Workshop at Southern Sociological Society's Meeting
Workshop at North Central Sociological Association's Meeting
Workshop at Midwest Sociological Society's Meeting
Join colleagues interested in teaching pedagogy, practical application, and the scholarship of teaching and learning from a variety of academic settings in a half-day workshop designed to expose the inner workings of course design, student engagement, meaningful learning, and effective assessment. Participants will craft a unique workshop experience from a selection of roundtable discussions best suited to their individual interests and needs. Roundtable topics include, but are not limited to, backward design, community based learning, assessment tools beyond the exam, and working with technology in the classroom. Time will be allocated for networking with colleagues interested in sharing ideas, gaining support, and building collaboration, so participants are encouraged to bring business cards to share. The workshop will conclude with a session on the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning.
This workshop will benefit those working within a range of settings, including instructors from community colleges and small liberal arts institutions, as well as early career faculty and graduate students.
Each event is intended to advance the quality of teaching in the
discipline of sociology.
If selected as an AKD Fellow, you will be expected to develop a new pedagogical technique, course, or curricular innovation inspired by the workshop and to provide AKD with a progress report on your work after the workshop is completed. We will follow up with you periodically (three months, six months, nine months, etc.) to see how you are doing and if there is anything we or the program organizers and facilitators can do to help.
Please direct questions about the AKD Fellowships to the AKD Executive Office at AKD@lemoyne.edu.
