Spring tRAINING eVENTS @ NYU

FAS Office of Educational Technology Partners in Learning: Engaging Students with Metacognitive Strategies with co-presenter Ryan Allen, Director of E-Learning, U of Dayton - Thursday, January 24, 2019, from 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm Online

Please join the FAS Office of Educational Technology for the webinar (link will be sent upon registration) discussion and demonstration of metacognitive strategies to engage students as partners in their own learning process. An unexpected result of implementing student-centered learning design can be that, even as student performance improves, student expressions of dissatisfaction or confusion increase as well. Usually, this happens because we’ve failed to explain the change in the learning context with students and they are uncertain about what is expected of them. Ryan Allen's contact info, his email is rallen1@udayton.edu

NYU Center for the Advancement of Teaching Making Learning Stick: Strategies for Effective Teaching and Learning Workshop Featuring Anton Borst and Robert DiYanni on Friday, February 2, 2019, from 9:30-11:30 am at the Center for the Advancement of Teaching Global Center for Academic and Spiritual Life, 238 Thompson Street, Room 461 

Featuring Liza Cariaga-Lo, Senior Advisor to the Provost for Academic Development, Diversity and Inclusion; and faculty member, Department of Education, Brown University

Click the title to register and learn more about Making Learning Stick. Working in a diverse academic community, faculty and instructors require critical knowledge, skills, and relevant tools and resources to be able to effectively engage with students from diverse backgrounds across the many intersectional identities that students—and teachers—bring to our learning, working and living environments. This session explored multi-dimensional considerations of effective approaches inside the classroom and beyond.  To register: https://nyu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3UJ7SwP8GrKuscZ  
Note: Breakfast will be offered beginning at 9:00 am. 

Wagner Teaching In Progress (TIP) - Thursday, February 7, 2019 at 11:45 am in the Lafayette conference room with Thom Blaylock

Click the title above to register, and learn more about the first case of the year. TIP is a place where we engage in peer learning to enhance our teaching -- in general and especially as it relates to issues of identity, diversity, and inclusion.  In each session, a faculty member brings a knotty question or experience (a mini-case) to the group.  We will dig in and see what we can all learn from the conversation (rather than simply giving advice to the faculty member).  In the past, case writers have brought difficult in-class or out-of-class interactions, questions about how to teach a particular race-related topic or design a syllabus, and the like.

We will be considering a case from a Capstone section that had some major dysfunction on a team soon after it formed.  Issues of race, gender, trust, and respect all threatened to cause a total team collapse.  Come have lunch and help us hash out this case and find out what happened. 

So that we have enough food, please RSVP here if you are coming. If you have trouble with the RSVP link, please let Harry Boadu (hb1024@nyu.edu) know you’ll be there.
