Spotlight on Teaching and Learning: Fall seminars and meetings

Spotlight on Teaching and Learning

Join the Fulton Schools Learning and Teaching Hub for professional learning opportunities this semester.

A focus on Research-based Instructional Strategies in Engineering, or RISE, has been the backbone for professional learning activities within the Learning and Teaching Hub. As we evolve our portfolio to meet the needs of the Fulton Schools community, it is through this lens. In addition, we look forward to identifying more opportunities to network and interact with peers through a newly established umbrella: the Educator Networking Group and Gatherings in Engineering, or ENGAGE. 

Join us at our upcoming professional learning opportunities, including virtual speaker seminars, communities of practice, on-demand modules and networking events. We invite everyone to RISE and ENGAGE with us!

Research-based Instructional Strategies in Engineering (RISE)

*New *  Communities of Practice (CoPs)

Based on feedback from the community and a need for more personalized, applied learning, several CoPs are planned related to specific topics. These opportunities are open to anyone in the Fulton Schools community who is interested:

  • Generative AI in teaching and learning.
  • Assessments in large-scale courses.
  • Student engagement and mental health.
  • Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) and Entrepreneurial Mindset (EM).
  • LTH book study.

Interested in joining a CoP or forming one with LTH support? Email us at [email protected]

*Updated* Cohort of Recently-hired Educators (CORE)

The Cohort of Recently Hired Educators, or CORE is a Community of Practice designed to offer actionable instructional ideas specific to teaching and learning in engineering courses. The CORE series was kicked off at the beginning of the semester. Resources from the kick-off can be found in the CORE resource folder. On-demand content, community of practice meetings and instructional coaching will be offered throughout the year for our CORE group. 

Reach out to Stefani Jenkins at [email protected] if you would like to join this year’s cohort.

*Updated* On-demand content

Expanding on the popularity of Quick Reference Guides and responding to a need for more “just-in-time” resources, the LTH is working to develop and curate more on-demand content for the Fulton Schools community. These self-paced modules can be utilized independently or provide a backdrop for live discussions. The initial offering “Teaching at Fulton: Nuts and Bolts” was made available to new faculty this fall and is available on the LTH website. More to come!

Educator Networking Group and Gatherings in Engineering (ENGAGE)

*Updated *  Fulton Schools of Engineering Education Seminars (SEEdS) 

LTH will continue to host monthly guest speaker seminars for the community to regularly learn about and discuss topics related to engineering education. The seminars, formerly known as the Teaching Community of Practice, or TCP, are open to anyone interested in the Fulton Schools community.

Join us for the fall workshops from noon–1 p.m. MST on Zoom:

  • Friday, Sept. 15, 2023: Learning Engineering: Creating impact with inclusive learning systems, with guest speaker Scotty Craig, ASU
  • Friday, Oct. 27, 2023: My Active Learning Origin Story, with guest speaker Roneisha Worthy, Kennesaw State University
  • Friday, Nov. 17, 2023: Promoting Engineering Persistence Through Peer-Led Study Groups, with guest speaker Ryan Milcarek, ASU

The LTH professional learning calendar will be updated soon to reflect these updates and include opportunities from across ASU and beyond.
