On behalf of the Bay Area Campus Academic Affairs Department, I invite you to the first GFM of the new fiscal year 2013, held at the San Jose Learning Center.

In addition to the workshop descriptions below, please note that we will be supporting Wardrobe for Opportunity, and will accept donations of new or gently used business attire for the disadvantaged and unemployed.

Designing Assessments around Learning Objectives
Informal assessment of student learning is an essential part of effective instruction. Using differentiated instruction principles, School of Business faculty Carol Solinger addresses the ever-present question, “how do I know that my students know?” Participants will take away some new and affirming ideas centered on assessing student learning that enable the user to adjust instruction according to the needs of the learner.
Teaching Across Different Generations
A typical classroom at UOPX resembles some workplace settings where there are multiple generations that are expected to work collaboratively toward substantially productive ends. School of Business faculty Glorieta Robinson leads a workshop that focuses on understanding the students is in the classroom, the characteristics of different generations, and identifying and understanding the motivations of these diverse cohorts of students.
Having Fun in the Classroom
With all of the objectives to cover within any given course, it can sometimes be easy to leave out an element of fun necessary to maintain student engagement. This workshop focuses on using opportunities within the active learning model that capitalize on student engagement opportunities and, by extension, enhance the student and instructor relationship.
What I Tell Students/Staff Panel
With change as a recurring theme throughout academic life at the University, consistent communication from administration to faculty is essential to keeping faculty informed of the context of new policy and procedures. Campus Director Stacy McAfee facilitates a workshop that focuses on advisement students receive throughout their career at the University. With this knowledge, faculty will leave with a better understanding of what students are told and what resources are provided.
Learning teams continue to provide a unique set of rewards and challenges for teaching at the University. By exemplifying the University’s teaching and learning model through engaging in the learning team process, lead faculty area chair Chris Page shows how the learning team dynamic can be managed to yield maximum return for both instructors and students.
