Aligning Lessons through Backwards Design

Marcia Luptak (Adult Education), Heather Martin (English as a Second Language), and Erin Vobornik (English as a Second Language)


When creating a lesson plan, having clear goals and purposeful activities can simplify both the teaching and the learning process. This workshop will focus on approaches to designing lessons to align content and activities with outcomes to ensure that the class has a clear end in mind. We’ll explore instructional design strategies to help streamline the planning process.

3:30- 4:30pm Effectively Serving Our Adult Learners: Voices from the Field

Effectively Serving Our Adult Learners: Voices from the Field

Jennifer McClure (Enrollment Services) and Dave Rudden (Institutional Effectiveness)

Come hear about the results of the Council for Adult & Experiential Learning: Adult Learner 360 surveys which asked students and staff to respond to questions about effectively serving adult students across the Ten Principles for Effectively Serving Adults. We will provide data on the Teaching Learning Process and Assessment of Learning Outcomes Principles and share progress on the other Principles as well. Teaching Learning Process: Faculty uses multiple methods of instruction, including experiential and problem based methods, for adult learners in order to connect curricular concepts to useful knowledge and skills. Assessment of Learning Outcomes: Defines and assesses the knowledge, skills, and competencies acquired by adult learners - both from the curriculum and from life and work experience - in order to assign credit and confer degrees with rigor.

3:30- 4:30pm Deciphering Misinformation: Easy Fact-Checking Tools to Help Students

Beth Hultman (Library) and Maria Bagshaw (Library)

Wednesday, Feb. 17: 3:30- 4:30pm

Deciphering Misinformation: Easy Fact-Checking Tools to Help Students

Beth Hultman (Library) and Maria Bagshaw (Library)

Students are faced with the increasingly difficult task of wading through online disinformation. Librarians Beth Hultman and Maria Bagshaw will present tips and tricks that fact-checkers use to efficiently assess whether or not to trust a source. Evaluation tools such as CRAAP (currency, relevancy, authority, accuracy, purpose) are typically given to students to help answer whether sources are credible. This has been the standard checklist that many librarians and English professors use. However, this tool does not work as well as we want it to, especially in an all online environment where websites can spin a narrative and come across as trusted sources even if they are not. It is becoming more difficult for students to ascertain whether online information is true or not. We will teach a set of simple fact-checking tools that will give students the confidence to know whether a source is trustworthy and whether they should use a source or find a better one. Participants will be able to access these tools through our library homepage.

Bandwidth Recovery: Helping Students Recover Mental Energy and Self-Efficacy

Kristina Garcia (CABS) and Tyler Roeger (CETL)

Bandwidth Recovery involves “reclaiming cognitive resources lost to poverty, racism, and social marginalization.” This workshop will focus on methods of course design and teaching strategies intended to support students in focusing on course connections and finding self-efficacy. We will draw on ideas from inclusive design; such as Universal Design for Learning, Transparent Assignment design, and student self-reflection; to provide students with access points into course materials and methods.
