Flipping (inverting) instruction to strengthen student engagement and achievement: Part I
Jay Rasmussen, Ph.D., and Dan Swensen, Ph.D.
Have you ever wondered if there are better ways to use precious class time with your students? This workshop will help you examine activities that students can complete outside of class so that meaningful engagement can occur in the classroom.  Additionally, you will learn basic flipped classroom theory and have the opportunity to discuss helpful strategies/accountability measures that can increase student engagement and achievement through a student-centered classroom. (Part II will be presented at our April 19 meeting.) 

Teaching writing mechanics/conventions using minimal class time (what and how to teach it)
Judi Landrum, Ph.D.
This workshop will describe and model how to determine which types of conventions (grammar, punctuation, and APA style) to mark/discuss in a variety of class levels (general education classes through Ed.D. classes) and levels of student writing ability. In addition, a system for using a small amount of class time (20-30 minutes once during the course) to work on writing conventions will be explained and modeled.

Book discussion on Reconciling All Things
