Workshops

Advising Best Practices - presented by Amy Keeling & Susan Pearson
As you begin the semester, you may have several new advisees on your list. We will have some helpful tips to help you work with these students who have been transitioned or reassigned to you for academic advising. Topics to be covered include; making notes in degree works, finding your advisee PIN numbers, change of major, graduation application approval/denial, and some best practices in mandatory advising. There will be plenty of opportunity for Q/A.

Helping Learners Retain Information - presented by Nancy Hamilton & Dr. Tracy Sands
This workshop provides faculty with specific and interactive metacognitive learning strategies to utilize within the course to help learners comprehend, retain, and apply course information.

Library: Streaming Video Services - presented by Robert Benson & Librarians
Roane State Libraries provide access to thousands of streaming videos across a wide range of academic disciplines. In this session, you will learn how to find streaming videos and incorporate them into your courses. We will also introduce the library’s newest collection, Kanopy. An industry leader in terms of technology and quality of content, Kanopy boasts a curated catalog of over 30,000 educational, entertaining, and enriching films, including classic feature films; independent/arthouse films; and documentaries.

Writing Assignment & Brainstorming Workshop - presented by Jenny Rowan & Krystie Anderson
This workshop is for faculty from all disciplines to bring and share a sample of a writing assignment they ask students to complete in their courses. In small groups, faculty can discuss the role of writing within their classrooms, getting feedback on their writing assignments, and possibly finding points of collaboration with their peers in other disciplines.

Zoom Room Training - presented by Dr. Jamie Stringer, Mike Farmer, & CTAT
This workshop will provide an overview of the room, how to conrol the zoom room, how to use the interactive displays and tools, and will include hands-on use. Please feel free to a PowerPoint, movie, or other media you would like to try out in the room.
