RBTS | Effectively Engaging Undergraduates in the Analysis of Primary Literature

Effectively Engaging Undergraduates in the Analysis of Primary Literature workshop information for the Blue Ridge, Cumming, Dahlonega, Gainesville, and Oconee Campuses.

Led by: Miriam Segura-Totten

Locations:
Blue Ridge 107
Cumming 262
Dahlonega Hansford 312
Gainesville Nesbitt 5105
Oconee SRC 564

The goals of this workshop is to (1) provide faculty with evidence-based examples of successful methods for classroom literature analysis, (2) discuss the difference between how undergraduates and faculty experts engage with primary literature; and (3) provide evidence-based suggestions for techniques that may enhance student understanding of primary literature. Although the examples and techniques emerged from STEM, these principles apply to all disciplines however they define “primary literature.” Prior to the workshop, faculty participants are encouraged to think about courses where they would like to include the analysis of literature. During the workshop, there will be activities geared to facilitate participant brainstorming about how to incorporate the analysis of primary literature into their classes.

Research-Based Teaching Series: Best Practices for Significant Learning in the Flipped Classroom


Wednesday, March 7, 2018
12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Best Practices for Significant Learning in the Flipped Classroom
Led by Sarah Formica, Associate Professor of Physics

There’s more to a flipped classroom than reading assignments and pre-lecture videos. Students need to engage with the material, each other, and their instructor to have significant learning experiences. This workshop will provide you with the opportunity to experience a flipped classroom, as well as tools and strategies you can use to flip your own. There will be a pre-workshop assignment and group activities during the workshop, so come prepared and ready to engage.
