FROM 10:00 am TO 11:00 am

Facilitator: Dr. Kimberly Fournier

Location: CTLB 110


Academic writing should be an act of deep thinking and reflection. It can lead to discovery, synthesis, evaluation, creation, and communication of knowledge. When students translate information and experience into their own words, it helps them understand, strengthen, and build their learning of content knowledge.


This workshop will focus on short, informal, and low-stakes writing tasks that help students think through key concepts or ideas in any discipline. The activities do not ask the learners nor faculty to focus on writing as a skill, but rather as a tool to help students learn. Thus, these activities are different from those that are designed to allow student to demonstrate achievement on final products (e.g., essay exam questions, term papers, etc…)


These activities can be used in various situation, but are most useful when students would benefit from thinking about what they are doing or why they are doing it.

Facilitator: Dr. Kimberly Fournier

Location: CTLB 110


Inclusive strategies address the needs of student with a variety of backgrounds, learning styles, and abilities.


These strategies contribute to an overall inclusive learning environment, in which students feel equally valued. They allow faculty to connect/engage with a variety of students. They help faculty prepare for when controversial material is discussed. They help students connect with course material that is relevant to them.  They help students feel comfortable to voice their ideas/thoughts/questions. 


Incorporating these strategies typically means students are more likely to experience success.

Location: CTLB 110


Are the teaching methods we think work - as effective as we think they are?


Learn to implement engaging teaching methods that have demonstrated success in higher education.


This is the first of two workshops aimed at implementing evidence-based methods for engaging teaching. This workshop will focus on easily implemented activities to help make lectures more engaging (structured notetaking, writing to learn activities, and metacognitive reflections). Part II will focus on engaging activities that may require slightly more preparation prior to implementation (reciprocal peer teaching, reading strategies, and graphic organizers). This workshop was first presented at this year's Get Set & Reset Event.

Facilitator: Dr. Christopher Holden

Location: CTLB room 110


Too often, learning is constructed in the classroom as an assimilation of abstract facts and principles, and there is no connection between what's in the book and how these ideas take on meaning in life and action. Mobile technology, and genres like AR, provide flexible ways to develop context, collaboration, and action as part of a learning experience. The same mechanics that Pokemon Go used to overwhelm our parks last year can be put to far more diverse purposes. Learning can be situated within authentic contexts, and connections can be made between concepts in class and the world around us like never before. From learning games to data collection, the rich forms of interaction possible with mobile are as accessible to luddites as they are to programmers, thanks to easy-to-use tools like the open source platform ARIS.


In this workshop, you'll learn some of what's been done with these tools to create rich, meaningful learning experiences, and how you can get involved yourself

Improved metacognitive skills have been found to be positively correlated with enhanced learning and improved study strategies for students. Thus, it has been suggested that instructors implement strategies to help students develop metacognition skills. Exam wrappers are short, reflective writing activities that ask students to review their study strategies in relation to their performance on an exam with the intent of influencing their future practices.


This workshop will focus on helping your students assess their own knowledge and self-regulate their own study behaviors by using exam wrappers.

Facilitator: NM Dream Team & UNM Sanctuary Campus Working Group

Location: Rodey Theater, UNM Main Campus


Please join us for an important 2-hour training that will focus on how UNM faculty and staff can advocate for undocumented students on campus.


Members of the New Mexico Dream Team are leading the way to designate the University of New Mexico a “Dream Campus,” a place where undocumented students are fully welcomed and supported.” As educators, we play a vital role in the protection and inclusivity of undocumented students on campus. Every year 65,000 undocumented students graduate high school. Of those students 7.5% of them go onto college and only 1-3% of them graduate (US Dept. of Education, 2015). There are numerous reasons why undocumented students do not graduate college, including an arduous work schedule, financial instability, and family separation. Thus, by creating a Dream Campus at UNM we can build the institutional infrastructure to support and protect undocumented students.


Among the measures the NM Dream Team and the Sanctuary Campus Working Group want UNM to implement are departmental action and organizing to provide resources and safe learning spaces for undocumented students. The training will include: a) an introduction to DACA and student experiences on campus, b) a brief ‘know your rights’ training, and c) detailed information about how we can better organize within our departments and colleges to make the Dream Campus designation a reality.


We are grateful for your support of and solidarity with immigrant communities and students on campus.


No registration is required for this event.
