Video of the Week

Ideology drives us apart. Neuroscience can bring us back together.
How can we reach out to people on the other side of the divide? Get to know the other person as a human being before you get to know them as a set of tribal political beliefs, says Sarah Ruger. Don’t launch straight into the difficult topics—connect on a more basic level first.
To bond, use icebreakers backed by neuroscience and psychology: Share a meal, watch some comedy, see awe-inspiring art, go on a tough hike together—sharing tribulation helps break down some of the mental barriers we have between us. Then, get down to talking, putting your humanity before your ideology.

Foster Care Students Face Challenges Entering, Graduating College

Dr. Nathaniel Brown’s scholarly interest in how foster care students access higher education goes beyond intellectual curiosity – he was a foster child and knows first-hand the barriers between that population and attainment of a college degree.

 


Quote of the week

Teaching Across Cultural Strengths: A Guide to Balancing Integrated and Individuated Cultural Frameworks in College Teaching

Applying Cultural Introspection to Teaching and Learning

“Asking students about the way they experience life, the meaning of their behaviors, and their perspectives on how they learn most naturally is an effective technique to gain greater understanding. Similarly, self-reflection or introspection is a powerful tool for gaining a deeper sense of how we bring personal values from our cultural, familial, and community upbringing into our teaching practice. Combining the two helps us as teachers to understand our students and ourselves more fully, enabling us to purposefully challenge our own assumptions, consider other ways of doing things among our students, and then design and facilitate pedagogies that engage students more fully from where they are and who they are culturally.”

One Way to Take the Sting Out of Student Feedback

Skipping to the Good Parts

Most of what students write in Joshua S. Goodman’s course evaluations is positive. Even so, Goodman, an associate professor of public policy at Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, found that “the one harsh comment” in each batch would stick with him. That negative comment wouldn’t just hurt his feelings: It made him less receptive to the good suggestions that students made.

Faculty Focus

Unleashing the Power of Examples

College teachers often enter their classrooms with thousands of hours of experience in their chosen field, and they typically face students who have little to no experience with that field of study. In this setting, teachers may take for granted all that they know and are able to do. In a sense, they expect students to “get inside their head.” One of the joys of teaching is finding ways to take complex topics and present them in such a way that students begin their own journey of discovery.

Quote of the week

Teaching Across Cultural Strengths: A Guide to Balancing Integrated and Individuated Cultural Frameworks in College Teaching

Teaching with a Balance

“Teaching with a balance of cultural frameworks while maintaining an awareness of the rewards and hazards is more likely to result in our long-term transformation through cultural balance in teaching. Knowing the rewards will help us maintain the long-term commitment to engaging culturally with students while awareness of hazards prepares us to expect some resistance and plan accordingly. Overall, we believe the rewards far outweigh the hazards, that students will learn more and succeed at greater rates, and that we will be greatly rewarded both personally and professionally when we engage culture in college teaching.”

How to Succeed at a Teaching Demo

You’ve been shortlisted for a tenure-track position and invited to visit the campus. Congratulations — you’ve made it up some pretty steep terrain to a point few Ph.D.s reach. Chances are, your interview is not at the type of research institution where you were trained, but at a teaching-oriented one. Equally likely, you haven’t been all that well prepared for the most important piece of the interview there: the “teaching demonstration.”

Faculty Focus

The Almond Joy of Providing Feedback to Students

Providing detailed feedback is a critical component of effective teaching. Feedback serves as a one-to-one conversation with students and can be a powerful tool to teach course content, mentor students, and help them to develop a growth mindset (Dweck, 2006). Decades of research have identified the characteristics of good feedback as expedient, specific, and related to the expectations of the task (Nichols & Macfarlane‐Dick, 2006). Feedback must also provide students with information about how to improve their work, which is focused on future learning (Sadler, 1989).

