This interactive session will present a variety of teaching methods and strategies designed to engage students in the learning process. From "the onion ball," to "mission possible," participants will be actively involved in learning and practicing up to 10 different strategies that can be modified and adapted to meet the needs of diverse content areas ranging from math to history, and science to psychology. Such strategies will help the content come alive and become meaningful to students as they participate in active learning.


This session is presented by Dr. Elissa Barr, Professor, Public Health,  a Faculty Fellow in the Office of Faculty Enhancement.


I Hate Group Work

I Hate Group Work! Collaborative Learning for Unmotivated Students

Friday, March 31, 2017
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Location: Online Learning Lab/Bldg 10/Room 1102


Faculty often choose collaborative projects because they most reflect the type of work students will do once they leave the college environment. Collaborative learning projects can produce substantive results in student learning. Many students find these collaborative projects challenging, and students often complain that fellow students are not completing adequate portions of the final project. In this session, faculty will address the rewards and challenges of group projects. Presenters will focus on student motivation, or the lack thereof, and its effects on group projects and will provide some practical solutions to helping students make the most of their group projects.

Faculty are invited to join the Faculty Innovation Team, a group of UNF faculty who care about student engagement and student learning and who are not satisfied with just getting students through a course.

Gender, race, ethnicity, religion, politics and other aspects of presence can impact teaching and learning for both instructors and students. For untenured professors, these elements can impact teaching evaluations. Come to this workshop to learn about best practices related to embodiment, and to share and learn about strategies from your peers. This session will be presented by Dr. Brandi Denison, Assistant Professor, Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies, a Faculty Fellow in the Office of Faculty Enhancement.
