Topic: Supporting First-Year Students: Successes and Challenges of a New Mentorship Program
Led by: Danielle Hartsfield and Royce Dansby-Sparks
The Mentorship Affinity Group project is a new program aimed at facilitating informal mentor/mentee relationships between first-year Honors students and faculty. Workshop participants will learn 1) how the Mentorship Affinity Group program was implemented, 2) and the program’s successes and challenges. The workshop will be informative to faculty, staff, and administrators who wish to increase faculty/student interaction, which could yield positive outcomes such as greater retention rates, academic achievement, and increased collaboration on research and creative activities. 

RBTS seeks to support the work of faculty from all disciplines, colleges, and campuses by offering faculty presentations and workshops on best practices in teaching and learning. These workshops not only provide information and resources for faculty seeking to enhance their own pedagogical practices, but also give faculty an opportunity to present their work to peers. All sessions will be live on Zoom and video-recorded for archival purposes.

Topic: Fostering Diversity and Inclusion in the Classroom through the Discussion of Visual Culture
Led by: Ana Pozzi Harris
Modeling a classroom activity applicable for all academic levels, this workshop will demonstrate the potential of using art images and images of visual culture to introduce discussions about diversity and inclusion as part of course content. Images used represent forms of identity, affirmation, social protest, and awareness about issues of the present day. The learning outcomes of this activity are for participants to connect learned information with their own social experiences of race and gender, and to collaborate with other participants to enrich their multicultural perspective.

RBTS seeks to support the work of faculty from all disciplines, colleges, and campuses by offering faculty presentations and workshops on best practices in teaching and learning. These workshops not only provide information and resources for faculty seeking to enhance their own pedagogical practices, but also give faculty an opportunity to present their work to peers.
