    Fall Learning Series 2014 – Learn, Share, Explore

      Notice: We are still in the process of building the Fall 2014 Learning Series schedule.  New workshops will be sent out over the faculty and adjunct listsrvs and added to this webpage as they scheduled.  
    The CELT Learning Series is designed to offer a variety of workshops using the Learn, Share and Explore tracks.  Besides these scheduled workshops the members of CELT are available by appointment to help you with your individual needs. 

    The CELT Learning Series is composed of workshops that are defined by three tracks: Learn, Share and Explore.


    Workshops on the Learn track are hands on workshops designed for participants to learn about subjects that currently have support structures in place by the university. These offerings will include informative workshops in the areas of technology, grants, instructional design, and student learning.


    Offerings in the share track will be presented by faculty or staff members wishing to share a teaching, advising, or organizational practice that they have found to be effective in their own work. If you are interested in delivering a workshop in the Share track then let us know about it.


    The Explore track will be composed of workshops and discussion groups around subjects for which the university does not have complete support structures in place. The explore track is intended to be a forward looking track that allows an avenue for creative dialog about current trends in the world at large that will affect higher education teaching and learning.

    Starting the Conversation: Diversity and Inclusion at Capital Today and Tomorrow
    Almar Walter - Director of Diversity and Inclusion -
    Capital University
    Conversations around the many aspects of diversity and inclusion are an ongoing dialog. These can be complex issues and there are no clear-cut answers. Every day in our classrooms and office environments, questions arise around the diverse culture in which we live in. CELT is partnering with the Office of Diversity and Inclusion to begin the conversation. In this 1hr open conversation, we would like to hear from you regarding the issues surrounding diversity and inclusion that interest you, as well as the topics you would like to explore further. Based on these conversations we will build future programming targeted at the identified needs. We are excited about creating this space for the ongoing exchange of ideas related to understanding, defining, and embracing diversity.

    Discussing the Higher Education NMC Horizon Report
    Autumm Caines - CELT Office
    Explore If you have never heard of the NMC Horizon Report this session is a great introduction.  The report is a collaborative effort between the NMC (New Media Consortium) and the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI), an EDUCAUSE Program. This eleventh edition describes annual findings from the NMC Horizon Project, an ongoing research project designed to identify and describe emerging technologies likely to have an impact on learning, teaching, and creative inquiry in education. Six key trends, six significant challenges, and six emerging technologies are identified across three adoption horizons over the next one to five years, giving campus leaders and practitioners a valuable guide for strategic technology planning. The format of the report is new this year, providing these leaders with more in-depth insight into how the trends and challenges are accelerating and impeding the adoption of educational technology, along with their implications for policy, leadership and practice.

    Stopping Plagiarism at the Source: Why Assignments Matter

    Every teacher dreads it—the plagiarized paper, the confrontation with a student, the demise of trust and learning. As schools move toward an online future, educators are understandably concerned about increases in plagiarism. Yet while the problem is real, there are solutions beyond forcing teachers into the role of police. In this presentation, we will reconsider our assignments with the goal of discovering how we can stop plagiarism before it happens. We’ll also touch on the role of school and classroom culture, and teacher attitudes and preparation.
