Learning Skills In The 21st Century
Katie teaches a monthly workshop titled “Learning Skills In The 21st Century” that encourages students to rethink the way they study. Students discuss their previous study habits and learn new methods to create triggers that help them recall information. This workshop also uses web 2.0 tools to display different tools that can be used to help with studying.
S.M.A.R.T. Goals is a monthly workshop taught by Katie that reinforces the importance of setting goals. Students learn how to effectively write goals using the S.M.A.R.T. model. A portion of this workshop is hands-on where students spend time writing out their goals and sharing them with fellow students.
Best Practices for Teaching Online and On Campus
The Best Practices for Teaching Online and On-Campus workshop is designed for hybrid teachers to share best practices. The workshop also shares methods for staying organized and keeping class materials fresh when switching between teaching on campus and online.
Mentoring Students Outside The Classroom
Katie designed and hosted a Mentoring Students Outside The Classroom workshop that fostered a conversation regarding best practices of mentoring online and on-campus students. Faculty members also brainstormed ways that they could adopt a mentoring approach outside their classroom.
