Adjunct Saturday

Saturday, March 2, 2024 10:30am to 2pm

Adjunct faculty members are critical in higher education and deserve focused professional development.

If you are an adjunct faculty member interested in learning more about effective teaching and learning practices, please consider joining us for our Adjunct Super Saturday Faculty Forum on Teaching and Learning. Super Saturday is a professional development opportunity for new and experienced adjunct faculty. Programming runs from 10:30am until 2:00pm and encompasses several components related to teaching at Marshall. 

Session 1: 10:30 am - 11:30 am
What is ChatGPT and why can't I just ignore it?

This session will focus on the capabilities of generative Al, how students are using generative Al (for better or worse), and strategies for faculty to incorporate and/or work around generative Al, especially for assignments that are done outside of the physical or virtual classroom.

Session 2: 11:45 a.m. - 12:45 p..m.
Increasing Student Engagement

This session will focus on a number of larger pedagogical strategies to engage students and highlight ways instructors can spark students' interest and help them persist within the course.

Session 3: 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The Power of Story

This session will focus on one well-researched pedagogical strategy to increase student engagement: stories. Most college courses focus on "what" content students are supposed to learn.

Student engagement, however, often depends on the instructor's ability to weave a coherent and memorable "why" on top of all of the outlines, bullet points, and equations. This session will examine different ways to incorporate storytelling techniques into examples, group work, and assignments, with special emphasis on disciplines where the application of these techniques are less obvious.
