Wondering about how to bring out the best in your students in a variety of learning scenarios? Struggling with how to keep students motivated in distance environments? Join Tawyna Cary and Caroline Jakuba Wienhold from WISSCIENCE (Wisconsin Institute for Science Education & Community Engagement) as they share an overview of Hope, Grit and Social Belonging situated within a growth mindset. Heather Shimon from the College of Engineering will share affective teaching strategies designed to engage students online and strengthen community. Professor Beth Fahlberg from the School of Nursing will share new and innovative approaches designed to strengthen clinical and community-based learning environments.
In this session, participants will have time to consider how affective classroom strategies translate to a distance learning environment, and come away with new approaches to building community and fostering a growth mindset.
For more on Hope and Grit, here is Angela Lee Duckworth's TED talk posted on Youtube.

Wondering how Collaborate can be useful in your course? Whether you are teaching in a traditional face to face classroom, blended learning, or online, Collaborate may be a useful tool for you. Join us on Feb. 27 from 2:30-4 in the Middleton Building rm. 302 to hear from your faculty colleagues how they use Collaborate as a solution to some of their needs.
We will hear from Alan Carroll in the Dept. of Geoscience, Jennifer Gipson in the Dept. of French and Italian, and David Feldstein in the Department of Medicine as well as stories of others who have used Collaborate to address some pedagogical issues they faced. This session will focus on the problem instructors needed to solve, how they have used it, how they and their students feel about it, and what is working well and what they would like to change. There will be time for you to ask your questions and for participants to share experiences and concerns they have with the use of this tool.
