evaluations of student writing have the potential to foster deep learning, but many of us find this task overwhelming and, at times, ineffective. (The term "evaluation" encompasses writing substantive feedback on students' drafts and final papers, marking or editing errors, assigning grades, and/or speaking with students about their writing.) In this workshop, Terri Fredrick will discuss a philosophy and practices of evaluation that are designed to help teachers evaluate students' writing more productively and efficiently. The focus will be on increasing the learning that occurs through evaluation, while honoring our own time as busy professionals with many obligations. This workshop is the first in a three-part series: Communication Across the Curriculum. Participants who complete all three workshops will receive a badge indicating their achievement. More

Faculty Learning Community - Engaged Reading Group
 
This Faculty Learning Community (FLC) will focus on a critical reading of "Relationship-Rich Education" by Peter Felton and Leo M. Lambert.

This powerful book can challenge us to consider the power of relationships in our classes, departments, colleges, and the university. Working together, we can look for opportunities and develop strategies, and at the final session, consider whether these may be sustainable in our roles across campus.


We will consider questions such as:
• What might be the root of inequitable student engagement and outcomes?
• What practices at EIU nurture meaningful interactions?
• What do we already do in our classes to encourage purposeful interactions?
• What is one concrete idea we could act on now to make the education of our students more relationship-rich?


Note the dates - we will meet to discuss the book in February and March, and reconnect in April to discuss any changes we have made or could make in our roles on campus.


Enrollment includes a free copy of the book compliments of the FDIC as well as warm beverages, snacks, & good conversation.


Limited to 12 participants

So You Have a Student with Accommodations...or Not!
 
Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is an approach to teaching and learning to ensure that all learners can access and participate in meaningful, challenging learning opportunities. Often, instructors are asked to make important accommodations for students with exceptionalities such as captioning videos or using alternative text for images in online course designs. However, these efforts are not just for students with accommodations, they are principles that impact and enhance outcomes for ALL learners across course modalities. Dr. April Jackson, the Director of Student Disability Services at EIU will facilitate this webinar on the basics of UDL and how instructors can incorporate these principles for all students. A Zoom webinar link will be sent in the confirmation email after registration. The webinar will be recorded and posted on the FDIC website. More
