Helping Students Identify and Leverage their Strengths

Date/time: 
Thursday, June 29, 2017 - 11:45am to 1:15pm
Location: 
215 Snell Library
Type: 
workshop
Identifying and understanding our strengths can help us to find clarity on what’s important to us, build confidence, and move in the direction of reaching our full potential. The “Values in Action” (VIA) Character Strengths inventory is a research-driven taxonomy of individual strengths substantiated by the American Psychological Association, and is accessible through a free, online tool. During this workshop, we will explore the VIA character strength inventory, and its use in the career development and Co-op search process. Participants will take the VIA Character Strengths assessment and discuss practical ways the language of strengths can be integrated into our students’ Co-op experience and lifelong learning. Lunch will be provided.

Team-Based Learning: Group Work That Works

Date/time: 
Friday, July 7, 2017 - 10:00am to 11:30pm
Location: 
215 Snell Library
Type: 
workshop
Team-Based Learning is an evidence-based instructional strategy that is enjoying widespread adoption across disciplines and solves many problems associated with other forms of “group work.”  The approach provides a structured and high-energy format in which students can learn foundational masteries like communication, critical thinking, and decision-making, while still focusing on course material. In this workshop, we will learn about TBL by experiencing it, exploring the structural flaw in most traditional forms of group work and the four practical elements that make TBL so powerfully-effective.  Participants will come away with what they need to design high-quality group activities for their courses.

Our goal as educators is to equip students with knowledge that they can make use of beyond our classrooms.  This requires students to learn material in flexible and adaptive ways.  While research shows that such intellectual agility is very difficult to cultivate, mindfulness practices—activities that focus one's attention on in-the-moment experience—are associated with a host of related outcomes ranging from increased attention to enhanced creativity. Participants in this workshop will consider the rapidly-expanding body of research into mindfulness practices relevant to the learning sciences and discuss ways to adapt these practices to fit with our course content and disciplinary ways of thinking and learning.
