Supporting First-Generation Students Series
Early September

To complement programming UWGB has created for first-generation students, this series will bring instructors together to discuss how we can best support these learners. This community of practice will consider how we may apply educational research on first-generation students to support our specific students. A call for participants will come out in mid-September—stay tuned for more information!

OpenStax Workshop
October 15, 2019
In this workshop, the CATL team will work through bringing an Open Educational Resource (OER) into a sample Canvas course. We’ll be using OpenStax resources, which include free, peer-reviewed textbooks, sample assignments and assessments, and module resources. Instructors are encouraged to work along in their own sample courses, or just come and see what it’s all about. A list of currently available courses is available at openstax.org/subjects.
 
"How to be HIP" Embedding HIPs in Program Curriculum Workshop
November
Staff from the Office of the Provost will host a workshop that helps participants build equity-minded, high-impact experiences into program curricula. Participants will consider whether students have equity in access to, but also experiences in, engaged learning practices and will create a curriculum map that promotes both.

 
Teaching Techniques For Professionals and Other Adult Students Series
In this series of meetings, we’ll learn about instructional techniques adapted for adult learners. Watch our Tuesday communications for more details!
