Pre-Conference Workshops


  • Using Decision-Based Learning to Help Students Develop Critical Thinking in Your Subject Area (Taught by Ken Plummer of BYU's Center for Teaching & Learning): In this pre-conference workshop, participants will develop a lesson using an innovative methodology entitled Decision-Based Learning. This approach to learning has been shown to dramatically increase students critical thinking and confidence in multiple disciplines. During the workshop participants will create three elements: a simple decision model, concise learning modules, a small problem or scenario bank. These will be combined into one to two lessons to be used in actual courses. This is a full-day workshop.
  • Creating OER with EdTech Books: An Easy, Accessible Open Textbook Platform (Taught by Royce Kimmons of Brigham Young University): Research shows that open educational resources (OER) perform just as well or better than traditional textbooks, but various barriers prevent educators from creating their own open textbooks—like lack of technical expertise, time, or resources. To help overcome these barriers, this workshop introduces EdTechBooks.org: a new [university]-created open textbook authoring platform that brings together best practices of UX/web design, data management, instructional design, and print design into a single platform that is made available at no cost to instructors, students, and anyone else. Come learn how to create your own open textbook and leverage the power of OER. This is a Half-day workshop and will be taught in the morning of March 4th.
  • POGIL: An Introduction to Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning for Those Who Wish to Empower Learners (Taught by Shawn Simonson of Boise State University): Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning (POGIL) is a learner-centered pedagogy based on research into how people learn that results in improved student content and process skill outcomes across a variety of academic disciplines. This workshop serves as an active introduction to POGIL and an exploration of the benefits of this approach to active learning in the classroom. Participants will experience a POGIL-based learning environment, analyze activities to understand how guided-inquiry is structured in a POGIL classroom, and consider classroom facilitation and other issues related to the implementation of POGIL. This is a Half-day workshop and will be taught in the afternoon of March 4th.
  • Sorry, this session has been canceled - Designing Courses for Significant Learning (Taught by Lynn Sorenson of Dee Fink & Associates): This workshop provides participants a hands-on experience with Fink's systematic way of designing courses for significant learning, that is, for "learning in harmony." In this workshop, you'll work through one of your own courses (or workshops) identifying learning outcomes, learning activities, and learning assessments. You'll have opportunities to get feedback from the facilitator and the other participants--and to share your own ideas, too. All materials (including the Powerpoint) are copyright-free for faculty members and faculty developers to share with colleagues. This is a full-day workshop.