Quote of the week

Teaching Across Cultural Strengths: A Guide to Balancing Integrated and Individuated Cultural Frameworks in College Teaching

Identities and Transformed Teaching

“Cultural identities of faculty can influence how we are perceived and treated by students and colleagues, especially when we try transformed teaching techniques with students. Faculty from cultural groups more common in higher education, primarily Northern European cultures, are typically deferred to by students, especially if male (Stanley, 2006; Viernes Turner, 1994). For these faculty, students will more likely go along with or at least not actively resist or complain about new techniques in a learning environment. Faculty who are women or who have integrated cultural origins are more likely to experience active resistance or complaints from students when they apply teaching pedagogies less common in collegiate learning environments. We found in our work with faculty that these groups faced some challenges related to their cultural origins and gender. Finding our own individual ways to authentically incorporate new pedagogies and relational dynamics with students and reaching out for discussion with and support from like-minded colleagues can be very helpful with these challenges.”

“Everybody with Me?” and Other Not-so-useful Questions

“Any questions?” “Is everybody with me?” “Does this make sense?” I have asked my students these vague types of questions many times and the most common response was…silence. But how should I interpret the silence? Perhaps the students understand everything completely and therefore have no questions. Maybe they have questions but are afraid to ask them out of fear of looking stupid. Or it could mean that they are so lost they don’t even know what to ask! Only our boldest students would say; “Um, you lost me 10 minutes ago, can you repeat the whole thing again?”

Teaching Across Cultural Strengths: A Guide to Balancing Integrated and Individuated Cultural Frameworks in College Teaching

Support and Connection

“Though some colleagues may show enthusiasm, interest, and connection to a wider cultural framework of teaching and learning, some are likely to confer criticism. We may be demeaned or may meet with disapproval in our disciplines. We may meet with indifference or feel alone in our endeavors. Going against the culture of common modes of college teaching may be as uncomfortable for colleagues as it is for students. Worse still, our deepened, more connected teaching approaches may be misinterpreted as too familiar, less rigorous, or not conforming to current expectations. Reaching out to like-minded colleagues across campus and nationally within your discipline and through conferences on teaching and learning offers support and company along the way. Noticing the positive influences on our students and their learning over time will also make us feel more comfortable in our choices to balance across cultural frameworks in our teaching.”

Taking Notes on the Reading

Every course has assignments, but do they get the attention they deserve or do the same versions end up in the syllabus year after year? How much variety is there in the assignments students complete, in degree programs or even across their years at the institution? Bottom line: we think there’s more that could be done with assignments, and this feature aims to provide examples that illustrate innovative approaches and thoughtful attention to design details.

From Summiting Bloom’s to Promoting Lifelong Learning

Bloom’s Taxonomy has long been regarded as the holy grail in leading students through a process of content mastery. The traditional journey begins with imparting information to learners and finds its apex in enabling learners to evaluate and assess knowledge claims. In theory, each step of the journey to mastery builds on prior steps.

 

Office Hours Alternative Resonates with Students

Faculty regularly face the problem of getting the students most in need of help to come to the office for help. Not only do a small number of students take advantage of office hours, typically those who show up are not those who most need to be there.

SCC STUDENT DATA TO SUPPORT GUIDED PATHWAYS AND WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT

California community colleges have undertaken significant improvement efforts in the areas of completion, equity, basic skills, and career education.  Still, when we examine key indicators of success the numbers have not moved significantly and equity gaps persist.  This workshop will provide an opportunity to review and analyze SCC student data and brainstorm with our peers on how guided pathways and equity initiatives will enable more students to reach their personal and professional goals.

Presented by: Kathy Booth, Senior Research Associate, West Ed

Berea College and the Father of Black History

Preeminent scholar Dr. Carter G. Woodson has been dubbed “the father of Black history” and is known for earning degrees at the University of Chicago and Harvard, but less well known is how living in Appalachia and attending Berea College informed his towering intellect and tireless work ethic.

