The first day of class sets the tone for the whole semester. Your students will form their first impression of you, and it is your opportunity to establish the classroom environment that sustains the class for the term. In this workshop, we cover strategies for making good use of this time, including establishing the relevance of the course, articulating student and instructor expectations, introducing course materials, and designing “icebreaker” activities. Participants will leave the workshop with a plan for their first day of class.

Objectives: By the end of this workshop, students will be able to…
• Identify some of the common mistakes of first-time instructors
• Set goals and determine a plan of action for the first day of class

Course Help for Faculty: Putting Your Materials in Blackboard- FACULTY ONLY (Pitt UCTL)
Tue 8/22/2017 12:00PM - 1:00PM
Alumni Hall

The vast majority of faculty at Pitt use Blackboard. Students appreciate having a single place to go for course content; however, Blackboard is so feature rich, with so many places to post items, it can be confusing to know where certain course materials should be placed. When items are placed in the wrong (or hidden and rarely used spaces), students get frustrated. This short workshop will help you get things in the right place—whether you are creating a new course from scratch or are using an inherited or cloned course--in a way that supports best practices in student learning through Blackboard.It will also help you organize your class materials – and who doesn’t need a little extra organizational help at the beginning of the semester? Additional help is available after the workshop in the Educational Technology Center (basement of Alumni Hall). This workshop is for all full- and part-time faculty of the University of Pittsburgh only. Lunch will be provided.

Thu 9/7/2017 2:00AM - 4:00PM
Alumni Hall

This highly interactive workshop builds practical skills that faculty can implement in their teaching. It can be particularly helpful in preparing for and addressing difficult situations that may arise related to today’s social and political climate.  From tweaking your syllabus to rewording your assignments, the workshop focuses heavily on the use of language, wording, and tone in the learning environment. Faculty will leave with new techniques they can implement right away or over time to improve classroom civility, to promote honest conversations, and to highlight common ground on sensitive topics. This workshop applies various conflict mediation techniques to face-to-face and hybrid learning environments.

At the conclusion of this workshop, faculty will be able to:
  • Negotiate rules of engagement in the classroom with their students
  • Build trust with their students
  • Make smart word choices in a syllabus, learning activity, or facilitated dialogue
  • Implement mediation techniques in their teaching style
  • Bring more peace into their classroom

Keynote speaker: Hank Greely, JD

Invasive brain stimulation devices have great, and to some extent, already demonstrated potential, but, like all technologies, they come with a set of challenges. This talk will talk about ethical challenges arising from the relationship between the patients, doctors, and companies; the impact such technology may have on our sense of being human and being the source of our individuality; the legal issues arising from possible unintended effects of invasive brain stimulation; and practical issues, ranging from FDA and reimbursement considerations to public fears. It will also try to situate this technology, and the issues it raises, in relation to similar emerging neurotechnologies.
