Conference Keynote Speaker: Dr. Gail Rice

Gail Rice

Pausing Teaching for Learning

Do we sometimes get in the way of our students' learning? Dr. Gail Rice, director of faculty development at Loma Linda University, will share with us the latest cognitive science findings that show how to step aside and facilitate transformational learning. In this interactive session, experience 10 "educational pauses" that we can use in our teaching to ensure that students leave our classrooms having actually learned from our teaching.

Dr. Rice directs Faculty Development at Loma Linda University and is a Professor in the School of Allied Health Professions. She is a faculty member for the Harvard Macy Institute Program for Education in the Health Professions and for the USC Keck School of Medicine’s Innovation in Medical Education Conference. She has held professorial positions at four universities in seven schools or departments and has graduate degrees in nursing, public health education, educational psychology and higher education administration and leadership. She serves on several editorial boards for professional journals and boards for professional societies. Dr. Rice developed expertise in testing through her service on the governing board of the National Commission for Health Education Credentialing, Inc., where her committee developed and oversaw the administration of the Certified Health Education Specialist exams over a five-year period. Gail and her husband have two children.


Pre-Conference Workshop Speaker: Dr. Mitchell Colver

Mitchell Colver

Using an Autonomy-Supportive Approach to Curriculum & Instruction

This pre-conference workshop will expose attendees to principles that demonstrate how an autonomy-supportive approach to pedagogy pays dividends for students and instructors alike. Grounded in more than four decades of research (self-determination theory), autonomy-supportive techniques empower students to dynamically engage a rich classroom ecology designed to facilitate discovery, learning, and reflection. Relying on core principles of educational psychology and subject-centered sociocultural theory, attendees will leave with a toolkit of transformative educational practices to apply according to their own strengths and interests.

Dr. Mitchell Colver manages the data science team in Utah State University’s Office of Student Analytics, where student success is fostered through empowerment of increased data literacy amongst faculty, staff, and administrators. Dr. Colver and his team believe that human capital, when activated and catalyzed by big data, is the most powerful tool that 21st century institutions have in their arsenal to sustain institutional effectiveness. Dr. Colver has degrees in Psychology, Music, and Experimental Research, as well as a PhD emphasizing research in Higher Education. His research has appeared in Popular Science, Slate, Smithsonian, New York Magazine, and, internationally, on Radio BBC. He maintains an honorary appointment as a visiting scholar at London South Bank University, where he conducts research about institutional effectiveness in the UK. His prominence in the field of education has allowed him to serve as an analytics and change-management consultant for universities across the nation and globe. Mitchell is the father of six children and married to a woman whose support makes his professional pursuits possible and meaningful.


Plenary Speaker: Dr. Mark Damen

Mark Damen

Refresh & Reinforce Learning in the Classroom

Studying Latin and the ancient world since eighth grade, Dr. Mark Damen came to realize that English is best understood from the outside looking in. After all, how can you grasp the concept of color if you see only red? Likewise, the best way to know your own teaching is by comparing it to others, and finding ways to adapt the teaching practice observed in others to your own classroom. Mark’s love of stage performing and his equal passion of teaching combine to make him a dynamic and effective teacher. Whether his students are face-to-face or online, he continually strives to refresh and reinforce learning.

Dr. Mark Damen completed his BA in Latin at the University of Florida and his MA and PhD at the University of Texas at Austin where he focused his work on ancient comedy, the subject of most of his publications. Following his wife Fran Titchener who joined Utah State in 1987, he has taught classes on a wide range of subjects, including ancient history, myth and drama, classical literature, language and etymology, and even playwriting. In 1998 he was Utah’s CASE Professor of the Year.

Refresh and Reinforce Learning in the Classroom

Dr. Mark Damen
Professor, Utah State University

  • Access. How can we eliminate or reduce barriers to higher education for our students while, at the same time, enhancing the student learning experience? (Barriers may include cost, time, place, policy, mindset, and culture.) How can we create challenging and welcoming learning environments for all students? How can we draw upon our differences and cultural strengths to maximize student contributions to the curriculum?
  • Pedagogy.  How does your research or approach to teaching support the student learning journey? Have you piloted and evaluated a new approach that you can share with others? Have you developed a praxis to support your teaching practice? How does this interplay between theory and practice support the learning journey? Throughout your experiences in engaging learners, what have you discovered along the way?
  • Evidence of Learning.  How have you addressed assessment of (and for) student learning in your teaching practice? What innovative ways are you using assessment to understand the effectiveness of teaching and learning, programs, and institutional goals? How have you improved your approach to assessing students’ learning, and to providing them with feedback on their performance, so they can develop metacognitive skills, resilience, and an ability to self-regulate?
  • Student Success.  How have you addressed student retention and persistence through your course design, program curriculum, or teaching practice? What strategies support the first year experience? How do you help students develop a growth mindset in order have a more resilient approach to their college experience? What other ways can we think about student success?
  • Teaching with Technology.  How has educational technology enhanced your teaching practice? How has using technology enhanced your students’ learning? What has this meant for your students’ higher education experience? What are some lessons you have learned when teaching with technology? 
  • Faculty Development. What are some innovative ways that you are supporting faculty on your campus? What faculty development programs are you implementing, and what have been the challenges or successes? What are some lessons learned as a faculty developer? What issues/problems have come up on your campus, and how have you solved these?
  • Open Educational Resources (OER). How has OER impacted the design of your curriculum, or enhanced your teaching practice? What strategic partnerships have been beneficial to cultivate in developing OER? What are some of the lessons that you've learned in implementing OER? How has utilizing OER been beneficial to students?

INTERACTIVE SESSIONS

Presentation time: 50 minutes

These sessions usually include a single presentation or panel discussion combined with engaging methods to involve participants in an active learning process.


RESEARCH DISCUSSIONS

Presentation time: 15 minutes + 10 minutes Q & A

These sessions are intended to feature original research, work in progress, or evaluations of pedagogical practices, instructional projects, or use of technology. Theoretical proposals that show promise of enhancing participants’ understanding and practice of effective teaching and learning principles will also be considered. The nature of the research or evaluation may be qualitative or quantitative, but the emphasis should be on evidence of quality enhancement. Preference will be given to proposals that show promise of providing practical, actionable information for conference participants.


ROUND TABLES

Presentation time:  25 minutes

These sessions are designed to allow maximum interaction in informal, small-group discussions focused on a single topic. Typically, the presenter will be showcasing materials or information with a group of about 8-10 participants.  Handouts are helpful.
