Preparing a Winning Book Proposal  
Wednesday, May 20, 2015, 10:00 - 11:45 a.m. (Limited to the first 20 registrants)
Center for Faculty Excellence, 316 Gannett Center
With Sheri Englund of Englund Literary Services
If you will be spending this summer preparing a book manuscript, it’s not too soon to think about approaching publishers. Is your manuscript ready? How can you create and narrow a list of suitable presses? And what will you need to do to introduce acquisitions editors to your manuscript—and seize their interest? This workshop will deliver the key know-how and strategies that new authors need to approach presses. We will discuss acquisitions editors and what they look for, book proposals and writing samples, submission strategies, and the peer review process. Through guided writing exercises and group brainstorming, you will work with colleagues to complete a polished “elevator speech” about your book project, an important step toward an effective book proposal. There will be plenty of time for questions, and you will leave the session with a carefully crafted, marketable description of your project and a clear understanding of how to craft a complete, effective book proposal.

Note: This session lays the groundwork for additional faculty development opportunities  through the summer. Faculty who register, prepare for, and attend the May workshop will be eligible to apply for individual on-campus consultations with Sheri Englund, funded by the Center for Faculty Excellence.

Dr. Sheri Englund owns and operates Englund Literary Services, a freelance editorial business specializing in nonfiction in the social sciences and humanities. A former Ivy League acquisitions editor, Englund is a seasoned publishing professional who has worked directly with writers for twenty years. She is one of only a handful of editors in the nation currently offering formal advice on scholarly book proposals. Read more about Englund Literary Services.

Seven Levers for Higher and Deeper Learning: Research-based Guidelines and Strategies for Using Assessment to Improve Teaching and Learning
How much would you trust a physician, engineer, athletic coach, or nurse who did not keep up with and apply lessons from relevant research in his/her field? Or one who could not apply basic principles of good practice to new situations, with new client populations, or in using new technologies? Probably not much. Yet many faculty, student affairs leaders, and academic administrators remain (relatively) unaware of current research -- in psychology, cognitive science, and education -- on teaching, learning, and assessment and on its relevance to our daily practice. This interactive session will explore seven research-based guidelines and provide examples of simple, powerful applications of assessment to improve teaching and student learning in and beyond our (virtual and actual) classrooms and co-curricular programs.

Harnessing Cats and Colts: Linking Classroom Assessment and Collaborative Learning Techniques
Engaging students in productive group work is critical to deep, lasting learning—but also very hard to do well. Likewise, formative assessment can contribute greatly to learning by providing early feedback, but it can also be difficult to manage and time consuming. In this interactive session, we'll consider and experiment with simple, practical, and mutually supportive classroom assessment techniques (CATs) and collaborative learning techniques (CoLTs) that can make teaching and learning more engaging and more effective whether in the classroom or in co-curricular settings.
3:30 – 4:30 p.m.: Questions, Answers, and Discussion

Engaging in Conversations--Integration, Mentoring, and Reflection in Service Learning Courses
Thursday, April 30, 2015, 3:30 - 5:00 p.m. (Register here)
Center for Faculty Excellence, 316 Gannett Center
Co-sponsored by the Center for Faculty Excellence and the Office of Civic Engagement
Moderator: Patricia B. Spencer, Faculty Director of Service Learning
Panelists bring perspectives from:
The School of Business—Scott Erickson, Professor and Chair/Marketing and Law—SL course: Social and Non-Profit Marketing
The School of HS&HP—Amy Frith, Associate Professor/Health Promotion and Physical Education—SL course: Community Nutrition
The School of H&S—Alicia Swords, Associate Professor/Sociology—SL course: Community Organizing
The School of Music—Radio Cremata, Assistant Professor/Music Education—SL course: Music Education in Hispanic and Diverse Contexts.

In this interactive session, current IC faculty with experience in service learning pedagogy, and from a range of disciplines, will discuss effective techniques, outcomes, and lessons learned in the delivery of service learning courses, which allow students to work with a community-based individual, group, or organization in a collaboration that also benefits the community partner. Panelists will describe strategies for integrating service learning pedagogy into course design, techniques to enhance faculty mentoring of student experience, and methods for incorporating reflection in a variety of ways, including journaling, structured discussion, and post-experience analysis. This discussion session will help faculty identify ways to introduce service learning into courses that do not currently contain it as a component, and to support faculty who are already using service learning to incorporate it further into their work.

This panel will serve as a conversation starter for our up-coming Faculty Service Learning Institute.

How Learning Works: Principles for Integrating Knowledge Across Disciplines 
A tenet of learner-centered teaching is that learning is the litmus test of any pedagogy. Therefore, one of the most important investments professors can make is to understand the learning process so that their teaching is intentionally learning-oriented. The book, How Learning Works, synthesizes 50 years of research on learning from the cognitive, metacognitive, motivational, developmental, and inclusiveness perspectives into seven integrated principles. In this interactive workshop, we will explain the seven principles, then zoom in on principles #6-7, pertaining to student development, classroom climate, and self-direction in learning. All these concepts relate to integrative learning. We will illustrate the seven principles with demonstrations, discussions, and other activities that highlight how each of the principles might enhance participants’ teaching, student learning, and further the goals of Ithaca College’s Integrative Core Curriculum. 

10:15 - 11:15 a.m. (Register here)
How Learning Works: Faculty Voices
This follow-up session builds on the workshop. The principles of learning are broadly applicable, but their full potential is realized when they are situated and understood in a specific educational context. We will use some cases constructed from faculty experiences, and we will deconstruct them using the principles from How Learning Works. A panel of faculty, as well as the session participants, will contribute perspectives and brainstorm strategies on how to resolve some common pedagogical impasses. The cases will cover hot moments in the classroom, cross-cultural communication, issues of power, privilege and oppression, and critical thinking.

All sessions will take place in the Klingenstein Lounge.
Patrick Green, EdD
Director, Center for Experiential Learning
Loyola University Chicago

EPortfolio pedagogy provides higher education institutions with the opportunity to embed integrative learning in and through the curriculum. Fostering evidence-based learning through critical reflection encourages transformative education. A model for ePortfolio integration will be highlighted. Strategies for utilizing ePortfolios to enhance teaching and learning and integrated course design will be shared. Sample student ePortfolios will demonstrate approaches to enhance student learning and foster engaged learning in the curriculum.

Followed by two workshops focused on critical reflection and engaged learning.
11:00 - 11.50 a.m. Workshop 1: Using ePortfolios to Foster Critical Reflection (Register here)
ePortfolios provide a digital format for students to reflect critically on their learning. How do educators scaffold student learning through critical reflection? What strategies encourage students to reflect on their learning in ePortfolios as well as integrate their learning across disciplines and experiences? This workshop will utilize sample student ePortfolios to explore critical reflection.

1:00 - 1.50 p.m. Workshop 2: Using ePortfolios to Assess Engaged Learning (Register here)
A model for using ePortfolios for curriculum assessment is shared. As students participate in High Impact Learning courses and reflect on their engaged learning experiences, students submit reflection artifacts into ePortfolios. An outcomes-based rubric was developed to assess if students are meeting the outcomes of the engaged learning courses. Participants in this workshop will review student reflection artifacts and apply the rubric to determine if the outcomes are met. Discussion around direct assessment of ePortfolio artifacts and implications for assessment strategies will engage participants to apply to their own courses or programs.