Quote of the week

Teaching Across Cultural Strengths: A Guide to Balancing Integrated and Individuated Cultural Frameworks in College Teaching

Diversifying Instead of Essentializing

“A dilemma of balancing our teaching between integrated and individuated sides of the continua to reach specific students is worrying about or being suspected of essentializing students, a concern that sometimes arises in relation to culture. However, essentializing occurs when we apply assumptions about a population to an individual or a group of individuals without considering the possibilities of differences in each individual. Balancing across a range of cultural frameworks in teaching offers a wider variety of learning opportunities and experiences to all students, which is not the same as essentializing. Diversifying teaching allows each individual to learn within a diversity of pedagogies, learning experiences, interactions, and relationships, hopefully finding their own natural learning processes somewhere in the mix. Paradoxically, the very acts of addressing culture and varying cultural preferences could instigate concerns about cultural insensitivity and may be perceived as forms of microaggressions (Sue, 2010). In some cases we may realize that we are actually engaging in cultural microaggressions and find it helpful to analyze and address these in our own teaching and through conversations with colleagues.”

Community of Care, Student Intervention:

“Without a sense of caring, there can be no sense of community.”
– Anthony J. D’Angelo

As colleagues, getting to the know the students are one of the most valuable measurements to success. The Community of Care provides timely intervention for those experiencing academic or personal difficulties. Any member of the community can make a referral.

We provide strategies and resources on- and off-campus to help students succeed at Sacramento City College.

The program is just another example of how Sacramento City College cares and supports its students. By using a case management model, Care Team members are able to work with students individually to personalize interventions that assist the student in overcoming the barriers preventing their success.

The End of the Remedial Course

They’ve tried compressing it, breaking it into bite-size chunks, computerizing it, even making it optional. But the traditional, prerequisite remedial course that generations of underprepared students have been funneled into before they can start college-level courses remains an insurmountable barrier for too many students. Increasingly, it is being ditched altogether.

The “Big Bang” of Motivation: Questions That Evoke Wonder in Our Students

“If I had influence with the good fairy who is supposed to preside over the christening of all children I should ask that her gift to each child in the world be a sense of wonder so indestructible that it would last throughout life, as an unfailing antidote against the boredom and disenchantments of later years, the sterile preoccupation with things artificial, the alienation from the sources of our strength.”
– Rachel Carson, A Sense of Wonder

 

Office Hours Alternative Resonates with Students

Faculty regularly face the problem of getting the students most in need of help to come to the office for help. Not only do a small number of students take advantage of office hours, typically those who show up are not those who most need to be there.

Quote of the week

Teaching Across Cultural Strengths: A Guide to Balancing Integrated and Individuated Cultural Frameworks in College Teaching

Cultural Assumptions and Stereotypes

The Work and Risk of Change

“Moving out of our comfort zones, especially when we are already overwhelmed with work, is not easy. The tyranny of the academic workload is such that changing a syllabus that seems to work can upset the delicate balance in our challenging schedules. In already overloaded schedules, we do not need more work. The risk of changing something that seems to be working is that we may adopt teaching strategies that end up failing. Yet the risk also presents opportunities for trying new things and enhancing student learning. New pedagogies may be uncomfortable for students who are used to feeling at ease in academic environments, and we may receive critique from students as they resist new forms of learning. Learning takes work, yet with peer and instructor involvement in class, the most difficult part of learning—learning for understanding—can be achieved in collaboration with others. Students do better adopting new styles along with us when they have their own buy-in for new learning processes (Smith, 2008). Over time and with purposeful sharing of learning road maps with our students, conditions improve, yet the beginning can be difficult especially for those with less experience using relational skills.”

Role Play Gives Students Valuable Pre-Practicum Experiences

In today’s college practicum experiences, it is sometimes quite difficult for students to find quality field or clinical placements to log hours of pre-professional experiences. Hospitals, clinics, and school districts maintain busy schedules and are not always willing to allow interns into their facilities to practice their professional skills on an ongoing basis.

 

Why Are We So Quick to Judge Our Students?

I once had a student who missed numerous classes and assignments. Whenever I approached him about it, he would deny that he had missed anything. He’d insist that he had been present or handed in the assignment, and that I…

 

Class Discussion: From Blank Stares to True Engagement

Thirty years of research in the scholarship of teaching and learning in higher education have demonstrated that when students are engaged in the classroom, they learn more (Pascarella and Terezini 1991, 2005). Classroom discussion is likely the most commonly used strategy for actively engaging students. Whether it is a seminar course centered on discussion or a lecture punctuated by moments of interaction with students, discussion is likely second only to lecture as the most frequently used pedagogical strategy.
